HTC shows a heart on a chip, could it come alive in the M7?

HTC shows a heart on a chip, could it come alive in the M7?
HTC is expected to unveil its new flagship, the HTC M7, on February 19th with a huge event, but in anticipation it has now released an anatomical teaser with a big red heart implanted on a chip. How does this relate to the M7 and does it even relate to the upcoming device? It’s hard to tell if there is a connection, but if there is we guess it would be a hint about the ‘humane’ nature of the upcoming Android flagship.

We expect to see this whole heart and chip construction to come alive with the M7 on February 19th. As to the device itself, it is rumored to feature a 4.7-inch 1080p display, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and 2,300mAh battery. And a sprinkle of HTC magic, of course. That could be the use of ultrapixels in the camera, a technology that would bring sharper and overall better images. For the time being, though, we can only guess if that's indeed what HTC has in store.

lmao really, The Galaxy S3 was better than every phone till the Note 2, not to mention is outsold every other phone. So it is safe to say the Galaxy S4 will be the best phone of 2013 if Samsung keeps on doing what they have been.

Meanwhile HTC keeps putting out phones that have crummy battery life because their CEO believes that battery life doesn't matter as long as the phone is thing.

If it sells good , doesn't mean it's good .
The iPhone 4S outsold the galaxy s2 , does it mean that the iPhone is better ? Hell no
The one x is better than the gs3

The one X was a better phone than the s3 sorry to burst ur bubble I own a s3 and its a POS and now the gps don't never work.. ur logic just because it sold more is meaningless Lil Wayne sold tons of albums and he's still garbage that just means people are dumbasses!

Ohh really!!!!!!! even u dont know anything abt f*@!&#g M7 but already started thinking erotic abt it. Going with track record of htc and sammy. its so easy to anticipate which will be better....But hey u need little bit of sense to understand that.

What's wrong with you ?
I seen the leakes
Phonearena comfirmed the specs
I saw HTC CEO waving it in the air at their year end party on YouTube .
I am not a sheep , if the Xperia z or gs4 is a lot better i would pick that .
The gs4 is months away from launching
Sheep is for people that owns a current gen device and will upgrade to a next gen device by the same manufacturer without thinking or comparing it with other devices . For example i$heeps .
My current device is a galaxy s 2 .
I jump from Brand to brand is to get a different experience from my current handsets , just like car ownership . Fanboys like you won't understand
I would love to switch to a wp8 , but I will wait until instagram is available

So you guessed on your own that I am sammy fanboy. FYI I am using htc one x for for last one year and after comparing the performance with my friend's s3 and note2 continuously during last 5-6 month i have made an opinion.

I don't believe in leaks and peter chou.

Agree. Personally, I'm waiting for a device with the next-gen Qualcom top chip, 2000mah+ battery, SD card slot, >=8MP high quality sensor, water/shock resistance, and LTE. First one to manufacture that device gets my money (I'm coming from OneX+).

I hope that the Motorola's X-Phone to be just like that.

But will have to wait many months to the announcement, and many more for the launch... So frustrating...

Pure exaggeration. I hardly believe that the point of this marketing campagne is to convince you that the phone is actually a living organism. Besides, it's a marketing campagne in the first place. Some exaggeration is expected.

iPhone slogan's though the years:

iPhone 3G: "There's an app for that. That's the iPhone. Solving life's dilemma one app at a time."

iPhone 4: "This changes everything. Again."

I hope the battery is going to be bigger than 2300mAh, but either way as long as it lasts a lot longer than my GS3 I'll be content.

Didn't you see the gsmarena battery test? The DNA outlasts the s3 on jellybean with a smaller battery and a larger screen. The m7 has a smaller screen and a larger battery. Go figure.

I am almost ready to get a HTC butterfly but the battery life is kinda worrying .

Go for it already, do not worry much about the battery life, I bet the m7 would only improve by a small margin. I just got myself a one x btw

Good for you .
So is the one x + better than the butterfly ?
Cheaper , more storage , bigger battery .

one x+ is cheaper than the butterfly but only by a few margin, storage-one x+ has 64 gb while butterfly has 16gb but has a micro sd slot up to 32gb which you can expand. For battery, I'm not sure about that though. Judging from the leaks and rumor, I think the advantages of the butterfly over the m7 is that it is waterproof, has an led notification at the back, has a bigger 5"screen and for the advantages of the m7 over butterfly, slightly bigger battery, higher mp camera, slightly better processor and the list goes on.

I'd wait for the m7. My battery life is dull if I keep using 3g (on holiday atm, uploading photos/calling all day). But aside from that its good :) just 3g is a real sucker.

I also wanted to wait for the m7 but my old phone suddenly got broken and I don't think I can afford the m7 yet, one x is much cheaper

Get a second hand one x, or buy one from Kogan. Then sell it once you have enough money :)

Yes, battery life is indeed terrible, I would prefer a thicker and heavier phone rather than a thin and lightweight one that wouldn't last you a day

I would buy it in a heartbeat. But it HAS to have a micro sd for me to even consider it.

HTC phones are pretty poor, there is no way the One X was better than the GS3. That device was riddled with problems. Haha

The battery looks pretty nice. Hope it's legit. Wish it was 3300 mAH like the RAZR MAXX's just so no one could complain about it. I'm super exited though, I'm probably buying this as my next main phone.

42. Jonathan41 (Posts: 526; Member since: 22 Mar 2012)


I hope it's Li-ion instead of Li-poly like the One X was. I don't care how thin the phone is, I just want it to be on.

Li-po batteries ARE Li-Ion Polymer and they are the evolution of an ordiray Li-Ion. Better, capish?

I'm going off of this:
http://www.androidauthority.com/lithium-ion-vs-lithium-polymer-whats-the-difference-27608/
"Better" seems like a strong word when referring to the Li-Poly in this case.

I think this is a great graphic and great advert... it makes blood pump through your circuits (pun intended). I bet M7 is going to be one hell of a device. 2300 mAh battery should suffice for a workday od moderate usage with no problems. The way HTC optimizes their battery life is almost beyond belief, how much juice they squeeze from their small batteries. With the "latest" Android version and a skimmed down Sense 5 battery manegement should be even better. All they have to do now is to make it available world-wide and asap. March 8th and all the advertising this world manages and HTC should skyrocket with this phone.
