When it comes to big international product launches, rarely does HTC ever reveal just one phone. So with the days counting down to the manufacturer's Feb. 19 announcement events in London and New York, we're not too shocked to witness the first rumors of additional 2013 HTC devices.
Today's reports come from UnwiredView and notorious leaker Evleaks, who's proven to be pretty accurate in the past. First up is the mid to high-end "M4." Evleaks speculates that the "M4" won't launch alongside the "M7," but will appear later this spring. Specs are said to include an unspecified 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor -- and there are a few to choose from these days -- 2GB of RAM, a 4.3-inch 720p display, 16GB of storage and a 1700mAh battery. Camera-wise, the M4 apparently packs a 13MP, f/2.0 setup with 1080p video recording, and a 1.6MP front-facer. On the software side, we're unsurprisingly looking at Jelly Bean and HTC Sense. LTE is to be offered "where available" the source claims.
Then at entry-level there's the "G2" (no, not that G2), with a 1GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, a 3.5-inch screen, 4GB of storage (plus microSD), a 1500mAh battery and a 5MP camera. That phone reportedly runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
We wouldn't be surprised to see either of these devices on Feb. 19, but we'd expect most of the limelight to be dominated by the high-end models -- the M4 and M7. Speaking of which, we're still dealing in codenames here, and despite the emergence of spec sheets and leaked images, we're still in the dark about HTC's branding for these phones. All will be revealed on Feb. 19, and we'll be live from New York and London to bring you full coverage.
