HTC One (M9) to use the same wireless module as the Nexus 6, could have a 20 MP Toshiba camera

HTC One (M9) to use the same wireless module as the Nexus 6, could have a 20 MP Toshiba camera
We already know what to expect from the HTC One (M9), but we're still far from having a complete and confirmed list of specs. So every relevant detail that shows up interests us. The latest info regarding the next-generation One comes from HTC ROM developer LlabTooFeR, who says that the smartphone will feature a Broadcom BCM4356 wireless module.

Also used by Google's Nexus 6, the BCM4356 supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1, and should significantly boost the Wi-Fi performance of the One (M9) over the One (M8).

Another thing that LlabTooFeR has to share is related to the rear camera of the M9. Reportedly, this might use a 20 MP Toshiba T4KA7 sensor (1/2.4-inch, 1.12-micron pixels) - which, of course, is expected to outperform the two camera sensors found on the back of the One (M8).

As you may have heard, HTC will announce the One (M9) on March 1 at MWC 2015, a couple of hours before Samsung should unveil its Galaxy S6 and S Edge. A One (M9) Plus version might be unveiled at the same time. While the (M9) Plus could sport a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, the regular (M9) is expected to have a 5-inch 1080p screen. Of course, we'll know for sure if that's true only after HTC officially reveals all the details.

Unless they're using incredibly expensive and advanced module and optics (bigger too) technology, all constantly and frequently increasing the megapixel count of these cameras is doing is limiting low-light photography potential. That's the primary challenge smartphone sensors still face. They realistically could have stopped at 13 MPs and just refined other aspects of the module further for true picture quality improvements.
