HTC M7 might not have a different name at launch
Ever since the first rumors about the HTC M7 have appeared, everyone assumed and reported that “M7” was just a codename – so the official name of the new device should be different. But it looks like that’s not the case.
According to Focus Taiwan, “corporate sources” have confirmed the handset would be called “HTC M7” when it launches.
As you may already know, the M7 will be officially announced on February 19, during two events held in London and New York. This will be the first time when HTC introduces a new device simultaneously in the US and the UK.
If previously leaked details are correct, the HTC M7 sports a 4.7 inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixels, being the Taiwanese company’s second Full HD handset (the first one, of course, is the Droid DNA / Butterfly). Other features should include Android Jelly Bean, Sense 5.0 UI, LTE connectivity, NFC, Beats Audio, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, 12MP or 13MP rear camera, MicroSD card support, 32GB of internal memory, and a 2,300 mAh battery.
The M7 could be available for purchase starting March 8, apparently in two color versions (black and silver / white). In the US, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint should all offer the new device. It remains to be seen if they’ll all do it in March.
Later this year, HTC will also introduce the M5 and G2 smartphones, the first one featuring a 4.3 inch HD display, and the second one coming with a 3.5 inch HVGA screen.
