HTC One HDR Mic dropped from spec sheet after Nokia case

We’ve wondered what HTC would do after a Dutch court banned it from using HDR Microphones in its oft-delayed One handset, and now we know. It looks like the company has quietly nixed references to the Nokia-developed component on its website, raising the possibility that the handsets currently being manufactured won’t have the STMicroelectronics unit on board. None of this should affect phones that are already on the market, but we’ve reached out to HTC to find out what this means for future One owners and will let you know more when we do.

[Thanks, Ted]

Update: HTC has issued a statement (in full, after the break) saying that the company is entitled to use its remaining supplies of STM’s HDR Microphones until they run out. At that point, it’ll use a different (“improved”) microphone design in future production runs.
