With the design of chamfered edges, top and bottom screen “borders,” and a black anodized frame, the black HTChandset, which is codenamed “M7” and expected to launch in Europe and North America on Feb. 19, rumored looks like an iPhone 5.
First spotted by Unwired View, the leaked image yields no additional clues as to the design of the HTC device. It appears to be an American press shot, as opposed to the silver version’s, which displayed London as the city.
Other rumors have pegged the M7 as being HTC’s successor to the HTC One. Pricing is expected to be in line with current models, starting at $200 for the 32GB version and moving to $300 for the 64GB iteration.
As for the device’s internal hardware, speculation points to a 4.7-inch full HD display and Qualcomm’s 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor.
