A brochure from Telestra, one of the largest telecom operator in Australia reveals some of hardware specifications of the new HTC One from the house of Taiwan.
The brochure confirms the presence of a dual camera on the back that will allow new and original photographic functions. The new technology designed for the upcoming HTC One is called Duo Camera that will be used to choose focus point and create bokeh effects.
Now you can focus particularly on an object and blur the background that you often see in professional photographs. The dual sensor will also allow users to capture 3D photos and videos, and users can take multiple shots quickly and then select the best.
HTC has already introduced a smartphone with dual camera called Evo 3D but the technology didn’t work as hoped. With the new HTC One, the manufacturer hopes to capture the attention of consumers, especially those who’re always interested in a phone that can take quality photographs on every occasion.
In addition to Dual Camera, Telstra brochure also infers the smartphone will be packed with a 5-inch screen with 1080p resolution, BoomSound stereo speakers and new Sense UI 6.0, which allows you to turn on the device by simply tapping the screen twice, a feature similar to the KnockON of LG.
All new HTC One — codenamed HTC M8 — seems to have a slightly more curved body than the existing one, but doesn’t look much different aesthetically. It measures 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm and weighs 160grams. It will feature a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM.
The new flagship phone will support multiple band 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and NFC compatibility. Sadly, there will be only 2,600 mAh battery to power this beast however it will have a slot for microSD that wasn’t offered on the HTC One along with 16GB of onboard storage. It will also sport an incredible 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
The Australian operator will sell the new HTC One sans contract at AUD$840 (about USD$760 at current exchange rates). However, HTC hasn’t confirmed any recent rumors and leaks, but the upgrade seems impressive and we’re heading towards another Android starship from Taiwanese manufacturer.
