HTC Will Release Their First Action Cam - Which Can be Paired With Smartphones

Everyone may be abuzz about the wearable market but HTC has something else in the works, a wirelessly operated camera with great specs that could challenge GoPro at their own game.

A HTC insider revealed to Bloomberg that the company is working on a new camera with a 16 megapixel sensor and a 'tube-like' appearence. The camera will snyc to your smartphone over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth for control and also as a way to access and edit the material it shoots.

So far, this sounds like a combination of something like Sony's QX range of Wi-Fi cameras and the GoPro. The camera will have a wide angle lens to get the most out of action shooting but it also sounds like it might need a persistent phone connection to really work properly.

If so, its an odd choice for a camera that could be used in more adventuresome situations but we do like the idea of superior alternative cameras being introduced for phones. The QX cams take fantastic pictures, even if they're a little finnicky in use, so it's great to see other manufacturers realising that there's a limit to what you can do with a smartphone snapper.

We'll have more on HTC's new tech very soon, with the camera likely to be revealed at a Double Exposure event in New York on October the 8th.
