Possible HTC M4 leaks, with Nokia Lumia 1030 and Sony Togari

A leaked shot purports to show a trio of unannounced handsets from HTC, Sony and Nokia.

This is an interesting one -- or should that be three? A trio of potential leaks have popped up on the Internet. On the right we have what is allegedly the HTC M4 -- a shrunken version of the HTC One, that we've heard about before. That blue phone behind it? That claims to be the Nokia Lumia 1030. And on the left is what could possibly be a 6.44-inch 1080p Sony Togari handset.

Why the uncertainty? The picture (two original images spliced together by Engadget) comes from someone calling himself Dahny El Perro in France, but his Twitter account is only a day old. And three leaked handsets at once seems too good to be true. Nevertheless, let's have a look.

While the M4 might look quite a lot like its bigger brother, the HTC One, it has shorter speaker grills, and the frame is all white around the phone. It's rumoured to be launching in just a couple of weeks. Just like the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, it's said to have a 4.3-inch screen (smaller than the One's 4.7-incher). Inside should be a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 16GB storage, and 1GB of RAM. A bigger version of the HTC One is also said to be on the cards.

What of the Nokia Lumia 1030 then? According to Windows Phone Central, Nokia doesn't have any plans for this kind of 'phablet' device, but if it is a knockoff, the faker's done his homework. On the screen is an extra tile column, which is rumoured to be a new feature that'll be part of the Windows Phone 8 GDR3 update.

And finally, the Sony Togari. It's massive, at 6.44 inches, but there's not really much else to say, seeing as the screen is off, and this is the first I've heard of it.

What do you reckon? Are these genuine, or bent as a nine bob note? Let me know in the comments, or on Facebook.
