HTC M4 leaked, suggests flagship style with middleweight specs

Remember the M4? We’ve seen glances of a spec sheet, but now we get to see how it’s going to look. Courtesy of @evleaks, we can now tell it’s looking good.HTC M4 leaked

After the critically-acclaimed One, the company looks to be sharing its style tips around — at a glance the M4 appears almost identical to the HTC flagship, although the camera flash has been relocated to the center of the device and there’s a few less micro-drilled speaker holes. Running over the leaked specs, you can expect a smaller 4.3-inch screen at 720p resolution and possibly a cheaper build to the unibody beauty that leads HTC’s smartphone family.

There’s likely to be a dual-core processor, LTE-capable radio and 16GB of storage too. There’s better news, with the UltraPixel-packing 4-megapixel camera sensor rumored to make its way into the middleweight phone, although initial leaks pointed to a 13-megapixel sensor.

HTC posts factory image for HTC One Developer Edition

For those folks who use a Mac or Linux computer, the zip file and fastboot makes it easy to go back without building a VM with Windows to do so.  Continue reading
