New HTC One M7 teased before February 19 announcement
In case it wasn’t clear already, HTC’s next Android flagship smartphone will be officially unveiled next week, on February 19.
There are countdown timers for that date on HTC’s US and UK websites (here and here), and in the background there’s even a teaser video. What does that show us? Well, a new handset, of course – which has to be the HTC M7 (rumored to be called simply HTC One when it hits the market).
Of course, the video doesn’t reveal much, but it clearly implies the One M7’s rear camera will be one of its strong points. As previously rumored, this should bring a new technology, based on Ultrapixels, not Megapixels. It remains to be seen if this is enough to compete with Nokia’s PureView cameras.Check out the teaser below (via AndroidOS):
The HTC One / M7 will run Android Jelly Bean, featuring a 4.7 inch Full HD display, Sense 5 UI, quad-core Qualcomm processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory. Unlocked, it could cost €649.99 in Europe.
Other two new Android Jelly Bean smartphones that should be released by HTC this year are the M4 (featuring a 4.3 inch HD screen), and the G2 (sporting a 3.5 inch HVGA display). These may not be the final names of the handsets. We’ll let you know more soon.
