Judging by the video, that something is either a new Ridley Scott directed Star Trek movie, or it is the launch of HTC's latest flagship Android smartphone. In the video the first thing you notice is an abundance of lens flairs and fleeting glimpses of what appears to be a blurry HTC M7.

We can see sleek, machined aluminum edges, and what appears to be a camera lens. One other feature that is instantly noticeable is the new phone seems to be dressed in white, something that has been very popular with rival Samsung's Galaxy S line of smartphones. I for one am very excited to see all of the new devices that will be making appearances this month as they all should hit the market around the time my upgrade becomes available.
