Analyst: Component shortage threatens launch of HTC M7
Apple iPhone 5 has a 326ppi and the Samsung GALAXY S III has a 306ppi pixel density. The camera will be marketed as using Ultrapixels which is HTC's term for a process of using three 4.3MP layers in one camera sensor to produce sharper pictures with better color reproduction.
HTC is expected to introduce the phone during a February 19th press event. If the talk about a component shortage is true, we certainly would suggest that those interested in the device pre-order it as soon as possible. A launch could take place shortly after the phone is unveiled.

I'm actually looking forward to this phone although my upgrade won't be till summertime(AT&T) It's going to be between this and LG Optimus G Pro and any other Droids that might catch my eye between now and then.

Please, if you're on AT&T, THERE ARE NO DROIDS! Droid is a BRAND on Verizon. Verizon only. Please educate yourself before returning to the comments section.

Dude, get over it. Droid was one of the largest if not the largest marketing campaigns for Android phones, not to mention "droid" is a common shortening of the term "android." Humans associate with things like that and it probably has nothing to do with Desmund not doing his homework. Please redirect your angst. These are not the androids you're looking for.

Grande get over yourself many people refer to android as just droid no need to be a d-bag

I just realized something...Those buttons at the bottom of the screen look like onscreen buttons....from HTC???? GASP!!!!!

They're not. Those are the same capacitive buttons they've been using since they started putting out ICS phones.

I use to love when Phonearena would care about what news they reported. Oh wait it's always been like this. Who the hell cares about ANAlyst? HTC will still be the second Android maker behind Samsung.

It's a lie, there is no real shortage. They are just saying that so that way there's a larger demand and they can sell even more.
