When HTC takes the stage on February 19 to unveil the M7 (still just a codename), a new report out of HTC Source suggest that the company will announce its availability on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. If you see a name missing from the last, you are not alone. According to their sources, Verizon will not be one of the launch partners. Their source was not able to elaborate on why, but one would assume it has to do with the DROID DNA still being somewhat fresh. No better way to kill one smartphone than by launching a similar device 4 months later, right?
Other rumors peg the HTC M7 for a March 8 release overseas. We’ll hopefully know on the 19th of next month when it’ll find its way to the States.
Disappointed by this news? Care one way or the other?

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. (more…)
We always love waking up to press event invites, especially when they are from companies like HTC ahead of a major conference (Mobile World Congress in this case). That usually means something big, because they have decided to do their own thing rather than share the spotlight with dozens of competitors. So mark your calendars, February 19th in NYC is the day that HTC’s shows us “what’s next.”
I think it’s safe to say that we are all expecting this to be the M7. The device has leaked in a variety of ways over the last couple of months
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.

According to Twitter account @evleaks, a reliable source of insider information for the mobile industry, the HTC M7 has been “confirmed” for all of the major U.S. carriers except T-Mobile. Yes, if you do the math or piece together the rest of the puzzle, that means Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint could all see this latest flagship device from HTC. (more…)
OK, so is this the real HTC M7? It could be. It certainly looks a heck of a lot like the purported render we saw earlier on Sunday. Funny thing is, that render was supposedly a mock-up or not real, yet this picture of a phone that mimics it entirely is now, real. Just making sure I have that straight before we dive into it. If that even straightened any of it out. (more…)
So, is this a real render of the HTC M7? Your guess is as good as ours, however, this looks much more like a phone that HTC would produce than the random iPhone-ish, dual-speaker render we saw earlier in the week. Expected to be announced at Mobile World Congress next month, we are seeing a lot to like if this turns out to be the real deal. (more…)
This morning, we are getting another look at the HTC M7. Thanks to a “trusted source” with access, Unwired View has released the above image which lacks any type of branding and has an edge to edge display, but was pulled from an animation which instructs first time owners on how to insert the SIM in the M7.
