HTC has released some excellent phones over the last year, but word on the street is they are planning to up the ante in early 2013. Several sources have begun mentioning a mysterious flagship phone with the code name of “M7″. According to the tipsters the M7 will come equipped with a 5-inch HD display (probably the same 1080p monster found on the Droid DNA), a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core processor, and a 13-megapixel camera, all wrapped in a high quality uni-body aluminum shell that HTC has become known for. The device is said to be slated for a Q1 release date, and HTC is currently working with parts suppliers to ensure a delivery of 4 to 5 million units. It sounds like HTC is working hard to turn around its falling financial numbers.
Details are still scarce regarding the M7 and Chinese site Inpai is stating that we might even see some Tegra 4 based HTC phones around this time frame, hinting that the M7 might be one of them. Since we don’t know much about this mystery phone, the sad truth is that it could possibly turn out to be a Windows Phone device (which would be highly unfortunate to say the least). We’ll just have to wait this one out. Check out the source links below if you’re hungry for more information.
