HTC’s 2013 flagship, codenamed ‘M7,’ detailed online
Details regarding HTC’s 2013 flagship, codenamed ‘M7,’ have appeared online and it sounds like the biggest and best HTC yet
Never one to back down from a fight, HTC’s new alleged flagship handset, said to be codenamed the M7, has leaked online ahead of its scheduled 2013 release date.
Packing a 13-megapixel camera, a 4.7-inch display with a pixel density of 468ppi, and a quad-core 1.7GHx processor the M7 has the makings of being the biggest and best HTC handset seen to date.
The HTC M7 will launch in spring 2013, according to Unwired View. That kind of rules out a CES 2013 launch but opens up the possibility of an official debut at IFA 2013, which takes place later on in the year.
The M7 will no doubt be Android-powered, perhaps even carrying Google’s Key Lime Pie update, although that will depend entirely on when its released. So far we don't know much about the Big G's plans for Android 5.0, other than it'll most likely be launched at Google’s I/O 2013 event.
Will it be enough to save HTC? Well-designed, high-end devices have never been the Taiwanese manufacturer’s problem. It’s produced plenty over the past 18 months. What it can’t control is the might of Samsung, a company that now dominates the entire Android landscape.
Perhaps the M7 could be the phone that reestablishes HTC as a key player in the mobile space?
