Taiwan based smartphone manufacturer HTC has been one of the most prominent brands in the business for a number of years. However, it has recently been widely publicised that the company has been struggling financially over the last year or so, largely as a result of being unable to compete with market leading devices from rival manufacturers like Apple and Samsung.
Recently though, HTC has launched number of notable handsets which look like they may be able to turn things around for the ailing manufacturer. These include the HTC Butterfly, which is a high-end Android offering, alongside the 8X and 8S models, both of which showcase the Windows Phone 8 operating system.
HTC is also gearing up to launch its latest flagship Android device, the HTC M7. This phone looks set to be one of the most prominent releases from the manufacturer for quite a while, and is causing quite a stir amongst smartphone enthusiasts, with dozens of rumours circulating around the internet regarding the phone’s potential features.
The HTC M7 is rumoured to be unveiled in London in February, and released shortly afterwards. The device is rumoured to include features such as a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 8 megapixel camera, the latest instalments of both the Android operating system and HTC Sense user interface, and perhaps most notably a 4.7 inch display with a full HD resolution of 1080p.
Ahead of its announcement, the front and rear panels of the handset have been leaked in a YouTube video (which can be viewed over at Phones Review) by a component supplier called ETrade Supply. The panels of the handset are shown phones side by side with the US variant of the HTC Butterfly, called the Droid DNA. The differences include a noticeably thinner profile, side mounted camera button and slightly smaller dimensions, which backs up rumours of a 4.7 inch screen.
