The HTC M7, the high-end flagship that HTC will likely be launching at two launch events on February 19th, has emerged again today with a reliable source claiming that the device will not only be called HTC One when it hit shelves but that it will also come sporting a 4.7-inch display, two pieces of information that had been rumored before.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a number of rumors crop up about HTC’s rumored 2013 flagship, a device that will likely be replacing the HTC One X and the HTC One X+ on shelves. That device, for quite some time, has been known as the HTC M7, and rumors suggest that it will have some high end specifications in an effort to position itself against the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.
And as we move closer to its rumored February 19th launch, we’re hearing quite a bit of murmuring about the device and today, we’ve seen some credible information about the device’s retail name and screen.
Previous rumors have suggested that the HTC M7 will actually be called the HTC One and that it will have a 4.7-inch display. Italian leakster flapic, who was dead on with HTC’s February 19th launch date, is claiming that both of those are true. Neither is surprising, especially the screen size since it has been rumored all along, but it’s nice to see that the pieces are coming together.
The display is also supposed to be full HD 1080p with a pixel-per-inch count that extends into the 400+ range. As for the HTC One name, it’s unclear just how the HTC One will play into HTC’s previous HTC One Series but we imagine that there will be some kind of connection.

The device is rumored for an early March release in Europe and American carriers are expected to get the device after their European brethren.
