Is This HTC's New Flagship Phone?

According to Evleaks, on UnwiredView, this is a render from a start-up video for the much-rumoured new HTC M7. Rumours suggest that the flagship phone will pack a 4.7-inch 1080p screen, along with a 1.7GHz quad-core chip backed by 2GB of RAM and LTE.

According to the latest leaks, the M7 will also bring back the humble IR port, allowing the phone to act like a learning remote. We're expecting to see the phone in the flesh come the Mobile World Conference next month, and HTC presumably hopes that it will turn the company's declining fortunes around.

The lack of branding and distinct screen borders suggest that this isn't exactly the design HTC is expected to debut at MWC, but it does, perhaps, give an indication of what's to come. It looks good — and, um, an awful lot like the iPhone 5. If the leak's accurate, HTC could have something big on its hands. [UnwiredView]

    I bet the Apple legal department is excited over this.

      Apple can go and suck it.

      It doesn't have a button on the bottom. It therfore does not resemble an iPhone at all. Infact it's just another rectangular device with rounded corners.

        No, it doesn't have a button on the bottom, presumably it has three. But that's not the point, the point is, this unnamed device is a rounded rectangle shape, it has a two tone design on the back, with colour intervals placed at the same locations as on an iPhone 5. And unlike, say the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which is a huge rippoff of the iPad, people that aren't technology-literate may actually get this confused with the iPhone 5.

    Didn't apple and htc have a deal together to not sue each other? The one that had samsung curious.

    Thin phones with no borders? How are we supposed to hold these things?? :P

    this looks 100% identical to the 'this is the next iPhone' images before the release of the iPhone 5.

    Do we know if HTC are going to completely abandon Windows Phone 8 with this model, or keep giving it lip service?
