HTC announces Desire Eye, the unrivaled selfie smartphone


HTC announces Desire Eye

People love taking selfies (self-portrait) with their smartphones, but sometimes the front-facing camera is not what you’re expecting it to be, and so, HTC made the Desire EYE, a somewhat mid-range smartphone equipped with 13MP camera sensor, at the back and in the front, always ready to snap high-res pictures and videos.

“Today, HTC is once again changing the way that people think about technology,” said Peter Chou, CEO, HTC Corporation.

The HTC Desire EYE has a 5.2-inch 1080p display, comes packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and the same Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC Sense 6.0 UI experience as the HTC One M8 flagship. In addition the Desire EYE comes with what HTC calls the “Eye Experience” (photography software package), which will come eventually to the entire One series – HTC One (M7), One E8, One mini, One mini 2, HTC One Max, and some of the more recent Desire series phones like the HTC Desire 816, HTC Desire 820, as well as on the HTC Butterfly 2 in following months.



“Back in 1997, we allowed people to leave their laptops at home in favour of powerful, pocket-sized smartphone computing. Today we are taking a similar leap forward. Combining incredible hardware with unrivalled software, HTC is reinventing the way we think about imaging. We are taking you out from behind the viewfinder and putting you back where you belong, at the heart of the action.”

HTC hasnt said anything about Desire EYE price tag, however, we are expecting it to hit sale for around 3 to £400 in the United Kingdom.
