HTC has produced a handful of incredible Android-powered smartphones in 2012, but competition from Samsung and Apple has taken its toll on the struggling manufacturer. While the company’s financial situation has been slipping over the past year, HTC has managed to remain profitable and is hoping to turn things around in the first half of next year.
According to Focus Taiwan, HTC is prepping for production for the HTC M7 — HTC’s next flagship phone. The source also claims that HTC is working with its semiconductor and casing suppliers to secure enough components to build 4 to 5 million HTC M7s in the first quarter of 2013.
Details about the HTC M7 are still a mystery at this point, but it’s safe to assume the device will outclass all of HTC’s phones from 2012 and feature the latest version of Android. We assume the most powerful Qualcomm processor will also be included, as well as the amazing 1080p Super LCD3 display that’s currently featured on the Droid DNA and HTC J Butterfly. The HTC M7 will most likely make its debut at Mobile World Congress in late February.
We know most of you are perfectly happy with Samsung leading the Android charge, but do any of you hope HTC can regain its past glory and keep the competition alive?
