HTC will be unveiling a new smartphone on October 20. Invites are already out but that’s still three weeks away from today. Before a new phone arrives, HTC has revealed the ‘HTC One M9+ Supreme Camera Edition’. Obviously, it’s a special edition ‘HTC One M9+‘. The latter is one improved ‘HTC One M9‘ so you can say this already the third iteration of the One M9 which we all know didn’t really sell.
The term “Supreme Camera” obviously means this one has a better camera than the ordinary One M9+–can even be considered as “super”. This one now comes with three kinds of autofocus. The phone’s “3-in-1 fusion focus” feature replaces the secondary camera with laser autofocus found on the previous HTC One M9 and One M9+.
The HTC One M9+ Supreme Camera boasts of specs similar to the One M9+: 5.2-inch QHD display, 32GB built-in storage, 3GB RAM, MediaTek MT6795T Helio X10 chipset, front-facing BoomSound speakers, and 2840 mAh battery.
This Supreme Camera edition from HTC features the usual things like phase detection, autofocus, optical image stabilization (OIS), 21 megapixel camera, and dual-LED flash. The two cameras are already impressive but the new system is said to combine the three autofocus technologies—delivering 0.1 second focus speed.
No word if this special camera edition will be available in the US and other parts of the world but for now, it’s exclusive to its native Taiwan.
