We have been talking about HTC M7 now and then. Its features have been leaked many times but the price and release date for unknown. So now what we have with us is release and price of the phone for Europe. The phone would be launched on March 8 for $879.
Even though HTC itself hasn’t given any confirmation about it, it is rumored to be launching its flagship smartphone the M7 shortly. However, according to Citigroup analyst Kevin Chang, for those of you waiting to get your hands on the M7, there could be a bit more delay until the launch. Components of the phone like metal casings and antennas are in short supply, which could adversely affect the shipping of the M7 handsets. While initial estimates pegged the Q1 number at 3 million, Chang now expects only 500 million M7 handsets to be shipped during this time.
The M7’s rumored specs do sound quite interesting – with a 4.7-inch full HD display with a massive 468 ppi, a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, this would’ve definitely been a worthy contender to the current favorite, the Samsung Galaxy S3. The M7 is also rumored to have an Ultrapixels camera, which would use three 4.3MP layers within a sensor to reproduce color better and capture sharper images.
Many people are hoping that HTC would unveil the M7 during an upcoming press event scheduled on 19 February, 2013. However, if this information about the shortage of components is indeed true, we recommend that those wishing to buy the M7 pre-order it as soon as the offer opens up. Who knows, any delay could end up making the consumers wait for almost a whole quarter. Remember the Nexus 4?
HTC M7 is being considered the camera wonder in the smartphone world, thanks to its ultra pixels. Yes they are called ultra pixels which are a specific type of sensors imbued with three layers each with 4.3 MP resolutions. Ultra pixels allow for sharper and accurate color reproduction much better than any of the current smartphone can present. So that means HTC M7 would bring a tough competition for apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3.
It is also being heard that sensor on HTC M7 are almost like the ones on Nokia 808 pure view which is endowed with 41MP sensor.
The rumors about HTC M7 camera is that it will have a 13MP camera. The more about HTC M7 would be released on February 19th , the day when phone would be launched.… Read the rest
News about the latest offering from HTC—the M7 being expected in stalls soon had brought in simples on loyalists of the top-notch maker of touch phones. Fans and critics have had been promised for a glance into the wonder device from HTC at the Mobile World Congress, Barcelona. And we were prepared to wait till 25th February without a hitch.
However, rumors have been buzzing on a pre-Mobile World Congress launch of the M7 being planned by the Taiwanese makers. Moreover, this comes from a tweet from an insider who has been associated with the company for some time now. The date, as per the rumor mills, is 19th February; the place—London.
Rewinding to the features that make the M7 a device worth lopping up, read up the basics once again:
Just when you thought the real battle was between the flagship devices from Samsung and Apple, HTC also jumped into the game with its amazing M7 smartphone. Even though HTC hasn’t yet provided any confirmation, we’re hearing many rumors about the Taiwanese phone manufacturer working on the M7 or Magnificent Seven for 2013. So, why is it that we think it could make life more difficult for the Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5?
HTC M7: We’d initially heard that the M7 would feature a 5-inch display, but now we’re expecting it to be just 4.7-inches. Even though this makes it smaller than the Galaxy S3’s 4.8-inch screen, it is expected to have full HD capability, producing images at 1080p. Powering the M7 is a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, making it the most powerful among these 3 phones. We can also see the M7 running Android Jelly Bean 4.2 with a new version of HTC Sense overlay. In terms of camera, we hear that the M7 would have a 13 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera, both of which would have full HD 1080 capabilities.
Samsung Galaxy S3: Samsung’s flagship bestseller features a 4.8-inch display with a 1280X720 pixel resolution. While it is comparable with the M7’s display, its tech specs lag far behind. The Galaxy S3 is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. Even in terms of camera power, its 8 MP rear camera and 1.9 MP front-facing camera can’t be a match to that of the M7’s cameras. The Galaxy S3 runs on Android 4.1, which is older than the OS we would get to see on the M7.
Apple iPhone 5: Apple’s latest iPhone failed to make a grand mark in the smartphone market, and will find it even harder when the M7 also launches. With its far from satisfactory 4-inch display having a 1136X640 pixel resolution, it lost out to its competition during 2012. Even in terms of power, the iPhone 5’s 1.3 GHz dual-core Apple A6 processor and 1 GB RAM seems inadequate in comparison with its Android competitors. The iPhone 5 runs on iOS 6, which is a lot smoother than the previous versions, but at the end of the day, does get a little bit boring given that nothing much has actually changed, unlike in the case of Android. While its 8 MP rear camera is comparable with the Galaxy S3, its front-facing camera has a resolution of just 1.2 MP.
