It looks like HTC is preparing some surprises for early 2013, and reports are indicating that a new flagship is among them, unofficially dubbed HTC M7. The HTC M7 has made the headlines of the tech blogs over the past few weeks, which will supposedly be the successor of the popular HTC One X. Since the HTC M7 will the flagship of the company’s smartphone line-up, it will pack top-of-the line technical specifications. Let’s have a look.
Rumor has it that the Taiwan-based company will unveil the HTC M7 at Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona in February 2013, being the first full HD smartphone with a display smaller than 5 inches, packing a 4.7-inch touch panel. Therefore, it will have a pixel density of 468 ppi, 40% higher than the one of iPhone 5.
HTC M7 will also boast the same optical lamination technology used for the iPhone 5, as its new display will be an “SoLux” unit, which is a major upgrade from SLCD 2, especially when it comes comes to viewing angles, but also colors clarity and outdoor visibility.
HTC M7 will reportedly pack the next generation of Qualcome quad-core chipsets, based on A15 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz, together with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The terminal will be LTE friendly, it will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with the new HTC Sense 5.0 on top of it.
Just like its forerunner, HTC M7 will bring the photo/video capture and playback to a new level, boasting new technologies. Therefore, we head that the flagship smartphone will arrive with a CCD camera with 13 megapixels sensor and f/2.0+ lens. The new camera sensor, called Cinesensor promises an improvement in quality, as well when it comes to super slow motion capture and HDR video.
This time, the HTC smartphone will bring a speaker created by Beats Audio and a new feature that will enhance in-call quality, called Clear Words. The HTC M7 is no doubt an interesting device, so I am eager to see it in flesh at MWC 2013.
