Users on Twitter claim it to be the first smartphone with optical image stabilization for the front-facing camera.

It's no secret that the upcoming HTC One M9 successor will have a focus on camera quality as one of its selling points based on the latest teaser video and hints from HTC representatives. The exact camera features should be unveiled this upcoming Tuesday when the Taiwanese manufacturer is expected to officially reveal the flagship smartphone. Until then, however, rumors continue to pour in on the unannounced device including a possible optical image stabilizer (OIS) for the front-facing camera.

Photobooth service hints at OIS for HTC 10 selfie cam on Twitter

According to a report on Phandroid.com, several photos have been tweeted from a US photobooth service snapped with the front-facing camera of the HTC 10. Comments from users claim that the smartphone will be using the world's first OIS selfie camera with the appropriate #powerof10 hash tags. Whether or not this is a marketing gimmick or a verified comment on the features of the upcoming HTC flagship is currently unknown.

Quality pictures from the HTC 10 front-facing camera

Meanwhile, tweets from Kisha Bari at @testingsmiles are no longer publicly available, but are still accessible via Google web caches. The tweets were of pictures taken with the front-facing camera on the HTC 10. Since Twitter compresses these full-size images before uploading, it is still difficult to assess the quality of the HTC 10 camera without obtaining the files directly from the phone.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
