What's in a Name? Mythical M7 to be Called HTC One

Just days away before HTC's media event February 19th in New York City, evleaks claims that that the rumored M7 super-phone will be released with a simplified, albeit less sexier, name: the HTC One. Meanwhile a photo taken with an HTC One popped up on Flickr, which also backs reports that the upcoming flagship device would have industry-first ultrapixel camera, which uses three 4.3-megapixel sensor layers to generate crisper images. More proof of an M7/One coming up is a press render obtained by evleaks that shows just two capacitive keys for Home and Back (minus the Recent Apps button) and the new Sense 5 UI overlay.

What Else You Need To Know

  • Aside from the Ultrapixel camera and the Sense 5 skin, the M7 is rumored sport a 1080p, full HD 4.7-inch display, 1.7GHz quad-core processor, a metallic unibody design, Android Jelly Bean operating system, and an IR port that allows the phone to be used as a universal remote control.

HTC M7 vs HTC One in name change plan  

HTC already have the HTC One series that includes the low-end phone called the HTC One V, other names include the likes of One S the One X, XL, and the HTC One X+, so to simply have the HTC M7 as the HTC One does not sound so nice and even less sexier than the other variants such as the V, S, X, XL and X+, all they will be doing in knocking off the letters at the end and giving us a name that sounds lower-end that the V model, we might be wrong in our thinking and that is why we are calling out to our readers.
