We've been hearing for a while that HTC is eyeing the selfie trend for its upcoming products. In addition to perhaps the oddest-looking
smartphone camera accessory ever, the Taiwanese vendor is preparing a full-blown phone with enhanced photographic capabilities. It's code-named the HTC Eye, or HTC One (M8 Eye), although we'll stick with the former for brevity.
Recently, the phone was rumored as a version of the HTC One (M8) in which the 4MP ultrapixel Duo camera is replaced with a 13MP Duo Camera
. Has HTC succumbed to all the bad press the original One M8's ultrapixel cam got? We can only speculate on this matter, but the newly leaked render we're about to show you leaves no questions about the design. It's absolutely the HTC One (M8), perhaps with a slightly bigger 5.2-inch screen. The rest of the specs remain the same, except for the improved camera.
On October 8, HTC will be having a press event
, where the company will most probably showcase that snorkel-like camera accessory we spoke of. We won't be surprised to see the HTC Eye make an appearance, but that's merely a logical assumption right now.
