With the HTC ‘M7′ or One as it is now known about to hit Australian stores on Tuesday, the rumours of the slightly lower end HTC ‘M4‘ continue to circulate. Digitimes is reporting that a supplier named Catcher Technology will be supplying a metal-alloy chasis for the M4 and begin shipping out 700,000 units in June. Understandably, Catcher Technology declined to comment on clients and orders.
The rumours surrounding a new HTC phone codenamed ‘M4′ have been with us for a while, the phone is said to come with a 4.3″ 720P screen, running a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8930) CPU with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board Storage. A possible reason for a delay between the release of the HTC One and the announcement of the ‘M4′ is the rumoured inclusion of an UltraPixel Rear Camera in the ‘M4′ which has been the cause of delays for the HTC flagship.
