After the teaser featuring the design elements of the HTC M10, the company turns towards to its cameras. The company made a tweet which’s text reads “World First, World Class, Front and Back. You’ll see.”
Apart from the text, the attached image boasts two camera lenses with sliver accents on their outer edges.
Apparently the upcoming smartphone will be featuring a dual camera system similar to the one used in HTC One M8. Though it should be noted that the previously used Duo Camera setup in the M8 worked in a completely different manner. One lens was dedicated to detect the depth of the captured scene while the other lens single handedly took the photo.
Keeping in view the current technology being used in the major flagships, HTC will be changing the purpose of the Dual camera setup as compared to M8. The equal sized lens in the image leads to a conclusion that both lenses will be used for image capture.
HTC states that it’s bringing “World First” tech to the new device, which could be hinting towards a setup similar to the Samsung Gear 360 or the LG 360 Cam. These cameras can record 360-degree footage with two wide-angle lenses on polar opposite sides, which is then complied together via software to make a VR-ready video.
Judging from the hype and the teasers, the HTC 10 could actually be the “World First” 360-degree capturing smartphone that could be capable of feeding video straight to the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, or any other capable headset, for VR viewing. HTC One M10 (aka HTC Perfume) is scheduled to be unveiled on April 19. We will be updating you with all the developments on the topic, so stay tuned.
