We have seen plenty of leaks surrounding the HTC M7 up until this point. In fact, we saw a rendered image leak last week with another this weekend. And well, another M7 image has leaked and thankfully, we have moved away from the renders. Simply put, this latest HTC M7 leak is a pic of an actual handset and come courtesy of Android Police. The images of the handset look like the previous render and also comes along with some images of what is said to he HTC Sense 5.0.

And while we cannot say that the small differences between the render and the actual images are anything other than small differences, we do have to mention a few. For example, the flash is on the opposite side of the camera and the Beats Audio logo is, well, a logo. On the previous render it appears as text. The HTC logo is also black as opposed to shiny as in the render. Of course, this could mean nothing more than the real-work images of the M7 are showing a prototype.

Moving away from the pics and into what we have learned about the specs. The M7 should arrive with features to include a 4.7-inch 1080p display, quad-core 1.7GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 2300 mAh battery and 13 megapixel rear-facing camera. The HTC M7 is also expected to be running Jelly Bean with version 5.0 of the HTC Sense user interface.

All this being said, while we have yet to hear anything from HTC in terms of when we can expect an announcement, things are shaping up like we may see something at Mobile World Congress, which will take place in Barcelona at the end of February. If nothing else, the M7 appears to be giving the HTC name quite a bit of a boost in the Android world. Stay tuned for more details.

    I’ve been an ATT customer for as long as I can remember. I went from BB to iPhone when the 3G came out. I’ve been a 4S user since the device launched. I stopped upgrading when I saw the weak incremental 5! So, looking to the Android world, I wanted a 4.7-5.0 inch screen, screaming processor, latest Android OS and all of my apps and I wanted to stay with ATT and move to their LTE network.

    Frankly, design, tactile response, minimalist OS and no need for a “cover” to destroy the design were all reasons that I began looking at the HTC One X+ with a great display and the unique carbon fiber back.. But I have to say, this M7 will be my next device when it’s launched. It looks like it satisfies all of my requirements and is of great build quality. I’ve read a number of comments that it’s just a better X+ or the Droid sister device. But as someone who has been an Apple bigot for a while, this phone will push me over the edge to Android.

    Apple is behind the curve. I love the OS and the ecosystem, but it’s no longer leading edge tech. And the penchant to stick with small screen sizes is just darn stupid! The 4.7 inch HTC feels right in my hand and is plenty of screen real estate for quality video and web surfing. I don’t need to replace my tablet, but I do want the phone to allow me to minimize using it except for business.

    In closing, I may be new to the Android OS but I have to say, the current 4.2 release and the rumored 5.0 are reasons enough to finally make the switch with the kind of hardware that’s being designed and put into the marketplace. Apple is a terrific phone with a great OS. I just can’t wait for the company to finally get their heads around the up-sizing of screen real estate for us “older” folks!

    Still a tech geek at heart! Looking forward to the M7.
