Fresh specs for the HTC M7 have leaked online, giving us a foretaste of what might be a spiritual, if not direct successor to the One X.
Details of the M7 emerged earlier this month when it was said to boast a five-inch HD screen among other high-end features. However, it now appears that it actually packs a slightly smaller, yet still very much capacious 4.7-inch panel with a full 1080p HD resolution and a positively dazing 468 pixels per inch density that’s over 40 per cent higher than the iPhone 5’s four-inch Retina display.
Better yet, this is of a new ‘SoLux’ variety that apparently offers better viewing angles, outdoor visibility and colour accuracy than the Super LCD panels that typically grace HTC’s flagship devices.
The M7 also rocks a muscular 1.7GHz quad core SoC from Qualcomm teamed with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on board storage (no word yet if there’s microSD support too), a 13-megapixel camera with a pleasantly wide f/2.0 aperture and 1080p video recording skills.
Elsewhere, there is support for 4G LTE along with the next-gen 802.11ac WLAN standard and impressive sonic smarts courtesy of a dedicated Beats Audio amplifier and stereo speakers.
On the software side the M7 is home to the latest HTC’s latest, Sense 5 bespoke UI with Android Jelly Bean possibly installed out of the box, and a feature called Clear Words that increases clarity of phone calls.
The M7 is scheduled to launch Stateside on Verizon and Sprint. Release details for the UK and Europe are still under wraps, but we’ll be sure to bring you these as soon as we have them.
Pricing is also unknown, but is most likely to be in line with the One X. So expect to pay in the range of £500 when bought outright, or around £35 a month on pay monthly deals.
Keep ‘em peeled for more HTC M7 news in the weeks to come.
