New HTC One To Bring Larger Display, Twin-Sensor Camera [Report]


The upcoming HTC One successor is set to deliver a larger display and a new twin-sensor, rear-facing camera, Bloomberg reports. According to sources familiar with HTC’s plans, the updated device will retain its predecessor’s name and come in a very similar physical design.

The new HTC One will use Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon processor, and will have “a screen size of at least 5 inches,” according to the report. It will also have two rear-facing camera sensors that aim to provide improvements in focus, depth of field and image quality. The camera will maintain the UltraPixel name from the original One.

This information corroborates leaked specifications for the new HTC One that surfaced earlier this month. Mike1986, a recognized developer and reliable leaker, claimed that the second-generation One would pack a quad-core Snapdragon 805 chipset, a 5-inch 1080p display and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.

We also expect the device to have a microSD card slot — unlike the original One — and to ship with Google’s latest KitKat operating system alongside Sense 6.0, the next major release of HTC’s user interface.

Bloomberg reports that the new device will be launched at the end of March, around the original One’s first birthday.
