Just a few days ago, Samsung and LG introduced their new Android flagships, and each company placed a big focus on the capabilities of their new phone’s camera. Now that that info is out there, though, HTC is feeling pretty confident about the camera on its upcoming flagship.
HTC CFO Chialin Chang said in an interview with CNET that his company’s next phone “will have a very, very compelling camera experience.” Chang went on to emphasize that that statement is being made after HTC has seen “what’s going on in the market.” The exec didn’t divulge any other features of HTC’s next phone, but he did say that it’ll be shown off “very soon.”
HTC has made news with the cameras on its past three One M flagships. The One M7 introduced an UltraPixel sensor, the One M8 added a second sensor for adjusting a photo’s focus after it’d been taken, and the One M9 switched to a more traditional 20-megapixel sensor. Unfortunately for HTC, the One M9’s camera was the target of a lot of criticism following the device’s launch.
Many folks rely on their smartphone’s camera as the only device to capture photos from their lives, so a phone’s camera performance is important. HTC seems to recognize this and is touting that its next phone’s camera will be solid, so it’ll be interesting to put that camera to the test and see how it compares to other flagship phones on the market.
HTC recently teased its One M10 flagship, but it’s unknown when the device might be revealed.
