HTC M7 might indeed be announced soon, invites going out for a February 19 event in NYC

HTC M7 might indeed be announced soon, invites going out for a February 19 event in NYC
As rumored, HTC might be announcing its new flagship, codenamed M7, before the MWC expo, as it just confirmed with us a February 19 event in New York City. The phone is said to land on Verizon, AT&T and Sprint, which would explain the US event.

Just as the HTC DROID DNA was the first Full HD handset announced, and still the only one you can buy, the HTC M7 is expected to sport the highest pixel density in its class, with a 4.7" Full HD screen, clocking in at the eye-watering 468ppi.

The other speculation is for a quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 13 MP camera on the back, which we wouldn't be surprised to turn out a Sony Exmor RS sensor, given how everyone but LG is rumored to use Sony's unit this year. 

The handset is also likely to be the first one carrying the streamlined, minimalistic new Sense 5.0 interface, and we'll be sure to let you know firsthand how everything looks and feels come February 19.

For me neither, after owning an LG Optimus 2X i would never get back to LG, the phone was nice but the software was awfull, not to mention LG took more than 1 year for them to release ICS for it, which i got tired of waiting for it and sold it.

sweet mother of God, it is not LGs fault that nvidia didn't release drivers for tegra 2 to work on ICS and above, so stop whining and blaming LG for that

Maybe they should have chose a different manufacturer that will give them the code... LG should have done some negotiations before accepting to use the rubbish tegra 2 cause it's tegra that benefit from others using its chip.

Really ? Why devices like the Xoom got updated so quickly ?

Motorola Atrix (Tegra 2), which was launched near O2X has not received ICS and will never get ICS.

LG has ICS for O2X and plans Jellybean.

Facts.

LG is on the rise now and I think they will overtake HTC position soon. M7 is nice but Optimus G pro and G2 will beat it. They had issues with software but they are improving fast unlike stagnant HTC.

Yes, but do not be fooled by the very O2X, LG is better now in both software and hardware.

I am very pleased with my O4X and Optimus G.

Think about it. :)

the Motorola X is another real competitor. it's being shaped up to be a real winner.

AT&T will release the HTC M7 before the Sony Xperia Z?

Successor of the HTC One X was HTC One X + :)

if it was a successor to one x, why using same name and spec, no should be a little bump to one x. the successor is about to be announced.

Specifications are not the same:

HTC One X: 32 GB of internal storage.
HTC One X+: 64 GB of internal storage.

HTC One X: Secondary camera 1.3 MP.
HTC One X+: Secondary camera 1.6 MP.

HTC One X: 1.5 GHz CPU.
HTC One X+: 1.7 GHz CPU.

HTC One X: 1800 mAh battery.
HTC One X+: 2100 mAh battery.

HTC One X: Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
HTC One X+: Jelly Bean out of the box.

HTC One X: Weight 130g.
HTC One X+: Weight 135g.

Also some parts are made by different manufacturers (for example main camera's sensor). And some other subtleties...

if you think that's enough to warrant it being a successor then phone companies don't have to do much to impress you. i'd call the One X+ a refresh or a revision, not a successor.

It has nothing to do with my impression, I konow that it is just updated HTC One X, but if you remember, even in some PhoneArena.com articles HTC One X+ was called as successor of HTC One X.

HTC is marketing the Butterfly as the successor to the one X here in Asia , maybe we Asian will not get m7 ?

I don't think so, htc m7 would also be announced in asian countries. In fact not all countries that htc is selling got the butterfly. In hongkong there is no butterfly, the flagship is one x+. BTW Htc butterfly successor was htc j

Specs are nice but what about battery size and internal memory? I think HTC is gonna launch this phone just like the DNA and have no expandable memory and a 2100 to 2500 man battery which means a big fail for them. I'm hoping HTC proves me wrong.

HAHA thumb me down all you want. The simple fact is that a product can have the best specs in the world but if you don't include basic features then your going to have a hard time selling product. If it has an sd card slot and a very large internal battery/removable battery were good. If not i stick with my Nexus.

In this day and age people are using there phones for more then calling/texting ie Facebook, Youtube, streaming musc or watching movies. To top it off the carriers are pushing the benefit of data use and how you can do things i just mentioned. The more and more media we consume leads to more and more data used which in turn kills your battery. So if you have all your media on a card you save on date which means you save money.

Its Verizon fault the DNA dont have SD slot .
The Japanese version J butterfly and the global unlocked version butterfly come with SD slot !

+1, that had nothing to do with HTC. every other version has sd card slot.

I never said it was HTC's fault the the DNA didn't have an SD slot and even if Verizon requested the phone be built that way HTC could have said NO. Also keep in mind ibwas saying that the M7 may end up being similar in that it may not have a large battery or an SD slot. That's why my statement is pure speculation as no one has been able to confirm if it has a larger battery/SD card slot. For all I know they could release it with a large battery and different memory sizes and or removable memory.

The best scenario is all the above mentioned specs plus 16 GB internal memory with SD card slot and a 2500 to 3000 mha battery.That would give the consumer more choices and hopefully in turn people buy more HTC phones.

Nobody should give Apple money by buying this phone. Especially when you know Sony, LG, and Samsung will release phones that are at least on par with this.
