After a less-than-stellar 2011 and 2012, HTC is looking for a return to the top of the Android mountain. To do so, the Quietly Brilliant company is going to have get a little noisy in the coming year.
Samsung and other handset makers have been slowly eroding HTC’s grip on the market and 2013 could be a slippery slope. Failure to make an impact over the next few months could really spell disaster for HTC. What to do? Pin your comeback hopes on a new device going under the codename of ‘M7’.
HTC already has lofty expectations for the upcoming device and figures to move 4-5 million in the first quarter alone, according to Focus Taiwan. It’s unclear what the hardware and software is for the M7 but it doesn’t take much to figure a few things out.
Assuming HTC is smart and nimble enough we anticipate a 1080p Super LCD3 display much like the Droid DNA and its international counterpart. We would expect nothing less than 2GB RAM, 4G LTE, a terrific camera, and the latest Snapdragon processor technology.
History tells us that HTC will formally debut the M7 at Mobile World Congress, perhaps as part of a portfolio of new models. Should that be the case then the next few months will be fun to track.
