This week we’ve assisted at the debut of the first Facebook Phone, co-developed by the social network giant and HTC, dubbed HTC First. Well, now we will be talking about another HTC model that made the headlines over the past couple of months, but which was forgotten after the debut of HTC One.
We are talking about HTC M4, which was supposed to be announced synchronized with HTC One and another HTC G2 model, being the company’s trio for the first half of 2013.
Last year, the Taiwan-based company launched three new models for each market segment HTC One X (high-end), HTC One S (mid-range), and HTC One V (low-end), and HTC seems to be the kind of company to have an approach like this.
Anyway, we don’t know too much about HTC M4, but today we’ve learned from an Asian source that the new smartphone might be some sort of HTC First without Facebook Home, but packing an Ultrapixel camera.
It seems that the HTC M4 will borrow the design lines from the freshly launched HTC First and reports are indicating that is powered by a Snapdragon 400 chipset with dual-core 1.2 GHz Krait CPU, while boasting a 4.3-inch display with 720p resolution and an Ultrapixel camera. The list of technical specs also includes GPS/Glonass, 16 GB of internal storage, 1 GB of RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and HTC Sense 5.
It would be odd to see HTC First and HTC M4 coexist on the market, as they might risk cannibalizing each other’s sales. Do you think this will actually happen?
