The HTC M7 is expected to be the device which returns HTC to its former glory. The first time we heard about the phone was when news broke that HTC was sourcing enough components from its suppliers to build 4 to 5 million HTC M7s in the first quarter of 2013. While HTC typically waits until Mobile World Congress to unveil its flagship device, the latest rumor that’s floating around the web claims that HTC will be unveiling the M7 next week at CES and that the device will feature on-screen buttons.
By some indirect information M7 might be announced on CES event. Moreover it might have screen buttons instead of hardware touch buttons...@football4pda
If the rumor turns out to be true, it’ll be the first time that HTC debuts a global phone at CES. But we have our doubts. Currently, HTC does not have a press event scheduled for the week of CES and the company doesn’t have a booth on the show floor. If we were planning to launch a new flagship Android phone at CES, those would be two standard requirements if we wanted to give the phone the exposure it deserves.
We expect HTC will hold off on announcing the HTC M7 for a little while longer. If HTC is still planning on bringing the phone to market in Q1, HTC has more than enough time to schedule its own event sometime between CES and MWC which would maximize media coverage without the distractions which accompany the major trade shows. We’ll have to wait and see how this all plays out.
When would you unveil the HTC M7 to guarantee maximum exposure?
