HTC One successor to have camera with switchable lenses

HTC had a rather forgettable 2013, with market share hovering between a paltry 3% and 4%. The Taiwanese smartphone giant would hope to improve upon this with the launch of the upcoming HTC One Two aka HTC M8.

Reports coming in from Taiwan suggest that this HTC One successor will have a switchable lens camera. In layman terms, users will be able to switch between a pair of lenses for low-light and high-light situations respectively. This might also provide a playground for 3rd-party accessory junkies. HTC previously showed keen interest in pleasing shutterbugs by including a 4 mega-pixel ‘UltraPixel’ camera in the HTC One. Other features expected on the HTC M8 are – 4.9-inch 1080p/1440p display, Snapdragon 800/805 processor, 3GB RAM, fingerprint reader, 10 mega-pixel UltraPixel camera, and a 3000mAh battery.
