Firstly, the HTC M7 design apparently is going to be taking some hints from the design of the Droid DNA, HTC’s most current Verizon smartphone, and that apparently means an all-black design with a beveled edge. Evidently, the HTC M7 could also come with the same design materials as the Droid DNA instead of an aluminum design that has been rumored in the past.
It appears that the device may not feature on-screen buttons as was previously rumored and it looks like no visible microSD card slot was visible meaning the device will likely be stuck on 32GB of storage.
The HTC M7 is also rumored to have a 4.7-inch 1080 x 1920 display with 468 pixels-per-inch, which is a higher PPI than even the Droid DNA, and a quad-core processor, possibly 1.7GHz and thought to be made by Qualcomm.
It’s also apparently being tested with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, which is not Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the latest from Google. However, that could apparently change by the time the phone hits shelves.
The HTC M7 is also rumored to be sporting a new version of HTC Sense, likely Sense 5, that is described as both “simple and clean.”
