Real image of the HTC M7 appears?

0. phoneArena 20 Jan 2013, 12:12 posted on

A few days ago, @evleaks revealed an image of a phone that was taken straight from a SIM card installation tutorial found on the firmware for the HTC M7, so naturally it was thought that perhaps this image was that of HTC's next flagship handset; as it turned out, the phone pictured was not the HTC M7 but now we have a picture that appears to be that of the HTC M7...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

I always wanted my phone to look somewhat ordinary but with the power and capacity of an extraordinary phone. I am glad to find a phone like this and I could not have asked anything more, this ought to keep my mouth shut for another two years from blabbering about a new phone. Well done HTC, keep up the good work!!!

But there is quite a possibility that they might change the design in order to target a huge crowd to cover their loss so i am still not satisfied until the phone is on for sale and i do hope it meets all the requirements (wireless charging, great battery and memory capacity, synaptics touch technology, wifi direct with FILE TRANSFER and 13mp always on HDR camera)for this year's flagship other than the NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor which we already know

Another site has reported that the back is just a mock up added because the actual back of the M7 wasn't known

This is more plausible. The other one like someone had mentioned looked like the BB10 handset.

Looks very 8x to me. If this is real its a bad design choice. There is no problem whatsoever building phones for both windows and android, but at least differentiate the phone designs themselves. Laziness won't help you bounce back HTC.

Looks like a 8x and one x... It's their design style these days, love it or hate it.. I personally don't love it or hate it.. It's just okay. One thing I'm certain about is the build quality

You people are dumb as s**t. The Xperia Z has a bigger bezel and that's the best yall can bitch about?

Well if you're going to bi*ch about using correct English, it's "Y'all" not "Yall."

I have this image, and Xperia Z's image open in another window, side by side. I am not seeing what you saw to make such comment.

No, I can add plenty, camera module is too far down the phone, held normally looks like your hand might cover it, god knows why they've put the home button on the right and multi-task in the middle, bezel at the top is far too high and looks cramped, it doesn't differentiate from the HTC's we saw in 2012 - nothing new aesthetically, it just looks bland..

Xperia Z design > HTC M7 design

I am still waiting to see if Apple will start making android phones so that I can get my Apple Nexus with android v5.

Why did they move the home button to the right and put the multi tasking in the middle?

This is a hoax! Either way HTC sense sucks balls, used a friends One X for a week and really hated it and I owned a HD2 back in the day, never liked it back then either!

I was talking about the manufacturer skin Sense in all HTC phones, I made it pretty clear but oh well

They did this because if some questions HTC about this leak, they can say "It's not our phone. Look, the Home button is on the right.".

Xperia Z is a beauty. That one is a déjà vu.

Both of those have been proven fake by a very trustworthy source that claims he has seen the device.
