Will HTC announce HTC M7 flagship smartphone at CES 2013?

There is little to go on but a tweet from the usually reliable @Football4PDA indicates that HTC may announce its next flagship device, known so far only its HTC M7 codename, at CES 2013. An earlier rumour suggested that the announcement would instead take place at MWC in late February.

The tweet also suggests that the HTC M7 could come with software buttons rather than hardware ones.

A launch by HTC with the rumoured Sprint and Verizon would give it a head start over other flagship devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S IV and the Sony Xperia Z.

Earlier reports have suggested that the HTC M7 will be powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and Google Android with HTC Sense 5. It will come with a 4.7-inch or 5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) SoLux display, LTE connectivity, and a rear 13MP camera.
