In less than a week, HTC is expected to announce the HTC M7, the Taiwanese company’s flagship device of 2013. So far there have only been rumors regarding its specs and nothing has been officially confirmed yet, but check back with us on the 19th of February for the full details. In any case until then, HTC has begun to tease us with videos and photos which we can only assume are related to the phone’s launch, and in the latest photo, HTC has upload a picture of a piece of metal with the company’s logo embossed on it. They also tweeted a message about how all 75% of the elements on the periodic table are metals, followed by a link to the elemental song on YouTube. HTC has favored the use of aluminum in the past for its smartphone offerings, so it is clear that the HTC M7 will feature some sort of metal casing. However with all the hype surrounding its metal postings, could HTC be using a different type of metal for its HTC M7 smartphone? We can’t say for sure, but we are definitely excited! What do you guys think?
