I'll take the "UltraPixel selfie cameras" with a handful of dead sea salt just as I would with these other two mix-ups:
Rear = 12 MP, ┬â/1.7; HTC UltraPixel┬Ö 3; UltraSpeed AF; OIS
Front = 16 MP, ┬â/2.0; Selfie Panorama
Primary = 12 MP, f/2.0
Secondary = 16 MP, f/1.7
AnonymouseX, 02 May 20172017 already and flagships still have 2K screens We now have 4K since 20152k is good already for such a small display
Like we couldn't make an educated guess about it having the 835 chip, with 4 gB ram and 64gb internal. The big question is about it's bezels and capacity to take night selfies like a champ. This is what 2017 flagships are distinguished from 2016 flagships.
LG passed, even with a 2016 chip, Sony has failed miserable, OnePlus remains a mystery but is likely to fail too, but what HTC does will be important, as it determine the fate of the pixels too!
It will a great phone definitely, build quality, camera, sound, UI, screen size, SLCD 6, good battery.
Funny how people now have a problem that a camera has too many megapixels :D
iPnos, 02 May 2017I totally agree with you. With the back camera you can capture anything and zooming in is quit... moreYour rational argument is absolutely right. BUT rational people would hardly be wasting much time taking narcies anyway. But all the self obsessed people is likely to also be the same irrational people that thinks more small pixels are better than fewer larger.
So in that sense this is a quite clever move: Keep the pixel count down on the main camera for the benefit of the thinking buyers, and stuff the narcie-camera with a lot of tiny pixels, to make the stupid people happy... This way they can please two different user groups, and thus sell more....

Raggae, 02 May 2017Oneplus will be offering double the RAM and storage for less price😂😂&a... moreDouble the RAM only to waste it
6GB RAM and still reloads. What is that? How much RAM does it need to keep those apps running?
XZs with 4GB RAM is more than enough to dethrone that quantity out of its position as the fastest Android phone
SD820 vs SD821
4GB RAM vs 6GB RAM
eMMC 5.1 vs UFS 2.0
Skinned UI vs Stock Android
And is just a second or two slower, and often faster in most cases. Even gets wrecked by an inferior hardware in multitasking, which shows what a perfectly matched software and hardware can do.
Thing is, 3T's hardware is super powerful, and the software is super light, but they're not well-synchronized together to form a powerhouse, otherwise these simple things like sudden reloading won't happen at all.
iPnos, 02 May 2017I totally agree with you. With the back camera you can capture anything and zooming in is quit... moreI've given the Oppo F1s a try with its 16mp front selfie camera, and while I'm happy with the amount of detail resolved, I don't think that's enough for me to consider such an incredible selfie camera. Other factors include the quality, which, while high quality, can get noisy at darker environments. Skin tone color is super artificial - I'm brownish white but the camera makes me look as a Spanish man, and that's with any beautification turned off.
13mp front camera is enough for a flagship, and glad to see Sony doing that.
Front camera AF is a must though, and wide angle selfie lens will have to do
Hope the phone is metal. I'm waiting for it to come out but if it's glass. I will buy htc 10. Spec, I'll put aside. Coz sense is pretty much way better compared to other ui. Most important for me is fluidity of everyday usage which. Camera is totally not important coz I i dont know the different between 2 photo. What is dynamic range and so on. It doesn't matter to me as long it can snap clear picture. Another thing, sound. Plz come out with stereo speaker. I just bought a xiaomi redmi note 4 as a replacement for my m7 which I used for a few years. But the ui is not that friendly. I'm more towards pure Android. Htc 11 htc 10 and one plus 3t is on my list. And I'm htc fan boy. Thanks. Hahaha.

Peter-B, 02 May 2017You're right, of course. I still think it's weird when the selfie cam has a higher resolution ... moreI totally agree with you. With the back camera you can capture anything and zooming in is quite useful in many cases. On the other hand, with the selfie camera you are just going to capture -what else- faces. A good quality 5 MP (or maximum) 8 MP I think is more than enough. Quality vs Quantity.
Obi Wan Kenobi, 02 May 2017Hey Peter, unlike other GSMA guys, your gravatar is not based on your face, right? :PCamera quality doesn't rely on the megapixel count alone.
We can never say that the S8's 12mp rear camera is worse than the XA's 16mp front camera

Herodroid, 02 May 2017It would get even more endurance if it had 1080p display.Galaxy S7 Edge 2K setting has little to no difference compared to Galaxy S7 Edge 1080p setting (given they're the same model) in endurance rating.
A narcie-cam with higher resolution than the camera merely used for the rest of the world...
A true Trumphone ®...
Now that put the bad narcissistic trend of the decadent western world into perspective....
...An unfortunately the rest of the world seems to follow too... ;-(
Modest Mind, 02 May 20171080 is absolutely sufficient. Everything above is a total overkill, waste of battery and CPU power.I also believed in that theory, but after seeing how the S7 Edge with 2K screen got a near 100h Endurance Rating, I don't think it's impossible to get the same or better, given SD835 is about 14% more efficient than SD820/821 because of smaller FinFET processing
1080p would be reasonable for upper budget phones
iPnos, 02 May 2017It's the opposite. The main (rear) camera is 12 MP f/1.7 and the selfie one is 16 MP f/2.0. (s... moreYou're right, of course. I still think it's weird when the selfie cam has a higher resolution than the main cam (even though many phones do it).
