More details on the HTC M7 emerge, 4.7-inch, 1080p and 4G

Last week, Pocket-lint revealed that the HTC M7 - a new flagship device from the Taiwanese phone manufacturer - was coming and, while others hinted that it could make its bow at CES in January, we suggested that it was more likely to be launched during Mobile World Congress in February.

It seems we were right, according to new details that have emerged about the codenamed Android smartphone. A new "previously reliable" source has told Unwired View that the HTC M7 will indeed be unveiled during MWC, and has listed a fair few specifications to boot.

We had previously heard that the new device would come with a 5-inch screen. The new reports claim that it's slightly smaller than that, at 4.7-inch. However, fresh details point to its being Full HD 1080p, so that would be a lot of pixels crammed into the SoLux display, making it rather tasty - 468PPI, in fact.

The previous leak claimed that it would be powered by a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core processor (Snapdragon S4 Pro). The latest skinny on that front adds 1.7GHz to the mix. It will also have 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, says the source.

The same source confirms that it will also, as previously thought, have a 13-megapixel camera on the rear - although, the 2-megapixel front-facing camera is new information. As are the facts that it will be 4G (in some regions - not known if that includes the UK), have a Beats amp and stereo speakers, and a 2300mAh battery.

Unwired View speculates that the HTC M7 will be on all four American networks - which hasn't happened since the Touch Pro 2. There's no word yet on UK availability or carriers.
