HTC M7 Android Flagship Rumored For Early 2013


HTC just came out with a pretty high-end Android in the form of the Droid DNA (and its other regional variants), but is something even better already in the works? That’s what we’re hearing, and reports say that a handset known by the codename “M7” could be landing in March with some even more impressive specs.

We saw that name pop up in a report by an analyst, citing excitement over the M7 as cause for market optimism towards HTC. Since that name didn’t ring any bells, we started digging around a little deeper.

That led to some rumors from late last week on Chinese sites that mention the M7 as being one of at least two HTC flagship models currently being developed, and again mentioning a Q1 release window. Those rumors also associate the M7 with a five-inch 1080p display and Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core SoC, just like the Droid DNA, but moving up to a thirteen-megapixel main camera. We can’t imagine that just adding a higher-res camera would make the M7 worthy of all this buzz, so we’re hoping HTC has been working on some additional improvements over the DNA.
