The HTC One X was not exactly a success for the Taiwanese maker last year. However, the company expects to bounce back with the release of the One X successor this year at Mobile World Congress.
While the world is yet to get its glimpse of the One X successor, codenamed the M7, the specs of the handset are all but known. The M7 will sport a 4.7 (5?)-inch 1080p S-LCD3 display, a quad-core Krait processor, 2GB of RAM, 32/64GB of storage, and a non-removable battery.
Now, the folks over at HTC Source have managed to get some more information about the M7 thanks to their insider. The M7 will not be sporting a unibody aluminum shell, and will pack some design cues from the DROID DNA. It will also have a “very nice looking beveled edge”, along with a new version of HTC Sense that features a “simple and clean UI”. I am not sure what the “simple and clean UI” statement here means, but if we are looking at a near-stock Android like experience on the M7 with just some minor tweaks and additions from HTC, then I am going to be among the first few people to get my hands on the phone.
The only worrying part is that HTC is currently testing the handset with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on-board. However, considering that the phone’s launch is still more than 1.5 months away, HTC has ample time to release the phone with Android 4.2 on-board.
