Over the last couple of weeks we've heard a great deal about HTC's M7 including that it's likely to launch as the HTC One. A leaked image of the smartphone has also appeared , while we also have a good idea of the specification of the smartphone.
However, today we've heard a new rumour which suggests that the HTC M7 (or HTC One) will be the first device to include an "Ultrapixel Camera". Previously, we reported that HTC's smartphone would have a 13 mega-pixel camera , but it looks like that was slightly misleading.
The HTC M7's camera will have the equivalent of a 13 mega-pixel rating, but it'll actually have 3 separate 4.3 mega-pixel sensors. The "Ultrapixel" camera then combines the three images taken into a single image that is sharper and clearer than the image produced by an equivalent mega-pixel camera.
The technology adopts a similar approach to Nokia's 41 mega-pixel Pureview camera which combined multiple pixels from a single shot into one single pixel. However, HTC's new Ultrapixel camera takes things a step further because it has multiple camera sensors.
HTC are expected to unveil the HTC M7/HTC One on February 19th and we'll be bringing you all the news from the press event next week !
