HTC Teaser Suggests HTC One Smartphone Could Support Canon Lenses

HTC Teaser

Next Tuesday (2/19 2013) HTC is supposed to announce their new flagship smartphone, the HTC One. Since some time, they are teasing specs and features of the smartphone via Twitter. Yesterday they tweeted the image you see above. You can see the date of the announcement in green letters around the edge of the lens. The brand name is blurred out but it is easily identifiable as a Canon 50mm lens.

What does the teaser suggest? Speculation is that the HTC One could support a DSLR camera lens add-on. The image shows a Canon lens. Will the HTC One be able to use Canon lenses? A handset with interchangeable lenses?

    What are you daft? Did you actually read what you just wrote. The idea that some twit would spend money on canon glass an then stick it on a piece of plastic, besides the obvious physical absurdity, is just absurd.

    HTC is just going to market a camera phone and saythat is produces DSLR results…that’s all.

    Sounds like a gimmick to me. There are people out there that would by It. Probably the same ones that use their full size ipads to shoot video at sporting events. Just silliness to me.

    Makes no sense whatsoever. Why would you stick a honking SLR lens on an itty-bitty smart phone? Defeats the purpose of both.

    Anyone considered that the lens used in the phone could have been designed by canon? Rather than being able to use canon lenses. Or maybe the phone lens has an f/1.8 aperture. Maybe even hinting at a 50mm focal length.
