T-Mobile the only carrier not confirmed to offer HTC M7

m7_cropped_leak_wildT-Mobile USA is the only major carrier that has yet to sign on for the upcoming HTC M7, according to the often-correct @evleaks. AT&T is the third wireless provider to jump on board with the device, following Sprint and Verizon. Those two, by the way, have been tied to the device for a while now.

 

With roughly a month to go before Mobile World Congress, there’s plenty of time for T-Mobile to jump in line. Truth be told, I find it ridiculous to think that the carrier would not want to offer the same phone as the three bigger players. For a company who continues to struggle without the iPhone, T-Mobile should be doing their part to keep pace on every other front.

As a recap, the HTC M7 is expected to be unveiled at MWC in late February. Thus far, leaked renders and images suggest a form factor that blends the One X+ and Droid DNA with a splash of Windows Phone 8X in the mix.

Rumored specifications, which are always subject to change, include:

  • Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
  • HTC Sense 5.0 UI
  • 4.7-inch 1080p 468ppi display
  • Quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 processor
  • 32GB internal memory
  • 2GB RAM
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera
  • No expandable storage card slot
  • 2,300 mAh battery
  • LTE/HSPA+ connectivity
  • Beats Audio enhancements
  • IR Port (universal remote control capabilities)
