35 HTC codenames leak, let the speculation begin!
Oh, my, not a good day for HTC! A list of 35 smartphone codenames has leaked, revealing some of the plans of the Taiwanese manufacturer for the year. Well, actually, not that much information can be extracted from this list, seeing that it's just a bunch of unfamiliar names, but still there are some important things to note here.

Probably most important is the fact that we see the M7 here - the rumored flagship of the manufacturer for 2013. By the looks of it, there will be many variants of this handset, which indicates that there may be different storage spaces, carrier versions and so on.

Some of the names found on the list are ones of already launched or cancelled phones. For example, the Deluxe is the recently-announced Butterfly. On the other hand, the HTC Primominiu is rumored to be a successor to the HTC One V. Many of the models on the list, however, are completely unfamiliar, so it's safe to say that HTC plans quite a lot of surprises for us in 2013.

Do you have any ideas what some of these models may be? Check out the full list below!

I personally love HTC phones and have owned several for Verizon. I opted for the Galaxy S3 in December over the DNA because of the limited memory and no options for memory expansion and the sealed battery. HTC's problems are not phone quality. They have a tendency to shoot themselves in the foot. They will put out a great phone, but invariably I will say "It is a great phone, EXCEPT for...." Another issue: their products are fragmented (the DNA sold on verizon only. The J butterfly, which has an SD slot and which I would have purchased, sold in Japan only). Moreover, they deal in too many exclusives. Exclusive to AT&T. Exclusive to Verizon. It just has not worked for them. In contrast, samsung's Galaxy S3 is far less fragmented. And Apple has one phone.

For me It's sense and average battery life...sense is stalled now...no improvements...whereas...samsung is constantly improving upon TW...I really like multi-window support...It's really useful on devices like Note2. May be onexl will be my first and last HTC device.

They don't really have a unified flagship line. If they sold the same single phone on all the carriers and advertised it like samsung and apple, they'd probably have more success.

It looks like they're going to sell the M7 on quite a few carriers, given there are 8 versions of it listed.

It did sound like it was going to be released worldwide.

Its because every single one of their last phones since the got on to android have been exclusive to single carriers. Thats why theyre not selling. Phones on some carriers are worse that phones on others, and also because they generally have small batreries. If they dont do what samsung did with the s3 then they wont be getting anywhere

So much for the "less models strategy" of the One Series.....

Just thinking the same thing. I wonder if any of these will have a battery with 2020+ worth of juice??

I see Quattro near the bottom, wasn't that the HTC tablet that was leaked way back when?

Perhaps HTC is trying to get back into tablets?

i think for different varieties for different carriers :) therefore, it would be, for me alone, indeed, the flagship model of HTC for this year :D

They flooding the market with too many phone with the same look. Sorry HTC but both of you and LG is going down this year. Nexus 4 will be a little bit of help but not to sustain the whole LG.

I doubt HTC will go down this year, HTC Butterfly has been selling like crazy. So far it's sold out at all retailers in Taiwan. HTC stock also went back up.

I like the names Apollo, Knight, Pulse and Quattro... A pitch black Knight sounds good...

Don't know that I care to speculate on what any one name means, but hoping one is the Titan/Titan II replacement (formerly Zenith). Also with the J added to some, hoping a WP8 handset is destined for Japan, as we are yet to receive any Windows Phone 8 here.

EVITA is the codename for HTC One X AT&T, don't know what's the UTL suffix is for though.

HTC has come a long way from phones like the Hero and the G1. Their phones are well-designed and powerful, but it seems that it's more sizzle than steak, as the hype does die down quickly for most of their phones. They have done well this past year: the One X, Droid DNA, EVO 4G LTE, 8X...those were pretty impressive phones. Personally I'd like to see HTC try again with a tablet. Sure, the Flyer needed a lot of work, but it wasn't too bad for a first try...well, then they tried with the Jetstream, and that didn't work too well either. Well, third time's the charm. :p

I don't know why I'm excited, I'm not in the market for a new phone until 2014/15
