HTC M7 specs change a bit, still planned as HTC One X successor
Almost two weeks ago, we saw some rumors talking about the HTC M7, which is the company's heir to the throne. The M7 is expected to be HTC's next flagship device in Q1 of 2013, and take over the mantle from the HTC One X. The specs that we saw last time have changed a bit, but they are still adding up to one impressive smartphone.
Last time we heard about the M7, it was expected to have a 5" display, a Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, LTE, and a 13MP camera. This time around the details are getting a bit more specific. As we expected, the M7 is rumored to have a 1080p display, but it is now rumored to be 4.7", which would put the PPI at 468. The display is said to be a SoLux display and should offer a number of visual improvements over the previous generation Super LCD 2, such as better viewing angles, outdoor visibility, and color accuracy.
On the inside, the Qualcomm CPU is said to be 1.7GHz quad-core, with 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. The camera is still expected at 13MP, but this time at f/2.0 rather than the f/2.2 that was on the One X. The camera is also packing a so-called "Cinesensor", which claims to both increase image quality and improve features such as super slow-mo and video HDR. The front-facing camera is now rumored at 2MP.
As was expected, it the M7 should be wearing a fresh coat of HTC Sense 5.0, but no word on what enhancements have been made there. It is also rumored to be launched on all four major US carriers, which is something HTC hasn't done in quite a while. But, we should find out at this year's Mobile World Congress, which is slated for February.
