Another week – another official all new HTC One teaser video directly from HTC. The third installment of HTC’s “Technical Translations” series gives us the lowdown on the Ultrapixel camera sensor with its 2.0 micrometer pixels that HTC crammed inside the 2013 HTC One. Once the technical mumbo jumbo is translated into layman’s terms, the all new HTC One in all its pixelated glory is shown off as improvements to the Ultrapixel camera are touted.
Naturally, HTC bleeped out anything that would confirm any of the leaked specs, but we were able to catch a few subtle slips which tell us that the guy wearing a lab coat highlights feature for both the front and rear-facing cameras. The all new HTC One is expected to have a 5-megapixel, f/1.8, back-side-illuminated front-facing camera (identical to what’s on the HTC Desire 816) and dual-sensor camera on the back for better low-light images, optical zoom or even depth perception which would allow refocusing after an images is captured.
It’s nice to know that there’s at least one major player in the Android space that’s thinking of innovative ways to improve the imaging experience rather than just cramming more megapixels into a smaller space.
