New leaks give glimpse at upcoming HTC device, Sense 5.0 (and the next EVO?)

We’ve already been discussing a little of what we might see from HTC in 2013, but we’re finally getting some leaked shots of the HTC M7, the upcoming flagship HTC device that many anticipate will be announced at Mobile World Congress in May. As previous rumors suggested, this device does seem to keep the three hardware keys found on the current HTC One devices and the HTC EVO 4G LTE, although the latest version of Sense (possibly named Sense 5.0) does look very different.

Namely, the clock widget is very different than what we’ve seen in past iterations of Sense, although app icons are also modified quite a bit. It also appears that HTC might be working on some large, rectangular widgets that will provide users with useful information (does anyone else think this looks a little like Windows Phone 8?). A few hardware revisions include the flash for the back the camera switching sides from previous versions, and the front-facing camera also appears to be on the right-hand side of the phone.

We don’t know a whole lot about the device at this point, including whether or not Sprint’s version will be branded with the EVO or One name. Stay tuned for more, but in the meantime, does this look like something you might buy?
