New HTC M7 details come into focus – could launch on all four major U.S. service providers

New HTC M7 details come into focus – could launch on all four major U.S. service providers

We still have a few weeks to go before 2013 is here, but that doesn’t mean we have to wait that long to immerse ourselves in new details of the HTC M7 – HTC’s flagship Android phone for 2013. The last time we write about the HTC M7, we reported that it would feature a 5-inch HD display, a uni-body aluminum shell, Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core processor and a 13 megapixel camera. Since then, it looks like the specs have changed a little, but the M7 will still be quite an impressive device.

According to Unwired View, the main draw of the HTC M7 will be its optically laminated 4.7-inch full HD 1080p display with a pixel density of 468ppi (40% higher than the iPhone 5). The HTC M7 will be powered by a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The camera will also be quite impressive with an f/2.0 lens and 13 megapixel sensor for the main camera which features an advanced Cinesensor imaging chip capable of enhanced image quality and super slow-motion and HDR video capture. The front-facing camera on the HTC M7 will be able to capture 2 megapixel images and both will shoot video in full 1080p. The M7 is expected to run on Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5 and it is said to have a 2300 mAh battery.

Like the HTC 8X and HTC Droid DNA, the HTC M7 will feature a Beats-designed amplifier for the 3.5mm headphone jack and speakerphone, but the M7 will be the first phone in HTC’s Android lineup with a stereo speakerphone for improved audio quality. The last small improvement for the HTC m7 is its inclusion of the new 802.11ac WiFi standard which sports theoretical throughput that are three times higher than today’s 802.11n WLAN standard.

We’re still not sure where or when the HTC M7 will be unveiled, but the latest report indicated that Verizon and Sprint be picking it up with T-Mobile and AT&T possibly making the list as well. There are still a lot of unanswered questions about the HTC M7, so we’ll keep you posted is we come across any additional news.

    If it doesn’t launch on all 4 HTC has lost my business and it will be to go to an inferior (imo) product (s3 or whatever Sammy puts out that is new) I love HTC phones but the fact that all of their major devices are only on 1 carrier is just plain dumb. I am on tmo and the only option I have is the forgotten HTC ones

      I agree T-mobile needs an upgrade to the Htc One S. While AT&T got the One X and the One X+ people on T-mobile are still stick with the inferior One S

    I was going to pick up the Butterfly but will wait for the M7 instead! Let’s hope it comes in LTE Band 3 also.

    March ’13 cannot come soon enough!

  • androidMack

    Plus an xl model with a big battery…why not dominate the high end android market worldwide.????

    The Butterfly and Deluxe will not be coming to the UK. Shame since I was interested in the Butterfly. Will the M7 becoming to the UK?

    The HTC “M7” (This is the stuff that would make it perfect in my eyes at least)

    Just a few things I would love to see in the new HTC “M7″ that I know are probably not going to make it into this phone :-( One… can dream at least. (Pun intended)

    1. Quad Core A15 Processor (Exynos5, Tegra4 etc.) but the A9.5 S4 Pro is still nice (not a deal breaker) although microUSB 3.0 (supported only on A15 processors) would be epic!
    2. 64GB storage space (like the One X+) and not a GB less more would be ok though :) Unless they include an SDcard slot! Then 32 or even 16 are ok… (This would be a deal breaker like the DNA)
    3. Screen size of 5″ would be nice but 4.7″ is nice as well good pocket-able size (to me both are good, I just like 5″ a bit more)
    4. Big Battery!!! At 2300mAh the tiny battery (look up: RAZR HD) might be ok but IF it’s any less than that it will NEED to be removable! (Deal breaker for this too)

    A few things that I always see popping up that pi$s people off are Storage Space and Battery life/size (and yes, battery size) even though each phone consumes batteries at different rates people just like bigger batteries period. Same with STORAGE! Cloud sucks, fine its ok BUT if you have data caps and speed issues and coverage issues and… Ahhh damn it just put more storage in the phone already!

    I probably won’t be getting this phone because of HTC’s track record; they always have a nice phone with a few MAJOR flaws/items missing that would otherwise make it a bomb shell great phone… wtf HTC…

    Hint for HTC: best of “J Butterfly” + best of “One X+” + a real battery = Perfect high end halo phone! (Notice: I didn’t say Droid DNA because lack of SDcard slot hint hint). It’s not like they don’t have the tech/stuff to make a phone like this, they just need to put it a SINGLE phone already and release it with no modifications on all the carriers. Kind of like Samsung… Hmm and I wonder why Samsung sold so many phones. You know it’s not all about advertising (a good chuck of it is), you also have to have great hardware not just ok hardware that’s not up to par in ALL aspects.
