HTC Desire EYE gets benchmarked, leaves a list of possible specs

With HTC primed to introduce its new "Selfie" model later today, the HTC Desire EYE has made it through the GFX Benchmark site, giving us some specs to chew over. According to the GFX site, the device will apparently be equipped with a 5.2 inch screen offering a resolution of 1080 x 1920. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU, with the Adreno 330 GPU crunching graphics. 2GB of RAM is on board.

This being considered a "selfie" phone, HTC has affixed a 13MP snapper to both the front and the back of the device. Both can record video in 1080 x 1920, and both support the usual bevy of features including Auto Focus, Face Detection, HDR and Touch Focus. The phone is equipped with 16GB of native storage, of which 9GB is available to the user. Android 4.4.4 is pre-installed with a version of Sense, no doubt, running on top.

HTC's "Double Exposure" event  is expected to start around 4PM in New York City, and might include a new HTC action camera, and a phablet version of the HTC One (M8). Keep checking in during the day for the latest news from HTC's event.

Thanks for the tip!

It it the Snapdragon 801, production of the 800 stopped a long time ago. Both chips are almost identical that's probably the reason why GFXBench report Snapdragon 800.

9gb of usable storage on 16gb, cant these companies either slim down the OS or increase the storage, and yes i know there is memory slots but not all apps and games can run from the sd, some apps cant be moved and in general its just not enough, this is 2014, the difference between 16gb and 32gb flash at trade to these large companies is a matter of a few $/£ per unit
