HTC may introduce high-performance new camera with this fall’s Aero
One of the first things we look at when checking out a new smartphone is camera performance. After all, that’s a feature we use every day, and one that’s immediately accessible. So it’s little wonder that many of the rumors we’ve been hearing about upcoming smartphones have spent at least some time talking about new camera hardware. The latest concerns what HTC’s been working on, and claims that a substantial camera upgrade is due for the release of one of the manufacturer’s next big Androids.
The phone in question is the handset codenamed Aero, and to hear reports, this new camera could be a big deal. We don’t get a lot of detail about what in particular is supposed to be improved, but the overall theme of the rumor is that this tech could really deliver in ways that Ultrapixel never did. Beyond just arriving with this new camera hardware, Aero could also introduce improved HTC camera software, with RAW support and all sorts of other goodies.
While that all sounds nice, it also leaves us with a ton of questions. We know that megapixel count is a lousy metric by which to compare cameras, but we’re still curious just how Aero’s shooter might stack up. And will this big camera upgrade be solely for the phone’s primary camera, or will the front-facer also benefit from these improvements? We’ll need to wait for another source to speak up before we get any of those answers.
