HTC One for KDDI in Japan sports new camera software, microSD card support
Branded as the HTC J One, au by KDDI in Japan will begin selling HTC’s new metal bodied flagship device early next month.

We saw a China bound HTC One device last month with a removable back plate revealing dual-SIM card slots plus microSD card support. While the dual-SIM card arrangement is not a generally a feature in high demand, few people argue against expandable storage ability.

The HTC J One (model HTL22) offers just that, microSDXC to be exact, up to 64GB. That is in addition to the standard 32GB on board by the way. When you check out the promotion video from KDDI below, you will also notice a couple other neat features that will be available in Japan, notably a “best shot” feature which is like BlackBerry’s Time Shift. Also on board is the ability to edit out background elements.

While there is not much of an expectation to seeing microSD support come to other markets, we can hope for some camera software upgrades. Perhaps we will see that when Jelly Bean 4.2.2 arrives.
