HTC M7 release date set for March 8, coming in black and white?
The HTC M7 is one of the most anticipated high-end Android devices to arrive in 2013 and while we already know the M7 will be announced on February 19th, rumors have narrowed down the actual release date to March 8th.

The HTC M7 is expected to become available on March 8th in both black and white. Take into account that this is only a rumor, but still one that makes a lot of sense for HTC as an early launch of the M7 will give it two or three months of leeway over the Samsung Galaxy S IV.

Earlier estimates mentioned HTC was trying to manufacture 4 to 5 million units of the M7 in Q1 2013.

As to the colors, we've only seen leaks of a black HTC M7, but the Taiwanese phone maker is expected to also bring a silvery white model.

Lastly, while a March 8th HTC M7 launch date sounds great, this might be the time when the device arrives to Europe, and it might take a while longer until it makes it to U.S. carriers because of longer testing periods.

I hope the lock screen of m7 will be similar to sense 4, I still prefer the weather animation and the "pull the ring" to unlock the phone

26. thelegend6657 unregistered

Exactly !

The ring unlock is very unique, I'd like that to stay too... but doesn't seem like that'll happen.

Yep Sony kinda used specs from Last year on the xperia Z it could have been successful if it was released on november 2012 IMO Those Phones powered by Snapdragon 800 Are definitly something to look up too. I still think my last year spec 4X HD does the job Very good phone! but I want jellybean :/

M7 is not gonna powered with snapdragon 800 , coz snapdragon says that they are going to start production of their new chips after Q2

I know Its powered by a Tegra 4. But the one thing I hate about htc is they dont have a flagship name they could have just called it htc one X 2 instead

Ur right omar 98 the HTC m7 is just a code name it might be or betta be the one series device like the HTC one x it was called the HTC endeavour while it was being rumored as the endeavour

I think the butterfly was also supposed to be named one but maybe htc ran out of ideas since there is already a one xl

41. thelegend6657 unregistered

No , HTC butterfly is strictly not a one series device

M7 can't be a threat for Z. the design and specs of Z is much much better than those of M7

Is this supposed to have a MicroSD slot?

But isn't this based on the current generation of Qualcomm chips, meaning this will only be the flagship until May or June, what with all the competition coming from A15 powerhouses.

blacakberry is looking like my exit from android land people.........and a big part of that reason is simply because the manufacturers are so caught up in the "bigger is better" movement (created by samsung...smh) that NO ONE is able to make a reasonable sized phone anymore..............and im talking HIGH END 4.3 inch phones with hd screens So since that seems to be the world that android is currently embedded in i will be moving on to the new blackberry 10 as soon as it is available and i can afford to get one......still have love for the android community but thanks to samsung I will no longer be with you guys........UNLESS someone like sony or HTC decides to change my mind with a high end normal sized phone........but until then blackberry is looking like daylight while stuck in a cave..... much love to everyone that was with me while on the android rollercoaster

Congratulation knight, you have finally break yourself beyond the android world... Bb10 has everything that android had, it just has not much customization tho... If you think customization is not a deal breaker, it definitely suits you Kinda envy tho :(

Good bye Xperia knight Hello BlackBerry knight

lol maybe .......just maybe :)

I personally love the BB10's software but the Z10 (specially its camera) failed to wow me. I don't like the limitations of WP8 (which is a good performer, but limitations are far too much for me to overlook) but I love the 920's hardware. Help.

Size is objective, and the majority of people are liking the bigger displays. I'd personally like to keep it at 5", then anything above is phablet. There is no "reasonable" size, there is no "normal" size, there is just category. 3.5"-5" = phone with a .3 inch extension to the rule if bezel is minimal 5.3"-6" = phablet with a .5 inch extension with minimal bezel 6.5+ = tablet But I do agree, if I were to switch away from Android, it would be with BB10. I absolutely love the interface of BB10, especially the notifications. There is a bit of a learning curve to BB10 without the existence of buttons except on the homescreen, but it shouldn't be too bad. Have a fun time in the BB Army, Xperia. I might join you, maybe as a secondary device.
