Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation is reportedly gearing up for the release of new Android-based handsets in the near future, including the newly leaked HTC M4 and HTC G2 smartphones, which will complement the previously spotted HTC M7, it seems.

For the time being, however, “M4” and “G2” are only codenames for the two handsets, and it remains to be seen what market names they will spot. The same applies to M7, it seems.

No specific info on when these new devices might arrive on shelves has emerged so far, but it seems that they might not be made official before the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month as the M7, at least this is what a recent article on UnwiredView reads.

The news site notes that M4 is expected to arrive on the market as a high-end smartphone, the same as M7, although it is currently rumored to sport only a 1.2GHz dual-core processor inside.

The Snapdragon SoC is complemented by 2GB of RAM, it seems, as well as by 16GB of internal memory and a 1700 mAh battery. The smartphone will run under Jelly Bean out of the box, it seems.

Furthermore, the new smartphone is rumored to sport a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, capable of delivering a 720p resolution.

On the back of M4, HTC is expected to pack a 13-megapixel photo snapper, with support for full HD video recording, complemented by a front camera for making video calls.

As for the HTC G2, it will be released with a 3.5-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering an HVGA resolution and hiding a 1GHz ARM processor inside.

The specifications list of the new device also includes 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, along with a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back.

Running under Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the new device is also said to feature a 1400 mAh battery. It should be aimed at the low end of the market.
