HTC M7 smiles for the camera in leaked render

Last week, the rumored HTC M7 made another splash by showing up in a leaked render. Sadly, it seems the phone made a splash for all the wrong reasons, as the render didn't look very good and set off many fan complaints. Today we've got a new leaked render to show you, this one looking a lot more like the phones we're used to seeing from HTC.

Originally published by Pocketnow, it's important to remember that this apparently isn't an official HTC render, although it does look like an image the company would want to use in its promotional materials. However, Pocketnow has spoken to a few folks who are allegedly close to the M7 project, and they've confirmed that the front is quite similar to the device that's in development. If that's true, then expect the home button to be on the far right instead of in the middle – something we imagine will cause a lot of headaches for many longtime Android users.

If these sources are to be believed, then we can expect the front of the HTC M7 to look mostly the same as it does in the render, while the back could look completely different since the one in the image is just the artist's interpretation. We're still waiting for HTC to unveil the M7, an announcement some of us were expecting at CES 2013. Alas, such a reveal never happened during the show, so now we're hoping that HTC shows up to MWC 2013 next month with the M7 in tow.

Supposedly, the M7 comes equipped with a 4.7-inch 1080p display, a 13MP snapper, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, and 2GB of RAM. Should those rumored specs turn out to be accurate, then HTC will be looking to continue the high-end success of the DROID DNA with this new device. It's definitely an exciting time to be an HTC fan, so keep your fingers crossed and hope for a timely reveal!
