According to industry sources, HTC is planning to release a new flagship, quad-core powered smartphone during the first quarter of 2013.
Despite the powerful Droid DNA launching a few weeks ago, the Taiwanese manufacturer is purportedly working with its suppliers for a new handset in the form the HTC M7.
Various sources have suggested HTC is ensuring that enough semiconductors and casings can be produced in order to manufacture between 4 million and 5 million units of the phone during the opening stages of 2013.
The HTC M7 is said to feature a 5-inch HD display, a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core processor and a 13 megapixel camera.
Samsung's rumored, all-but-confirmed Galaxy S4 is also reportedly set to boast similar technical specifications, with a launch scheduled for Q1, 2013.

Bad moves HTC, should make your next flagship as One X2. Still doesnt learn from mistake.Reply
Samsung had better hurry up with that s4 or risk being bested by the competition.Reply
Don't forget non removeable battery, 16GB storage and no micro-sd slot.Reply
Do miracles happen?
Seems 5" inch is the new 4". With the Note 2 coming in now at 5.4" is anyone going to push the boundary and make a 6" phone?Reply

Yay. More cores that won't get used and instead serve to drain the battery faster.Reply
