Though HTC is the last major Android smartphone manufacturer to come with a high-end device this year – the Droid DNA – it might also be the first to unveil a flagship next year. The new beast, dubbed M7, has been leaked for the first time a couple of weeks ago and has now been detailed further by a very reliable source – EvLeaks.
If we are to take the rumors for granted, the M7 is going to push DNA’s envelope further, but not by that much. The 5-inch display will be replaced with a 4.7-incher (still Full HD), while the quad-core S4 Pro CPU will be kept, albeit at a higher clock speed (1.7 GHz).
Other important changes will see the camera’s sensor upgraded from 8 to 13 MP and the battery capacity from 2,020 to 2,300 mAh. The OS of choice will still be Jelly Bean, though this time it’ll probably be 4.2, seasoned with HTC’s Sense 5 UI.
The 2 GB of RAM will stay in place, while the built-in storage will be doubled to 32 GB. There’ll of course be LTE speeds, as well as Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, a 2 MP front-facing cam, and Beats audio enhancements. The M7 is rumored to be unveiled at the MWC 2013 in February and to start selling a month later across all major American carriers.
