More about 'GC': "Using two low profile apertures this front camera is capable of producing a high sensitivity full HD video and simultaneously producing a 3D depth map for gesture and other applications."
I guess one use would be to use your Phone as a Webcam and be able to navigate a Virtual Reality World (visible on your Computer's Monitor) by waving your hands -- would be better if the front Camera was dual aperture as well.

I noticed two recent comments about "dual Camera".
Note that in closeups you can see that the (as you call it) 'two Cameras' are different sizes (physically).
TECHNICALLY speaking it is NOT a "dual Camera", it is ONE Camera with dual apertures (there can be up to 4, so far).
To quote from the Page :http://www.corephotonics.com/computational-photography -- which contains (on the Home Page) a Camera that LOOKS a lot like the one in the upcoming 'HTC One 2014' -- BUT is NOT confirmed as being the same Camera; this is just rumour and speculation.
IF someone has a better GUESS, we all want to know, so no need to flame, just post a Link (please).
"Corephotonics has designed a family of camera reference designs for single, dual and quad aperture cameras. Such designs enable powerful features such as true optical zoom, very low profile cameras, high dynamic range, refocusing, gesture control and more."
So you get (computational) Optical Zoom, maybe "real" Optical Zoom also, (and digital Zoom), HDR, Refocusing, Gesture Control, and what they call "3-D Like" (I guess I'd call it 2.5-D, less than really nice 3D), and "more" unspecified goodies (later?).
Note: One possible short explanation of "Gesture Control" is here: http://image-sensors-world.blogspot.ca/2013/01/amd-apu-features-gesture-control-support.html .
My GUESS is that it means that it is more than just "smile detection". POSSIBLY, you could beckon with your finger to make the Camera center the frame upon that person. Do not expect any such thing in the FIRST release of the Software BUT at least you have the HARDWARE that (maybe) is capable of doing it (and without that you would rely on some really cleaver programming).
Here is: "New HTC One 2014 (M8) Hands-on Review". (in Russian, but easy to understand just by watching): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIS5oPMdObY
That seems the best Review I can find -- perhaps someone could translate a few of the interesting bits for us.
10 days and counting, tick, tick, tick -- Boom goes the BoomSound ! (Thanks Olivia).
Better Theories we all want to hear, flames we do not.
I wasnt too excited about this phone when it was first rumoured sometime in 2013 but the [alleged] specs are impressive... Water / dust proofing of some sort would be great, but that's all to be announced on 25/03/14. I bought the ONE MAX version and I must say it really is a beautiful piece of tech, I still don't have KK4.4 but it's still fast and loud ... Looking forward to THE ALL NEW ONE.. And possibly the MAX version - this might be that "back-to-basics" device that's sees HTC heading back into the green as far as profits goes...
