There is no respite for the weary—even the rear camera is coated in copper shielding.

This is the HTC UltraPixel camera, a f/2.0 aperture, 28 mm lens unit with a dedicated HTC ImageChip™ 2.

Chipworks found it to be a 4MP backside-illuminated sensor made by ST Microelectronics.

515M 2L22 JP

IY21 3001D1 L1250A

Manufacturing such a small camera that can do so much is a hefty task, and a shortage of these units is a big reason why HTC has had to delay the official launch.
