HTC is evidently working on a flagship Android phone for 2013. The phone called the HTC M7 is rumored to replace its One X and its superior variant the One X+. As we know, the HTC M7 will be a rival to Samsungâ€™s Galaxy S IV and Apple iPhone 5S next year. Little is known about the specifications of the device. As per rumors, it may have many bumped-up features from the current HTC flagship the One X. We make a tour through the rumors regarding the handset here.
HTC M7 Release Date
As per Unwired View, the Taiwan tech maker is to unveil the handset at the Mobile World Congress 2013 in February in Barcelona. HTC unveiled its One X series at MWC this year. So we have enough reason to expect the next flagship Android phone from HTC in the same event. MWC is one of the worldâ€™s top mobile trade shows. Samsung is also rumored to display its next version Galaxy S IV in the event. Anyway, the Barcelona event will bring out lots of new handsets to the market.
HTC M7 Tech Specs
The HTC handset is rumored to mount a 4.7-inch FullHD 1080p display. It will be one of the first FullHD smart phones in the 4.7-inch category. All other 1080p handsets fall in the 5-inch phablet category. With a bit small display, pixel density of the M7 will expand up to a whopping 468-ppi, sources say. The handset is further expected to mount a SoLux display. It can provide great visual clarity over its predecessor Super LCD2 and so you will be enjoying great display clarity and perfection.
Under the hood, the M7 is speculated to pack a second generation quad-core CPU from Qualcomm. The new processor may clock at an aggressive 1.7GHz per core. Plus, the device will have 2GB of RAM and a far better graphical processor. For data storage, the device will have a higher 32GB of internal memory other than microSD slot for expanding memory to new highs.
Of course, the M7 will be of 4G LTE capable. The phone will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update. Along with the fresh firmware, the device will be rich with HTCâ€™s new Sense 5 UI. There will be a 13MP advanced autofocus camera with the handset. It can shoot video at 1080p.Â For better power backup, the HTC phone will pack a powerful 2300mAh battery.
â€œAs a natural progression to this yearâ€™s One series – marketed with the tagline â€œAmazing camera, authentic soundâ€ – the M7 will attempt to take both image capture and audio playback to new levels. Whereas the One X/X+ features an eight-megapixel sensor and f/2.2 lens, the M7 has been tipped to sport a 13MP CCD and even larger f/2.0 lens,â€ says Unwired Viewâ€™s analyst.
HTC M7 Rivals
Needless to say, the entire line of the released or rumored 5-inch FullHD handsets will be rivals to the M7. Already we have phones like Oppo Find 5 and Sharp Aquos Phone other than HTCâ€™s DROID DNA in the U.S. and J Butterfly in Japan. Companies like Samsung, LG, Huawei and ZTE are busy working with the same phablets. Hence, things will not be much good in tech market.
Samsungâ€™s next generation Galaxy S IV will be a huge threat to the HTC phone. Currently, the mobile market is ruthlessly dominated by Samsung. The company will only produce an upgrade to the SIII with a goal to keep the seriesâ€™ domination in mobile market. For sure, a 4.99-inch 1080p FullHD Galaxy S IV will be an intense fighter against the rumored HTC phone with the same display technology.
