    HTC One Will Supposedly Ship in Limited Quantities due to UltraPixel Camera Tech


    According to a new report, HTC may end up shipping a great deal fewer of their new HTC One phone than they would like to. Apparently, the limited quantities of the device will be due to their new UltraPixel camera technology. Several of the critical components needed for the new camera are having low-yield issues at the parts suppliers. Here's a quote with some of the specifics,

    On Wednesday, a Taiwanese brokerage company KGI securities, slashed its HTC One shipment estimates by a considerable fraction down to 10.5 million units shipped to retailers and carriers during the first half of 2013. It previously predicted 15 million HTC One units to be shipped over the same period. The cause of this are said to be underwhelming yields of several crucial components, one of them being the camera module for the smartphone's UltraPixel camera. As a side note, the HTC One uses a custom-built module with 4 megapixels of resolution and optical image stabilization, which despite its relatively low pixel count promises to deliver great image and video quality due to the increased pixel size. Another component that's in short supply is the voice coil motor, according to the source.
    This is certainly more bad news for a company that has had nothing but bad news for quite some time. Of course, in this instance it looks like it was external forces outside of their control. Still, what's it going to take to shake HTC out of this funk?
