New details regarding the upcoming HTC One successor from “a person with direct knowledge of the plans” claim that HTC’s new flagship Android phone will be equipped with “Qualcomm Inc.’s later Snapdragon processor.” The source goes on to suggest that the device will also feature a display that’s five inches or larger and an improved UltraPixel rear camera with dual sensors that will offer “better focus, depth of field and image quality.” That concept doesn’t seem too far-fetched following a previous rumor that claimed that the HTC M8 would have two separate camera lenses. It also fits in nicely with leaked images of the HTC M8 that show a second hole on the back of the phone, which could be the location of the second sensor and camera lens.
According to Bloomberg‘s source, the HTC M8 is scheduled for release at the end of March and will simply be named the HTC One with no additional letters, numbers or symbols. The late March release window mentioned in the report is likely referring to the timeframe in which the 2014 HTC One’s will be available at retail, not when the device will be unveiled by HTC.
Would you rather have a 2014 HTC One with a dual-sensor rear camera or a single camera sensor and a fingerprint scanner?
