Apple has the iPhone 6, Samsung has the Galaxy S4 and when it comes to HTC, the M7 release date is likely to prove the company’s biggest event of 2013 as a whole.
Rumors and speculation regarding the fabled handset are gathering momentum by the day and we’re well and truly into the stage of discovering dozens of leaks, mockups and sneak-peek images by the boatload. The latest examples come courtesy of Android Police – a site known to have been on the money numerous times before and in this instance we certainly hope they are.
According to the site, these newly leaked images of the HTC M7 are the real deal, depicting the front of the device as sporting a camera sensor at the top and a trio of capacitive buttons toward the bottom of the touchscreen. As had already been suggested by previous reports on the M7, HTC seems to have indeed moved the Home button to the right-hand side.
Flipped over, the HTC M7 depicted in the images sports a camera sensor with a flash that has been moved to the left-hand side, as opposed to the usual right-hand mounted flash of the One X, the Droid DNA and so on. Proudly displayed is the Beat by Dr. Dre logo along with a clearly defined speaker grille.
With a list of specs and features to rival the best in the business, chances are that that HTC M7 will have exactly what it takes to bring the Taiwanese company back to prosperity after a frankly disastrous 2012. The inclusion of HTC Sense 5 running over Android Jelly Bean or Key Lime Pie is expected to bring the user experience up to date with new icons, new functionality and a significant change to the trademark HTC clock widgets.
The HTC M7 is expected to debut at the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month, with a release date to follow for the summer months.
