HTC’s venerable One X is about to be usurped for the top-dog, flagship position in the company’s lineup. The M7, pictured to the right, will likely be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February.
The leaked renders comes by way of a source of unwiredview. That source supposedly has access to early versions of the ROM for the device:
The render is apparently part of a short animation clip instructing new owners on first-time SIM card installation. However, the lack of branding and other details (distinct screen borders, for instance) suggest that this is not the exact design HTC is expected to debut at next month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The rumored specs for the device are certainly impressive, if not earth-shattering. A 1.7 GHz, quad-core processor powers the 4.7″ 1080p display. The design of the device has already garnered comparisons to the iPhone 5, given that they both feature a two-tone paint job and what appears to be a steel or aluminum rim around the edges. Regardless, this latest device looks interesting – Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain is shaping up to be an interesting show.
