Real image of the HTC M7 appears?

Real image of the HTC M7 appears?
Last week, we showed you the picture of an image of a phone that had been lifted from a SIM card installation tutorial found on the firmware of the HTC M7. Naturally, the first thought was that the white phone with the edge-to-edge glass and stereo speakers on the front, was the Taiwan based manufacturer's next flagship model. But when we asked the musical question, "Is this an image of the HTC M7?," the correct answer was a resounding "No!".

So now a few days have passed and lo and behold, another image of the HTC M7 appears, looking nothing like that white poser we saw the other day. According to sources who have spent time with the real HTC M7, this is an absolutely correct representation of the phone. The latest rumored specs have the handset coming to market with a 4.7 inch screen and FHD resolution which works out to an incredible 468ppi pixel density. The quad-core processor inside the device is said to be the 1.7GHz  Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064, and the multitasker's best friend, 2GB of RAM, is also on board. Toss in 32GB of native storage and a 13MP camera is on back. Of course, Sense 5.0 is said to be included. We would be disappointed if anything less than Android 4.2 was shoehorned into the model.

We should see the HTC M7 in all of it's glory at next month's MWC in Barcelona. In the meantime, we have this new image so once again we ask, is this an image of the HTC M7? We expect a different response than what we heard last time.

could have done a lot better, I doubt this is the final design. At least it has hardware buttons

Obviously we can tell this would be some sort of rough draft design. HTC loves to put the capacitive buttons not the on screen buttons. Also the bezel is too thick, which I guarantee you it will be alot thinner when the accual device releases. We might not be seeing something druassicly different than this, other than those abnormalities this is a HTC.

I'm taking all of these leaked mock-ups with a grain of salt until I see an actual live picture of someone holding the phone. Both of these pictures have been said to not be the M7.

it looks good. i even like the launcher and the icons on this which is a first for me from an HTC device. i don't like the way the function keys are arranged though.

Looks pretty much like Windows Phone 8X. So I think it's the M7.

Oh now no one likes the design? I remember when the 8X was launched and news hit all the tech sites everyone was like "wow it looks nice, if it ran android but kept the design it would be awesome!" and other similar comments like that, but now that we've seen something like the Droid DNA we are all disappointed? Everyone is being hypocrites, we could go back to 8X postings and see those comments. I too am disappointed and I have been slowly been expecting this from HTC, 1st they don't put kickstands in any of their devices anymore which was a VERY competition differentiating feature that many of us loved 2. they stopped using metal on their flagship phones well heck everything but the One S last year 3. the damn OS update lag. This thing might feel outdated just by the capacitive buttons, I like to take full advantage of my screen size but they get out of the way when they are not needed ex: (landscape) youtube vids. I think if it did have a 5" screen and on-screen-buttons it would a resolve itself because it would feel like you are using a 4.7" screened phone then a 5" most of the time.

HTC, why oh why? You have a winner in the One series and the form factor of the HTC One X/X+! This is definitely a backward step and looks like your pain is likely to continue Mr. Chou.... HTC One X+ but with 2gb RAM, Sense 5.0, updated/new processor quad core processor, would have been a better bet than this effort

A 13MP camera on an HTC phone? Finally, a device that will actually be able to take full advantage of that camera resolution. In my experience, HTC phones have a history of taking great shots.
