HTC M4 is just a mini HTC One, should be launched with LTE, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
HTC’s One flagship smartphone has been praised for its build quality (among other things), and it looks like the Taiwanese company is going to introduce a smaller version of the handset. It’s the long-rumored HTC M4 – which, if the image posted by Phone Arena / EVleaks is legit, is very similar to the One.
The M4 should come with the same aluminum construction, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, LTE connectivity, a 4.3 inch HD (1280 x 720) display, dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 1,700 mAh battery.
Reportedly, the HTC M4 will be released this quarter, possibly in June. It will compete with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini – this seemingly has a 4.3 inch display, too, but it’s expected to be introduced sometime in July.
We’ve heard that the One would be the only HTC smartphone to be released under this brand this year, so the M4 is probably going to have a name that doesn’t include “One” in it – maybe it’s going to be included in the Desire series. We’ll see.
Another unannounced Android smartphone that HTC could introduce this year is the G2. This should be smaller than both the One and the M4, featuring a 3.5 inch HVGA display, 1GHZ single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal memory.
