HTC Desire EYE price revealed: it costs as much as the One (M8)
posted by Florin T. / Oct 08, 2014, 5:07 PM
According to the website, the new handset should be available in France before the end of this month for €529. Since that’s also the price of the HTC One (M8) in France, it’s probably safe to assume that the Desire EYE will cost about as much as the One (M8) in all markets - including in the US, where it should be launched soon.
The Desire EYE is an unusual smartphone, because it has a 13 MP rear camera, as well as a 13 MP front-facing camera, each with its own dual LED flash set-up. Thanks to these cameras, the EYE should be very good at taking both regular photos, and selfies.
Running Android KitKat with Sense 6 UI, the Desire EYE also features a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, BoomSound speakers, a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. The handset weighs 154 grams, measures 151.7 x 73.8 x 8.5 mm, and comes with a 2400 mAh battery. You can find out more about the new smartphone by checking out our HTC Desire EYE hands-on.

HTC really really doesn't learn from its mistakes. HTC don't know how to price their phones. GOOD LUCK htc, you're going down, down, down. Well i am really really hoping that the Nexus 9 is priced properly (of course with google's blessing) Because i am having that one. But not this.

They're between the bezels of the glass and plastic. Zoom in and you can see them

They are in the thin black stripes between the white top and bottom bezels and the black display panel. You can see them in the pics and some of the close-up renders, if you look for them there. Ah, ninja'd by Berzerk

As soon as I heard the specs, I thought they must be wrong, as it would be too expensive to be in the Desire range...looks like HTC has somehow forgot the Desire name is supposed to be for their more wallet friendly phones. Cool design though, hope this kind of Boomsound speaker placement becomes a staple.

Good job HTC. Welcome back you are on the rite track, now shrink the bezel and simplier repair. You are winning my love back.

Yes they definitely need to get rid of the "htc" logo on the front and move to the back like moto and apple plus get rid of that back bar it's worse than the iPhone 6 and it has onscreen homebbuttons!

I think a lot will come to realize that the position of the front camera is a really bad choice. it's exactly where you position your ear to hear; meaning sweat and smudges are going to block the camera and you will have to clean the lens after every call. My God, what were they thinking!

Earlier front Camera was used for Video chat. For a budget data plan or the weakest networks, to have a video chat the resolution of the Camera should be very less. Now the purpose of the front Cam has been changed because of the budget friendly Chinese OEMs
