HTC readying 720p JB M4 and budget ICS G2 for spring

01 February, 2013

It seems that HTC could announce two other smartphones alongside the 1080p M7 this month. The HTC M7 is expected to go official on February 19 and the M4 and G2 could debut at the same press event.

The information comes courtesy of a few specs and release information by @evleaks and UnwiredView.

The two devices should start hitting retail stores this spring, while the M7 will reportedly start shipping before this month's end.

The HTC M4 will sport a 4.3" 720p display and run on a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor (probably of the Krait variety) and have 2 GB of RAM. The specs highlights continue with 16 GB of on-board storage, a 13 MP camera with F/2.0 lens, a 1.6 MP front-facing snapper and LTE support. The battery capacity is expected to be 1700 mAh.

The HTC M4 should be powered by Sense 5.0 on top of and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

As for the HTC G2 - it will be a budget ICS offering with a single-core 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. The smartphone will be built around a 3.5" display of HVGA resolution (320 x 480 pixels) and will offer microSD card slot and a 1400 mAh battery. These specs look similar to those of the rumored HTC Golf and it might not just be a coincidence.
