HTC’s All New One has passed through Chinese TENAA certification, and the listing finally confirms the last thing we didn’t know about the device; the megapixel count of the two cameras on the rear of the device.
The TENAA listing has reported two resolutions for the All New One, one of which is a 16 megapixel shooter, and the other is listed as a 4 megapixel camera. That makes it pretty clear HTC is going to try a 3D photo gimmick with this device, so the next reasonable explanation would be mixing the 4 MP Ultrapixel camera with an uber-high resolution 16 MP camera. In low-light situations, the Ultrapixel camera can take over for sharp shots, and in brighter situations, the higher resolution camera can take the crystal clear shots.
The HTC One’s Ultrapixel camera was fantastic most of the time, but not all of the time so this two camera approach would make up for the few situations where the Ultrapixel just didn’t cut it. Whatever HTC has planned for the cameras, they’ll fill us in on March 25th.
What are your thoughts on this camera setup? A breakthrough in mobile camera technology, or an extra useless feature?
