TAIWANESE PHONE MAKER HTC seemingly will preempt this year's Mobile World Congress, having revealed plans for a launch event in London on 19 February.

HTC sent out invitations to its upcoming event today, which will be taking place just days before the Barcelona mobile technology conference gets underway. Of course, the firm remained quiet on what we can expect to see at the event, but all signs are pointing towards its next generation flagship Android smartphone.

According to online speculation, HTC will be launching its M7 smartphone, the successor to last year's HTC One X.

Set to feature a design similar to that of its predecessor, the handset apparently will boast a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 4.7in HD 1080p touchscreen and a recent version of Google's mobile operating system, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

There's also talk of 2GB RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a high resolution front-facing camera, 32GB of internal storage and support for 4G LTE, suggesting that EE might be one of the first networks to offer the handset.

Of course, all this speculation could be well off the mark. However, The INQUIRER will be at the HTC event in London on 19 February, so be sure to check back for all of the details. µ
