When Google announced the Nexus 6P and 5X at an event in San Francisco back in September last year, they talked a lot about the camera, which is placed in each of smartphones, calling it the best that they have ever used.
One important area of work was the fact that the sensor pixels captured in 1.55 micron pixels, which meant that he could capture more light in larger pixels and thus the need for optical image stabilization was absent.
Although Google has not announced the model of the camera, it was known that they used the 12.3-megapixel sensor from Sony, and after the conference, it became known that the new Nexus placed sensor Sony IMX377.
Now known insider @LlabTooFeR in his Twitter account, said that HTC is going to equip its future flagship 12-megapixel Sony IMX377 sensor that captures the pixel size of 1.55 microns, but unlike the Nexus, the M10 will be equipped with laser autofocus, phase autofocus and optical stabilization Images.
HTC Perfume “UltraPixels”:
Main Camera – Sony IMX377 12MP 1.55um + Laser Autofocus + PDAF
Front Camera – Samsung s5k4e6 5MP UltraPixel

Previous rumors have hinted that the One M10 has a 12-megapixel shooter, and while HTC are planning to use brand markentingovy UltraPixel, in reality it is the same camera that the new Nexus.
And it is quite consistent, since HTC One M7 and M8 cameras use sensors that captured pixels 2 microns. HTC has, you might say, pioneered the idea of capturing more light, more pixels in smartphones a few years ago, but they just suffered a setback in the implementation, because the 4-megapixel camera is not suitable for most applications.
The Sony, in turn, created a shooter that does the same as the HTC camera, only on a larger resolution, so it is understandable why HTC decided to use the products of the Japanese company.
