Spy shots have emerged of what could be the HTC G2, the follow-up to its original Android-powered smartphone.

Gizmodo has a few spy shots of what it says is the HTC G2. From the front, it looks a lot like the G1 without the slide-out keyboard. This would appeal to those who want an Android phone that's slimmer than the G1, but also means that an on-screen keyboard will be critical to the operation of the device.

We previously reported on a set of images that showed HTC's line-up for the entire year. Perhaps a second look at that is now in order to see if any of them matches the phone in this spy shot. In any case, we can't confirm the veracity of this new development, but perhaps the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will shed some light.
