HTC rumoured to be launching M7 flagship phone

Details are scarce right now, but rumours are pointing to the launch of a new flagship phone from HTC, one that's likely to go head-on with the Samsung Galaxy S IV. Yes, another one. Early 2013 is already looking like a busy time for big-name launches.

This one is said to be called the HTC M7, and sounds not a million miles from the HTC Deluxe DLX (pictured here), a phone still with an outside chance of a UK launch, despite HTC's own Facebook team denying such a thing.

If the M7 is going to launch, it probably makes sense for a non-launch of the Deluxe DLX. Like the DLX, the M7 has a 5-inch HD display, along with a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core processor. But it also offers a mighty 13-megapixel camera and a uni-body aluminium shell.

HTC is said to be working with semiconductor and casing suppliers in an effort to secure enough components to manufacture 4 to 5 million units of the HTC M7 in the first quarter of 2013, with the idea of launching just ahead of the Galaxy S IV in an attempt to boost market share and sales for that first quarter.

HTC phones have a habit of leaking well ahead of launch, so if the M7 is poised for an early debut, we would expect snaps of that handset to appear online perhaps before the year is out. Yes, we're already hunting some down.
