Optical zoom all set to hit HTC handsets in 2015

With so much competition in the mobile phone market, all manufacturers want to pack their high end handsets with the top quality features and similarly HTC also wants to pack its top-of-the-range devices with powerful camera tech and it is simply no more about adding up on the megapixels.

Talking of the latest HTC One (M8), the phone features a pair of cameras on its rear which gives users the full control to manipulate depth-of-field, among other special features. The UK carrier Vodafone gives some insight into HTC's roadmap for camera tech imaging guru Symon Whitehorn claimed "we could be 4K ready now," if it actually made sense to do so.

Whitehorn also indicated towards the other upcoming phones and has commented that the traditional point-and-shoot cameras will soon go obsolete. This means that it wont be too long before performance will move up to the DSLR territory (probably within two years). However for this to happen, the phones will need to incorporate optical zooming and as said by Whitehorn this is not going to take long for the HTC.

REVIEW: LG's New G3 May Be The Best Giant Screen Phone Yet, But There's Still One Problem

Source: The Business Insider

Samsung may be the most popular smartphone maker in the world, but other handset vendors are upping their game to claim that spot — namely LG. With its roomy high-resolution display and sleek design, LG's new G3 flagship certainly has a lot to offer. But that doesn’t mean it’s perfect. LG is still trying to push its signature rear key design, which places the power and volume buttons on the back of the device rather than the side. The G3 is available from Verizon, ...

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.
