According to a report out of Bloomberg this morning, HTC will release its follow-up to the One in March. Their sources – a person with direct knowledge of HTC’s plans – claim that the phone will once again be called “One,” sport a display greater than the 4.7-inch panel used in the original One yet smaller than the 5.9-inch display of the One Max, run Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon processor, and carry a “twin-sensor” camera.
A display greater than 4.7-inches could mean 5-inch or 5.2-inch for all we know. The details given were not specific. The latest Snapdragon processor could be the 805, since the 800 isn’t exactly new these days and no phone currently runs the 805. But what about this “twin-sensor” camera?
According to this report, a “twin-sensor” camera will “provide better focus, depth of field and image quality. It will also be called UltraPixel, just like we saw on the original One. I just hope it takes pictures at a greater resolution than 4MP.
This report claims that the phone will arrive in March. Timing-wise, that sounds about right for a follow-up. Mobile World Congress (MWC) will take place once again at the end of February, and HTC typically announces their new flagship for the year around that time. So a late February unveiling could happen, with availability happening shortly thereafter in March.
