HTC_M7_Phone_House_Leak_France

 

We’ve already seen a few hints indicating HTC’s newest beast would be called the M7 smartphone, while featuring some pretty beastly specs— but it appears that we have even more of a confirmation than we already had before. A leaked advertisement from Phone House indicates the unlocked M7 would be available in France from March 8th for 649.99 EUR (around $880). Additionally, the advertisement highlights the M7 will have a 4.7-inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel camera, 32GB internal storage and Sense 5-powered Jelly Bean running the show. While the photo used for the device seems to be based off an old render, it’s looking like everything else is matching up quite nicely— giving us all something to look forward to in the coming weeks.

That February 19th event just can’t come soon enough!

New HTC teaser lets us know they’re bringing something to life very soon

That’s HTC’s latest attempt at keeping us salivating over whatever their next announcement is going to be, whether that’s the M7 or something completely different. If nothing else, it’s creepy. A heart melding together with a circuit is an odd choice for attracting attention to a smartphone, but it does seem to fall in line with calling something the Droid DNA, (if they release a phone named after a kidney, I’m not buying it, I don’t care how awesome it is) so this might be a trend for HTC in the future. Or it could be something software related, like a living personal assistant along the lines of Siri or S-Voice. It’s really anyone’s guess at this point, at least until HTC wants to fill us in during their event scheduled later this month.

HTC M7 could be the final name according to Carphone Warehouse and Vodafone inventory systems

This one is for the really really skeptical. The ones who just don’t believe anything until they see it for real. With a major event coming up in two weeks in London and New York City, there is no doubt the HTC M7 will be unveiled. Still, I am sure there are a few of you that need more convincing. Well look no further then the inventory systems of both Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse because both show the M7.

Seriously though, the biggest part of this news is not the existence but the name. It has been believed the “M7″ was just a codename. Now inventory systems do use codenames, but Carphone Warehouse usually doesn’t. I think there is a good chance that M7 is the final name. That actually surprises me since I thought HTC was trying to simplify their products and come up with a name and go with it, like the Galaxy S or Note series. Of course, I’m not really sure what you would call the second One X other than the One 2X or the Two X, and neither one sounds all that great.

Thanks to HTC M7, get used to the new term “Ultrapixels”

by Jeff Causey on
tagged , , , ,

More HTC M7 news as we close in on HTC’s New York City event next week where the device is expected to officially debut. This bit of news involves the camera technology HTC is incorporating into the M7. Traditionally buyers have become used to assessing the quality of a phone based on the megapixels, with a larger number generally regarded as better. Leaked specifications indicate the M7 will have a 13-megapixel camera, which is not too shabby. However, reports now indicate that HTC will actually use a camera measured in “Ultrapixels.” » Read the rest

Things still looking down for HTC as revenues projected to tumble 17% in Q1

by Jeff Causey on
tagged , , ,

Last week HTC threw a big party for employees to celebrate the start of a new year. CEO Peter Chou was excited to show off the HTC M7 for those in attendance. The big question that still continues to float out there for everyone is whether Chou’s confidence in HTC and their ability to turn things around in 2013 will materialize on the back of new devices or is it too little too late. The new year got off to a rocky start as HTC released new numbers for their first quarter sales projections, and the numbers are not good. HTC is projecting revenues to slip by as much as 17 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.

Keep in mind the fourth quarter of 2012 was a terrible one for HTC, coming in as the lowest quarter of profit in eight years for the company. Their net sales of approximately $34.4 million USD represented a stunning drop of 91% compared to the prior year’s fourth quarter. The march to improved profitably during 2013 will begin in earnest next week when HTC has slated the likely unveiling of the M7 at an event in New York City.

M7 highlighted by HTC’s Chou at company event

HTC CEO Peter Chou has done his bit to added to the HTC M7 fever that continues to ratchet up in advance of an HTC event scheduled for later this month. At a year end celebration held by HTC, Chou got on stage and whipped out the new phone to take a picture of the crowd while playfully mentioning it was “a great opportunity for testing.” Chou also congratulated the M7 team for putting in extra work to wrap things up so production could start. He also touched on some of the challenges of the past year for HTC, which has seen its financial performance nosedive. However, Chou thinks HTC can rebound, let by the M7. Hit the break for the video of Chou with the forthcoming HTC M7.

HTC M7 to be available March 8 with another color option

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged ,

In a few weeks we will finally get our hands on the HTC M7, or whatever they will call, but we are already wondering when it will actually be available. Well Pocketnow was tipped that it will go on sale on March 8th. They could be releasing it in the  UK and Europe first, but since they are holding events in both London and New York, I would imagine  a U.S. release won’t be far behind.

All the images that we have seen of the M7 have been black, but it’s unlikely they will only offer one color, especially since this is going to be a worldwide launch. Word is that the second color option will be silver/white.

It’s clear that HTC is trying to get ahead of Samsung’s Galaxy S IV launch, but will it be enough? Releasing the phone early is a good idea, but throwing some marketing dollars in the mix probably is an even better idea.

We heard rumors that HTC will unveil the M7 before Mobile World Congress and it looks that will come true. An invite just hit our inbox for an event scheduled for February 19 in New York City. I think it’s safe to say it will be the M7, and we are also hearing that there will be an event in London as well. We will be in NYC to get all the juicy details so stay tuned to TalkAndroid.

HTC M7 chassis leaks in new video

by Alexon Enfiedjian on
tagged , , ,

After seeing the leaked press image of the HTC M7 a few weeks ago, little was left to the imagination as we caught a glimpse of HTC’s next super phone in all its glory. Still, a computer render doesn’t give quite the same impression as handling the physical product, which is what we have for you today (well…sort of). A new video has surfaced of the M7′s chassis (back and front) being compared to other HTC flagship phones. Most notably, it seems to share a lot in common with the HTC Droid DNA that we love so much, albeit, packed into a smaller package to suit the M7′s 4.7-inch screen. Besides that we can see that the phone seems to have a dedicated camera button on the right edge, nestled below the volume rocker and even more intriguing, seems to have a front facing speaker, which is something of a rarity in the smartphone world, but certainly could come in useful. Check out the video below and let us know what you think of the M7.

Insider Reports HTC M7 Will Be Released Sooner Than Expected

Italian mobile Insider Flavio (@flapic) tweeted what he is calling an exclusive regarding the upcoming release of the HTC M7 . He predicts it will be released in London on February 19th and not at Mobile World Congress as many of us have expected. He did not disclose a source but later said he has established connections from “many years in the field” and his sources are “reliable and credible.” So he’s legit, if you don’t believe him just ask him and he’ll tell you. All kidding aside, this guy has been around for a while and might be on to something.

Excitement for HTC’s next flagship definitely feels like it’s growing. The M7 will feature a 4.7-inch 1080p display, new Sense 5.0, 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 32GB of internal storage, 2300mAh (likely internal) battery and LTE connectivity. Whether it launches at its own event in London or at MWC in Barcelona at the end of February, we won’t have long to wait.
