M7, the next Android-based flagship smartphone from Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC, is now expected to make an official appearance on shelves in France on March 8.
According to a leaked document that emerged over at FrAndroid
, the handset will sport a price tag of €649.99 ($879) when launched, which is quite a lot, one should agree.
However, the rumored hardware specifications for this device appear to make it worth all that money, starting with the 4.7-inch full HD screen it is said to sport on the front.
Furthermore, the HTC M7 is expected to arrive on shelves with a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor packed inside, complemented by 2GB of RAM.
It would also sport 32GB of internal memory, along with a microSD memory card slot to provide users with storage expansion capabilities.
On the back, the new device
should feature a 13-megapixel photo snapper, with support for full HD video recording, while also packing a front camera for video chatting purposes.
The specs list of this high-end smartphone also includes 4G capabilities, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, NFC support, Double HP Techno Beats Audio, and a 2,300 mAh battery.
Rumor has it that HTC has loaded Google’s Android Jelly Bean operating system on the M7, with its own HTC Sense 5.0 user interface on top of it.
Although set to arrive in France in early March, provided that the rumor above pans out, the smartphone might be officially introduced earlier, at a press event that HTC will be holding on February 19.
No official confirmation on the matter has been provided so far, but the handset vendor did tease a new launch
for the near future, and the M7 appears to be the perfect candidate for it. The smartphone is also expected to sport the HTC M7 name when brought to shelves.
