HTC Desire EYE

Description

The HTC Desire EYE marks the company's foray into “selfie-centric” smartphones. The two-color unibody device sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display with a pixel density of 423ppi. As a whole, it's a pretty power-laden device, as it totes a pretty large dual LED-enabled 13MP front-facing camera with an f/2.2 sensor aperture and a wide 22mm lens. Under the hood one can find a quad-core Snapdragon 801 humming at 2.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, microSD card slot, 2,400mAh Li-Polymer battery, and another 13MP camera at the back. It's running Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box with HTC's Sense 6 atop.
