HTC Hinting A More Refined Camera Experience For 2013, The Ultrapixel Is Born

HTC is somewhat hinting some new camera technology which will rival the 808Pureview in an official blog post about photography. On the very end of the blog post they said that they are kicking off a new sound and camera experience this year. They also quoted that the 808 Pureview with its 41MP sensor causes one reviewer to note that this wont help you at all. The device in which will debut this new experience by HTC is most probably the HTC M7. According to pocket-lint the camera on the M7 is no ordinary camera as it will feature ultra pixels. This pretty much means camera wars and we'll just have to see what Nokia has to reveal at MWC which is pureview related. 
HTC is to use a new camera sensor on its much-rumoured HTC M7 smartphone, Pocket-lint can confirm, which will use what the company calls Ultrapixels.The new camera will instead be made up of three 4.3-megapixel sensor layers combined to give a resulting single image. Three lots of 4.3 may add up to around 13-megapixels, but images from HTC’s latest won’t be output at that larger size.The technique, similar to that used by Sigma in the Foveon X3 sensor, means that three lots of data can represent one final pixel. All that extra data can be intelligently “combined” to generate a crisper, cleaner image and – in the case of the Foveon sensor – better colour accuracy.The technique is also close to the way Nokia can handle image data with the camera in the 808 PureView, or Fujifilm’s EXR system in its compact cameras – but both companies opt for a more conventional sensor structure and use surrounding pixels to render one equivalent in a final image rather than the multiple-layered structure HTC is said to have opted for.
