HTC Eye expected to be a "selfie phone"
According to @evleaks, AT&T is already testing this selfie phone, and it’s calling it HTC Eye. Unfortunately, there are no images of the handset, and no details on its features. But we’re thinking that HTC could use a front-facing camera with a higher megapixel count for this device. It wouldn’t be the first to do so - for example, Huawei’s Ascend P7 comes with an 8MP secondary camera, in addition to a 13MP rear snapper.
There is no word on when the HTC Eye (assuming that this is its final name) will be released. Also, we don’t know if HTC intends to launch the handset exclusively on AT&T, or if it plans to commercialize it worldwide. In any case, we’ll keep an eye on this Eye, and let you know when new info about it is available.

Because being blinded by a bright LED is fun.
The G3 as a cool "illuminating" feature for the front camera. All OEM's should follow LG's example.

It's like they just can't stop themselves from getting sucked into whatever they think the current trend is, even if it makes absolutely no business sense.
2011: "The kids are watching 3D movies? Let's make a 3D phone!"
2012: "The kids are listening to Beats by Dre? Let's brand every phone we make with their logo!"
2013: "The kids are using Facebook? Let's make a Facebook phone!"
2014: "The kids are taking selfies and Samsung paid Ellen Degeneres to do it too? Let's build a selfie phone!"
Not to mention their choice in celebrity brand ambassadors...

just when htc starts doing some good. they should really stop making all these variations on phones. especially since it never helped in the past. i can't wait to hear all the stupid variations that will come out of this one HTC Eye, HTC Eye patch (for those that don't want their picture taken), HTC pink Eye (for the ladies), HTC bifocal (for the seniors), HTC seeing Eye (for the blind) n so on. the variations are as limitless as HTC stupidity. cuz i'm sure the execs are saying "let's make tons of variations for a phone no one wanted or ever needed. cuz i'm sure we'll only profit from this as usual."
