There is speculation that the Sony phone in the photo above could be their upcoming 6.44-inch Xperia device codenamed Togari, and that the HTC device above and to the right of Sony’s device could be the rumored HTC M4. It’s hard to tell the exact size of these devices to match them with their leaked specs, considering the awkward angle of the photo, but it seems about right. However, recent reports are saying that the photo is indeed a hoax, and Nokia has even released a statement saying that the blue Nokia Windows 8 device in the top right of the photo is not real. We’ll just have to wait to find out the truth on this photo. Check back for more updates.

You remember that mysterious HTC smartphone we have been talking about lately? You know— the one that’s supposed to be a prettier version of the One smartphone? Well it appears that we are finally getting more concrete details about the device… and boy is this mysterious toy shaping up to be a real beauty. According to the serial (but mildly inconsistent) leaker DigiTimes, the M4 is not only going to be a revision of the existing One smartphone, but it will be made out of a metal-alloy chassis produced by Catcher Technology— all in the hopes of avoiding a supply issue kind of like what we saw with the One.
While the One smartphone will likely sell like hotcakes, HTC expects its M4 to sell well regardless. Additional reports are indicating that HTC is expected to start shipments in June, with around 700,000 devices aiming to arrive in the second quarter.
You didn’t think the M7 would be the only phone HTC would offer this year did you? We just got word on two more phones, codenamed M4 and G2. We probably won’t see these guys at the launch events on February 19, but they should hit stores this spring.
The M4 is going to sit just below the M7, much like the One S was to the One X. It will feature a 4.3-inch 720p display, a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 lens, 1.6MP front camera, and a 1700mAh battery.
