Everyday we are having new rumors about the new HTC One (2014). And those seem quite interesting. Unlike Samsung, we are really hoping to see something new from HTC. As leaked in last week, HTC One is gonna have a dual camera at its back. But at that time we were just left to think about the reason why HTC is implementing 2 cameras and that to on same side of the phone. Well, today we’ve got its explanation.
The two camera feature of the new HTC One will be called ‘Duo Camera’. According to the information spotted by GSMArena from alleged brochure of Australian carrier Telstra, Duo camera feature is provided for capturing good quality images even in the low light. Moreover it is said that Duo camera will be capable of creating background defocusing, selective focus and 3D effects. Except the 3D effect, there is no idea what other two features really do or how they function. Talking about 3D effects feature, HTC had already implemented it in the past with Evo 3D smartphone. So it remains to be seen whether HTC is taking another move towards 3D cameras or is trying something different on the new HTC One.
Here’s how the ad describes about a functionality of the new HTC One’s Duo Camera:
Create vivid images even in low light and professionally edit memories after you’ve taken the shot. Choose where to focus, highlight what you love, soften backgrounds and add 3D effects.
The adjustable focus feature of Nokia’s ‘Refocus’ app has become so popular that now all flagship devices like Galaxy S5, Xperia Z2 and LG G Pro 2 have it. However with two cameras on board the new HTC one won’t have to capture multiple shots with one camera and should yield better results.
Another thing we spotted in the brochure is ‘double-tap’ to wake up the screen feature. It was first featured by Sony on their Tablet Z and then adopted by LG on G2 and G Pro 2. As the name itself suggests this feature lets you wake up the phone by double tapping on screen. It is helpful for tablets or phones with bigger screen size because in that case you don’t need to press power button in a clumsy way.
So what are your views on the Duo Camera feature. Do let us know in comments below.
