HTC M4 and HTC G2 Leak Ahead of HTC Event and MWC
Last week HTC was caught in the act of promoting and even using their anticipated M7 flagship smartphone. While the world gears up for the company’s announcement on the 19th, the success of 2012, and the excitement of moving forward allowed anyone who’s interested to get a sneak peak at a white M7 as well as HTC’s own enthusiasm surrounding the their future. As the video of HTC’s year end party started to surface, so did a few other juicy details of another M series device as well as a revival of sorts to the legacy packed G2 branding. Details on two new HTC devices have surfaced to the top of the rumor mill, the HTC M4, and HTC G2.
Last Friday brought us an odd video out of HTC’s end of year party and shortly after the world was done scratching their heads; a few new HTC smart phones hit the rumor mill. The leaky details on the two new smart phones come from the rather reliable @evleaks. The source states that both the HTC M4 and HTC G2 are should be launched sometime during the spring and are most likely not to make their debut at the upcoming event or even at MWC. The HTC m4 is one of the two leaky handsets and is set to be the little brother to the M7. The M4 is said to run with a 4.3 inch 720p HD touch screen that will give its end users full control over Android version 4.2 aka Jelly Bean. Internally she is said to run with a 1.2 GHz dual core Snapdragon SoC processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. Around back of the M4 should sit a 13 mega pixel camera with an f/2.0 aperture that can shoot video in full 1080p HD. Additional details give it a 1.6 mega pixel front facing shooter, as well as a 1700 mAh battery. The source also claims the M4 should run with HTC’s latest Sense 5.0 and have LTE capabilities. The new G2, on the other hand seems to have hit rock bottom! Well, ok not that bad, but their always needs to be an entry level offering right! The G2 moniker is said to have no ties to the previous models released under the same name. This new G2 doesn’t really live up anyway. According to the leaks the new G2 will start with a 3.5 inch HVGA touch screen that will give its end users full touchy control over Android version 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich. Internally she’s said to come packing a 1 GHz ARM Cortex processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and expandable microSD memory options. Rounding out the details this new G2 should run with a 1400 mAh battery and a 5 mega pixel camera. And the buck unfortunately stops there.
The HTC M4 and G2 are rumored to be announced after both the companies’ invitation only event as well as MWC. If I were a guessing man, I’d say the M4 during the event, and the G2 at MWC, but what do I know!
