HTC Desire Eye and One (M8) Eye pop up with price details and screen sizes

HTC'с "selfie" phone, the Desire Eye, is now an entry in the Indian import-export database Zauba. Recently, the Eye leaked in pretty press renders, showing a 13 MP front-facing camera and dual LED flash at the front - something no other brand-name phone maker is offering at the moment. Thanks to Zauba, now we get to learn another crucial spec for the Eye - apparently it will have a 5.2" display, too. As for the price, the Desire Eye is listed with a roughly $350 equivalent per unit, which doesn't sound bad at all, depending on what the rest of the specs are.

HTC's selfie phone is not the only thing that the import-export database hides though. Tucked in its table listings is the so-called HTC One (M8) Eye, which we could only assume might refer to the rumored One (M8) version with a 13 MP Duo camera. This one will be selling at quite the premium to the Desire Eye, which could be expected, given the eventual flagship specs. HTC is holding its "Double Exposure" event on Wednesday, and while we are expecting an action camera to be announced by the manufacturer, the unveiling of a selfie phone has been long rumored.

For real... I have a g2.. And 5.2" with such huge looking bezels would probably make this phone feel like a g3 in the hand. Looks good tho..

I agree, but stereo speakers, the 13MP camera and waterproofing might just make up for that.

Instead of putting a 13MP front, bring the 4 ultrapixel to the front and put a proper 13mp camera on the back.

They do have the thirteen megapixel camera on both sides.

Why not take the opportunity to throw an 805 in there and keep the phone current for a good 6 months longer.

I don't know if I should be happy or disturbed that trend of incorporating front-facing LED flashes are becoming popular now. They're are going to sit on the front of the phone like an eyesore and then replicate a washed out still photo of your face when you're using it.
