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]
