The HTC One smartphone made headlines with its claims about 'ultrapixel technology,' which the company used to describe the device's 4MP CMOS sensor.

We put the HTC One's ultrapixels to the test

With its new flagship smartphone, the HTC One, the Taiwanese manufacturer is aiming to improve image quality over its rivals by using using fewer but larger pixels on a sensor that's the same size as the higher-resolution competition. However, the HTC One's advantages are not all about pixels -- the phone's camera also features optical image stabilization and a fast F2.0 lens.

Hands-on with the HTC One at the Mobile World Congress

While most smartphone manufacturers have opted for a 13MP camera module, HTC is going the opposite way in terms of sensor resolution, equipping the HTC One with a 4MP camera. However, the photodiodes that collect the light on the HTC's sensor module are similar in size to those found in enthusiast compact cameras such as the Canon Powershot G15, and as such, and HTC promises this will result in much better low-light performance than conventional smartphone cameras. We take a closer look at what HTC is calling 'ultrapixel' technology at

HTC takes new approach to sensor tech in latest flagship phone

Much ado has been made about the sensor technology rumored to debut along with HTC's newest handset launched today, the HTC One. While rumors of stacked sensors were predictably wide of the mark, HTC is taking a clever approach to improving camera phone quality by betting on fewer but larger pixels captured by a 4.0MP 1/3" sensor, which are similar in size to those found in enthusiast compact cameras, and which HTC is calling 'ultrapixels'. Combined with a fast F2.0 lens and optical image stabilization, the HTC One's specs hold promise for better low-light photography - an area where mobile phones have fallen notoriously short.

Talk of 'ultrapixels' leads to speculation about Foveon-like HTC smartphone

Early tech blog reports suggest HTC's much-anticipated 'M7' smartphone could have a Foveon-like layered sensor. All the information appears to stem from a Pocket-lint report about the phone, expected to be revealed at press events to be held in New York City and London on February 19. The suggestion is that the M7 could have a multi-layer sensor, rather than a conventional 13MP chip with a Bayer filter pattern. Foveon itself once tried to develop a sensor for smartphones and other companies are working on similar concepts. However, we wonder if the story comes from a translation error of Sony's 'Stacked CMOS' technology - which is used in a 13MP Exmor RS sensor.
