HTC One (M8) Eye gets certified in China
The other day, we passed along a rumor about a new variation of the HTC One (M8) called the HTC One (M8) Eye. This unit would replace the controversial 4MP UltraPixel rear-facing Duo camera on the back of HTC's flagship model, with a 13MP Duo camera. Users would still be able to employ all of the depth altering features available with the Duo camera, and remain able to change the focal point of a picture in the same manner as a Lytro camera.

The larger UltraPixels were supposed to produce higher quality photos by allowing more light to be absorbed by the camera when taking a picture. This was supposed to allow for better shots taken under low-light conditions. Instead, it seems that many consumers ended up playing the numbers game and couldn't get past the 4MP listed on the spec sheet.

The HTC One (M8) Eye has just been certified by TENAA, which is China's version of the FCC. Despite rumors about a 5.2 inch screen, it looks like this new variant will keep the 5 inch 1080 x 1920 resolution screen found on the HTC One (M8). It also keeps the 5MP front-facing camera for high quality selfies. In fact, most of the other specs match up with the One (M8).

The HTC One (M8) Eye is expected to be available in China (gold, gray and silver) and India (silver, gold and black).  The Chinese model has support for GSM,TD-SCDMA, and TD-LTE. The model for India features GSM,TD-LTE, and WCDMA connectivity. There is another slight variation in both models. The HTC M8Et for China features a 128GB capacity microSD slot. The HTC M8Ew for India has a 64GB microSD slot.

Yesterday, we showed you a leaked press render of the HTC One (M8) Eye which not surprisingly, looks just like the HTC One (M8). Below, we have the usual low resolution pictures offered by TENAA, this time for the HTC One (M8) Eye. To view them, click on the slideshow below.


Thanks for the tip!
