We’re now all waiting to see the upcoming HTC One M10 as Samsung and LG have already announced their 2016 flagships at MWC 2016. Apparently one of the biggest changes in going from the One M9 to the soon-to-be released successor will be found in the camera. For a long time, HTC’s phones have had cameras highly inferior to the competition. The company has worked hard in the past to change its results, but so far nothing has been very successful. The One M10’s camera, according to HTC, will be “very compelling” even with Samsung splitting pixels into two photodiodes and LG’s multi-camera approach. Could HTC really trump the experience of Samsung and LG? Maybe, but we won’t know for sure until we get proof when the phone is announced sometime this month or next.
Today, TechTastic posted an image online that has allegedly been taken from the One M10. Aside from giving us a tease of camera quality, the image’s data tells us about the camera’s technical details.
