I just noticed the "HDR Microphone" is now missing from the specs of the One:
http://www.htc.com/uk/smartphones/htc-one/#specs

Checked other regional sites and it's the same situation. I don't have a screenshot of previous specs but I could swear it was there. Can you guys confim it was there?

And if they removed it - it's interesting why? Because they expect future revisions coming without it because of this Nokia/STM case?

That's me never sending my phone back to HTC for a repair then.

They'll have to have a certain amount in stock so that they can repair any handsets already supplied to the public I think...

Just noticed your location, Bangor in the UK?

But if this is really the case and they won't be putting these HDR mics in the future I would expect a clear statement from HTC. I know this might be uncomfortable for them but they should be clear about it so we know what we're buying. This really is a great device so honestly I hope they manage to obtain similar MIC technology and will put it into the One.

yes I believe it'd be the STM case. I think they're revising the technology so hopefully they come up with something

I was quite sure it was connected with this Nokia/STM case, but now they removed this from the specs so the most important question is what kind of MIC they will be putting into the One once the current stock from STM is depleted?

replacement mics will no doubt be interchangeable with the STM ones. Whether or not the mic will be like for like that remains to be seen but on the onset, it appears could be non HDR....

btw how do you test the HDR ability of the mic.... when im talking on the phone and its pretty windy, the other person can still hear the noisy wind - i thought the HDR mic would cancel all that out...i have an early april build btw

Yeah don't panic to be honest, all they have to do is find a like for like part (one that wasn't especially made for the Nokia 720)

Where? If you go to http://www.htc.com/uk/smartphones/htc-one/#specs there's no mention. I've read your PDF but can't see it on the page when I go there.

Added a screenshot of the HDR mic(Before they removed it.)

I really doubt they'll be able to add another HDR mic on it though... As the patent is not the chipset but what the chipset brings or what makes it unique.
