HTC M7 Could Arrive Ahead of MWC 2013


After the highly anticipated HTC M7 failed to show up at the CES trade show early this month, pundits have been expecting that the super-phone would be showcased at next month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Now reports are saying that HTC's upcoming flagship would be launched in London on February 19th, a week ahead of the MWC. The Android-running device would be the first to feature HTC Sense 5.0, which offers an easier to use UI, a redesigned lock-screen and HTC apps.

What Else You Need To Know

  • Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint are offering the M7, according to the reports, indicating that T-Mobile would be the lone major U.S. carrier to pass on the launch of HTC's new phone.
  • The 4.7-inch HTC M7 is rumored sport impressive specs, including a 1080p, full HD display, 1.7GHz quad-core processor, 13MP rear facing camera, 2MP front facing camera, a metallic unibody design, and an IR port that allows the phone to be used as a universal remote control.

As for the three US carriers supposedly “confirmed” to sell the M7, we have to say we’re a bit surprised of Verizon. Big Red has always been tight with HTC, but do the carrier’s customers really need a sized down version of the Droid DNA with just a few extra muscles? After all, the 5-incher has only started selling last November.
