Specs Leak For HTC M4 and G2 Devices, Probably Not Debuting Alongside the M7

This morning, new information is coming to light on devices from HTC that isn’t associated with the M7. I know, it’s hard to believe. With the eve of announcement upon us, it’s hard not to focus on their next flagship device. To fill out the rest of the Q1-Q2 2013 lineup, specs for two rumored devices, codenamed the M4 and G2 (not the same HTC G2 that was released to T-Mo), have hit the web. 

Out of the two, we can expect the M4 to be the One S to the M7’s One X of last year. Slightly lower specs, but still a pretty impressive sounding device. The M4 is to apparently feature a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4.3″ 720p display, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP back-facing camera, come running Android 4.2+ out of the box, and feature a 1,700mAh battery. While all of that sounds nice, the 1,700mAh is really throwing us off. How they intend on keeping the device alive for more than 4 hours will be nothing short of a technological miracle in our book.

As for the G2, it is said to run a 1GHz processor, boast a 3.5″ HVGA display, rock 512MB of RAM, and grace a 1,400mAh battery. Not much to say here except that this phone will be their neglected stepchild. Below we have the specs listed out.

M4 Specs:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon
  • 4.3″ 720p display
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of storage
  • 13MP camera f2.0
  • 1.6MP front camera
  • 1700mAh battery
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

G2 Specs:

  • 1.0GHz ARM Cortex
  • 3.5″ HVGA display
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB of storage + microSD
  • 5MP camera
  • 1400mAh battery
  • Android 4.0+ Ice Cream Sandwich

By looking at these specs, you can expect us to probably never bring up the “G2” ever again. It’s 2013, and HTC thinks 512MB of RAM is suitable for even their low end phones still? Not in our book.

According to Unwired View, it doesn’t seem that HTC will be announcing these devices alongside the M7 in a couple weeks at their events or even showing them off at MWC in Barcelona. Instead, they will be ready for launch “sometime in the Spring” and that’s all we know. Interesting move by HTC if that turns out true.

Thoughts on the M4?
