The HTC One, which has long been dubbed the HTC M7, has appeared in yet another leaked render. The device looks identical to a render that leaked back in January — and indeed to Apple’s iPhone 5 — only this time it looks to be running HTC’s next-generation Sense 5 user interface.
I wrote about the last render in January, and I noted then how much it looked like the iPhone 5. In fact, I thought it was so similar that I was almost certain it wouldn’t be HTC’s final design. It looks like the company has just turned the Apple’s device over, replaced the aluminum with a display and poked some holes for its speakers and camera.
But according to this image, obtained by @evleaks, I could be wrong.
The first time it leaked it was taken from an official HTC ROM, so there was no doubting its authenticity. In this one, it’s also running the Sense 5 UI that was leaked on another device — also though to be the HTC One/M7 — back in January. What’s more, the image comes from @evleaks, which has proven to be very reliable in the past.
The other interesting thing to note is the date on the device’s display. February 19 is the day HTC is expected to announce the One at a press event in London, and smartphone vendors often put product launch dates on their press images. We should find out then whether or not this image is genuine.
The HTC One is expected to offer a 4.7-inch 1080p display, a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. It’s also looks to be the first handset with HTC’s Sense 5 UI onboard, which appears to have undergone a significant overhaul.
