Taiwanese manufacturer HTC is speculated to unveil its upcoming flagship handset, M7, at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 (CES 2013) which was staged in Las Vegas. Reliable online source has stated that this successor to the HTC One X will feature state-of-the-art components and some industry firsts.
Leaked details about the HTC M7, a top-of-the-range smartphone that has come under its own spotlight over the last few months, state that the smartphone will have a 4.7-inch full HD display which presumably uses the Super LCD 3 technology that trumps the Super LCD 2 screen that replaced the Windows-powered HTC 8X. became an overnight sensation.
With the expected resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 468 pixels per inch (ppi) and the so-called SoLux technology which offers a lot of visual enhancements such as increased viewing angles, outdoor visibility and color accuracy, it’s safe to say that the M7 will be a stunning device and beautiful, in terms of appearance.
Rumors of hot specs from the press that originally appeared in XDA Developer Forums also indicates that the device will be powered by a Qualcomm quad-core S4 Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.7GHz and 32GB of internal storage.
Apart from that, the details show that the M7 should include Android 4.2 or 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, 2,300mAh battery, 2GB RAM, 13 megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, 2 megapixel front camera. facing camera, Beats amplifier, and the latest version of HTC’s UX (interface overlay) enhancements, the HTC Sense 5.
From the start, industry experts and observers were quite excited because its Wi-Fi capability was reportedly included in the next-gen (802.11ac) class. There’s been no mention of microSD card support these days, but highly unlikely since HTC has removed the feature on its high-end models.
If the leaked details prove to be true, the claim of trusted XDA forum poster “Football” that the HTC M7 will use on-screen touch controls instead of the solid capacitive buttons that HTC handsets are used to will be validated, and will thus indicate that the manufacturer is finally gearing towards a more user-based approach. more touch-intensive Android. Football has been known for accurately leaking HTC information on XDA.
It can be recalled that in the past, HTC dominated the Android market. However, it ultimately failed to make a lasting impact in this particular segment and turned to the Windows Phone market as a replacement.
If this new smartphone is pegged to stomp on Samsung’s next highly anticipated release called the Galaxy S4, HTC may just be able to turn things around and recover from its sluggish consecutive quarterly results sometime soon.
Last year, the company had a hard time selling high-end devices, which inevitably led to a decline in market share.
For now, many fans are waiting for the full commercial release of this next big flagship device from HTC. It may or may not make its first appearance at CES this year, but it’s sure to raise the bar due to its top-tier features and hardware.
