HTC (2498) is expected to unveil its latest smartphone, code-named M7, at a press conference in New York City next month. Earlier leaks have suggested that the device will be similar to the DROID DNA and will be equipped with a 4.7-inch full HD 1080p display, 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2,300 mAh battery. According to HTC Source, the company will release the M7 in Europe on March 8th and the handset will arrive in the U.S. shortly thereafter, giving HTC a few months lead against Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S IV smartphone.
