A new HTC M4 rumor mentions specs and design details alongside a purported image of the unannounced device.
The article, which has been published on Phone Arena via @evleaks, says that the HTC M4 will be positioned as an HTC One-like device, but with lower specs (something similar to what the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is in comparison to the S3). Of course, we’ll have to wait for an official announcement from HTC to see if these rumors will be confirmed.
In terms of look, the M4 is said to be very similar to the HTC One, but the handset will obviously be smaller and the quality of the materials used will be slightly lower (a previous report said that HTC would be using a metal chassis exclusively from Catcher, in order to avoid the supply problems it faced with the One). Still, you’ll have a tough time telling them apart without a closer look. Looking at the posted picture (which you can see below), I would tend to agree.
Most of the specs rumored in the previous report have appeared in this one, too. The previous M4 rumor mentioned a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, while the current one talks about a dual-core CPU (Qualcomm has recently demonstrated the dual-core 400). But, while it was previously said that the smartphone would have 1GB of RAM, @evleaks says that 2GB of RAM will be found on board.
The two sources agree on the 4.3-inch 720p resolution display, the UltraPixel camera and Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 OS. But now we’re also told the HTC M4 will pack 16GB of internal memory and a 1700mAh battery, which is non-removable.
As for release date, the end of the second quarter is mentioned. The previous rumor said it would be coming in June, with LTE on board.
Would you be interested in getting an HTC M4 that will offer you such specs?
