Another day, another All New HTC One leak: post-capture focusing, pricing, and tap-to-wake seemingly confirmed

Another day, another All New HTC One leak: post-capture focusing, pricing, and tap-to-wake seemingly confirmed
We've received numerous pieces of information about HTC's upcoming flagship, the All New HTC One, over the past few days, and today is no different. The latest leak comes from Australia, where the greatly-anticipated smartphone has been spotted in a local carrier's brochure.

The brochure explains that the Duo Camera feature will enable users to choose the focus point after they've taken the shot, add various 3D effects, and soften the background of the image. According to the newly-surfaced infromation, the HTC phone will also include a tap-to-wake feature in Sense 6.0, similar to LG's KnockOn - simply double tap on the screen to wake the phone.

The carrier has priced the All New HTC one at AUD 840 off contract – this translates to $759 or EUR 547.

To see all information about the new HTC One, check out our rumor round-up story.

Judging on your recent posts @emadshiny, you my friend is a hater towards HTC, u some how disappear.....but when an article about HTC is posted, you climb out of your rock and start bashing. Keep your comments to yourself or justface the fact that HTC is the best along with LG and sony

I hate users like this.. We have the same handful of trolls pop up on every single WP/Lumia related article with nothing but negative comments.. Although you never see them on any other article..
..............
Don't forget to add Nokia to that list.. Nokia, or Lumia devices, should be high on your list..

The lumia models are cool, with their awesome camera quality but the os is not my cup of tea and Nokia has bad reputation growing in it self

Your comment shows who is a troll here.
Your comment has nothing to do with this article.
And I hate people like you who just try to get those thumbs up by supporting those who bash others.

Just a general question, not directed @emadshiny, does getting "thumbs up" to any given comment do anything, or is it just like an ego thing?

You know what?
You're not in a position to judge peoples personality and their ideas my friend.
I said and will say whatever I want about whatever I like. So its better for you to keep your judgments to yourself.
Your last sentence can be nominated as the joke of the year.

Still no information about the megapixel count? I know its dual camera and that might be 13mp but still not sure.

It is rumored that the bigger lens has a 5 or 4 mpand the top one has a 2 mp lens. But they said it will out do 13 mp interms of resolution and depth of view even focusing is much more advanced. Fingers crossed HTC this has to be your year, Sammy already knows that the s5 is going to have disappointing sales and that's your jab HTC take it.

19. Leonis (Posts: 334; Member since: 08 Jan 2014)


finger crossed it will be at least 10. Anything more than that is pretty useless. I never thought of having 2 cameras with two different megapixel count. But it does make sense. If front facing cameras can have 2mp then that top could easily have 4mp.

Come on HTC make this phone with an awesome camera please. No gimmck like HTC One. The camera was the only thing missing for me.

I just hope it's not an Ultrapixel camera with our hot friend Zoe and her trippy psychedelic purple haze effects. If so, the forums are going to be busy this year.

"enable users to choose the focus point after they've taken the shot"
Is this the same feature shown in the S5. Where there is an option in the camera where you can focus the front image and blur the background. Vice-Versa. Well at least it sounds like the same thing to me

We haven't even seen reviews on it or a hands on. Plus the s5. Seemed to handle this feature pretty darn well. So please refrain From biased opinions.

But the GS5 has to take multiple pictures at different focus points to do it, which takes more time. HTC is making both the cameras take one shot at the same time, but with different focus points. This also takes out any variable that might happen between the shots that the GS5 takes, like what if you happened to shake the device as you took the shot? You would get 2 slightly different pictures that would cause some flaws in the feature, and they would both be blurry since the GS5 doesn't have OIS. Since the new One has OIS and has 2 cameras that will fire at the same time, that problem would be eliminated.

It's a useless enough feature and if adding that ugly second camera and making the phone 146mm tall is how you do it better then I am glad no one else is "doing it better"

15. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3561; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)


If it is then it's a pretty cool feature!! With Lumia devices you can do what you said, and choose to focus all depths.. Which is very nice... I'm sure HTC will do this as well.

10. HTCOE (Posts: 522; Member since: 20 Nov 2011)


leaks are bad... but it's to change the aperature and depth of field after a photo is taken... the double tap is true. and it's not a 4UltraPixel at all it's a combined total which average the camera to 10.

I'm hoping that putting some faith in what you have said about the M8 won't bite me in the a$&. While I sincerely doubt htc would make the same mistake in the camera department, there's always that chance.
I personally was fine with the camera, but obviously I'm not the majority.

telstra is known to mark up their outright prices (because they're the top carrier down under and they think they can charge a crap load) so take about $100-200 off and you have a proper unlocked handset price for what we normally pay. a galaxy note 3 is about $900-1000 outright from telstra when its $850 at a local store like jbhifi.

I think htc has leaked the device on purpose. I'm believing it's impossible for all these leaks to come out left and right accidentally

posted on 11 Mar 2014, 08:21 2

17. Leonis (Posts: 334; Member since: 08 Jan 2014)


Of course some leaks may be intentional like they plant the device on a 13 year old kid.... of course he will leak it. LG is known for doing this because they have to build up the hype.

One feature I'm glad people are copying is knock on rofl, makes transitioning from the G2 much more doable. I never use the power button

Knock on feature? I thought that is Lg signature design cant copy that but that is useful feature something htc missing on the One beside the camera. Wake up the phone you need to reach all the way to the top..... ....

gsmarena seem to think the camera specs are the same as the previous model. If that is the case, HTC are even dumber than I thought.

Lol and apparently the dimensions are 146 x 70.9 x 9.35. Lol

I had absolutely no doubt in my mind that HTC would make the worst flagship out of all the major players in Android but even I wasn't expecting that level of failure. ROFL.

Ok so you couldn't even name ONE. You just say S5 will be better and thats it... no argument at all. Well done because you know there isn't a single thing that will blow HTC One 2 out of the water.

That's what is says on their marketing sheet....I would hope the HTC marketing head would show us more if it in fact did more. So either that's all it does or HTC sucks. Either way, HTC sucks, it is just a matter of which department. The marketing department or the engineering department. My money is on the engineering department.
