It’s not often we learn of a possible concrete launch date for a phone that has yet to be unveiled, but the latest rumors regarding the HTC M7 seem to suggest that we have just that. According to a HTCSource, the OEM will look to launch the device starting March 8th through several retailers and carriers. We imagine this date pertains to Europe where most devices tend to launch first, with North American counterparts getting a swing at the plate a little bit later.
No information on who, exactly, would offer it could be had, but in the European market it’s often harder to find a big carrier that isn’t offering these flagship devices. America might be a little more tricky with possible rebranding and exclusivity talks, but earlier rumors suggest HTC aims to get this thing onto as many different carriers as possible.
Alongside all of that, we’re also told to expect multiple color options for the device. There’s the typical black armor that we’ve already seen in leaked images, but a white version could be in the works, as well. It’s not like HTC has never made a white device before so it’s not hard to believe that we could be seeing the HTC in this particular hue. Another edition of the phone could be introduced with aluminum, but the source of that specific details didn’t seem quite as sure.
HTC is holding an event in New York City February 19th and we fully expect the HTC M7 to be in attendance. We’ll be there live to cover it all so keep that date circled and keep it tuned to Phandroid to get all the latest regarding HTC’s 2013 bread winner.
