HTC recently announced their selfie centric devices, the HTC Desire Eye and the HTC RE Camera.
The HTC Desire Eye is a 5.2 inch smartphone that sports a 13 megapixel (yes you read that right) front camera. The selfie-rific (sorry) front camera has an aperture of f/2.2 and a 20mm lens, while the rear facing camera has a f/2.0 and a 28mm lens. Their trademark BoomSound speakers are still there, and, as an added bonus, the Desire Eye has an IPX 7 rating making it water resistant of up to 1m for half an hour.
The rest of the specs include a Snapdragon 801 CPU, 2GB of RAM, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, NFC, 16GB of storage (+microSD up to 128GB), a 2,400mAh battery, and runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
The HTC RE Camera is a handheld camera that looks like a little periscope or a high tech asthma inhaler. It is equipped with a 16 megapixel Sony DSC sensor, with a 146-degree field of view. The RE Camera is compatible with both Android and iOS.
Both HTC offerings look mighty interesting. Personally, I’m curious about the RE Camera. But the two questions that needs to be asked is this: Are you interested? And would you want one?
