We encountered an error while trying to save the changes. We've made a note of it, and we'll fix the problem as soon as possible.
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.
With the rear camera out, we find two small ICs hiding on the camera's ribbon cable:
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.
