HTC might launch M4 and G2 more affordable phones after the M7

HTC might launch M4 and G2 more affordable phones after the M7
The HTC M7 is expected to make a splash with an official debut on February 18th, but HTC has got two more eggs in its basket - the HTC M4 and HTC G2. The two more affordable devices might not get an official unveiling on February 18th, but they will likely be part of HTC’s Spring lineup, according to EVLeaks.

Before we give you the details on the upcoming HTC M4 and HTC G2, though, we’d have to mention that the same source also confirms that the flagship M7 is expected to arrive on shelves shortly after its official announcement.

Now, the M4 and G2 fill the mid and low-end segments. We’re particularly enamored with the HTC M4, a 4.3-inch 720p device with a dual-core Snapdragon and 2 gigs of RAM, a potent combination and something to please those wishing for a slightly smaller device.

Here are the rumored specs for the HTC M4:
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • Android 4.2 Jellybean with HTC Sense 5.0
  • 4.3-inch, 720p display
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 1-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 4G LTE support

The HTC G2 on the other hand will be the low-end offering that will impress with price and not features. Here is what the G2 should look like:
  • 1GHz processor
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 3.5-inch HVGA display
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage
  • 5-megapixel rear camera

It’s all still a rumor, so let’s stay tuned for official news on this at MWC.

I know I had a 3.5in screen and I thought it was pretty big until I compared it with a 4in and I was woah!

Eh...next. I've grown bored of anything HTC. Pathetic battery life, same old designs, & mediocre layout. Samsung has perfected TouchWiz to a point where if I am going to go Android, most likely would stick with Samsung.

Same old design. So my EVO LTE look like the one x which look like the one s. And the 8X look like those as well.

What the heck is the point of wasting their money with launching a device like G2?? One S or even HTC Amaze is a lot better than that piece of crap.

The Xiaomi phone 2 is more powerful than the M4 unless that dual core is a true A15.

Reasonable specs for the mid range device, besides, 720p is a more than decent resolution for a screen this size but the limited storage without an SD Card may be off putting to some. On the bright side, at least it has got the latest version of Android and not 4.1. The G2, ICS?? HTC weren't lying when they said their phones with 512 MB of RAM wouldn't be making the cut past ICS.

Can't wait to see the HTC M4. Looks like my HTC Droid Incredible 4G is getting replaced.

m4 sounds good for me... 4.3 inch is what i like ohh.... 1700 mAh and 720p? well.. maybe its not that good... why HTC put poor battery all the time?!

HTC appears to be gearing for yet another year of losses with the "rumoured" specs here, they won't stand a against the oems from China. How I wish they'd act "brilliantly" with this year's products. Max up the device batteries for goodness sake! & make available the option of SD card slot. Otherwise, HTC won't be getting my dime this year.

The specs aren't too bad considering these are midrange and entry level offerings. Unless you're expecting high end superphone specs from a mid range phone in which case, wrong phones to look for. The only disappointments are the usual suspects: battery and SD card (or lack thereof). The ram on the G2 is a little disappointing too.

I wouldn't call the m4 'mid-range'. I mean its specs are better than that of the iphone 5 lol.

M4 sounds decent...except for the battery. But G2 should atleast have 1GB RAM...too bad.

Don't get too disappointed with the battery, Sense 5.0 might have some battery improvements within it. Plus, HTC devices usually have pretty outstanding standby time, and that kind of makes up for the sub par on screen time.

Maybe, as i see that sense 5 has reduced visual appeal, replaced by a subtle looking UI. This might actually help, yes.

Their battery improvements is to auto end background thread making apps the depend on it incompatible. When the problem is feedback to them HTC claim that its sense's feature.

4G and 1700mAh battery - there's always something HTC blows.

Yeah, I don't know what's up with HTC and battery capacity. It's pretty important that the phone actually be on if your going to use it and all. I would love to see them go all out with a huge battery soon.

I think that might be more than enough on these phones... The dual core HTC Sensation only had 1500mah. With the current CPU chip technology, 1700mah should be good enough for the M4. The only part I think is stupid is the internal memory. They should up it to at least 32GB.

I'm disappointing the G2 specs, hope the device super cheap otherwise no one buy it
