A tweet send by @LlabTooFeR, someone characterized as having had reliable information about HTC in the past, is speculating that the sequel to the HTC DROID DNA
will soon be upon us as the...HTC M7
. The tweet listed all of the specs of what apparently is codenamed DLXPLUS
. The rest of the numbers should sound familiar including the 4.7 inch FHD screen. This has got to the be the HTC M7, because when was the last time you saw a true sequel launch with a smaller sized screen than the first-gen model? The pixel
density works out to 468ppi. Hey, where did we see that figure before? That's right, it was on a story about the HTC M7
. The specs match up perfectly.
This tweet suggests that the HTC DROID DNA sequel is the HTC M7
Other specs include the quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 APQ8064 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of native storage that can be expanded using a microSD card, a 13MP rear-facing camera
(which does add up to the 4.3MP X 3 Ultrapixel sensor we described earlier Monday) and the 2.1MP front-facing shooter. Jelly Bean will be pre-installed and Sense 5.0 will run on top.
The tweet hints that the device will be known as the HTC M7 for Sprint and the wording of it suggests that Verizon might keep the DROID DNA name. Seems a bit early for a sequel as the HTC DROID DNA launched on November 21st of last year, but stranger things have happened.
