The HTC Desire Eye is the ultimate selfie phone: waterproof, dual 13MP & dual LED flashes

If you’re one of the people looking to buy a phone that can take quality selfies, then you may want to take a look at what HTC has announced today – the Desire Eye.

The HTC Desire Eye has been leaked in the past in many forms, and it has confirmed to pack high-end specs and more: the Desire Eye is waterproof and comes with HTC’s new Eye Experience software which offers more shooting modes than before. Here are a few things that you can do with HTC’s Eye.

  • Combine front & rear facing camera shots into one
  • Add your selfie on top of a scene
  • Face tracking for video
  • Merge your faces with others in a selfie

The two cameras here are of the 13 megapixel kind, and both have dual LED flashes. Unlike the HTC One M8, the phone is not made from metal, but the front-facing BoomSound speakers are still there, just overshadowed by that huge selfie camera that likes staring at you all the time.
