Boom! Get out the way silly renders, the (possibly) real HTC M7 is in town thanks to the team over at Android Police. The actual device is certainly the second render we saw leaked and not the first, which is a winner in our books. The new cartoon-ish, streamlined UI appears to be real which leads us to believe HTC might be headed in a new design direction with Sense 5 — we’re still not sure how we feel about that. You can also see the capacitive buttons have a new arrangement. What was once back, home, recent apps, is now, back, recent apps, home.
Included in the leak were 3 screen shots of the UI as it stands currently in production. The home screen is filled with placeholder widgets that could either be that exact layout (like TouchWiz), or they’re just filling up all the squares that the widget would take up (1×3, 2×3, 4×1, etc). The Android version number and Sense version numbers have been hidden, however, we do know that it’s going to launch with Android 4.2 on board.
Anyone else more excited about this device? Bring on MWC we say.
