HTC M7 flagship smartphone coming to CES 2013

The HTC M7 could be set for a CES debut next week, according to the latest rumour.

XDA-Developers forum member Football – who has a bit of a history with accurate HTC snippets – has reported that HTC’s next flagship device could be set to take a bow at the Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas from January 8.

Previously, it had been expected that the HTC M7 might make an appearance at the Mobile World Congress show at the end of February.

The HTC M7 will follow on from last year’s HTC One X as the company’s flagship smartphone. Previous reports suggest that the device will have a 4.7-inch full HD 1080p ‘SoLux’ display. Not only will this be around 40 per cent sharper than existing high-end smartphones, it’ll also have superior viewing angles, colour accuracy and outdoor visibility.

Powering this will be a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm CPU backed by 2GB of RAM, and there’ll be 32GB of internal storage on hand.

There’ll apparently be a considerable step up in the camera department too, from the HTC One X’s 8-megapixel example to a new 13-megapixel unit with a ‘Cinesensor’ image sensor. This piece of kit will enable super slo-mo and HDR when shooting video.

As you’d expect, this cutting edge Android device will run on Android Jelly Bean, and will also run on a brand new version of HTC’s Sense UI.

Football’s latest rumour adds to the spec-ulation by suggesting that the HTC M7 will have physical keys rather than the standard capacitive buttons below the screen.

We’ve got less than a week to find out if this latest rumour of a CES launch is accurate or not.
