HTC M7 arriving March 8 in France for €650 with the exact same name


The HTC M7 has been thoroughly leaked already numerous times with specs and even images of the chassis, but now comes a release date and price confirmation, albeit in Europe.

A French retailer has listed the M7 (yep, that seems to be sticking as an official name) as coming March 8 to its shelves, and it is slated to cost €649.99 (~$879) in the land of fine dining and union riots.

That's about the same as any flagship smartphone when it launches in Europe, so HTC is apparently not going to give those Ultrapixels away to claw back market share. The confirmed specs in the listing are once again:

  • 4.7 inch Full HD Display(1920*1080 resolution)
  • 1.7Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon Quad Core Processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB Internal Storage(with microSD Support)
  • 13Mpx Camera
  • HTC 5.0
  • 4G,NFC Supported
  • Double HP Techno Beats Audio
  • 2300mAh Battery
  • Android Jelly Bean

whyyyyy some idiots r talking about gslaxy s4. HTC MAKES BETTER PHONES than samsung. this is fact though that sales r better on sammy's side because of marketing plans and better marketing skills. but hell yes HTC IS RISING and look at this phones design. it again has proved that there is no way any other company can get even near to such beautiful and high performance handsets like htc.htc is just the best cell maker in terms of everything. PPL WHO critisize SENSE r idiots. its the most refined software ever built. and its now more refined with SENSE 5.0. all i wanna say is GOOD LUCK HTC . UR THE BEST. and we r with u and u ll RISE ABOVE ALL.

HTC is underrated. But, the Samsung did well when it came to deciding what customer want. A larger more efficient and larger battery and microSD slot are a big plus for the S3. When two thing are so evenly match losing a major department like expandable memory or battery life can be dire. Making many people lean toward the S3 although both the phones stack up pretty evenly. Mix that with a great marketing effort from Samsung and there you have it Samsung wins in the sales department. People see sales numbers and sometimes think that they mean that there is something wrong with the One X but really there are only a few factor that have caused such a vast contrast in sales numbers. HTC makes wonderful phones and the One X has quite a few great advantages over the S3 especially in terms of aesthetics (Sense is beautiful and the One X looks great) but, in the end the S3 won in the sales department and also in the fan department.

wait for the M7 so that Butterfly prices go down... then buy Butterfly

I also wanted to do that too but I might never end up getting a new phone if I do that, if you wait for the price of butterfly to come down an m7+ might appear and will make you say you want to wait again

18. thelegend6657 unregistered

I agree with mittal , as a man that just finished high school haven't got into college yet doing part time jobs to support myself , that could be the best decision

Are you sure why not just get the one x? just like me I'm still a student.btw did you read my comment for you on the previous article?about the difference of butterfly and one x+? Sorry pa if our conversation is off topic

23. thelegend6657 unregistered

I saw , maybe the one x+ . One x is a little slow in the browser The one x is good too . I don't know , the butterfly and the one x+ just feel more special

I think jb update will resolve the laggy browser, so far it's no big deal to me, I don't mind it at all. If you want to wait for the price of butterfly to depreciate, I expect it to be only going down by $50-$70 at the time the m7 comes out

Very frankly, u really need to see what specs actually matter to you and not just follow the spec race Check the qHDs and the 720p screens on the market and compare with the full HDs. See if u even need full HD and accordingly mark that spec Chek if u need all that procesing power of a quad core, or if a Krait dual core is fine and accordingly mark that spec Chek your need for a good camera phone, and accordingly hunt for a good one and so on... I did the same and realised i can save good money by not spending on the One X and bought a One S (me very happy :) ) But yes if your phone needs to keep u in line for the 'social status' purpose then examine all the super high ends

29. thelegend6657 unregistered

Well mittal , there is more rom for the one x compared to the one s although the one s feels a lot better . I'm fine with the one s screen , problem is Asian one s have snapdragon s3 instead of the European s4 . Also , what you pay is what you get , by paying slightly more for the one x , you get a better screen , CPU and more storage

See thats what i mean... since u are clear with your preferences u will make a better and practical decision I dont think i will be rooting my device so custom roms wont effect me. Plus i get better battery life with my S than what is reported for X. S is more convenient to handle. And yes i also had that issue with the damned Scorpion processor issue. So i had mine imported from the U.S.A. with a Krait one :D

34. thelegend6657 unregistered

Cool ! But I think its wise to root your phone after one year . Sure , rooting voids your warranty , but your warranty expired anyway ?

7. wendygarett unregistered

Of course, HTC love to make fake phone to cheat customers :p

9. thelegend6657 unregistered

What's wrong Wendy ? Your one x failed on you ?

10. wendygarett unregistered

Nope, but it feels so plasticky and fake to me :)

11. thelegend6657 unregistered

Wtf ? The polycarbonate feels good on the one x And what's up with making fake phone and cheating customers You do realise that the HTC phone you bought can make phone calls right ?
