Like taking pictures? Like taking selfies? If you checked yes on both of those, HTC’s next phone might be for you, and as luck would have it, you’ll even find it on shelves soon enough, too.
Australians sure are spoiled for choice when it comes to smartphones, and those of you that dig a selfie or two will have a new model to look at shortly sporting a 13 megapixel camera on each side — yes, front and back — of the smartphone.
It’s called the “Eye” because this one is all about pictures, and with dual 13 megapixel cameras with a flash on each side, hopes to really make a mark on people who can’t live without taking photos and sharing them with the world.
The new smartphone sports some of the specs seen on HTC’s flagship One (M8) from earlier in the year, including the quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, microSD slot for expanding this, 4G LTE connectivity, GPS, Near-Field Communication, Bluetooth 4.0 with AptX, and a Full HD screen which on this smartphone will sit at 5.2 inches.
The 13 megapixel camera on each side is new, though, with the rear camera featuring a low-aperture of f/2.0 at an equivalent of 28mm for 35mm cameras, while the front camera is wide at an equivalent o 22mm and running with f/2.2.
Both cameras will feature a dual LED flash alongside them, and both will capture video at Full HD 1080p, with a dedicated camera button found on the hardware.
