HTC M7 housing leaks, aluminum front plate confirmed
HTC appears to be having a hard time keeping its upcoming Android flagship under cover. The HTC M7, as it is currently being referred to, has been leaked a number of times already, along with its hardware specs and spy shots of an alleged working unit. And now, some of the device's components have been revealed online, which gives us further details about the handset's design and construction.
What you can see in the images below are the front and back plates of the HTC M7, or at least that's what their source claims them to be. At a glance, these look like components made for the HTC DROID DNA or the HTC Butterfly, but several alterations hint that the parts are for another handset. For starters, the camera flash is on the other side, and the front-facing camera has been moved as well. There is also a tiny hole on the back, presumably for a noise-cancelling microphone.
The panel itself – partially made out of aluminum alloy, is said to be 7 centimeters wide and 13.7 centimeters tall, while its screen section should be big enough to accommodate a 4.7-inch screen. Interestingly, HTC has decided to outfit the M7 with a dedicated camera shutter button, so let's hope that we'll see some improvements in the camera department as well.
And that's the upcoming HTC M7 for you! We sure hope to hear more about the smartphone soon, preferably from an official source. Rumor has it that the smartphone will be made official on February 19, right ahead of MWC, and some U.S. carriers have already expressed interest in adding it to their rosters.
Thanks for sending this in!
