HTC have launched the long rumored Desire Eye smartphone at the Double Exposure press event in New York. It is premium mid range device in the Desire series with the main point of attraction being the two 13 MP cameras.
HTC also launched RE Camera, a “remarkable little camera” with a fresh form factor and intriguing specs.
The specs of Desire Eye are similar to the flagship One M8, with 5.2-inch Full HD LCD display, Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB of RAM. The only exception is the camera. While the rear camera can be considered somewhat a downgrade to 13 MP from the ultrapixel technology in the One M8, the front camera is a huge upgrade at 13 MP.
The front and rear cameras on the Desire Eye are almost identical in specifications, though the rear shooter benefits from a slightly better f-number.
HTC’s Zoe app has been integrated with RE Camera, allowing you to shoot, edit, and upload your videos to the cloud in record time.
HTC Desire Eye will go on sale from October. HTC has not revealed the price details of yet but it will be nearly same as the HTC One M8.
