HTC One detailed in another leaked video prior to release

Another full-length video has leaked courtesy of user Hans Meyer on Youtube. The new HTC One will be announced tomorrow at a press conference in New York. But, before the official announcement the leaked video (which is in German) gives a detailed look at the familiar handset. While the video does not deep dive into specifications it does give a great general overview of the device including some interesting features of the dual-camera.

This feature can be seen in detail at the seven minute mark where he shows the focus shifting capabilities of the HTC One. It seems like the dual-camera is meant to allow users to correct the focus after the picture has been taken. This works in a similar fashion to Nokia Refocus application that can be found on current Lumia handsets. Another neat camera trick is the ability to transform any photo into a 3D image. This can be seen at the 8:35 mark, which gives the user the capability to transform a 2D image into a 3D one. Although the effects look minimal in the video, I'm sure when experienced in person the effect is more impressive. Although I'm not sure how much functionality or day-to-day use this feature would have on a standard user, but it is interesting nonetheless. 

The video goes into further detail about a couple of other features including a power saving mode and extreme power saving mode. Once extreme power saving mode is activated a simplified UI is presented to the user with options for calls, messaging, email, calendar, and calculator. The HTC One will debut at an event tomorrow in New York at 8a.m. PST.
