Unwired View, via the Twitter user @evleaks, has gotten word that HTC is preparing two new handsets. The smartphones, allegedly codenamed the HTC M4 and G2, are expected to be released later this year, possibly during spring. According to the tipster, the device is believed to be not slated to make an appearance during the Mobile World Congress.
Along with the leaked codenames, several key specifications of the M4 and G2 have also been supposedly revealed.

This rear-facing camera is the same as the one found on the M7. The M4 will draw its power from a 1700mAh battery and features Android Jelly Bean as its operating system.
On the other hand, the HTC G2 is a smartphone targeted at the low-end market segment. Said device offers a single-core ARM Cortex processor running at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage. It also comes with a microSD card slot for memory expansion in case users need more storage space. The HTC G2 has, for its display, a 3.5-inch 480 x 320 (HVGA) screen.
