I’ve oft wondered how long it’d take for a smartphone manufacturer to up the resolution and quality of their front facing cameras. As someone who spends far too much time on Instagram, I’m forced to look at grainy, blurry, and horribly noisy images from ladies who insist on using their mediocre front facing cameras, simply so they can frame that perfect selfie.
With the upcoming HTC M8 (aka One Plus, One Two), HTC could usher in the age of the glorious high-resolution seflie. According to ROM developer @LlabTooFeR, HTC could be upgrading the front facing 2.1MP camera of the original HTC One to a whopping 5MP. I always thought Apple would be the first to go this route, but I have to admit, it’s definitely nice to see yet another Android OEM get the jump on them.
Of course, this is still unconfirmed mind you, but LlabTooFeR has a pretty good track record about this kinda stuff. Tell the ladies, the HTC M8 might be their pick for 2014.
