More Leaks of the HTC M7; This One Might be the Real Deal

January 20, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Earlier today, we saw some renders of the HTC M7 that’s supposedly coming to Mobile World Congress next month in Barcelona. While it looked like the HTC Droid DNA mixed with the HTX 8X (Windows Phone 8), it didn’t look all that real. Now Android Police has gotten their hands on some pictures of the actual device.

Lately, we’ve seen so many leaks, renders and rumors of the HTC M7. So it’s definitely coming soon. Now the strange part on the picture shown above, is that they have switched the Home and Recents buttons. Why can’t HTC just use on screen buttons? As we said earlier, this device looks a lot like the Droid DNA on Verizon, or the J Butterfly in Japan. But there are some notable differences from the Droid DNA and the M7. For instance on the M7 the flash is on the other side, and the HTC logo is glossy black opposed to embedded Chrome on the Droid DNA.

We’ve also got screenshots of HTC Sense 5.0. Which we’ve heard has been scaled back even more. But it still looks a bit odd, right? Although in the screenshots it shows that the version of Sense and Android are protected, so we can’t actually see what version this particular device is running.

You probably noticed that the icons in the dock look pretty odd. To say the least. You will also notice from the pictures above, that the front-facing camera is indeed there which was missing from the renders shown earlier today.

Now this could all be hoax. We’ve seen this happen before, with the so-called Sony Nexus, and a few other devices leading up the Nexus 4 announcement back in October. So make sure you take this with a grain of salt, and we’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date on all details and news regarding the M7.

Are you interested in the HTC M7? It’s indeed a good looking device, I only hope that HTC puts this device on all the carriers instead of just doing a carrier exclusive with AT&T or Verizon. Who else agrees? Let us know in the comments below.
