HTC to develop its own processorsReuters

Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC will reportedly launch its second flagship HD smartphone M7 around the third week of February.

Citing a reliable source, Italian blogger Flavio claims that HTC will be hosting a launch event for its flagship M7 smartphone on Feb 19 in London, a few days before the international mobile convention MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona, Spain.

"Let's say that with many years of work in the field I have my connections.", said Flavio without revealing his source..

Speculations of HTC M7's specs and the possible launch date have been floating around for a quite some time now. The smartphone is rumoured to feature a 4.7-inch Full HD display. With 468 ppi (pixel per inches), HTC M7's display is pegged to have 40 percent higher screen resolutions than that of Apple's iPhone 5.

Expected Specifications of HTC M7 Includes:

Model HTC M7(code named)
Display 4.7-inch Full HD Screen,1080p SoLux technology, 468 ppi

(pixels per inch)

OS Android Jelly Bean
Processor 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon
Internal memory 2GB RAM
Storage capacity 32GB
Main camera 13.0-megapixel,1080p HD videorecording
Front facing camera 2.0-megapixel,1080p HD videorecording
Audio Beats amplifier, stereo speakers
Battery 2300mAh
WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac

The HTC smartphone's camera is said to come with an image-enhancing technology, 'Cinesensor', which gives crisp image quality, HD video recording and super slow-motion video playback.

Many technology websites have opined that companies' preference to host their own event to launch flagship devices makes sense as they can get individual media coverage. If the device is unveiled in an open event like CES (Consumer Electronics Show) or MWC (Mobile World Congress), there are chances that their products may get over-shadowed by other products at the convention.

HTC seems to be following the footsteps of big organizations like Apple, Samsung and Microsoft which are known to host their own events to launch their flagship devices.
