HTC M7 coming to Verizon, Sprint and AT&T?
This tweet says T-Mobile is not getting the HTC M7

This tweet says T-Mobile is not getting the HTC M7

The HTC M7 is the next flagship model coming from the Taiwan based manufacturer and just the other day we finally got to see what the fuss is all about. Thanks to the FHD resolution on a somewhat smaller 4.7 inch display, the pixel density hits an amazing 468ppi. To put that in perspective, the Retina display on the Apple iPhone 5 weighs in at 326ppi. A quad-core processor will be under the hood, 2GB of RAM is on board and the back and front cameras weigh in at 13MP and 2MP respectively.

So where will the HTC M7 end up in the U.S.? According to serial leakers evleaks, this high-end flagship model will be available at Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. A tweet sent from the source calls the nation's fourth largest carrier the only one of the nation's four major wireless operators not to have concrete proof that it will offer the unit. If  this holds out, T-Mobile  customers will miss out on be able to purchase the first handset to feature HTC Sense 5.0, which offers an easier to use UI, a re-designed lock screen and HTC apps.

We should see this beast make an appearance at MWC next month in Barcelona with a launch not too much longer afterward.

Notice the size of the battery was left out? *Sigh*

battery is not as crucial as AVAILABILITY!

why? because "alot" are already "content" with what they have been offering.....can they improve in that area? of course!

but once again it is far from "as" important as it is to make your product AVAILABLE to everyone.

Well, I do care about the battery size, then the availability matters. If that's not what I want, don't even bother.

HTC has the correct size screen for this one. Phones have been getting too big. Let's hope they don't mess this up with non-removable battery.

If this device indeed comes with high end materials like aluminum casing, I wouldn't expect less from HTC, non removable battery is likely, I can't recall a premium made device with removable battery.

HTC is always buddy buddy with Sprint and Verizon. TMO got the bottom of the barrel in 2012, the One S, which was actually a good phone. Just goes to show how much better the One X, EVO LTE and DNA were.

HTC's efforts always goes in vain, because of their non-removable battery,lack of external stoarge,low battery backup and last but not the least poor after sale service.

that only applies to certain phones though. the new evo, the butterfly, and i'm pretty sure the sv and vx, all have external storag eso they're already learning their lesson. as for the removable battery, that would mean disregarding the current design(which i'm personally a fan of) and i dont think they are willing to do that. especially since sony is the only company that has better looking phones imo

I wish it would be released for T-Mobile cause the only Phones they got worth buying are made by Samsung and I've been a Fan of HTC for about 11, 13 years now and I'd really like to be able to get this phone for T-Mobile. Cause if it doesn't come out for T-Mobile I might end up unlocking for T-Mobile just cause I want it that badly.

The problem with HTC is they always forget one thing. It's always a near hit. But there's always one thing. Example. Droid DNA. Everything was great. EXCEPT internal storage expansion. Make this one perfect. Removable battery. Expandable storage. Great display. Powerful processor. The DNAs body. The Titan 2s camera. Latest version of Android. And simultaneous carrier launch. And then HIT!

i think the lack of external storage might have been verizon, since the interational version actually does have a micro sd slot

The international version does support microSD cards. But only upto a capacity of 32 GB. So total memory becomes 16 GB internal + 32 GB microSD = 48 GB. Which, IMO is absolutely ridiculous. Even the older One X+ has a total of 64 GB memory.

17. chrisbo5 (Posts: 31; Member since: 26 Jan 2012)

they are saying that they might be offering a flagship for more than one carrier. unlike the one x, one s, dna being carrier exclusives

18. parkwaydr (Posts: 572; Member since: 07 Sep 2011)

This is the right direction HTC. Please no more carrier exclusives

Well that's a given. That's too much of a staple for sprint. But I could see a universal phone. Just renamed for sprint like the one x.

It's very unlikely that they won't have it on T-Mobile. Even if they don't get it on T-Mobile, it's still a good effort from HTC. Now, will it be easier to get s-off on this device?

I am looking forward for this phone! I am just starting to get tired of my iPhone 4s, Android is coming out strong and whatever update there is on the next gen iPhone it won't come near as close as this monstrous HTC M7. The only thing from Apple that I will get is an iPad since there's more tablet support on it's platform.
