Here Is Another Look At The HTC M7 – It’s Said to Include An IR Port

Here’s another leaked image of the HTC M7. This time it’s a render of the phone used in a video clip demonstrating how to install a SIM card into the phone.

This image is only a render of the device and isn’t the exact design that HTC is planning on showing off at MWC (does anyone else think it looks vaguely iPhone 5-ish?).

There is also a couple of new things you should know about the device. First off, it’s most likely going to be released to more than one carrier. So there’s no carrier exclusivity for this device like the HTC One X for AT&T and the HTC Droid DNA for Verizon Wireless. This device will be a free-for-all and that’s a smart idea seeing as HTC will need to sell as many of these devices in order to get back into financial shape.

Another leak reports that HTC will include an IR port for the M7. This will essentially turn this phone into a universal remote, which will definitely give this phone a huge leg up compared to its competitors. This is definitely a great feature and one that I personally wanted on my phone ever since Android was first launched.

For those of you who don’t know, here are the specs for the HTC M7:

  • 4.7-inch 1080p 468ppi SoLux display
  • Quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 processor
  • 32GB internal memory (no expandable storage)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 13MP rear-facing camera
  • 2MP front-facing camera (capable of 1080p video capture)
  • Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Sense 5
  • Beats Audio
  • 2,300 mAh battery

The HTC M7 is going to be released sometime this quarter and so far it’s looking to be one hell of a phone.
