AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile to receive HTC M7 at launch; Verizon's HTC M7 will be delayed?
The HTC M7 is expected to be the Taiwan-based handset manufacturer's flagship Android phone for 2013. In an era of handsets wearing similar 5 inch panels with FHD resolution and pixel density of 441ppi, the HTC M7 allegedly gets off the 5 inch train, but in doing so, comes up with a screen that might top the competition for clarity and sharpness. With a rumored smaller 4.7 inch screen, the FHD resolution on the HTC M7 would provide a pixel density of a whopping 468ppi. And just on case you are comparing the numbers to the Apple iPhone 5, that device has a Retina display of 326ppi.

It doesn't take much imagination to see that the HTC M7 just might grab plenty of attention thanks to that display, the same way that the HTC DROID DNA has become a popular model at Verizon. Meanwhile, a highly reliable source for HTC Source is telling the site that the HTC M7 will be offered by T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T on the U.S. launch day.  Are we leaving someone out? Let's see. T-Mobile. AT&T. Sprint. Ah yes, we left out Verizon. Actually, there is a reason for that.

According to the source, for reasons not revealed at this time, The HTC M7 is delayed for Verizon. Perhaps with the big ad campaign that Big Red has for the HTC DROID DNA, the carrier sees no reason to rush out a new flagship model. Just yesterday, we passed along the water cooler report which suggests that the HTC M7 will launch March 8th in both black and white, and most likely in Europe first. The gossip says that the U.S. carriers will release the phone a few weeks later. That is, with the exception of Verizon, if this speculation pans out.

HTC's press event is coming on February 19th and we should learn a lot more about the HTC M7 on that date, including the U.S. launch schedule.
