HTC One must impress you, which will be launched in March. The HTC One is said officially to own an iPhone-similar appearance, the awesome technical specs that can compete with Nexus 4, and the highlight is the awesome UltraPixel camera .As we know, the popular camera is 13MP,but the UltraPixa camera is only 4 MP. So what is really an UltraPixal? Let’s explore it.
Misconceptions: Higher Megapixels, Higher quality
When customers seem to believe higher Megapixels produce higher quality, but in fact, Megapixels don't affect photo quality as much as the average consumer believes. And other factors including lighting, sensor quality, and image processing software play a critical role in determining photo quality in today’s world.
At this time, UltraPixel is as a way for HTC to change the common sense of people and prove that a 4 megapixel lens can beat cameras with MP ratings that are twice as high.
Capture more light and data
When a camera takes a photograph, its sensor groups millions of pixels together to form an image. And the more light the camera can capture, the better photos can be taken.
Before manufacturers try to make the camera get more light with higher megapixels. But the UltraPixel sensor of HTC One tries to raise the size of individual pixels rather than raise the pixel count via larger pixel sizes, that means, a pixel take up more space that can capture more light and information, as much as three times more, according to HTC -than the typical smartphone.
Besides, the sensor size is equivalent to the sensor size found on other 8MP or 13MP smartphone cameras. HTC also emphasized that the UltraPixel camera do better in low-light conditions and shutter speeds than other smartphones.
But what is this “UltraPixel” anyway?
We know, both Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One use a 1/3-inch (0.85-cm) sensor. Nokia has given 8.7 MP on the sensor, while HTC has deployed only 4.3 MP. So,the size of an individual pixel on Lumia 920′s camera sensor is 1.4 µm, while the size of the same pixel on One’s sensor is 2.0 µm. That is what HTC so passionately refers to as an “UltraPixel”.
UltraPixel is Trends on Smarphone?
When HTC One has firstly introduced the new UltraPixel concept, people may be confused about it, but when it is used by customer and proved to be better than the traditional, so will it be the trends on smartphones? I think it should well be the case. But don’t worry, just wait, time is the best witness.
