HTC M8 to feature twin-sensor UltraPixel camera?

The HTC One M8 could feature a twin-sensor UltraPixel camera according to a new rumour.

Along with a larger display, the HTC One follow-on could upgrade its UltraPixel rear camera with a twin-sensor.

Citing a “person with direct knowledge of the plans”, Bloomberg has obtained information suggesting the HTC M8 will feature a twin-sensor rear camera to improve camera performance

It will be an improved version of the UltraPixel camera, but the twin-sensors will improve depth of field, image quality and better focus, according to the source.

The improved camera will be coupled with a larger screen size somewhere between the One’s 4.7-inch screen and the 5.9-inch HTC One Max.

Previous specs leaks put the screen size of the HTC One Two at 5-inches, with a Full 1080p HD resolution running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

Other rumoured specs include Android 4.4 KitKat, HTC Sense 6.0 UI and 2GB of RAM.

Earlier this week, two HTC M8 cases leaked suggesting it will feature an integrated fingerprint scanner just as the One Max.

The cases showed a large hole for what is thought to be an enhanced fingerprint scanner, very evidently different in shape to the HTC One Max’s rear scanner.

HTC is opting for a more invasive fingerprint scanner position, unlike the Touch ID sensor built into the home button of the iPhone 5S from Apple.

The HTC M8 is strongly expected to make an official appearance at MWC 2014, or at a dedicated event just before the Barcelona-based technology show.

This time last year, the Taiwanese company was gearing up to launch the HTC One at a special London-based event prior to MWC.
