The ever enigmatic Eldar Murtazin has just tweeted two photos, purported to be of the HTC Mazaa, a device which we have so far identified as the CDMA HTC Trophy.

The handset differs however in one important aspect.  According to Eldar, and the twitpics he uploaded, the handset appears to feature a 12 megapixel camera and featuring such niceties as raw image capture, usually reserved for high end cameras.

Of note is also that the handset appear to be running a later version of Windows Phone 7, likely Mango, as the camera interface features an arrow on the lower left absent from the current post-NoDo build but present in the Mango Emulator.

It seems unlikely HTC would re-release the Trophy with updated specs.  An alternate explanation would be that HTC is using old shells for testing handsets to reduce the impacts of leaks just like those from Eldar.
