Samsung and LG, two of the biggest players in the Android smartphone game, have announced their new flagships for the year at Mobile World Congress. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 look to be strong contenders, and both devices place a focus on camera performance
The Samsung Galaxy S7 camera has already been shown off, and it’s absolutely fantastic in low-light. Meanwhile, LG is adding a camera grip and physical camera controls as an accessory to the G5. HTC has two strong acts to follow when the company announces its next flagship, especially after the less-than-stellar camera quality of the One M9.
But HTC Chief Financial Officer Chialin Chang says that things will be different this time around:
We can confidently say that HTC will have a very, very compelling camera experience. We're making this comment after we've seen what's going on in the market.Chialin ChangHTC
Even after seeing what Samsung and LG are putting on the market, HTC seems confident that it cam provide a competing camera experience. And why shouldn’t they? HTC has a history of amazing cameras with the UltraPixel sensors. They produced fairly low-resolution shots, but the quality was pretty amazing.
Let’s hope that confidence really does result in a great product. We still have hope in HTC.
