The HTC M7 is HTC's new flagship Android smartphone which we originally expected to be unveiled at CES 2013 in January. However, that's been and passed and we've since reported that the HTC M7 will be unveiled on February 19th.
Now we've learnt that the HTC M7 could launch as the HTC One which goes against all previous rumours we've heard. However, it does make sense because HTC's previous flagship device was known as the HTC One X.
The move would make logical sense because it rightfully suggests to consumers that the new HTC One is at the top of HTC's smartphone range. We presume that the M7 name was only an internal code-name for HTC's smartphone and from this point on we'll refer to HTC's M7 as the HTC One !
What do we know about the HTC One (or HTC M7) ?
The HTC One is rumoured to have a 4.7 inch running at a 1080p resolution (1920 * 1080 pixels) giving it a PPI of 468 which puts the Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 firmly in the shade. While, the smartphone will be powered by Snapdragon 1.7 Ghz processor and has 2GB of RAM making it a real powerhouse.
HTC's One is rumoured to come with 32GB of on-board memory, while it'll have a 13 mega-pixel camera and support for Beats Audio technology. As you'd expect it comes with support for 4G , as well as NFC, WiFi and Bluetooth.
The HTC One will be competing against Sony's Xperia Z, Samsung's Galaxy S4 and LG's Optimus G Pro. All of the devices look set to have very similar specifications and right now it's pretty hard to choose between them !
