HTC One successor leaks, dual cameras and a Midas touch of gold

Later this quarter, HTC will be announcing the successor to the HTC One. But, if you don’t feel like waiting, a press shot of the device has leaked and is posted above for your viewing pleasure.

The phone resembles the existing HTC One in nearly every aspect but the dual cameras on the back offers up a new feature that has yet to make its way to a mainstream device.

Currently, it is expected that the device will have a 5in screen, a ‘high end’ Snapdragon CPU and of course, the dual cameras on the rear of the device.

Why would you want dual cameras on the back of the device? Well, we aren’t exactly sure but we would bet that HTC has some reasons tucked away in a slideshow that will be revealed in March.

There are a couple options for having two cameras; one could be to allow for high quality images by utilizing two sensors to capture the light. More so, with two lenses, depending on the scene that you are trying to capture, having two pieces of glass to choose from could help take higher quality pictures depending on the scenario.

The device is clearly clad in a gold color but we would bet that there are other color options, such as silver, in the pipeline too.

With about a month to go until the reveal, we will likely learn even more about this device through unofficial channels, as press images are generally the tip of the iceberg before the specs leak.

didn't they hear? rose is the new gold.
I tried shopping for a new watch for my fiancee and all I can see on offer are rose colored watches.

I think the original one looks a lot lot better tbh.

The excessively rounded corners look out of place and that gold is extremely tacky.

Not gonna lie, I like it. Would not buy it, I would prefer aluminum looking version.

Now that you mention it, I don't like them either. Looks cheap. High end models don't usually have them.

Horrible, horrible looking piece of phone

Awesome awesome piece of phone... although I prefer a "piece" of cheese

Outside of the gold color, how? Not seeing any similarities.

Meh - too much vertical bezel, offset top speaker, and on screen buttons. The HTC One was a superb phone, so I hope this is a big money maker for HTC - they really need it.

I wish. Would love this not to run Android...

Microsoft were in talks with HTC for them to simply put windows on their Android devices, seeing as they run identical hardware. However this leaked phone has onscreen buttons, so they'd have to launch a separate model with physical buttons for it to run WP.

Windows Phone is getting software buttons in the next update I heard

Didn't a leak show Windows Phone with on screen buttons?

Ah yes I hadn't seen that, you are correct. I don't think HTC gave them an answer though. It would save money on not having to design a second phone.

That's what I was thinking...maybe one of the lenses has a really low F1.8 and the other is more of a panoramic lens with a high Fstop?
