Lolo, 10 Jan 2017 Camera Megapixel Support Up to 16 MP dual camera Up to 32 MP single camera Image Senso... moreYou are talking about hardware support though. The Nokia 808 only had a single core 1.3GHz processor and that had a 41 megapixel camera. It's all about the software and the image sensor.
Tom900, 11 Jan 2017I dont understand why HTC cant take old M7 body, put the latest tech inside and its good. Its ... moreYou are right. M7 looks really good, better than M8 even. They can use the same M7 shell and upgrade the specs, less bezels.
I dont understand why HTC cant take old M7 body, put the latest tech inside and its good. Its perfect size (not too big) and nice design overall. Reason why apple makes profit is they have rather old hardware and keep upgrading it rather than throwing new and new models. Also key argument for apple buyers is the SIZE of the phone. It cant be so big that your thumb doesn't reach top corner comfortably.
The battery for the U ultra is OK but concerned about the size of the top n bottom bezel's even though it seems there will be ffs.
Lolo, 10 Jan 2017 Camera Megapixel Support Up to 16 MP dual camera Up to 32 MP single camera Image Senso... moreSimilarly the cortex chip in Nokia 808 or 1020 could only support 20 MP camera but they had 41 MP so there is probably some way to bypass the MP issue in phones
This doesn't make sense, with the much improved Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC but HTC still only equip it's flagship with a measly 4GB RAM & 64GB internal storage is disgracefully. This seems like no upgrade from last year's HTC 10.
and again... 5.2 and low battery like all your old models, its a shame that HTC have so good phones with poor battery, I'll never buy it again for that, never
If the finger print sensor is going to be on the back of htc u ultra does that suggest that we're be getting a dual front firing speakers back.

Spudly Mcgudly, 10 Jan 2017Since when is the megapixel count of the camera module dictated by the SOC? I might be wrong,... moreIt does depend on SOC. If you check the the specs from SOC manufacturers you will find the count of megapixels the SOC supports. After all, the higher the number of pixels, the more data needs to be transferred.
Historically it was a long was from proprietary combo jack ( for charging, audio and connection to PC) to separate 3.5 mm standard audio jack. And 3.5 mm jack was a great idea highly appreciated by phone users all around the world. Now we are moving back to old days of primitive phones / smartphones. What will be the next step? Ditching USB-C and moving back to proprietary jacks like it was 15 years ago? Such and idiotic decision. Clear regress instead of progress. I personally will never buy any smartphone without 3.5 jack. Not only because I need one but also because I totally disagree with removal decision and not going to support it with my own money.
robogo, 10 Jan 2017As always, HTC will bungle things up by skyrocketing the prices, sales expectations will fail,... moreYeah, unfortunately. I feel like Htc doesnt have talent left anymore and theyre sticking to what they always did to hide it. Except now phones from Xiaomi and Huaweii are better and cheaper, so it doesnt work anymore.
Lolo, 10 Jan 201724+13 MP dual camera with sd835? That is not possible! Maximum 32 MP so 16+16...Since when is the megapixel count of the camera module dictated by the SOC? I might be wrong, but we're not talking about the hardware encoding of video here, so in theory they could put in a module with 100 megapixels and it would work..
wmurch3, 10 Jan 2017why does it matter if the software runs smooth? This cuts down on costs I'm sure and knowing ... moreWhatever it is.. The performance will be always inferior comparing to Snapdragon counterparts and not only that, There will be less Custom ROMS available. So it's definitely a deal breaker for me.
