A detailed look at what the HTC M8′s dual-sensor camera will offer

A detailed look at what the HTC M8′s dual-sensor camera will offer

HTC’s focus during Mobile World Congress has been on the HTC Desire 816 and Desire 610, but a few members of the press were able to dig up some information which gives us greater insight into what HTC may be planning with a dual-sensor camera setup on the back of the All New HTC One.

Corephotonics was at Mobile World Congress, demoing its dual-sensor camera technology at Qualcomm’s booth. The dual-sensor camera setup from Corephotonics allows a phone to capture an image at two different aperture and focal lengths, merging the image data pixel by pixel into a single picture inside an Image Fusion Library. Paired with the company’s advanced image processing algorithms, this camera setup is able to deliver improved high dynamic range, better low-light performance, refocusing, all in focus and 3D mapping capabilities. Corephotonics is also touting true 3x optical zoom which would set its camera tech apart from the competition if they can delivery on the promise.

While Corephotonics would not say if the company is working with HTC on the M8′s imaging capabilities, the company does expect its technology to be featured in mainstream devices this year. Since HTC’s focus with its UltraPixel camera technology has been to delivery improved low light camera performance rather than simply joining in on the megapixel race. The dual-sensor camera technology from Corephotonics seems like it would be a natural next step for HTC.

Do you think HTC is taking the right imaging approach with its flagship devices or should the company get back in line with the competition and deliver devices with standard camera technology?

    I hate the Ultrapixel camera, but if we get a 13UP, recording at 4K, these dual sensor are excelent! But it would be a nice upgrade if HTC put this camera the option to do 3D photos too.

      HTC is NOT going the 3d route with this camera.It for photo depth and clarity. Also, post photo editing. Zooming without grainy artifacts and looking like crap. I liked the UP camera. If you know what you’re doing, it takes excellent pics.But no we dont need to revisit 3d anything anymore. Doubtful they try that again and they really shouldnt.

      I love capability of UP for low light pictures. Can’t wait to see what is in this innovation.
