HTC loyalists in the US will get their dose of the next HTC flagship from three of the nation’s largest carriers—AT&T, Verizon and Sprint.
The HTC M7 will stake its claim on being HTC’s latest flagship later this quarter, which will most likely be during Mobile World Congress or right after MWC. Despite its struggle this past year, HTC is confident that it can retain and regain its user-base in 2013, and with the rumored specs being what they are, the M7 is definitely worthy of some attention.

Although the specs are unofficial, the rumors have settled on the M7 sporting a 4.7-inch 1920x1080p screen, a quad-core Qualcomm processor, 32GB of internal ROM, 2GB of RAM, a hefty 13MP rear camera, and a decent 2MP front camera. All this HTC M7 goodness will run under Android Jelly Bean along with HTC’s in-house Sense 5, which promises to deliver on simplicity and overall responsiveness. It is worth noting that the M7 may not come with a microSD slot, but that doesn’t mean HTC will definitely leave out expandability in its next flagship, as there are more than one memory card standards.
All three of the three major carriers mentioned above have 4G networks, meaning the US M7’s will have 4G capability. T-Mobile, the 4th largest carrier, wasn’t on the list of rumored M7 carriers, but that doesn't mean it won’t end up snatching the device somewhere down the line.
