HTC M7 set to have “simple and clean” UI, all-black design

28

the rumored HTC M7 has gotten some insider information leaked, and HTCSource has the scoop. According to the source, the HTC M7 will be running Android 4.1.2 (which has a possibility of being updated before it is released), and a new version of HTC Sense, more than likely 5.0.

On top of this, the source says that the new Sense will have a brand new, “simple and clean” UI overhaul. According to HTCSource:

“The lock screen and HTC apps have received a huge facelift and HTC has tweaked the software to make it easier to use. One example of these new tweaks is the on-screen volume controls which features a shortcut that jumps directly into the phone’s volume settings page. Unfortunately, our source has debunked the recent rumor that the HTC M7 will feature on-screen buttons.

 

The physical design of the HTC M7 is said to carry a few design cues from the HTC Droid DNA with an black shell and a “very nice looking beveled edge” along the screen. While previous rumors indicated that the M7 would be constructed with a unibody aluminum shell, our source says that the phone he’s seen is constructed with the same materials as the Droid DNA.”

As far as specs go, the device is said to come with a quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 CPU, 4.7″ 1080×1920 display, 32GB internal storage (possibly with no expansion), and is being tested as we speak on Sprint’s LTE network. We should be seeing the device in Q1 of 2013, and we hope to see more info as time goes on. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.

  1. Not a bad device at all. And I have a feeling this info is legit as there’s no extravagant claims being made. I would still want to know about the camera sensor though, rumors have claimed a 13MP sensor, let’s hope that’s real.

  2. 1. Will this new version of sense hog internal memory, slow the phone down and cripple vital functions such as Bluetooth like all the other versions?

    2. Hitting “post” instead of “read” via the mobile site causes the site to just go back to the main screen. Please fix.

But thanks to a few rumors, we have been able to gather as much info about the device as possible. But now a new HTC tipster has revealed substantial information about the upcoming flagship from the Taiwanese manufacturer, and it does seem believable. The info was accessed by HTC Source and we can’t help but be excited. First up, the device is believed to get a major facelift in terms of UI and the way its core apps work. Also on board is said to be a new version of Sense, presumably Sense 5. Other info about the device was also leaked and the source claims that the new HTC flagship will not have any onscreen buttons contrary to what yesterday’s rumor suggested. We certainly don’t mind that last bit. Also confirmed are the 4.7-inch 1080p display panel as well as 32GB of onboard memory (believed to be non-expandable) and the Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 (S4 Pro) quad core SoC. We’re pretty excited by this revelation but it would take a few more days of wait to know what exactly is in store for us. We are certainly looking forward to the cosmetic tweaks that are said to be made with the software. This is what the source had to say: “The lock screen and HTC apps have received a huge facelift and HTC has tweaked the software to make it easier to use. One example of these new tweaks is the on-screen volume controls which features a shortcut that jumps directly into the phone’s volume settings page. Unfortunately, our source has debunked the recent rumor that the HTC M7 will feature on-screen buttons.

While previous rumors indicated that the M7 would be constructed with a unibody aluminum shell, our source says that the phone he’s seen is constructed with the same materials as the Droid DNA“. I hope what we have here is indeed true, as it looks like a remarkable device to own. Having said that, let’s take this with a pinch of salt for now as there’s nothing better than an official confirmation from HTC. Well, the days are nigh for an announcement, so we might not have to wait all that long. What’s your take on this new revelation? Do you think this is legit?
