HTC One M10 will feature a "very compelling camera", says exec
Reportedly, HTC's next-generation flagship smartphone will offer a "very, very compelling camera experience." Chialin Chang is confident about the camera's appeal "after seeing what's going on in the market." The HTC exec was likely referring to the fact that the company checked out the new high-end handsets unveiled this month at MWC 2016 - including the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the LG G5, both of which come with very promising cameras.
Not long ago, we heard that the HTC One M10 would feature a 12 MP UltraPixel rear camera with laser auto focus - an important change from the 20 MP rear camera of the One M9, as well as from the 4 MP UltraPixel dual camera of the One M8. As you may know, the cameras of the One M9 and One M8 haven't really been on par with what the competition offered, so we're curious to see what the One M10 can do in this regard. A 12 MP snapper with larger-than-usual-pixels (that's what UltraPixels are) should provide high quality images even in low light scenarios. Of course, the final quality of the camera will also depend on what sensor it's using, and on HTC's software.
The One M10 - codenamed HTC Perfume - should be announced "very soon", probably in March. New camera aside, the smartphone is expected to bring an all-metal body, a Quad HD display (possibly measuring 5.1 inches), a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of storage space. So, who's excited about this handset?
