HTC’s next flagship Android phone, the M7, has been speculated about before, but now firmer details on the (alleged) spec have been leaked.
The M7 will have a 4.7 inch screen, which isn’t unusual – but its high pixel density is, with a figure of 468ppi (pixels per inch) being bandied about. That’s way higher than the current iPhone, or the current anything for that matter (the iPhone 5 is 326ppi, the Lumia 920 is 332ppi, the Galaxy Nexus 316ppi, for example).
As well as this super-sharp picture, better colours and outdoor visibility are also promised from the screen, and if it lives up to all this, the HTC M7 could make quite a profound initial impact on the onlooker.
A 1.7GHz quad-core CPU is thought to be powering that display, and indeed HTC will need something chunky to shift all those pixels about and keep things buttery smooth.
2GB of RAM is on board coupled with 32GB of storage, plus there’s a 13-megapixel camera, and LTE support.
If these rumoured specs are true (provided courtesy of Unwired View), and the phone hits a reveal at MWC in February – as is HTC’s target, apparently – then the handset could be in good shape to sell some serious units.
HTC could definitely do with another Desire type success right now.
