New rumor suggests HTC One (M9) to come with dual 20MP cameras at the rear
HTC is upping the ante on the mobile imaging front on its next Android flagship smartphone if the source of Laptopmedia is to be trusted.
According to Laptopmedia, an insider source claims that HTC's upcoming flagship smartphone - commonly referred as the One (M9) and codenamed Hima - will come with twin 20-megapixel rear cameras. The source also confirms that the One (M9) will have an UltraPixel camera sensor at the front.
The Duo Camera setup was introduced on the One (M8) last year, which enables the device to capture depth of field (DOF) information and offers a new set of editing options and picture enhancements. For a recap of how this works, do check out our hands-on and review articles.
If the report is true, we can expect to see a huge improvement in the imaging capability of the One (M9) compared to its predecessors, the One (M8) and One (2013) which are handicapped by the lacklustre UltraPixel camera sensor.
The One (M9) is believed to be unveiled at HTC's press event on March 1 in Barcelona before Mobile World Congress 2015 kicks off. It is alleged to retain a 5-inch Full-HD display and runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset. The design is also rumored to be similar to the One (M8) except for a larger cutout for the rear camera.
