It's the HTC M7... kind of

It's the HTC M7... kind ofWe're primed and ready for HTC to launch its new Android flagship, currently named the M7, at Mobile World Congress next month, and we've now been given our first confirmed look at what HTC is cooking.

Well, we say that – the leaked image you're looking at is actually just a render, and probably won't be the final design HTC shows off at the big Barcelona unveiling anyway.

But we'll take what we can get at this stage, and thanks to the ever-busy evleaks we at least have some notion of what we can look forward to. The render is part of a short animation clip HTC has put together for first-time owners on how to insert the M7's SIM card.

So don't get too excited by what appears to be an edge-to-edge display, as the M7's 4.7in screen probably won't look quite that sweet up close and personal. That said, if it is indeed a full HD panel as is being suggested, it'll set new standards for pixel density. Not that the naked eye will be able to tell the difference, but why let that get in the way of a good story?

Factor in its 1.7GHz quad-core processor and a rumoured IR port that'll let you use it as a universal remote control, the HTC M7 should be quite the premium contender, and we're looking forward to laying eyes on it at MWC – complete with the invariable branding and more realistic screen edges, that is.

You can tell the front of a HTC by all the dust under the screen.

Looks like an iPhone 5.
