HTC One delays down to slow camera production

HTC has stated the delay to its flagship HTC One handset is down to slow camera production

 

The delays to the flagship HTC One are a result of slow camera production, according to the Taiwanese company.

Eager phone users looking forward to getting their hands on HTC's new flagship smartphone have had to wait several weeks for the phone to arrive, and now we know why.

"Our friends in the media have been asking why there has been a delay in shipments for the new HTC One, whether there is a component shortage," Benjamin Ho, HTC's chief marketing officer told the Wall Street Journal.

"There is some shortage, because the phone's camera was designed specifically for us, and production cannot be ramped up so quickly."

The HTC One has been well received by the tech world, with the camera gaining special attention for its use of "ultrapixels" - larger pixels that let more light into pictures and make for a better low-light performance.

Using ultrapixels rather than simply ramping up the number of megapixels on board gave the HTC One something different to shout about and has been praised by reviewers. Read our own review of the HTC One right here.

The phone is planned to arrive in the UK this week and can be yours, SIM free, for £520.
