HTC to unveil new flagship phone in February with 13 MP camera, 4.7-inch 468 ppi screen, 1.7GHz quad-core, and 2GB RAM [Rumor]


According to a report on Unwired View, HTC may be prepping the next great Android phone for unveiling early next year. The HTC M7 is rumored to improve the current One X in almost every aspect: a 1.7GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB storage memory and the almost-standard LTE and HSDPA capabilities.

More notable, however is the upgrades to the screen and camera. The 4.7 inch screen (rumored to be called the SoLux display) will have an even higher pixel density of 468, up from 440 ppi on the One X and a significant amount above the iPhone’s current 326 pixels per inch. It would be an understatement to say that this phone’s screen is going to be gorgeous to look at. The camera will have a 13-megapixel sensor and f/2.0 lens, another step closer to intruding dedicated-camera territory. Throw in a 2300mAh battery to power the device and it’s looking like HTC has a winner on its hands.

Current rumors put this as a January or February unveiling at Mobile World Congress. If HTC can put together a solid body around all these specs and Sense 5 is vast improvement, I may have just found my next phone.

    @naveed: I like where Apple seems to be doing actually, focusing on making their devices thinner, lighter and better in terms of battery-life.

  • So, PPI is the new rage now? I wish they would compete on things like stability and battery life and usability, rather than pixels in the form of screen or camera. After a certain point, it’s simply nothing but bragging rights at the expense of CPU and power usage. And camera quality actually deteriorates with higher pixel count – smaller pixels = more noise.

    Oh, and the trend towards the ridiculously narrow 16:9 aspect ratio screen is also annoying. I’m glad the Galaxy 4 didn’t go that route with their 15:9 aspect ratio which is better, but 16:10 is ideal in my opinion for almost all cellphone tasks.

    Battery life will make or break this phone. HTC is notorious for bad battery life and I think a 2300 mAh battery will not be enough for a 468 ppi 4.7 inch screen to last a whole day.
