HTC Said to Plan New One Phone With Larger Screen, Better Camera

HTC Corp. plans a March release for the latest version of its HTC One smartphone featuring a larger screen and twin-sensor rear camera, according to a person with direct knowledge of the plans.

Carrying the HTC One name, the new model will use Qualcomm Inc.’s later Snapdragon processor and have a screen size of at least 5 inches, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public. The design will be little changed from last year’s version of the One series, the person said.

A larger model called One Max and the start of sales to China Mobile Ltd. failed to stop HTC from posting its second consecutive quarterly operating loss. The new model, scheduled for release at the end of March, will be bigger than the One’s 4.7-inch display and smaller than the One Max’s 5.9-inch screen.

HTC, based in Taoyuan, Taiwan, declined to comment in an e-mail today.

Twin sensors on the rear of the new handset will provide better focus, depth of field and image quality, the person said. An improved version of HTC’s Ultrapixel camera will be featured in the device, the person said.
