Why is the HTC One Receiving a New Microphone?

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – The HTC One just arrived, but there’s already talk it’ll feature something new (If that doesn’t set a record, we’re not sure what does!).

According to a report from Gotta Be Mobile which cited FOSSPatents, the flagship HTC smartphone is receiving a new microphone.

But it’s not due to a cool, new technology feature like you might suspect (or even a flaw…). It’s actually because a court found that STMicroelectronics was only supposed to sell the HTC One’s current microphone to Nokia (per an agreement).

Sounds like someone dropped the ball on this one!

The HTC One was released just last month and so far, has received solid reviews.
