We all know how great HTC's hardware is. Their problem is the software and updates. Now we've talked about this so many times before, we really don't need to do it again. In the beginning of 2012, at Mobile World Congress, HTC announced the One line which was full of great phones, and one that didn't need to be made. They showed off a completely revamped version of Sense as well. But it was still a bit bulky for power users.
Now, according to Focus Taiwan, HTC Is getting prepped for production of the HTC M7. Which is going to be the manufacturer's next flagship phone. Focus Taiwan is also claiming that HTC is working with its semiconductor and casing suppliers to be sure there's enough components to have 4 to 5 million of these built for the first quarter of 2013.
Currently the details of the HTC M7 are still a mystery. We haven't heard of anything yet for specs or carriers, or anything. Nothing has shown up in benchmark sites yet either. But we are assuming it'll be a 1080p display like in the Droid DNA, and probably a Super LCD3 display. Powered by the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and a couple gigabytes of RAM. I'd expect specs around what the HTC Droid DNA has, seeing as it was announced and launched just last month. And this HTC M7 is supposedly coming out in the first quarter of 2013.
As far as seeing it at CES, well who knows. Usually HTC doesn't announce much at CES, they do the most of their announcements for early in the year at Mobile World Congress which takes place in February in Barcelona, Spain. With Samsung having such a lead over the other manufacturers in market share, HTC needs to do something big with this device and not allow carriers to have exclusivity. Let's see if HTC will listen to us this time.
We know many of you out there are currently on a Samsung or Nexus device, but don't you want HTC to make a comeback? It'll mean more innovation for Android because Samsung will have competition again. So what do you think, could the HTC M7 be a game changer, or do we need more information first?
