New HTC One appears on Chinese certification site, reveals 16MP combined cameras, red version

All New HTC One - TENAA

The All New HTC One has just made its way to the Chinese device certification database TENAA, carrying information on the hardware accompanied by a few pictures of the handset. The smartphone shown here is the China Mobile variant with support for TD-LTE networks as you can see from the image above.

While the mention of a 5 inch 1080p display and the quad core Snapdragon 801 chipset doesn’t surprise us, the camera resolution certainly looks interesting. According to the website, the dual cameras on the back will carry a combined resolution of 16 megapixels.

On the front however, the smartphone will reportedly borrow the rear ‘Ultrapixel’ camera from the original HTC One to capture better selfies. The handset will also feature 2GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of internal storage with an expandable microSD card slot. The certification site further reveals the presence of a red variant, in addition to the grey, silver and gold models which have leaked so far.

The new HTC One is rumored to go on sale immediately after its announcement on the 25th of March, at least in the UK. So we expect other parts of the world to receive similar treatment, especially a market like China which has great demand for smartphones of all kind.

    16Mp would be great news. Not sure what combined means though. Are they 8Mp each or is one 4 and the other 12? Confusing..

      12/4 or 10/6 possibly. One will be an UltraPixel for mass light absorption and the other will be to provide better sharpness and zoomable detail and combine the images to make one dynamic image. All just a hunch of course, but I predict we will see extremely sharp images being produced.

        I really hope so.. I miss cropping pictures with no distortion.

        I doubt. HTC is focusing more on lytro like feature with bokeh effect. But I really, really hope the resolution of the final image is at least 8MP.

          I’m pretty sure we are going to have the best of both. Zoom, refocusing, higher resolution…we’ll get it all and more.

    I thought or read that the front camera was already a 5mp so that would leave a 10/11mp rear?

    • Actually according to the certification, there’s a 4MP front-facing camera and a combined 16MP for both rear cameras. If that is true or not, remains to be seen.
