After seeing the below video posted by HTC, it’s a pretty clear the company will introduce an action camera. We’ve heard multiple rumors suggesting as much but, I mean, the video doesn’t really hide this fact. Invites for HTC’s upcoming event already hinted at a camera-focused event, and this video seems to confirm as much.
“Something remarkable is coming,” the video teases before showing clips of daily life around New York City; people playing soccer, jumping in pools, playing music, taking selfies. One thing that’s consistent with the footage is the camera used to shoot the video. It’s no GoPro, but it’s close.
The soon to be named device seems to feature a really wide lens, time lapse capabilities, and also an option to shoot in slow motion. Beyond that there’s not much to discern from the under 40 second clip. We don’t get a look at the device’s design, nor do we know the price. But HTC seems confident it has a winner on its hands.
A previous Bloomberg report said the HTC device would be “tube-shaped” and feature a 16-megapixel sensor. It’ll be platform agnostic, too, which means it’ll be able to sync up with your Apple or Android device through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. We’ll find out what the company has to share at its Oct. 8 event.
