Most of the news about HTC as of late has centered around their oft-rumored flagship phone, the HTC M7, but today we have learned of a few other handsets that HTC has in the works for 2013. The two new devices, code-named the HTC M4 and the HTC G2 probably will not show up at HTC’s February 19th event, or at Mobile World Congress, and will most likely be released later in the spring. We are, however, seeing signs pointing to the release of the HTC M7 soon after it’s announcement.
It looks as though HTC will be releasing the M4 as a companion to the M7, a premium device with specs slightly below those of the M7. The M4 should feature a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, Android 4.2, a 4.3-inch screen with 720p resolution, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage capacity, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 1-megapixel camera on the front. Sense 5.0 will come pre-installed, and it will be LTE ready. Compare that to the M7 which shares almost the same specs, the only difference lying in the M4’s front-facing camera, and 16GB of storage as opposed to the M7’s 32GB.
The G2 (no relation to the previous G2 released on T-Mobile by HTC) looks to be an entry-level device similar to the HTC Desire C. The G2 is rumored to share mostly the same as the Desire C. The G2 will reportedly be running Android 4.0, and touting a 3.5-inch HVGA display, 512MB RAM, 4GB of storage, and a five-megapixel camera. The big difference between the HTC Desire C and the rumored G2 is in the processor; the G2’s processor is rumored to be running at 1GHz, compared to the Desire C’s 600MHz.
Form factors, pricing and even the names of the devices are in flux, so keep checking back for more details.
