HTC One M8 EYE with 13MP camera now available for pre-order in China, launches Oct 15th


HTC One M8 EYE China

There was one device we were surprised to find no mention of during HTC’s Double Exposure event yesterday — the HTC One M8 EYE. Leaked back towards the beginning of this month, the phone was a modified version of HTC’s One M8, only it traded the 4MP OmniVision OV4688 camera sensor, for a 13MP Sony IMX214 (the same camera as the newly announced HTC Desire EYE).

Well, it seems the One M8 EYE is now official, with the phone just popping up out of nowhere on HTC’s Chinese website without an official announcement or press release. Just like the HTC Desire EYE, HTC puts their new EYE Experience camera front and center on the landing page, supplying an October 15th launch date and pricing of about $652.

Unless you currently reside in China don’t grab your wallet just yet — we don’t imagine this will arrive stateside anytime soon.
