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.

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
