Rumor: HTC M7 Hitting Stores on March 8, in White and Black

htc logo

According to sources who spoke with HTC Source, a typically reliable HTC insider outlet, the oft-rumored M7 will launch on March 8. The phone will almost undoubtedly be unveiled at HTC’s press event on February 19 in NYC, which both Dave and I will be on-hand for. If this rumor holds true, it matches up to previous rumors that pegged the device for a Q1 2013 release. We should also point out that the M7 could show up in the UK and elsewhere in Europe before it arrives in the States. 

On a phone front, the M7 will reportedly arrive in two colors:  black and white/silver. We have already seen what we believe to be the black version, something we’d call somewhat uninspiring from a design standpoint, so a white version with silver accents sounds enticing.

As a recap, the HTC M7 is rumored to sport a 4.7″ FHD display (1080p), 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, 13MP camera, and HTC’s new Sense 5.0 UI.

As HTC Source points out, the last bit of info we have yet to see revealed really is the final name. Any suggestions or guesses?

    Based on model numbers, I have always considered the Rezound to be the successor to the Thunderbolt, and now the DNA the successor to the Rezound.
    So for me, more or less, my Droid DNA is kinda like Thunderbolt 3.0, only less of a failure.

    There is a reason why suddenly the Nexus 4 is available at the play store and other outlets like Best buy and shipping even b4 you could hang up the phone. Yes HTC is about to unleash their monster and that will make all those who have been trying in vain to procure the N4 jump ship if the M7 arrives by the rumored march 8th date. Lets not forget the Samsung GS4 is also around the corner so the release window for all these mega devices to make a mark on their sales is getting narrower. Folks 2013 will be a year of Mega devices with killer specs all around…no free ride for the GS4 like they did in 2012 with the GS3. A lot of the Android OEMs have stepped up their game this year, Windows phone is also doing their thing w/ the Nokia Lumia series, Blackberry 10 also looks promising. So if you snooze you loose…that is why i slightly fault Google/LG for not making proper use of all those weeks to populate the Nexus 4 to everyone who wanted one. That delay has changed some minds…some might now be looking towards the M7, Sony Xperia L, GS4, the rumored Moto X device and a few more surprises to come at MWC. I am rocking the Nexus 4 which i love but i will be looking forward to see what else the M7 is packing besides the rumored specs. I am having a phone-gasm just thinking of what is yet to come…jk

  • Rezound HD! lol

  • john

    Something with at least 32GB on board or Microslot, otherwise no thank you.

  • tonyZ

    I’m glad it’s a 4.7in. 5 and up is just ridiculous. I’ll be ready for march 8th!!

  • IxCantxPlayxMW3

    This is basically a DNA+

    • Noel

      DNA with a 4.7″ screen and some cosmetic changes. I just hope for a super big battery hopefully a removable one and more int storage options 32/64GB and hopefully an SD card slot.

      • IxCantxPlayxMW3

        That’s Seems like every manufacturer is starting to use non removable batteries and no sd slot. I do agree with the 32/64 gb int storage should be standard now, but it’s htc, so here’s hoping to that!

  • WCM3

    i hope the battery isn’t a pile of sh!t..

  • Sounds like a awesome phone! Until the Sense, immediate deal-breaker. That and HTC phones are a pain in the a** when it comes to unlocking and Rom selection. Dont think I’ll be clicking any more articles about the M7. Sigh. Guess there isn’t much HTC competition for the X phone

  • Sith77

    So does this mean the DNA should be getting an update soon to 4.2 with sense 5 ? I mean it is the pretty much the same device …………………….

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Yup…. It’s always “Pretty Much the same device” . . . . until you don’t see an update for MONTHS. . . . Combine that with Verizon and you need to prepare for the long haul.

  • NyReynolds

    If HTC changed their icons I’d take their phones more seriously. that phone icon is butt ugly and the rest of their icons aren’t that great either. that being said, i would like to see HTC rebound with sales.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      ummm from the leaks.,. they have changed ALL of their icons. Nothing looks the same.

      • NyReynolds

        hmm…. i’ll have to take another look at the leaks. but they are leaks, nothing set in stone yet. eh, i’d probably root it and throw CM or AOKP on it anyway

      • NyReynolds

        just looked at the leaks. that ugly phone icon is still there. I know its petty (especially considering my other comment) but i can’t get over how ugly that icon is. oh they’re icons they use for the settings (not the actual setting icon, but the menu icons inside) are disturbingly ugly as well

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    CAN’T WAIT for this device. Looking forward to the smaller screen size with the 1080pz! . . . I’m almost 100% sure I’m getting this device and selling my S3.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    THANK YOU for bringing us BACK from the BlackBerry show all over the net today. Thank you Kellex.

  • DJyoSNOW

    I have the DNA so this is an epic pass

    • Chris Kendall

      Yes and no. I’m very happy with the DNA at this point, but if that 13MP shooter is a significant upgrade to the meh 8MP we have, I’ll be a bit disappointed. Bigger battery and more storage would be a bit of a thumb in the eye too given that those were the hang ups that critics pointed out. An about face on those issues would make me wonder why they didn’t do it right the first time.

      • TylerChappell

        Why didn’t they do it right the first time? Verizon. That’s why.

  • Dave

    So….a multi carrier spec bumped DNA (in a nutshell)? I bet Samsung yawned…

  • MKader17

    Wait… So a company is going to debut an android phone and ACTUALLY have a release date within a month. Did HTC hire some Apple execs???

  • I_shower_naked

    HTC One Incredible Sensation X

    • nwd1911

      Thank you for actually responding to the question of naming. This made me smile. HTC Two Fantastic XL (long shot, I know)

    • Kane Stapler

      Why is no one going with the obvious HTC 2X?

  • breadable


  • Joejoe

    Pass. Waiting for the Xperia z or the x phone.

  • I’m ready for X phone rumors!

    • Bahaa

      You avatar sucks d00d

  • hjm331

    No carriers announced?

    • jasaero

      I wish this question could go away and all the OEMs would just start making devices for every network and selling them day one with international devices at full price whether the carriers like it or not.

      • michael arazan

        And bring back expandable storage, cater to the customers and not the carriers who want people paying for the price gouging data and having to stream everything.

    • Dr_Buttballs

      Technically no nothing announced.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      I mean… can’t really have carriers announced for a device that doesn’t exists
