THey really kept the 4MP camera? wow. I had the One, and that was honestly the only complaint about the phone i had. You would think that with the technology nowadays, they'd be able to bump that ultra pixel camera to 8MP or 10MP.

Definetly True.
,i currently have a Nexus 4,but im planning to upgrade due to camera and display,etc.
Nexus 5 looks cool overall but i prefer HTC One Stereo Speakers,Aluminium Body,Camera Quality.etc
my only Cons for the htc one are:
1.No menu button (or remove them all and go for onscreen buttons like nexus devices
2. a camera with 4mp while others reached 12+(nokia with 41mp),no matter how good its camera is,you cant really zoom a single photo because Pixels will appear immediately,the quality is good but a non zooming camera is kinda useless.with that great quality,8mp will honestly be enough and make a Beast Phone.

if those two th

I will admit after 1520 I love the HTC One design, I especially love the HTC speakers, I will admit the speakers alone almost took me away from 1520, until I hear the 1520 speakers but if I was still on droid I would get htc as my next phone if they keep the speakers and keep it up with the sexy design......

Do you really zoom your pictures so often? I never. I know it could be more than 4mpx and its not the best camera but its descent and an average screen on laptop/pc doesnt have more than full hd so for me 4mpx is completely enough (its about 2680x1560). No menu button? dont you know that home button in htc one is also a menu button and multitask button? hold it - menu, double click - multitask.

I'm not sure who wrote the image text, but in the actual article it clearly states:

"It will be the first phone to feature such a dual camera, without aiming it straight at 3D photography. Instead, rumors agree that the dual-sensor setup will contribute most to improved focusing, depth of field and overall image quality."

The Toshiba twin 5MP sensors (at 1.4 µm) they mention can output a 13MP image. If HTC implement their own sensors (at 2 µm) this may mean a slighly lower resolution than 13MP, but still larger than 4MP in dual-shooting mode.

They kept the ultra pixel sensor. Nowhere does it say that the rear shooter is 4mp/up. If anything the front camera will be 4mp/up. Plus with the second camera, I'm sure you can take images ator around 13mp.
But in the end we will have to wait and see.

You do realize that sensor pixel count != image quality right?

Agreed...I LOVE my ONE except for camera quality. I see no reason they couldn't put the Sony 13 MP OIS camera in the LG G2 in this model. If it had this camera I would go out buy it day one ...less than an than 8 and I will pass entirely.

Hopefully they bring out a higher UltraPixel or just ditch it I love my one but I feel it's camera is lacking compared to other flagships but at least the low lighting is pretty decent

Hm, I'm not feeling too excited about the rumors, but I loved the HTC One design so much I hope they don't make it exactly the same but take the design and make it even better.
