HTC, the company behind famed One X+ smartphone, is dishing every opportunity to be on limelight with multiple handsets release planned for this year. Already, the tech arena is abuzz with latest rumors of HTC M7 - a mysterious 4.7-inch 1080p HD handset - slated to release prior to MWC 2013 conference in a separate event on February 20.
With the former handset already grabbed a piece of fame before its launch, now another spicy rumor sparks existence of HTC M4 and HTC G2, to be launched later this year.
HTC M4 and HTC G2 - What To Expect?
The Taiwanese-based handset maker is hiding two breathtaking handsets under its sleeve. The former handset - HTC M4 is fairly powerful, considering it has a dual-core processor under the hood.
While, the soon-to-be-launched - M7 is a beast all together with a quad-core processor and eye catching 1080pHD display, but the specification mentioned by Unwiredview.com, signals HTC M4 will also be a decent offering equipped with pretty 4.3-inch 720p HD display, 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean , 2GB of RAM, 4G LTE, 16GB of internal memory and astonishing 13-mega pixels rear-view camera. Incidentally, HTC M7, too will flaunt a 13-mega pixel shooter at the back.
On the other hand, another handset that the company is hiding is a low-end beauty in the form of HTC G2. A fairly modest handset with no frills attached to it. Sporting a 1GHz processor , a 3.5-inch HVGA display , 512MB of RAM , a 5-mega pixel shooter on the back , and a mere 4GB of internal storage. The device will be running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
Survival In The Market?
Certainly these stupendous handsets will strengthen the dwindling position of struggling Taiwanese smartphone maker to some extent. Many analysts believe that the company should launch a flagship handset, similar, on the lines of Samsung Galaxy S III, to strengthen its lost glory.
Of lately, the handset maker has launched -- HTC Butterfly, a premium handset with whooping 5-inch 1080p HD display. But, the price tag, in the Indian terms is extremely frightening. Priced at Rs. 45,900, it is the most expensive Android handset available in cost centric market like India.
Until 2011, HTC enjoyed the supremacy of being a novel, and most trusted smartphone maker. But, the coming of Samsung on the radar, and rise of Apple iPhone panicked the entire smartphone market. HTC , is not only a struggling player, similarly , Nokia and BlackBerry , too, struggling with their tarnished image.
