Rumors Claim HTC M7 Will Have a Novel Ultrapixel Camera Sensor

Rumors have surfaced about a coming HTC smartphone called the HTC M7. The smartphone is rumored to have a 13-megapixel image sensor. However, sources are now claiming that the image sensor isn't your typical 13-megapixel unit. According to the rumors, HTC will be using what it calls an Ultrapixel image sensor in the camera.

This image sensor will consist of a trio of 4.3-megapixel sensors the combined results for a single image according to the source. The way the sensor is reported to work would have all the information from images captured by each of the 4.3-megapixel sensors overlaid to create a single image. This technique in other image sensors is being used produce higher resolution photographs with clearer and sharper imagery in better colors.

The so-called Ultrapixel sensor is tipped to be the key feature of the M7 smartphone. We don't have any other details on the smartphone at this time. The official launch with a smartphone is expected to happen on February 19.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
