While HTC had a blastic launch of the Desire EYE in the New York, which is almost the same as the One M8 except one hardware difference. The Desire EYE has a large focus on the camera experience of the user. After dealing with the New York launch, HTC silently puts on the HTC One M8 EYE listing on their chinese web store.
Every aspect of the HTC One M8 EYE is the same as the previous One M8, except the camera; the primary camera. In the One M8 EYE, the primary camera is a 13MP shooter with the same sensors used as in the HTC Butterfly 2 and the HTC Desire EYE. But unlike the Desire EYE, in the case of One M8 EYE, the front camera, or the selfie camera as some might say, is still the 5MP shooter. The new M8 EYE will ship with the updated camera firmware which gives the ‘Eye Experience’ along with the latest updates released, HTC announced this week.
According to their chinese website, the HTC One M8 EYE will include the EYE Experience features such as the Face Fusion, Split Capture, and the advanced face tracking features that is useful for conferencing. One thing that I feel, is that this silent launch was a suggestion that this special version of the HTC One M8 is specifically for the chinese market.
