Sprint redesigns the HTC HeroSprint has finally officially confirmed the HTC Hero’s launch, ending weeks of rumours. Interestingly, it seems pretty much all of the rumours were correct. The HTC Hero has had a significant makeover, losing its distinctive chin the process. Also, the launch date has also been confirmed as October 11th, with pre-orders starting today.

The press release suggests that the internals of Sprint’s HTC Hero is exactly the same as the current model – the main change is just aesthetics. However, given the major redesign, I’m still not sure why HTC/Sprint just didn’t rename the model.

In terms of price, the HTC Hero will cost $179.99 upfront (pre-tax and after all rebates). This is for a two-year contract costing from $69.99 per month. It will be available via the Sprint website and Best Buy retail stores. Check out some larger snaps of the new handset after the break.
