HTC's M7 smartphone (SIM free) is reported to be priced, a whopping 649.99 Euros (more than ₹45,000) and is expected to hit stores on March 8.

A few days ago, a German website,, showed off HTC's exclusive teaser poster tagged "Alive Soon". The poster depicts a graphic image of a human heart embedded in an electronic circuit board. The bizarre poster has successfully gained the attention of the online media.

Lately, HTC is trying hard to arrest its slide in the global smartphone market. According to a recent report of 2012(Q4) global smartphone market, HTC no longer features in the list of top five smartphone makers. Apart from table toppers Samsung and Apple, the other three spots are facing stiff competition between Nokia, BlackBerry, Sony, LG and HTC. With the emergence of three Chinese firms Lenovo, ZTE and Huawei, the fight for market share has now become fiercer.  

HTC in its bid to garner more attention to its products is following the footsteps of major firms like Apple, Microsoft and Samsung to host its own product launch events.

HTC's London event is scheduled to start around 3:00 pm on Feb 19, almost a week ahead of the international mobile convention MWC (Mobile World Convention) 2013 which is set to kick-off in Barcelona.
