A supposed press photo of the much-anticipated HTC M7 has just shown up online under the moniker of the HTC One. The phone, which was last seen being held by HTC's Peter Chou, is supposed to be announced in just a few days. An industry insider by the name of @evleaks posted the photo of the phone a few moments ago.
As you can see, in this photo the HTC One has a nearly edge-to-edge display, a brushed aluminum casing and a long speaker and receiver on the top and bottom. HTC's UI looks scarily similar to the aesthetic of the LG Prada's interface. It also appears as if the home screen will contains a photo feed from the users' social networks.
But there's something fishy about the photo. As you can see, the bottom button layout puts the home button on the right, a back button on the left and HTC's logo in the dead center. What would be the point of doing that? Users wouldn't be able to do anything with an HTC logo. Previous leaks haven't shown this type of button layout.
While there are doubts about the legitimacy of the photo, evleaks has a stellar track record, being the first to leak photos of the HTC DNA, Nokia Lumia 820 and Huawei D2, Mate and W1.
This could be the real deal, folks. Even if it's not, previous leaks suggest the phone will look similar to the one in the picture above.
