HTC has been working on its Ultrapixel camera technology and its latest flagship One (M8) boasts Duo camera setup, which essentially uses two cameras to click photos with depth of field. With this forthcoming device, HTC seems to be targeting the selfie crazy users, who require a good front camera. Other companies too are taking advantage of this selfie craze, with ZTE s Nubia X6 boasting a 13-megapixel front camera, and the forthcoming Nokia Superman set to become the first smartphone in the Finnish company s portfolio to feature a 5-megapixel selfie camera.
