Video: HTC M7 Chassis Leaks, Gets Compared to Other HTC Phones

Screen Shot 2013-01-28 at 9.29.07 AM

You can consider the HTC M7 in full hypebeast mode in these last few weeks heading up to MWC this year. HTC’s supposed new flagship phone is leaking left and right and today we get to take a look at the chassis for the device as compared to other recent HTC handsets like the One X and DROID DNA

This video isn’t hiding any juicy details about the upcoming device other than the interesting fact that it looks like the M7 will feature a dedicated camera button. That’s something we had assumed went extinct as far as phones go lately, but other than that, the design for the M7 looks simple. It looks less like the One series and more like the DNA which we aren’t sure is a good thing or not. Either way, we will give the phone the benefit of the doubt until they put all of the pieces together.

    Isn’t it a 5″ screen just like the DNA? Why is it wider? Bigger side bezels?

    Maybe they are making the outside of the phone more simplistic and boring to match their new UI. It’s like in their Windows Phones how they matched the phone to Windows 8, but this time they are matching their Phone to the more Simplistic Sense 5.

    I love my DNA and after seeing this I love it even more. I didnt know my DNA had water Resistance gaskets in it. Time to go swimming!

    • Ron

      I didn’t either know that I have it too, and it makes it even more of an awesome phone. (they should really put that fact in their commercial or something).

  • I’m so glad I didn’t wait for this and got a Xiaomi instead. Good luck, HTC. I owned 4 of your phones and I’ve finally moved on.

    he metalic buttons chip after time, my OG droid camera button did the same thing.

  • After doing size comparisons with the One X and DNA and finding the size much closer to the DNA, concluding that the screen will be 4.7″ is a failure of deductive reasoning.

    I hope the finished product has a bit more style.

  • Flash moved to the other side. INNOVATION!

      Haha I can see the “phone jack is on the bottom” dude from the Samsung commercials with his mind being blown.

    I highly suggest anyone planning to purchase a phone this year wait for the x phone announcement in May. You won’t be disappointed.

      They will be if it turns out to be just a rumor.

      • Bionic

        Haha. Believe me my friend, it’s not just a rumor.

        • Jayrod718

          Motorola is all hype, then you get the phone and have a bucket load of issues and a grainy screen. It will probably get delayed 10 months and be out spec’d when its actually released.

          • Bionic

            That was the old motorola. The Razr Maxx HD was the last phone of the old administration.

  • Really liked the look of the one series. Disappointed with the Rezoundish feel of the DNA, if they keep heading in that direction, it would be kinda sad.

  • Greg

    I am hoping that entire front opening is screen. Also it doesn’t look like their is room for a large battery 🙁

  • Tommy Thompson

    After seeing the design, I’m hoping Sprint would actually do something to change it..

  • nightscout13

    non-metallic buttons, DNA wins…..

    • fanboy1974

      No Sd Card or removable battery, Samsung wins…..

      • nightscout13

        Yes, agree regarding this. But I mentioned DNA cause the video did. I don’t buy HTC products. I think the only one I’ve ever used that was worthy, was the Nexus 1. Everything else is garbage to me
