[Rumor] HTC M7 Pushes Specification Limits

HTC M7 to launch at Mobile World Congress in February 2013

As there have been rumors about an upcoming high-end smartphone with crazy specs, named the HTC M7 – a successor to the famous and undeniably scrumptious HTC One X, the smartphone is said to be coming out of the shell and heading into the spotlight at the upcoming Mobile World Congress on February 2013. Sources from Unwired View and Twitter leaker @evleaks were generous enough to share some of the specs that might redefine what a high-end smartphone is supposed to contain: Processor While most high-end processors today are clocked at around 1.2 to 1.4 Ghz, the HTC M7 has pushed it even further, raising the bar to 1.7 Ghz, thanks to the quad-core power of the Snapdragon CPU. This much power will be needed to fully support a rumored new version of the Sense UI, called Sense 5, and this will be running Android Jelly Bean version 4.X. Display The HTC M7 will boast a 4.7 inch 1080p full HD display, packing a relatively huge pixel density of 468 ppi. Expect crystal clear screens, maybe clear enough to let you drool all over the place as you witness the magic of a full HD screen, thanks to what HTC seemed to package into a technology called “SoLux.” Whatever that means, we will all see in two months time. Storage, Audio, RAM  If Android fans already found the Galaxy S3 delectable with a 1 GB RAM, how about a 2 GB ram for such a high-end smartphone? This much storage would be big enough to support the way HTC handles RAM management. Also, the HTC M7 will be offering a 64 GB storage capacity – compared to the 32 GB of its predecessor, which will be more than enough to store all your media content. Also, imagine having to listen and watch your content with the Beats audio software, and expect enhanced call quality with a software HTC calls “Clear Words.” Obvious enough. Camera So, the 8-MP camera is still not good enough? What would you say to HTC when they tell you that they decided to put a 13-MP camera rear facing camera with an even larger f/2.0 aperture, with HDR video recording and a software that would allow slow-motion video capture, and a 2-MP camera that can capture 1080p HD video? I say amen to that. Network and Battery This much strength would require so much stored power, and the HTC M7 keeps up with a 2,300 mAh lithium ion battery. They also equipped the M7 with LTE and compatibility with the new 802.11ac WLAN networks, which further confirms that this will be a flagship phone. iPhone Killer? These days, while people still see the iPhone as one heck of an elegant device, it is inevitable that at some point Apple seemed to have slacked in its innovative culture with the hop from iPhone 4 to the latest iPhone 5. Sure, the iPhone 5 has the specs to kick off its competitors right out of the bat, but in terms of […] Read more »
