Name and launch event detailed on HTC's Weibo account

Having leaked out last week, today it seems HTC's next Android device is going to be the Desire 8. The other good news is that it seems those pretty hot looking leaked images are in fact the real deal. It all comes about from a post on the HTC Weibo account in China, talking up a Feb 24. launch event in Beijing.

It also teases a "super-super" camera for the Desire 8, though equally that could be a rough translation. In any case, no specs or other firm details about the phone are available at this time. Purported specs line this up as a giant 5.5-inch mid-range handset, with a 13MP and 5MP combination of cameras – which could account for the "super-super" part.

Of course, Feb. 24 is also the official start of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, so we're hoping that HTC is going to be real nice and also bring something to Spain for us to get our hands on.
