The HTC One X is one of the few phones from the Taiwanese maker to sport a stunning camera. The 8MP f/2.0 lens on the handset is accompanied by a pretty decent camera software as well, that offers plenty of options to tweak for advance users, without confusing the newbies.
However, it looks like HTC will be tweaking the One X camera app a bit with the upcoming Sense 4.1 update for the handset. A member over at XDA forums has managed to get his hands on the leaked camera apk from a Sense 4.5 ROM. Considering that the Android 4.0.4 update for the One X will bring Sense 4.1 with it, I assume he is a bit confused here.
Anyways, the leaked camera apk has the following changes as noted by an XDA user -:
* Front / rear camera selection is now an icon in the main UI, not hidden at the top of the setup menu
* Vertical instead of horizontal zoom bar (easier to adjust, but less fine-grained; still pointless because it is only digital zoom)
* Scene modes are now not listed separately under Camera Scenes, but grouped under ‘Scene selection’ entry (less scrolling but one extra tap to get to them)
* Either there’s a new Normal scene mode, or more likely Auto has just been renamed Normal
* Aspect and resolution are now combined into a single option, rather than separate options
* Blue instead of green highlight
To install this leaked Sense 4.1 camera apk, users must have root access on their phone and should be running a Sense based ROM. The CWM flashable zip file with an enhanced media_profiles file can be found here.
