HTC One’s dual-membrane microphones detailed
HTC has gathered all its latest and greatest technology into a single new smartphone, and that’s the HTC One. Expected to be launched around the world starting this month (March), the handset brings several novelties, including Sense 5 UI, and an Ultrapixel rear camera.
What you may not know is that the HTC One also comes with built-in “dual-membrane” MEMS microphones.
According to HTC, other smartphones nowadays have single-membrane microphones, which don’t allow them to record sound at a high quality in all situations (especially when the audio volume is high). HTC seemingly solves the problem with its dual-membrane microphone that enables one membrane to focus on high-sensitivity, and the other one on high sound pressure. This should make the HTC One a perfect, distortion-free recording device, even in extremely loud environments like concerts.
Sporting a 4.7 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display with 469ppi, the HTC One runs Android Jelly Bean, and features LTE, NFC, a quad-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB / 64GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 2,300 mAh Li-Po battery.
As previously reported, the HTC One will be the company’s sole handset to bear the “One” brand this year – unlike in 2012, when we had multiple One devices (from high-end to low-end).
