HTC is expected to unveil the smartphone in early 2013
Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation is expected to bring to the Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona a new high-end device, rumored to land on shelves as HTC M7.The phone is said to sport a high-resolution touchscreen display, along with a powerful processor inside, and to run under Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
While nothing has been officially confirmed on the new handset, enthusiasts are already dreaming of it, and some even come up with their own renderings of the phone, based on previously leaked info.
Hasan Kaymak is one such enthusiast, who envisioned the upcoming 2013 Android-based flagship handset from HTC with looks similar to those of HTC Butterfly.
The HTC M7 concept device sports a 4.7 inch SLCD 3 touchscreen display that can deliver a 1080p resolution, while also featuring a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor inside, most probably with an upgraded graphical unit.
Furthermore, the handset sports a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for full HD video recording capabilities, along with a 2.1-megapixel front camera for making video calls.
The upcoming mobile phone also sports Beats Audio integration, along with a 2300 mAh battery, as well as the usual set of connectivity options found in today’s high-end devices.
The concept device runs under Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, with HTC’s own Sense 5.0 user interface loaded on top, specifically built to fit the outer design of the smartphone.
HTC has yet to officially confirm the existence of this smartphone, as well as the hardware specs and features that it would arrive on shelves with, so we’ll take the available info on its capabilities with a grain of salt for the time being.
However, should the handset indeed resemble the concept phone that can be seen in the photos attached to this article, it will certainly prove a hit, thus helping HTC regain its foothold on the smartphone segment.
