Dual-sensor camera, larger display touted in HTC One sequel
The next version of the HTC One could be coming out in March, according to a report. The new smartphone, said to be codenamed the M8, will apparently ship with a larger display when compared to the original, a twin-sensor rear camera, and according to other reports, though new photographs of a back cover are said by some to be proof it will have some form of fingerprint scanner.
Sources of Bloomberg claim it to have a screen measuring at least five inches, though retaining the same design of the original. Using a Snapdragon processor, the twin-sensor system on the back is said to provide better focus and depth of field for shots, though it will also use the Ultrapixel camera from the HTC One in some way.
Images from Alibaba spotted by Gotta Be Mobile are claimed to be of a casing for the smartphone, and shows a number of large holes in the cover that are for a fingerprint reader. Though plausible, the holes do not match the shapes and positions of the camera and flash seen in earlier imagery, making the fingerprint reader an unlikely addition.
