HTC Phoebus hits FCC, looks just like the Juno [UPDATE]

A new HTC device dubbed Phoebus has breezed by the FCC and surprisingly it looks a lot like the HTC Juno, which we broke a few weeks ago. Some of the features on the Phoebus are strikingly similar to that of the Juno and I’m inclined to believe that’s what it is. Specs reveal it to be a GSM 850/1900 handset with a 2-megapixel camera. There isn’t a whole lot more to be gleaned from the filing and no pictures of its façade were anywhere.

Update: The Phoebus is the Juno, which is the T-Mobile Shadow. A few more details after the jump.

He told us that it might actually be a VGA screen as the display is just remarkable. The device is “very glossy”, and you can see the screen in direct sunlight no problem, as well. The button in the middle of the phone is actually a scroll wheel and it also performs the duties of a 4-way navigational pad. He also goes on to tell us that we should inform everyone that while the color choices of brown and sage green sound tacky, they are indeed “very classy and look great.” The sage green device has a light champagne colorization on the front, and the back is a soft-touch rubberized finish in a sage green shade. The brown, is well, sparkly brown.
