After Samsung and Microsoft and few other companies, HTC has now introduced its amazing selfie-focused smartphone named as HTC Desire Eye, the new smartphone is claimed to include one of the best front-facing cameras and it is water proof too. The HTC Desire Eye selfie-focused smartphone boasts of a front-facing camera with the same treatment as the rear camera. Both feature 13-megapixel sensors, and are both accompanied by dual-LED flash.
HTC Desire Eye also features an IPX7 rating, designed to resist immersion in water up to 1 metre for 30 minutes. Both the front-facing and rear cameras can shoot 1080p@30fps videos. The Desire Eye carries much better specs than most of the Desire family. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 801 chipset with 2GB RAM and runs Android 4.4 with the latest Sense software and two camera-centric apps – Eye Experience and the new Zoe.
Its new Split Capture function combines simultaneous photos and videos taken on the front and back cameras into one split-screen image or video, creating a new selfie experience. Crop-Me-In places you at the heart of the action by cropping you from the image or video taken with the front-facing camera and positioning it within the scene captured by the main camera.
