AT&T-bound HTC 'Eye' tipped to be the ultimate selfie phone, coming in Q4
Like it or not, when leakster-extraordinaire evleaks speaks, the industry listens. That's what an impeccable track record in a field filled with unknowns does for you.
Well, evleaks has spoken, and the latest intel he provides is actually rather intriguing. According to the tipster, HTC is in the process of developing a new handset, codenamed 'Eye', which is set for release during Q4 this year, and will appear on at least one major US carrier -- AT&T. The name is apparently no coincidence, by the way, as the manufacturer is said to be looking to position it among the very best 'selfie' smartphones on the market. No joke, that's a thing now, or, rather, it may very soon be. As to what exactly constitutes an industry-leading selfie phone, we'd have to wait and see. That said, we suppose a rather large sensor, along with of selfie-centric feature set on the software side, are to be expected.
Now, a Q4 release is still a fair way off, so it's not surprising that this is all the information we have so far. Inevitably, though, if such a device makes it beyond the drawing board, we will likely be hearing more about it in due time. In the mean time, feel free to check out company's new, plastic flagship, the One E8, while getting up to speed on all things HTC.
