Megapixels? Pfft! HTC M7 camera to rock ‘ultrapixels’

Megapixels? Pfft! HTC M7 camera to rock ‘ultrapixels’The rumour mill has painted a fairly vivid picture of the imminent HTC M7, and one of the components listed on the spec sheet is a 13MP rear camera.

However, the latest word on the street suggests that won’t in fact be the case, with the HTC M7 instead boasting 3x 4.3MP sensor layers combined. Hmm, 3x 4.3 is kinda 13, I guess.

That’s the story according to Pocket-lint, with credit going to “sources familiar with the matter”.

Essentially, three lots of data will combine to represent a single pixel, yielding a crisper, cleaner image, quite possibly with increased colour accuracy.

We expect to hear plenty of “ultrapixel” talk at the Taiwanese manufacturer’s February 19 event, where the HTC M7 is expected to launch officially.

Other rumoured HTC M7 specs include a 4.7in display (1920 x 1080), quad-core Qualcomm processor, 32GB storage (sans microSD, is the consensus), 2GB of RAM, and a 2MP front camera.

As Martin was saying yesterday, it’s been a tough time for HTC of late, with profits, margins and targets all heading south.

It's been done for years now by Foveon, the aim is a better color accuracy. Nothing new...
