Android Police has received some more images of the HTC M7 that confirms the design of the HTC M7 images that leaked yesterday. Unfortunately for many of you, it also confirms that HTC is in fact re-mapping their capacitive buttons, relocating the home button to the far right and the multitasking button to the middle.
The backside is slightly different compared to the previous leak. The Beats Audio logo is there, but there is no text accompanying it.
There are also some new images regarding Sense 5.0. The icons resemble the icons from the past leaked images of Sense 5.0, but there is one major difference; the Sense clock widget has received a remodel as well. You can also see that there should be new widgets for the news, social networking, and HTC tips.
The HTC M7 looks like it will very much resemble the HTC Droid DNA and HTC 8X. I can see where people have concerns over the re-mapping of the capacitive buttons (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it HTC), but it really shouldn’t be too hard to get used to.
I love the design of the HTC M7, and I’m glad that it should be available for multiple carriers and in multiple colors.
Sense 5, however, looks like it’s going to be a miss for me. I do understand that HTC wants to revamp their style in order to create a more simple UI, but I’m not liking what I’m seeing. I feel like they’re sacrificing aesthetics in order to seem new and bold, but aesthetics is kind of the only thing HTC really has going for it right now. Why change that?
Here are the specs that the HTC M7 will come with:
- 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
- IR Port (universal remote control capabilities)
There’s still 1 month before the MWC in February, so perhaps it isn’t too late for HTC to make some much needed alterations to the M7.
