More details leak for HTC’s mysterious M7: 4.7-inch 1080p display, 13 megapixel camera and more

Last week we reported about a mysterious HTC super phone dubbed the M7, but at the time little was known about the device. Well, today we have some gloriously good details trickling in. For one, the M7 is said to be the successor to HTC’s wildly popular One X. The phone will boast an optically laminated 4.7-inch 1080p display with a whopping pixel density of 468ppi (40% more than the iPhone 5). The optically laminated panel is said to offer improved viewing angles, more accurate color reproduction and a better outdoor viewing experience.

Under the hood you will find a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage powered by a healthy sized 2,300 mAh battery. HTC has always been known to skimp on battery capacity, so it’s nice to see them outdo many of the current flagship phones this time around. As for shooters, you’ll find a 13 megapixel camera around back, and a 2 megapixel front facing camera to capture your handsome mug. The rear facing camera is said to come with some enhanced features, like super slow-motion video recording and HDR video mode. On top of that, the camera is said to use a Cinesensor imaging chip to improve overall image quality. As for software you’ll find Android Jelly Bean topped with HTC’s ever-improving Sense skin; this time Sense 5.

Reportedly, Sprint and Verizon are already on board to offer the M7 to subscribers, and AT&T and T-Mobile are also said to be in discussions to nab the phone. We don’t have a release date quite yet, but rumors are swirling that the M7 will be revealed at Mobile World Congress in the Spring of 2013. Only a few more months until we find out if these rumors are true. Here’s to hoping!

    Whats the point? Should have just released droid dna to all carriers. HTC should stick with flagship devices not carrier specific crap that no one develops for

    • Tony Hedges

      The point is is that if this turns out to be right, it is way better than the droid DNA. A 4.7 inch screen with near on 470 PPI if true would be stunning. Sorry it hasn’t moved you, looks like HTC will have to go back to the drawing board. Halt production, “Mystery Man” is underwhelmed.

    If it doesn’t have removable micro SD, please don’t support it. There is ABSOLUTELY no good reason to remove this option for consumers apart from the manufacturer & carriers benefit. Don’t support this trend. Please!!!
