By - Source: Android Authority | B 8 comments

Flagship M7 smartphone, which is set for CES debut, among the handset.

A total of 35 smartphone codenames for devices manufactured by Taiwanese handset maker HTC have been leaked.

One phone included in the list is the rumored, high-end M7 device. It's purportedly the company's flagship smartphone for 2013. It seems there'll be a number of variants of the device, including different carrier versions, storage capacities, etc.

Other names included are the Deluxe, which is the global version of the 5-inch, 1080p J Butterfly smartphone and the HTC Primominiu, which is rumored to be the follow up to the One V.

HTC recently promised it would deliver better smartphones due to its 10-year licensing agreement with Apple. The full list of leaked codenames for the firm's smartphones, meanwhile, is as follows:

  • CP3DCG
  • CP3DTG 
  • CP3DUG 
  • DLXP_WL 
  • ERA_U 
  • JET 
  • K2_CL 
  • K2_WL

    Didn't HTC say that they were going to dismiss their usual tactic of pushing out a hundred SKUs in favor of their One series. That didn't last long... so much for the "Quality over Quantity" approach. Not saying that these aren't going to be great phones, it just a shame that they've fallen back into the muddled and spread-out approach again.

    I like having options as much as the next guy, but more often than not these dozens of different handsets have very little difference between them. Which makes picking one out of the batch a confusing endeavor.

    Could be worse and have little to no iphone users. I'd like to see two, maybe three versions, but I usually pick the "flag ship" for my carrier. I'm on Sprint...still using my Evo 3D (tethered to a Nexus 7). I'll be skipping the Evo 4g LTE (little to no LTE support in my area...coming soon, they say) and look at what comes next.

    Having a decent tablet has moved me from wanting a bad-ass phone. Just give me fast data service, a decent camera and screen....I'd be happy.

    And I wouldn't be surprised if none of them had a micro-sd slot either.

    I've worked for several HW manufacturers and the internally used code names for devices are far less interesting than specs, release dates and retail prices. Not sure why this is even news.

    This is just plain silly. 35 code names for new devices yet HTC cannot even update their current devices in a timely manner. I really like HTC's build quality and they have some of the best camera in their phones but putting out this many phones, if all make it to market, is only going to hurt them when patches and OS upgrades are due.

    If Apple is getting a cut of their smartphone sales I won't be buying another HTC product in the next 10 years.

    "35 HTC Smartphone Codenames Leak"
    When I read the headline to my wife, she asked what leaked out of the phones. Sometimes spelling is everything.
