Rumor: HTC M7 rendering reveals front-facing stereo speakers

Rumor: HTC M7 rendering reveals front-facing stereo speakers

It looks like images of the upcoming HTC M7 device continue to leak out.  The latest image from @evleaks supposedly comes from a SIM card installation tutorial that was included in an early release of the HTC M7 firmware.  This new image portrays a white device with glass covering the front of the device and no bezel on the side.  Additionally, you will notice micro drilled holes below the screen.  Could this mean the presence of front-facing speakers on the M7?  Another interesting fact is that HTC is looking to include an IR port on the new M7, allowing the device to function as a remote.

While it’s nice to see leaked device images, one of our sources (who has spent time with the HTC M7) indicated to us that the image presented is “not even close” to how the actual HTC M7 looks.  Our source continued on and stated that the previously leaked image of the HTC M7, “matches up a lot better” to the actual device.

The Mobile World Congress is next month in Barcelona and we should get the official unveiling of the HTC M7 at that time.  Tell us your thoughts on this new device.  Do you feel that an IR port and possible front-facing speakers are enough to help HTC’s sales this year?

About Steve Raycraft

I am new to the blogging arena, but felt it was something that I could do to share with others my passion for Technology and Android in general. I currently live in Tennessee with my wife. I look forward to working with the guys here at HTCsource and would love feedback on my posts.

    I would be really interesting to see something different than the usual. Lets wait and see.

    they are calling the m7 as HTC Legend 5… features below

    It features a 5-inch Full HD LCD 3 display powered by the recently announced Nvidia Tegra 4 processor clocked at 1.9GHz. Providing the juice is a 4,000 mAh battery unit and you also have the usual Beats Audio enhancements and other HTC add-ons.

    The concept uses the Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean operating system with the HTC Sense 5 Android overlay, and the site has provided a video showing the HTC Sense 5.0 concept lockscreen that you can see below. Camera wise the concept features a 13MP rear shooter with a 2.9MP unit on the front with Full HD capture.

      The two phones (including the one with the spec you mentioned) are purely concept designs only. They will most probably never be built. The rumors (so far) for the M7 are 4.7″ LCD 3 screen, Snapdragon S4 Pro Quad Core chip with 2GB RAM etc.

      By the looks of it the M7 will most probably not have the specs you mentioned & will not look like the concept designs. In fact according to the review above, it will not look like the image above either.

      This images and videos are concepts created by fans, not HTC. While car makers put out concept cars to give us a glimpse of what’s coming down the pipeline in the next few years, HTC and other smartphone makers do not play that same game.

    I’m starting to doubt the HTC M7 will have a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, it will simply be outdated now that there are Exynos 5, Tegra 4 and Snapdragon 800 processors. Evleaks rumor says it will have a “second generation” Snapdragon processor, so I guess it’s Snapdragon S4 Prime or Snapdragon 800… at least if HTC hopes to compete for top place, and beat the Galaxy S4.

      I spoke with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon team at CES last week. While they are sampling the Snapdragon 800 right now to OEM’s the chip will not be mass produced until late Q2. While it would be nice for the M7 to have the latest and greatest chip. Since the M7 is expected to be on the market in Q1, the 1.07GHz quad-core Qualcomm S4 Pro is the only real option.

        HTC then should delay the production then. They can still launch the new devices in Barcelona with better specs. If they use the current chipset, the phone will get outdated in no time.

    I don’t think HTC wants to pull Apple’s string by copying the iPhone 5 in this way…this was made as a fanwar-starter to pull attention right?
