HTC M7 Smartphone to Get an “Ultrapixel” Camera Sensor?

by Shane McGlaun

In the smartphone world it seems like one of the things that manufacturers are always one upping each other on is the number of megapixels in the smartphone camera. HTC is looking to set itself apart from the pack by ditching megapixels and going with a sensor promising something the company is calling “Ultrapixels.” The new HTC M7 smartphone is rumored to use an image sensor offering said Ultrapixel capability.


The image sensor rumored to be used in the camera has three 4.3-megapixel sensor layers according to sources claiming to be familiar with the product. Previous rumors of the new smartphone have hinted that it would have a 13-megapixel sensor of the garden variety. Interestingly, the trio of 4.3-megapixel sensors would add up to very near 13-megapixel total.

However, the source of this rumor claims that the new camera will use a technique that allows the data from three separate sensors to be represented in one final pixel. The data is combined to generate a crisper and clearer image along the lines of a sensor offered by Sigma called the Foveon X3. This new image sensor is expected to be the core feature of the M7 smartphone.

We won’t have to wait too long to find out exactly what the HTC M7 will have to offer – it’s expected to be announced at a London press conference on February 19, a full week before this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
