New images reveal a familiar-looking HTC M4

New images reveal a familiar-looking HTC M4

Yes, we’re all giddy over the HTC M7, but let’s not forget that HTC is also working on the HTC M4. The mid-range Android phone isn’t in the same league as the M7, but it should be an appealing option for anyone hoping to get a decently-equipped device at a good price.

While we know a lot about the HTC M4′s spec sheet (4.3 inch display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, 2 and 5 megapixel cameras), we now have an idea of what the device will looks like, thanks to a handful of leaked images. As you can see from the pictures below, the HTC M4 bears a few similarities with the HTC M7 and the HTC One X from last year. But what caught our attention was the camera on the front and the speaker grill. Oddly enough, the new pictures of the HTC M4 look very similar to a leaked rendering of a white HTC M7 (source) which showed up in the middle of January.

We don’t see any reason to doubt the authenticity of the HTC M4  pictures, but they do raise some issues with the images we have seen of the HTC M7. We have seen multiple images of a black HTC M7 which is dramatically different than the white render of the device and HTC’s recent tease of a new sound experience gives even more credence the image that shows stereo speakers on the front of the device.

Could HTC be pulling a Samsung here? Last year, Samsung went to great length to hide the final design of the Galaxy S III. Many of the engineers who worked on the project had no clue what the final design even looked like since they used special cases and even had alternate designs of the phone during development. Alternately, HTC could have a design specifically for North America and another design for Europe and the rest of the world. It’s impossible to know.

    Hi, The Japanese kddi Infobar A02 specs (by HTC) list the WiFi as 802.11/b/g/n/ac. Is this new grouyp of phones likely to be 802.11ac capable?

    Hey, will the M4 equip with 2GB RAM, 1300 and 130 mega-pixels camera, and a 720p screen?

    I have once heard another rumor like above, which will be true?

    If the higher one comes true, I will take my wallet out…

    So it’s basically an HTC Rezound with a better camera. I hope they redesign it, though. Maybe they’ll call it the HTC Astound?

    I hope this is not the M4. I was hoping it would have a similar body the M7. What happened to other images leaked some time ago which looked like a smaller M7?
