HTC is all set to unveil its next-generation flagship phone on March 25 in New York, and all rumors point out at its dual-camera sensors located on the rear side.
A new leaked image from @evleaks, once again, shows off a dual sensor camera right at the back of HTC One 2 smartphone.
The HTC M8 has been tipped before, but this time around a close up shot of the dual sensor rear-facing camera may captivate your mind.
A tweet from @evleaks read, "Up close with the HTC M8 cameras."
Well, it seems that the alleged close-up shot of the HTC One 2's dual-sensor rear-facing shooter depicts Lytro-style camera and more.
Talking about the whole setup, you can see a large camera sensor, expected to offer a same 4-megapixel UltraPixel resolution as the HTC One. Also, add a smaller 2-megapixel UltraPixel camera sensor, just above the main 4MP camera.
Rumor has it that the smaller 2MP camera sensor will be allowed to adjust the background of a photograph with a help of an app.
Aside from the dual sensors, you will also notice dual-LED Flash set up used in the handset. The set up is similar to the True Tone flash used in the iPhone 5S.
Dual Sensor rear-facing camera theory
The phone, HTC One 2, will be the first phone to feature a dual sensor rear-facing camera. At CES 2014, Japan's Toshiba announced its "first dual camera module". The dual camera module will simultaneously output recorded images and depth data for smartphones, tablets and mobile devices, as per Toshiba claims.
In simple language, Toshiba's dual camera module (TCM9518MD) allows you to tweak the focus after you have snapped a picture--just snap a picture and adjust the focus later on. The sensor can only take pictures in 5MP, and we're not sure whether HTC will use Toshiba made dual sensor camera module or not.
