All New HTC One surfaces once again: 16MP combined resolution for dual cameras revealed

All New HTC One surfaces once again: 16MP combined resolution for dual cameras revealed
The All New HTC One will get officially unveiled in less than a week, on March 25th, but leaks obviously just won’t stop until then. The latest one comes from TENAA, China’s certification agency (similar to the FCC in the United States), and it shows us the China Mobile version of the HTC One with all its specific 4G LTE bands.

What’s most interesting, though, is the listed combined resolution of the two rear cameras - 16 megapixels. We have seen leaked images of the new HTC One with two cameras on its back, and HTC is likely to have found a way to combine information from the two cameras for this 16-megapixel resolution. Chances are, that none of the cameras alone has a resolution of 16-megapixels, though. We are yet to see how this pans out in the real device, and how the dual rear cameras of the new HTC One will work together, but it’s the first time we hear about a combined image resolution of 16MP on the One.

Another interesting tid-bit is a mention of an ‘UltraPixel’ front-facing camera on the new HTC flagship. UltraPixel is the marketing name of the camera on the original HTC One, and it's a term applying to the larger than usual pixel size of the sensor. An UltraPixel camera could mean a huge improvement in the front-facing shots of the new handset, and hence a lot more selfies flooding the web.

The rest of the information that has surfaced over at TENAA is not all that surprising: the One is said to have a 5-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 system chip, 2GB of RAM, and the design is also pictured looking nearly identical to that of the original One (all things that we've already heard multiple times).

Finally, the listing also reveals that the new HTC One will have a version in red, in addition to the grey, silver and gold models that we already know about. Take a look at the images of the China Mobile version of the All New HTC One below, and tell us what you think about that 16-megapixel combined resolution.

50+ million sold worldwide and you call that a failure? Don't let Samsung's success get that much into you, you ll end up with hemorrhoids son. And the HTC was a great phone, the average camera wasn't the reason it didn't sell well, it was the problems and delays it had with the production.

50 Million sold?! Never believe Samsung at all since other tech sites mentioned that it's a shipment not sold out! Since IPhone 5s came out end of the last year S4 and Note 3 sales burn plus HTC start doing well since end of the 2013. I'm in mobiles business since long time

"I'm in mobile business sing long time", this joke my made day, and ok from now and on I won't take Samsung, Stock Market, major gadget sites, and carrier's words for how much a phone is selling, I will blindly follow you're words mr businessman.

In reply to the article: HTC should just release it. What's left to unveil anyway? 16 MP combined resolution. Nice. S5 has some competition. I hope 4K recording is there too. Only if they didn't have the HTC Logo bar and went with capacitive buttons.

4k recording needs 8mp+ sensor resolution. Combined wont work i guess.

I mean the CAMERA was a failure. Other parts of the One were great!

Camera isn't a failure maybe in some parts but still remain excellent if you compare it to other big MP's camera.

Sure it takes great pics, but the thing is that when you start to zoom in the loss of detail is unforgivable. But if the All New One can really take detailed 16 mpx images, it will be among the top 3 camera phones for sure.

it wasn't a failure, it wasn't that great, but clearly not a failure.

Hmm. Funny. I took 3000 pictures in Hawaii and didn't think much of the pictures; I just stored them and went about my life. I go back and now I see how horrible the pictures really are. No chance at reading the sign in the picture, plus look at the sky between the Palm trees, totally splotchy. Lame, I wish I had my Note 3 I have now. Pictures are super clear.

How was last years htc One a failure? Yes sale volumes were down , but with as much praise the original One had, htc definitely is on the right track and the all new htc One will help bolster the company image, let's go htc!!!

So that means HTC One 2014's front facing camera(5mp Ultrapixel) is better than last year HTC One's rear back camera(4mp Ultrapixel)?? LMAO

49. zennacko unregistered

UltraPixel wasn't a "matured" technology back then (I think it wasn't, because it was crazy to compete with a 4MP sensor against 8MP+ from the competition, claiming the ONLY advantage of unparalleled low-light shots), they released what they had in hands (that was functional, at least) and it was a success. Now they made a more powerful UltraPixel camera, let's hope it's as good, or even better than last year's

I still think the original One is the best phone on the market even after all these announcements.

I called this when they leaked that the front cam was a 5mp One! Yay HTC! And good luck Two you! :D If the Padfone X was not coming to the US, this would most likely be my choice. I also loved hearing all the fan boys say it was going to be the same 4mp!

First it was the camera, now all you have left is the bezels. Let's be clear pathetic buthurt sammy fanboy, the worst camera and the biggest bezels and STILL it's miles away more beautiful than the hideous S5. Please take yr frustration directly on Yr beloved manufacturer. You sell 40 mill so no need to TROLL on others that clearly are doomed any way with such crap cameras and biig bezeles. So please, save you're efforts (paid or unpaid).
