Eldar Murtazin has gotten hold of a yet unknown HTC device, running WP7 and sporting a 12 MP snapper on its back. He's even prepared two photos of the phone along with a video demo of the Mango 7.1 update, running on this HTC phone. You can watch it below, if you're curious.
The phone itself shares some looks with the HTC Trophy, namely the huge earpiece grill HTC seems to like so much and the overall form factor. Also there's a thin silver trim running around the display to add to the overall premium look of the handset.
The photos show the camera app on the unknown HTC device, clearly proving it has indeed a 12 MP sensor inside. That would mean that Windows Phone 7 will finally up the ante in the camera department and second that HTC may be on its way to producing a decent cameraphone (finally).
When we got wind of this new handset by HTC, HTC Bresson immediately came to mind, but that one was rumored to bring a 16 MP camera to the megapixel race track. Obviously, HTC won't stop at 12MP.
As for the Mango update, it looks to be working very smoothly on the HTC X. There's a walkthrough of the entire UI but to get the explanations, you'd need to dust off your Russian.
PS: Eldar Murtazin had this to say on his Twitter account: "I like 12 megapixel camera on WP7 - support RAW, some additional settings. Quality is not bad at all. Will compare with N8 tomorrow". Excited? Yeah we are too and will keep you posted.
What is the point in a 12 mp phone when it will only let you send mms picture messages in 640 by 320? You have to set the resolution under 1mp for the person to receive the picture in full screen, anything higher than 1 mp gets compressed
With virtually every mobile provider charging by the MB for data transfer, in the UK, that is just a great idea! At present I personally pay £10 a GB and that is cheaper than most! This it will most the average user at least £250 just to ...
Had a good night's rest? Anyway, skydrive is a cloud storage app. 25 GB is the free space you get there. Fool.
