HTC M7 launching in Q1 2013 with 5-inch HD screen, Snapdragon S4 Pro, 13MP camera and uni-body aluminum case

Although the HTC Droid DNA has been just recently announced, the Taiwanese company is already looking to launch another device. And I’m not talking about the international version of the DNA called HTC DLX, but a whole new phone which, to be fair, will be pretty similar to the existing one. However, instead of coming in a plastic body, the forthcoming HTC M7 will sport a fancy lookin’ uni-body aluminum case. Moreover, its camera will have a 13-megapixel sensor, while the rest of the specs will remain the same, with Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro providing the processing power needed to run things smoothly. The screen will have a 5-inch diagonal, and will be capable of showing full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution.

According to multiple sources, HTC is already working with semiconductor and casing suppliers to secure enough components to manufacture 4 to 5 million units of the HTC M7 in the first quarter of 2013. The idea is to have a phone ready for market before Samsung launches the new Galaxy S device, which impacted HTC’s sales this year, big time. Then again, the One X was available before the Galaxy S III and that hasn’t helped HTC grow its numbers. We’ll see whether this time they have what it takes to stay in the game…

    Yeah but we first have to get the Butterfly over here in Europe.

    I will be eligible for an upgrade in January, so most likely this will be my next phone. However, it has to have a removable battery and an SD slot. 5″ is a bit too big, in my opinion, but that seems to be where things are going now. I love my HTC Rezound. To me it’s perfect. But, the phone is getting very worn down. Here’s hoping for the best! I’m a HUGE HTC fan…

  • I agree. If it doesn’t have removable battery I won’t even consider it

  • The Sense

    I am a pretty big fan of HTC although i have Galaxy S3 but, for my next phone, i will probably be going with an HTC phone mainly because i love their phone designs way more than samsungs cheap plastic. i also really like Sense UI way more than TouchWiz. i will be going with an HTC phone for my next upgrade.

      I’m also a fan of Sense. I know people like to knock it, but I’ve had a couple of Androids without it, and as soon as I get HTC with Sense, it feels very comfortable to operate. I just don’t like the 5″ screen deal.. too big, but I will go with it if the specs are really good! HTC only for me!
