Ad tips off contract price in Australia at AUD 840
HTC is just weeks away from officially unveiling its next generation “One” smartphone, but that isn’t stopping a wealth of information on the device from making its way to the internet.
The last leak about the new HTC One came this week when some
images of the device turned up on Chinese social network Weibo
. The image shows the new One from all sides and showed the size of the smartphone compared to the HTC One Max phablet.
Today another leak has surfaced -- via an ad from Telestra, an Australian wireless carrier -- offering details on the dual cameras of the new HTC One. According to the ad, the dual cameras will of course allow for 3D photography.
However, the coolest thing about the dual cameras for most people will be the fact that they allow you to take photos and change the focus point after shooting the image. The dual cams will also allow users to create bokeh effects.
Other details of the phone tipped by the leaked ad include a 5-inch full HD resolution screen and BoomSound speakers up the front. The smartphone is tipped to sell for AUD 840 with no contract. That would equate to about $760 in the U.S., but with the
notoriously high markups on technology products in Australia
, the off-contract price in the U.S. is likely to be cheaper.

The technology looks good but there's 2 problems
1. requires a lot of processing for a phone
2. results are good but not great. Even with their best examples, you can see it cannot replace a good shot simply because OOF shots will lose a lot of details that cannot be realigned back.
Maybe they've improved it for HTC but I wouldn't bet on it.
This technology will also not replace the bulky high aperture lenses. In fact, the lens are so big simply because they are in big camera bodies with distance from the sensor. For example, you can see how much smaller the Full Frame Sony A7/R F/1.8 55mm vs the same lens on the Nikon. The closer distance reduces lens size.
It makes no sense from an economic standpoint anyways because then you would need 2 lenses, 2 sensors on the body and twice the processing power hoping you can get enough detail to recover an image. Just take a good shot in the first place.
The HTC will most like employ something much simpler than what you're suggesting. But I could be wrong. However I highly doubt HTC would put 2 cameras and pay licensing fees to drive down their margin further.

Since when we're they designing phone cameras with the intent of replacing a serious camera?
