HTC is no stranger to pushing the technical boundaries early in the product cycle, they were one of the first to implement the 720p display (in the Rezound), and they were one the first to implement a 1080p display in the 5-inch Butterfly. Now it looks like they might be squeezing that 1080p display down to 4.7-inches.

Unwired View — specifically the trusted @evleaks — is reporting that HTC are working on a successor to the HTC One X which is currently codenamed “M7”. It will apparently have a 4.7-inch 1080p display (that’s 469ppi!) that will be powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 CPU which pulls the juice from a 2300mAh — a welcome improvement over the 2030mAh battery in the Butterfly.

HTC is also expected to launch Sense 5 alongside the M7 which will hopefully be atop of Android 4.2.1. All the other impressive specs can be seen above so there’s not much else to say about them, other than they look awesome on paper. The inclusion of 802.11ac is worth noting, as it’s the latest Wi-Fi standard that is 3x faster than 802.11n.

If you’re an audio fanatic, then you’ll be happy to know that the M7 is expected to have a Beats-designed amplifier, and improvements to sound quality during calls dubbed “Clear Words”. All of the audio will be pumped out of stereo speakers.

There’s no launch date noted, however, with CES and Mobile World Congress just around the corner, we can expect to see HTC launching a range of products there.

    hopefully it doesn’t have WIFI issues like HTC One X. I will never buy HTC product again..Samsung S III beats One X hands down

    Why only 2G of Memory? Why not put at least double that because at the point of sale, consumers can’t afford to rush out and upgrade their devices. If you do this and you keep the sale price at a reasonable figure, it will attract the savvy buyers!


    you honestly think you need more than 2gb?

    1gb might be a bit of a bottleneck these days but 2 will be plenty for a long time.


    goddammit this is seriously making me reconsider upgrading to the S3 now.

    Anyone have a vague idea as to when this would be released? Can someone say February please?

    32GB makes me happy. It means you can throw a few movies or a TV series on the phone for when you go on a trip. And the cost of 32GB is tiny compared to a $600 phone.

    Spec looks delicious. With HTC’s typical craft and attention to detail, I’m sure it’s going to be very nice flagship phone for 2013.

    Pity HTC will ruin it with that horrible distasteful Sense. If only they went back to producing a Nexus device again…

    It isn’t hard to put stock on it.


    Hey, now just because you dont like Sense doesn’t mean other dont like it either.

    I for one think that Sense is great. Do you know why. Because it differentiates itself with Samsung, LG etc.If every single mobile phone company had the same OS then what is the point in getting one over the other.

    Specs aren’t the only thing
