The new model won't lose the depth altering features and the Lytro-style post production change in focus that you get with the HTC One (M8). But what the "Eye" will do is give the rear camera a higher MP sensor. HTC had hoped to sell the public on the idea that its ultrapixels would allow more light into the camera which would equal better pictures. However, this controversial issue might have held back sales of the HTC One (M8), a phone that just might be the best Android smartphone out there, otherwise.
Android 4.4.4 will be pre-installed on the M8 Eye, with Sense 6 running on top of it. There has been some talk about the M8 Eye replacing the 5 inch screen on the HTC One (M8) with a slightly larger 5.2 inch glass. The rest of the specs are supposed to be the same including a 1080 x 1920 resolution, a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of native storage, a 128GB capacity microSD slot and a 2600mAh battery.
For those out there who have held themselves back from buying the HTC One (M8) because of the camera, you soon might not have that excuse any more. The HTC M8 Eye is expected to launch before the end of October.
