HTC CEO Brandishes White M7, Starts “HTC M7!” Chant!
Ever woken up the day after a killer party and everyone but you knows you messed up last night? HTC CEO Peter Chou might be that guy when he wakes up, unless he intentionally showed off the new HTC M7 smartphone just a few days before the official launch.
The cordial and savvy CEO was seen taking photos of a crowd during a news broadcast, and though we don’t see much detail of the white version of the phone, we’re happy to see it. The HTC M7 is expected to come in both black and white at launch, and may be released in early March according to the latest rumours.
[quote]”This event today is a great opportunity for testing [the camera],” Chou, as translated by Engadget, said. “I was still testing it just now.”[/quote]
Aside from the fact that he was so juiced he had gave the world its first real look at the HTC M7, Chou’s excitement came pouring out as he led the room in spirited chants of “HTC” and “M7.”
The device appears to be longer and narrower than the popular One X, with a centred camera module and a barely-perceptible HTC logo on the back.
As for the phone itself, rumors say this phone will have a 4.7-inch 1080p display with a 1.7Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro and 2GB of RAM. Add in a 13MP camera in the back and a 2.1MP wide frame camera in the front and you’ve got yourself a pretty solid phone. If HTC is, in fact, about to release a beefier HTC Butterfly that is a little easier for most people to actually hold and use with one hand, the M7 will be a force to be reckoned with this spring.
