First Image of Quad-Core HTC M7 Smartphone Surfaces

The first full image of the quad-core-powered, 4.7-inch M7 smartphone from Taiwanese handset manufacturer HTC has surfaced.

The image is a render from a "short animation clip instructing new owners on first-time SIM card installation," according to Unwired View. It comes from a trusted source who has access to an early version of the firmware.

HTC's M7 is expected to be unveiled during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. It's rumored to be powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal flash storage and a 2300mAH battery.

Among the other rumored features include a 13-megapixel rear camera and a front-facing 2-megapixel snapper. 4G connectivity support is said to be integrated, as well as Wi-Fi 802.11ac connection which is apparently three times faster than the current 802.11n WLAN wireless technology.

HTC recently blamed its 2012 performance on the lack of marketing; last year's Q4 was the worst quarter for the firm in 8 years. Either way, the company, which appears to be working on a slew of high-end handsets, has promised to offer better smartphones due to its licensing agreement with Apple.

    Looks very sleek, not sure the white suits it though.

    The large grids makes it clearly a successor to the current HTC models (One serie), but on the other hand, it looks so iPhone like... strange... It would look much better in dark colours ... indeed lassik !!!

    If the two similarly shaped grids are there because it can play sound in Stereo, that would be nice. I've read also somewhere else that this phone will feature an IR port to act as an universal remote controller. If it's powerfull enough to be usable in real life, it's a smart move from HTC IMHO :-)
    I liked those remote control softwares on the old Palm model, but as it was designed for data transmission, it lacked range (unless you added some accessories to the palm to boost the signal)
