New details emerge for female-focused HTC Bliss

New images and rumors come into focus for Verizon Wireless' female-friendly Android phone, the HTC Bliss.

Verizon and HTC are expected to debut the Bliss in late September.

The first live images of the upcoming HTC Bliss have arrived online, giving us a clear look as to what lies ahead for the rumored female-friendly handset. Expected to arrive in late September, the Bliss reportedly will offer an 800MHz processor, a 3.7-inch display, and a new 3.5 version of HTC's Sense UI. These new pictures, obtained by a member of, suggest we'll also see a front-facing camera.

Rumors of the female-targeted handset first surfaced back in May when This Is My Next learned that HTC was conducting focus groups with women in their 20s and 30s. The manufacturer was gauging interest in a device that would potentially feature preinstalled apps for calorie-counting and shopping.

Screenshots of HTC's Sense 3.5 also have leaked online, which initially don't appear all that dissimilar to the current 3.0 version. According to the source of the images, HTC may have loosened the hardware requirements a bit as to allow the experience across a wider range of devices.
