A press image of what appears to be HTC's latest flagship Android phone has been leaked on Twitter account @evleaks.

Previously rumoured to be called the M7, the leaked device is now being referred to as the HTC One. The evleaks Twitter account, which has a solid track record when it comes to publishing correct rumours, suggests that the handset will simply be branded "HTC One".

The leaked press image of the device shows a large device with what appears to be a strange button layout. The phone pictured has a back button on the left and a home button on the right, flanked by a rather large HTC logo. The absence of a multitasking button, a traditional feature of HTC Android phones, is striking.

The phone appears to have a two-tone colour scheme, with a black bezel surrounding the screen and a white piece on both the top and bottom edges. Both pieces could house a speaker — the company published an infographic last week suggesting it will "kick off a new sound and camera experience in 2013."

The bottom of the rumoured HTC One device does appear to look slightly angled. An angular design wouldn't be a first for the company, which used a similar design on its Legend Android phone back in 2010.

The HTC One (codenamed M7) is expected to feature a 4.7in full HD display and is likely to come with the latest version of the company's Sense user interface, version 5.0.

HTC will hold a press event in New York on Tuesday 19 February where it is expected to unveil the HTC One. The event is scheduled a few days before the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 event in Barcelona, Spain.

MWC is the world's largest mobile trade show and traditionally sees most major mobile manufacturers release new smartphones.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
