It was at the beginning of the month we last heard about the HTC M7 project, a phone rumoured to be an upgraded version of the Droid DNA, but headed to the UK this time. Some more details on the phone have been leaked, and it has changed from being a version of the J Butterfly to being a potentially completely different device.
The source of the leak told Unwired View the M7 will have a 4.7-inch screen and not the 5-inch screen as originally thought, but it will retain the 1080p resolution, taking the pixel density to an astonishing 468ppi. The processor is still said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, but this time a quad-core beast with a 1.7GHz clock speed. It will also have 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage memory.
As with the first leak, a 13 megapixel camera is mentioned, complete with a larger, improved sensor and new features such as an HDR mode for video and a super -low motion setting. The operating system will be Android Jelly Bean and HTC Sense 5 will be placed over the top. Other features include Beats Audio, a 2 megapixel video call camera and 4G LTE connectivity.
Instead of being a Droid DNA for the UK, the M7 is now sounding like the sequel to the HTC One X+, and it’s going to get an international launch at some point next year. We’re still expecting to hear more during Mobile World Congress 2013, at which time the original One X will reach its first anniversary, making a replacement all the more possible.
