HTC Desire EYE is official, dual 13MP wide angle lenses on the front and back [VIDEO]


HTC Desire EYE Double Exposure

HTC’s Double Exposure event is off in full gear, with HTC’s VP of Industrial Design Jonah Becker taking the stage to officially unveil the all new HTC Desire EYE. The phone is a first of its kind, coming equipped with dual 13MP cameras (and colored LED flash) on both the back and front of the device. Aimed at the internet’s new obsession with selfies, the phone is sure to cater to the younger crowd.

Although it’s definitely not the first we’re seeing of the device (there have been quite a few leaks tipping us off to the device’s existence beforehand) we now have a solid spec sheet for those wondering about its raw hardware capabilities. Check ’em out down below.

HTC Desire EYE specs

  • 5.2-inch screen
  • 2.3GHz Quadcore processor (Snapdragon 801)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB onboard memory
  • MicroSD slot
  • Zero Gap Construction
  • Front camera: 22 millimeter SLR equivalent
  • Rear camera: 28 millimeter SLR equivalent
  • 2400 mAh battery

HTC EYE Experience

HTC is also giving the camera app itself an overhaul, with their new “EYE Experience” coming preloaded on the device out of the box. The camera software suite features a handful of useful new “selfie” features, like split capture (taking a photo using both front and rear cameras), face tracking for video calls, and even screen capture should you want to share something stored on your device.

Can’t wait to get your hands on the HTC Desire EYE? The phone will be launching later this year as an AT&T exclusive. Now we don’t feel so bad about the HTC One E8 not launching outside of Sprint. The Desire EYE should make for a nice replacement.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

Google could be considering adding app and game trials to the Google Play Store

  1. Im personally more interested in that portable camera that looked like a camera in a pvc pipe that was teased before this.

  2. That’s it?

  3. ..for the wide angle ego

  4. Not everyone seems excited but this will become much more popular than the 4mp M8. In fact it leaves little to desire (pun intended). Maybe a replaceable battery or waterproofing, but this takes away the biggest minus from HTC’s flagship. I really hope this is the beginning of an HTC revival.

  5. Phone doesn’t have that premium look

  6. Looks cool… More interested to see what software enhancements they’ll include for Sense

  7. Screw AT&T and their exclusives!!!!!
