HTC M4 could have Metal-Alloy body like the ONE


HTC is rumored to be preparing to release a mid-range variant of its critically acclaimed One smartphone. Earlier reports claimed that the device, code named M4, was similar to the HTC First without the integration of Facebook Home, however this my not be the case. According to Digitimes, the M4 will be equipped with a “metal-alloy chassis” that is being supplied by Catcher Technology. The latest rumors suggest that the mid-range smartphone will feature a 4.3-inch 720p HD display, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor and an “Ultrapixel” rear camera. The device may also include 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM and Sense 5 and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

According to this report, HTC could start shipping the M4 this June, and have 700,000 units out the door before the quarter’s over. That would be a big push in not much time, but if the M4 really is a miniaturized version of the One, as it’s being made out to be, we can understand how it could see a significant demand.
