Two days ago, when Motorola released the Razr folding screen phone, in addition to the “advanced” flexible screen, with the current technology to re-inscribe the Razr V3 that year also let many consumers feel full of feelings, nostalgia. And it’s just Motorola that makes consumers feel more than just One.
In the early years of Android’s boom, it was different from the current consumer discussion about whether to buy Huawei or Samsung, when consumers wanted to buy a high-end Android phone and talkaboutd about buying Motorola or HTC (and, of course, Samsung LG).
E.e.m., Drew Bamford, the current head of HTC Creative Labs, asked an interesting question on Twitter, “What Classic @htc will will phone you like to see us back now with ‘technology’.” That means if HTC is going to re-carve a phone that year, and use the current hardware configuration and technology, which one you’ll want to see.
In response, the comments from netizens as well as foreign media editors were the HTC One X. The One X is the first generation of HTC’s proposed streamlined product line to make a boutique product, equipped with a 4.7-inch SLCD 2 “giant screen” and the world’s first quad-core processor, The Nvita Tegra 3, all-formed polycarbonate material seamless body design, surface matte treatment, Behind an 8-megapixel camera, the camera flagship at the time, and HTC introduced the use of side-recording video for the camera…
In addition, the highest voice is the HTC One M7. The model is the second since the boutique plan was put in place, featuring a metal body design that was rare at the time, with excellent dual speakers on the front panel. The biggest controversy for the phone is the many chins on the front and the 4-megapixel Ultrapixels technology camera behind it. For Ultrapixels technology cameras, HTC had an early idea of using “big bottoms” on mobile phones to upgrade the phone to take pictures, using a larger area of photo sensitive elements to capture more light intake, in order to achieve clearer photos, color is more realistic purposes.
At the time, the Ultrapixels technology camera used on the One M7 phone had a single pixel size of 2 m. Compared to the average 13-megapixel smartphone, which uses 1.12 m pixels, UltraPixel’s pixel area of 2 m (4 m) is more than three times that of a normal phone (1.2544 m), i.e. the amount of light per pixel can reach more than 300% of a normal 13-megapixel smartphone.
However, at that time the vast majority of consumers are concerned about the number of megapixels such a parameter, for the bottom is not big or nothing, can be used to describe without caring. And this put to today, there are manufacturers again and again to science. More deadly, there was a pan-purple problem with the HTC One M7’s camera performance that year…
The impact of the HTC One M7’s metal body design can be even greater than its “leading” camera technology, bringing the plastic age of smartphones directly to the aluminum age. Come to think of it, didn’t there in the past few years still boast of using an all-metal all-in-one body design for handset manufacturers?
Oh, yes, the HTC One M7 is the last HTC phone with a built-in Beats sound and standard Beats headset.
So, if HTC wants to recreate a classic model of the year with today’s hardware and technology, which one would you like to see? Change the front to a full-screen design, keep dual speakers (hidden), and other one M7 elements, and I’ll make up the ticket.
