HTC’s M7 Android Jelly Bean flagship to be announced at CES 2013?

As we reported last month, HTC is readying a new flagship Android smartphone for the first half of 2013. Currently codenamed HTC M7, the new handset will be the successor to the One X and One X+.

We assumed the M7 would be announced by HTC at MWC (in February), but it looks like it could be officially presented next week, at CES 2013 (January 8 – January 11). This rumor comes via Twitter, from XDA member Football – who has been correct in the past when unveiling HTC-related information.

It’s said that, unlike the One X, the M7 could “have screen buttons instead of hardware touch buttons.” Other than that, the device should feature a 4.7 inch display with 1920 x 1080p pixels, LTE, HSPA+, quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, Beats Audio, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and a 2,300 mAh battery.

As you probably already know, HTC already has a 1080p smartphone: the Droid DNA / HTC Butterfly.

It remains to be seen if the M7 will be included in the One series, or if it’s going to come with a completely new name – like the Butterfly did.

Regardless of its final name, the HTC M7 will compete – among others – with Google’s Motorola xPhone, Samsung’s Galaxy S4, LG’s Optimus G2, and Sony’s Xperia Z / ZL.
