It’s naturally assumed that most of the big device announcements as of late will take place at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona next month. However, unknown sources are stating that the HTC M7 may in fact be announced sooner.
What will become the second 1080p device to be released by HTC, the M7 will undoubtedly generate quite a bit of excitement. HTC might be aiming to shine a more noticeable spotlight on the device by initiating its own announcement event.
While MWC takes place between February 25-28, it seems that there is a possibility that HTC will announce the M7 less than a week prior, on February 19, in different location, possibly London. Keep in mind that this rumor is far from confirmed at this time, however it would actually make sense seeing as HTC isn’t a stranger to product announcements in London.
While we don’t know the full details of the device for sure, we can only assume that they will be somewhat on par with what we heard from a different report earlier this month. This means we could be seeing a 4.7-inch display paired with a 1.7GHz Snapdragon Pro CPU, sporting the latest version of Android and possibly a new version of Sense UI. Other rumored features include a 12MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera, making this device a photo junkie’s dream.
To fuel this rumor even further, another source states that the device will debut on AT&T, with releases on Verizon and Sprint to follow. Remember to take this with a grain of salt until you hear otherwise!
