HTC unveils the selfie-tastic Desire Eye with a 13MP front camera
We all knew that HTC was very likely to be announcing a new photography-based phone, but while the rumours indicated that it was a new version of the HTC One M8, we have ended up with a brand new phone: the HTC Desire Eye with an astonishing 13MP front-facing camera.
Because megapixels aren’t everything, the front camera also comes with zoom, auto focus, a BSI sensor , f/2.2, 22mm wide-angle lens, 1080p video capturing, and dual-LED flash. The rear camera is similar, but with a a f/2.0, 28mm lens. Both cameras come with HTC Camera Software perks including Screen Share, Split Capture, Auto Selfie, Voice Selfie, and Crop Me in functionality.
The phone itself comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 2,400 mAh battery, and microSD expansion up to 128GB.
There’s no word on price, but the Desire Eye comes in a plastic chassis, rather than the metal of the One M8, and will start shipping to the UK sometime next month.

The strength of the Desire Eye isn’t in its 13MP cameras but its unibody design and flagship-baiting specifications. The excellent screen and front-facing speakers mean this handset punches above its weight.
