[Exclusive] This May Actually Be The HTC M7 With Sense 5.0

You know what we like here at Android Police? Solid information. Earlier today, we reported on an alleged render of the HTC M7 that looked a little 'close-but-not-quite'. For starters, that image is not exactly the M7. But a helpful tipster decided to help us clarify some things today, by providing real images of something that more than likely is the M7.

We've been seeing a flurry of photos recently and this to be the most legitimate one yet. This is also obviously a photograph of a real piece of hardware, not a render. This photo corroborates a lot of the information that PocketNow's tipster reported that we mentioned in our last article - notably, that the home and multitasking buttons have been swapped.

There Is A Significant Chance This Is Not A Real Render Of The HTC M7

Ah, after CES we were beginning to wonder when we'd get our next flurry of conflicting rumors. Today's comes in the form of what is being called an official render of the HTC M7. Trouble is, it's not. For starters, PocketNow claims that they're not made by anyone within the company, however according to someone who 'has access' to a photo of the handset, the front looks about right. Allow me to reiterate that point: the claim here is someone has allegedly seen an alleged photo that allegedly looks similar to this image, but only the front half:

HTC-M7PL

Of course, this render has some issues just on the face of it as well.

[Weekend Poll And News Roundup] When Are You Planning On Making Your Next Android Phone Purchase?

Buying a smartphone is a lot like telling a joke - timing is everything. Purchasing a Galaxy S III a few months ago was probably fine and dandy, but today, everybody sort of knows we're closing in on the next round of product announcements for 2013.

When do I buy? Which announcement do I wait for? Do I buy as soon as my contract expires, or sit on my upgrade until something new comes along? It's easy to get paralyzed into a sort of gadget anxiety - where you never commit to buying anything, because who knows what could be coming next.

[New Game] Terry Cavanagh's Super Hexagon Brings Its Rhythmic, Addictive Gameplay To Android

Terry Cavanagh, the mind behind VVVVVV and Don't Look Back, brought Super Hexagon – a game already lauded among iOS, Mac, and Windows users – to Android, with its minimalistic, addictive gameplay intact.

The game, for those who don't know, is about as minimal as it gets – you control a small triangle on the outside of a central hexagon. In sync with a groovy beat, walls will quickly flood in. Your job is to avoid those walls for as long as possible. The game's trailer demonstrates the concept perfectly:

For added difficulty, the triangle is controlled not with gestures, but by tapping and holding.

HTC Holiday (Vivid/Raider/Velocity) Added To CyanogenMod Roster With First Official CM10 Weekly

After more than a month of unofficial CyanogenMod builds, the HTC Holiday (also known as the Vivid, Raider, or Velocity) has joined the ranks of devices with official CM support, receiving its first weekly CM10 build earlier today. It's not yet clear when or if the Holiday's build cycle will transition to a nightly schedule.

At the time of writing, the build's known issues involve Bluetooth Audio skipping, hardware video playback, tethering, and the inability to record video in 1080p. Otherwise, the Holiday's first weekly looks like daily driver material.
