HTC’s 2013 flagship device is expected to be the HTC M7, a 4.7-inch device with an impressive Super LCD3 1080p display, and finally we have a leaked render of what the device is actually going to look like. Unwired View are reporting that the render doesn’t have any logos or branding on it, so the final version make see minor tweaks to add them in.
Other than that, the device is clearly all display right up to the edges which — in theory — would make it slightly smaller than the HTC Butterfly (143 x 70.5 x 9.1 mm) which has a 5-inch 1080p display. There are also no capacitive buttons under the display — not to say they won’t be added later — which would mean that HTC are going the way of on-screen buttons.
A cool addition to the M7 could be the inclusion of an IR port on the top of the device that has learning capabilities so that you can use it as a universal remote. It sounds gimmicky, but it could be fairly interesting if it actually works properly. We’ll see.
Unwired View says that the device will launch a few weeks after Mobile World Congress in February with a RRP of around US$600.
