According to past reports, HTC will be replacing the disappointing UltraPixel Duo Camera on the HTC One (M8) with a whopping 20-megapixel camera on the upcoming HTC One (M9) / Hima. However, we haven’t really come across any evidence to support this, until now. Photos, supposedly snapped from HTC’s next flagship, confirm that it is a 20-megapixel snapper.
The photos you see above have been uploaded to Flickr by Jerry Wang, an HTC employee. Although the photos don’t show anything specific, they were taken by two yet to be announced HTC”s made devices, the “HTC 0PJA10” and the “HTC 0PJA13.” The two model numbers have been linked to the HTC One (M9) (code named Hima) and the more powerful HTC One (M9) Plus (code named the Hima Plus).
Going back to the photos, their resolutions are 3024 x 5376 pixels, which indicates that a 16-megapixel camera was used to snap the photos. However, according to Phandroid, the images were cropped to fit in a 16:9 aspect ratio. This suggests that the images were slightly bigger, further suggesting that a 20-megapixel front-facing camera was used to snap the photos. According to reports, HTC will be using Sony’s 20-megapixel camera sensor.
Of course, since this is anything but official take it with a pinch of salt.
