Few months back, HTC surprised the world with its flagship smartphone, HTC One, which received worldwide appreciation for its ultra-sleek looks, high resolution ultra-pixel camera and commanding list of specifications but the sky-high price was the point of concern for some. Moving ahead, HTC is reportedly working on the phone's mid-profiled cousin, reported to be known as M4, few specifications of which have been leaked online. It is supposed to be a lesser powered variant of HTC One with almost similar design and front facing speakers that works on HTC’s patent Beats audio technology. HTC M4 has been in rumors since February 2013, when we reported that HTC might come with M4 and G2 in addition to HTC M7.
Other than squeezing the display, HTC is planning to drop some features in M4, so it would not be wrong to call it a mini HTC One. Technically speaking, HTC M4 is expected to feature a 4.3-inch high-definition touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Escorted by 2GB RAM, this upcoming smartphone will pack an unknown dual-core processor unlike the quad-core CPU as seen in HTC One.
It is likely to have a 13MP gigantic rear snapper with full HD 1080p recording capabilities in addition to a secondary 1.6MP front-facing camera for quality video calls. Apparently, the storage front will be occupied by a whooping 16GB of built-in memory, which is more than enough considering the storage capacity of any mid-priced smartphone. HTC might integrate M4 with a 1,700mAh battery for an improved and long-lasting backup. HTC M4 is supposed to appear by the end of this quarter with Google’s Android v.4.2 Jelly Bean platform on-board.
Not only M4, HTC is also working on an entry-level smartphone, HTC G2. Supposed to pack a 3.5 inch wide HVGA display and Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS as platform, G2 will lie near HTC Desire C on the price point and specification front, both.
