HTC M7 revealed in high-resolution render
Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you the HTC M7. Last week, an image was making its way across the web which many believed to be a render of the upcoming HTC M7. While the source of the image claimed that it was pulled from an early firmware build of the device, one of our sources (who has spent quality time with the HTC M7) said that the image did resemble the M7 in any way.
Fortunately, yesterday afternoon, we got a tip from one of our readers (thanks neo) which led us down a bit of a rabbit hole. After countless dead ends, a half dozen emails and help from our trusted sources, we were able to dig up the image above. Two trusted sources claims that this new render is an accurate depiction of the HTC M7. Unlike last week’s render of the phone, the new image matches up with the one blurry cam pic we saw of the HTC M7 during CES (mainly the straight lined speaker grill and placement of the HTC logo above the screen) and the iconography also matches the leaked HTC Sense 5 screen shots. We are told that there may be some slight cosmetic differences (mainly coloring) between carrier branded versions of the HTC M7, but the overall look and feel of the device will be globally recognizable.
The design of the HTC M7 should look familiar since HTC has pulled in a lot of the accents from the HTC 8X. We originally thought that HTC wanted to keep the deign language of its Windows Phone and Android devices separate, but HTC apparently decided against it.
What are your thoughts on the design of the HTC M7 and the new render of the device? Do you think HTC’s design team is moving in the right direction?
