More pictures of the HTC M7 with Sense 5.0 surface

As far as pre-announcement rumors, I think it’s safe to say that last year’s One X didn’t get quite the attention that this year’s “M7” is getting. For whatever reason, it seems as though leaks for the upcoming HTC “M7” are coming in on a daily basis. Could it be that HTC is trying to create a little hype? Yesterday we saw a render that was as close to the real thing as possible, but today we have real pictures of what looks like the final phone. It really doesn’t look much different than the render we saw yesterday, but since it’s a real phone in hand, it adds credibility. There’s also a bonus in that we have more images of Sense 5.0.

As you can see the design isn’t much different than what we have been seeing from HTC lately. It takes cues from the 8X and the DROID DNA. The most glaring thing I can take out of yesterday’s pic and today images is the swapping of the home and task buttons. What is up with that? Why would HTC change the format all of a sudden and get away from the Google’s stock format? It makes no sense (no pun intended).

Speaking of Sense, similar to the images we have seen in the past, the new UI continues to looks minimalist. We don’t know for sure, but looking at the image on top, there could be a completely new clock widget, which would be the first major change in at least 3 years. There also appears to be newer widgets that in some ways resemble windows 8 tiles.

We are a little over a month away from the official unveiling so I am sure we will be treated to more leaks, but I would say that these pictures are probably reasonably close, but then again, HTC could be playing games with us trying to create a little hype.

    Bleh, thats it ? i hope not it looks like they have run out of inspiration.
    seems the same camera failings as the one X, the same poor speaker placement, and a big gap from the buttons and the bottom of the device.

    Its looking like the one x all over again in a slightly re-engineered body with the same failings.

    Its not really standing out from HTC’s existing line of phones.
