HTC M4 to be Facebook Home-less Device With Ultrapixel Camera

HTC M4

Back in early February, specs were leaked for an HTC device codenamed the M4. The M4 didn’t have any specs that jumped off the page, but now there is an apparent image floating around the web for the upcoming device. And what excellent timing and coincidence that the HTC First was debuted yesterday, with almost matching specs. A 4.3″ 720p display, Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, and not much else going on. 

Basically, think of the M4 as HTC’s 2013 mid-range device without Facebook’s Home launcher baked in. What you are left with is an affordable, entry-level device that anyone could get their hands on. If you are looking for a main selling point, it is rumored to come equipped with an ultrapixel camera along its backside.

While HTC has yet to make any of this official, this is something we can possibly have to look forward to as the year presses on.

Thoughts?

    Ultrapixel = 4 Megapixels
    4 Megapixels = 4MP
    4MP = 4M
    4M = M4

    Naming scheme cracked, HTC. Game over.

    It’s a little bit to wide, and the camera design looks kinda dumb.

    This will be perfect for the girl, the Inc 4G’s 4″ screen is getting to be a bit too cramped for her.Thank goodness it isn’t a Facebook phone, she deleted her account years ago.

  • Matthew Merrick

    HTC One, & HTC ½ :P

  • Kevin McDole

    Thought we agreed we were only going to release ONE phone.

  • chris125

    If they would have made it 2gb of ram it would have been a solid option for those who complain about “huge phones”

  • Sqube

    I know this is an overreaction, but I can’t help feeling that this is the beginning of the part of the story where they forget to have a halo device and start announcing them every six weeks. Again.

    There’s nothing in this phone to indicate it. But HTC, you’ve hurt me before. I don’t know if I can trust again.

    • chris125

      Seems like HTC is up to the same thing as last year, say one thing about making less phones then do the opposite.

      • ERIC REED

        Someone needs to make a new phone…Verizon customer and I’m getting bored in 2013!!

      • Pamela Franck

        Yeah, because nobody else is announcing new phones??? This whole thing with HTC watering down their brand with too many phones has to die. Samsung, the darling of people that say this, had twice as many phones in 2012 than HTC did (not including all the galaxy tabs), and it isn’t looking like they are slowing down this year.

        • chris125

          Except Samsung isn’t saying they are making less phones or abandoning their phones for updates

    These should be named the HTC Bankruptcy and the HTC Liquidation. And call the camera the blurrypixel. That’ll bring them closer to reality.

  • Cheng GuanHao

    Call it HTC Homeless.

  • Nagini

    Giant turd.

  • Warwick

    They should call it the HTC Uno.

    What happened to the “One” in the HTC One? They should call this the HTC “we promise this is the last One”. Seriously.

    • Dylan Patel

      Last flagship.

  • TylerChappell

    Why in the world can’t manufacturers decide where to put the LED flash in relation to the damn camera?

  • Damian

    It has three soft keys instead of two?? Sketchy…….

    • Alessio

      all of htc devices have three soft keys

      • Damian

        You poor soul, you haven’t heard of the two button layout of the One (M7) which the M4 is somewhat based on?

        • Austin Warren

          That’s one out of their 700 devices

          • Damian

            But seeing as how HTC is trying to reinvent themselves going forward, I’m surprised to see they didn’t push the two button layout onto the M4. I would have expected to see a two button set-up on all of their devices going forward. I’m aware every other HTC device has more then two buttons, but I’m not referring to previous devices, just the One and this M4.

          • zwade

            Everything pre-One series had 4.

    • chris125

      looks like the htc droid incredible 4g lte front

  • gokusimpson

    At least it has a front facing speaker

    • Austin Warren

      pretty sure that’s an ear piece

      • Diablo81588

        No it has a front facing speaker. Two if I’m not mistaken.

  • Austin Warren

    oh god, more!?

  • Alan Paone

    That bezel on the bottom hurts my heart a little, but I”m kind of glad such a solid gadget is ‘midrange’ now.
