With the dust finally settled around the Evo 4G, it's time to start looking forward to HTC's next handset.

The HTC Desire will launch with U.S. Cellular later this summer, but is the Desire HD already in the works?

Though demand is still high for HTC's Evo 4G, the rumor mill is already abuzz about HTC's next big Android phone.

According to a few recent leaks, the Taiwanese handset maker is working on a follow up to the HTC Desire dubbed the Desire HD.  The phone is said to run Android 2.2 and have a 4.3-inch touch screen, an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording HD video, 4GB internal memory, as well as the increasingly popular 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

Also according to the leaks, the phone will support XviD video playback, SRS surround sound, and it will have a "uni-body aluminum design." It sounds to me like this might take a page out of the Legend form factor, and I'm all for that.

It's also worth noting that the Desire HD has also been pegged with a nickname of HTC Ace. It's hard to say at this point which way HTC goes with the naming convention as they don't keep the same branding very often. Although it's not mentioned in the rumors, I wouldn't be surprised to see this phone arrive with HTC's Sense UI later this fall. As of now, the consensus is that this handset will be landing around October.
