Is this an image of the HTC M7?
The HTC M7 is rumored to be the next flagship Android model from the Taiwan based manufacturer. A leaked image from the device's own firmware gives us what would seem to be a full look at the phone. According to @evleaks. this rendering comes from a SIM card installation tutorial found on an early version of the HTC M7's firmware. If this image is legit, it would appear that the display runs from edge-to-edge with possibly the thinnest bezel yet, and front-facing stereo speakers appear above and below the glass.

Before everyone gets too excited, those with inside knowledge of the device say that this image does not accurately represent what the HTC M7 looks like and that an earlier leak is closer to the phone's current design. And we could be looking at a number of different variants of the handset based on what different carriers demand. Right now, the speculation calls for a 4.7 inch FHD display with a quad-core 1.7GHz processor, with Sense 5.0 installed. We'd expect to see Android 4.2 powering the phone and hopefully a large battery keeps everything running for a long time. Pricing is believed to be in the $600 range with a launch not too far after the unit is introduced. And for those statesiders who blanched at the price, don't worry as we are certain to see at least one U.S. carrier pick up the model.

We are looking forward to seeing the HTC M7 on display at MWC next month in Barcelona. Until then we will most likely have to endure a number of rumors and much speculation. But when it comes to a new flagship phone, that's the nature of the beast.

I wish. That would mean the on-screen keys rumors would be true. I guess we'll see.

I doubt that this is it. Or otherwise the lawyers of Apple will be preparing their papers for another lawsuit. And this time, for the first time, I would even support them. Sony and Nokia show how you can make a smartphone that doesn't look like an iPhone. But this one doesn't...

Not really, no iButton...and this phone would dwarf the iphone, well, most phones do now.

Come on, the resemblance to iPhone is unmistakable! But maybe it's a fake. I hope, otherwise if this is the real deal, it only means that HTC is getting desperate.

It looks more like a Blackberry Z10 than anything... You realize this is the front of the device, not the back? I get how it looks similar to the back of the iPhone 5, with the two tone design and all, but overall it looks nothing similar to the iPhone other than its rectangular shape.

don't really know if that's real or not but there better be some hardware buttons. on-screen ones can always be added and are just a waste of space to me

so now we know what HTC and Apple were negotiating under the table. Looks like Apple has allowed HTC to rip off their design!
