HTC unveils One series camera upgrade, gets dedicated chip, f/2.0 lens, 0.7-second startup
During their MWC 2012 keynote, HTC CEO Peter Chou was very excited about the camera sensor inside his brand new ‘One’ phones. The module packs a f/2.0 camera lens, while the company’s been busy crafting its own image sensor put behind it, called the HTC “ImageChip.” It’ll help to clarify low-lit pictures and ensure a capture speed of under a second — 0.7 seconds from starting up the camera app, to be precise. I believe running on ICS is also the reason behind the quick camera start up, as the Galaxy Nexus has a very fast focusing and shooting speed. It also has the tantalizing ability to shoot pictures while recording continuous-focus 1080p video. Add in a new LED flash that has five different levels of brightness control, which is quite a big improvement over the older generation HTC smartphones.
