Function of Two Rear Cameras in New HTC One Detailed in Leaked Sales Guide
The final pieces of the puzzle on the all new HTC One are coming together thanks to a leaked sales guide of Australian telco Telstra.
According to GSMArena, an anonymous source sent two photos of the sales guide on the upcoming HTC's flagship smartphone. Besides allowing you to take clear images in low light conditions, the dual-camera setup (also known as Duo Camera) enables you to take a photo and then re-focus it to blur the background or the foreground.
The adjustable focus is present in Nokia's Refocus app and the recently announced Android flagship smartphones (the LG G Pro 2, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2) all tout similar features on their cameras. The all new HTC One also has a front-facing 5-megapixel camera with wide angle lens and a special selfie mode. Other specs revealed in the sales guide include:
- 5-inch Full-HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) Super LCD 3 display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.3GHz processor
- A chassis crafted from a single block of aluminium with a smooth, zero edge and brushed finish
- HTC Sense 6 with Motion Launch
- 16GB internal storage (10GB available usable storage)
- microSD card slot
- 1/3-inch sensor size, 2µm pixel size
- 1080p video recording
- 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm
Apart from its hardware upgrades, the new flagship smartphone will come with nifty software features such as Motion Launch where users can answer incoming calls by placing the phone to the ear. Apps and BlinkFeed can be accessed by swiping or double tapping the screen when the phone is in sleep mode.
Photos, videos and official flip cases of the device are leaked over the past few weeks, which made us wonder if there are any more surprises to expect at the launch event on March 25 in New York and London.
