HTC Shows Off ImageSense Technology With Sample HTC One Images

There is little question that HTC is going “all in” with their new HTC One lineup and by all accounts, HTC’s newest devices seem a step ahead of the current market. With dual and quad-core technology, HD displays, Android 4.0, HTC’s newest devices have our complete Android attention. However, there is one key factor truly separating these devices from the rest of the pack — their camera. To help make the HTC One lineup stand out, HTC has equipped their new lineup with f/2.0 aperture, a 28mm lens, HTC ImageChip, BSI Sensors and a smart LED flash with five levels of brightness. Add in a 0.7 second shot time and 0.2-second autofocus and you’ve got a serious smartphone camera on-board.

“With ImageSense HTC One rivals traditional digital cameras with improvements to every part of the camera, including the lens, the sensor, the software, and even integrating a new custom HTC ImageChip.”

So what else will make HTC’s One camera line-up standout?

  • The Superfast Capture: As we just mentioned, HTC reduced the amount of time it takes to capture a shot, to just 0.7 seconds. With 0.2 second autofocus, you can take almost unlimited continuous shots by just holding down the shutter button.
  • Good photos in bad lighting: HTC has improved image quality in low light, no light or bright backlighting. The f/2.0 lens on the HTC One X and HTC One S captures 40% more light than the f/2.4 lenses available on other high-end smartphones.
  • Video Pic: Want to capture a photo and shoot video at the same time? Good, because HTC is introducing this feature. Tap the shutter button while recording video and you will capture a high-resolution still photo while the phone continues to record your video. Sound good?

So how does all of this actually translate to real-world photography? Check the gallery below and tell us what you think.
