We're two weeks out from Mobile World Congress, and just over a week away from learning what HTC's been cooking up for its 2013 flagship device. That means there's plenty of international Android news to talk about this week, as we await the arrival of new devices from some of the biggest manufacturers around.
Starting with HTC, we've heard a couple of interesting rumors doing the rounds this week surrounding the company's upcoming "M7" flagship phone. Earlier in the week UK blog Pocket-Lint claimed to have details of new image sensor technology at work in the phone's camera. If the reports are to be believed, HTC's next big thing will pack a new 4.3-"ultrapixel" setup that uses a multi-layer image sensor, with one layer for each primary color. Supposedly this new tech will produce more accurate colors and superior fine detail, though as with any new camera tech, we'll have to wait to get our hands on it before we know for sure. (In the meantime, HTC's teasing a "new sound and camera experience" this year, so it sounds like there may be something to these rumors.)
