HTC’s Blinkfeed and Ultrapixel camera headed to mid-range phones too

HTC's brand new One smartphone announced late last month certainly is impressive. While the hardware is great HTC added plenty to the software side to help improve their offering. Things like Blinkfeed, an Ultrapixel camera, and Zoe to name a few. While we've already confirmed HTC Sense 5 will hit the One X and a few others, HTC also looks to bring the features above to more devices.

According to the folks at Omio who spoke with HTC UK's man in charge, HTC will hopefully bring many of the awesome new features to their mid-range devices throughout 2013. Interestingly enough we've heard the HTC One will be the only "One" this year, but it looks like some mid-range phones are in the works with the same features on board.

While Blinkfeed (think Flipboard for your homescreen) is a deep part of Sense UI 5.0, we can expect other smartphones to enjoy the new social feature that get the update. Then most devices HTC release this year should all run Sense 5.0 and enjoy the same awesome experience. The same goes for the Ultrapxiel camera, although we're still not fully sure on that one - being a flagship feature and all.

The Ultrapixel camera relies on a better camera sensor, as well as the silicon inside the Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor. Since this is their only flagship, we're not sure what other devices will come with in terms of the processor. HTC's Imagechip works great with the Snapdragon S4 dual-core, so hopefully the Ultrapixel camera ships in some mid-range smartphones later this year. The hardware under the hood plays as much of a role as any with the camera technology, but it's safe to say HTC is looking to bring these new features to as many of their products as possible.
