It’s been a little over a week since we last wrote about the rumored HTC M7, but we already have some new details about the handset that paint it in a very positive light. The new details from Unwired View match up nicely with what we reported last time and give us a closer look at what to expect from the HTC M7. According to the new report, the HTC M7 will feature an optically laminated 4.7-inch 1080p display (that’s a 468ppi count for those keeping track) with a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage, 2,300 mAh battery a 13 megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera (both capable of recording video in 1080p) running on Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5.
The basic specs don’t sound too outlandish, but HTC’s enhancements for its next flagship phone will include a Cinesensor imaging chip to improve the picture quality. HTC will also add super slow-motion and HDR video capabilities to the device. Like the Droid DNA and HTC 8X, the HTC M7 will feature a Beats-designed amplifier and a set of stereo speakers for the built-in speakerphone to improve audio quality.
There are no new details about the HTC M7′s launch date, but it looks like we should expect the phone’s availability to span multiple carriers. The report claims that Verizon and Sprint are already on board, but we could see the HTC M7 show up on AT&T and T-Mobile, as well.
Is a flagship Android phone on all four major US carriers with a 4.7-inch 1080p display, great camera and fairly large battery the right recipe to rebuild HTC into the powerhouse it once was?
