HTC’s Ultrapixel Camera Could Come to Mid-Range Handsets

HTC One Camera

HTC may not be launching any more flagship handsets this year but that doesn’t mean the excellent features seen on the HTC One will be limited to just that device.

Phil Roberson, Head of HTC UK and Ireland, gave an interview to mobile comparison site Omio in which he says that the firm may bring its UltraPixel camera to mid-range devices.

Roberson pointed out that HTC has a history of putting high-spec camera features in cut-price handsets. “If you look at what we did on the One V, that had the same image chip as we had on the One X” he explained. “There is definitely the potential to take it into those spaces.”

The HTC boss also noted that there is a good chance that his firm’s older handsets will receive upgrades to the new user interface, Sense 5.0, recently making its debut on the flagship HTC One.

While Roberson mentions that BlinkFeed will feature prominently in any such upgrade, he makes no mention of the HTC Zoe camera feature that has widely impressed on the HTC One coming to older devices. Whether this will eventually makes the jump to more competitively priced HTC devices remains to be seen, although hardware permitting, we’d assume that HTC will at least attempt a port.
