There’s been a lot of talk and rumors about alleged upcoming HTC smartphone M7, but now there’s a video that shows us M7′s parts, and it’s the best evidence of the device so far. ETrade Supply allegedly acquired what it seems to be back cover of the M7 handset, and it looks like slightly smaller HTC droid Dna. Rumors are also touting that the devicehas 4.7-inch display, and similar back cover as is in One X, One X+ and DNA. If M7 has 4.7-inch 1080p display, it would be the most compact 1080p device, and that’s great news for those who don’t want 5-inch 1080p handset.
