One of the biggest highlights of the alleged HTC Desire Eye smartphone is the 13-megapixel front-facing camera boasting wide angle and an f/2.0 aperture.
One of the leaked images of the alleged Desire Eye smartphone appears to be from the company's marketing material, and shows the front and back panels of the yet-to-be-announced handset both sporting dual-LED flash. If the rumours are to be believed, the alleged Desire Eye smartphone can be considered to be the company's latest attempt to cash-in on the growing 'selfie' trend.
The images also indicate the Desire Eye will feature a dual-colour look, with a caption reading "clean design, with smooth coloured edges."
Some of the other specifications tipped include a 5.2-inch full-HD display; quad-core Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.3GHz; 2GB of RAM; 32GB inbuilt storage; 2400mAh removable battery; IPX7 certification (water resistance); as well as 13-megapixel cameras on both the front and rear, both accompanied by dual-LED flash. The alleged Desire Eye smartphone is also said to come with Sense 6 UI running on top of Android OS.

Most of these rumoured specifications go in-line with previous leaked ones for the HTC One (M8 Eye), and so may just be referring to the same phone. Additionally, the phone tipster claims that other HTC high-end smartphones - HTC One, One mini, One (M8), One mini 2, One (E8) and One Max - will also receive selfie specialised functions with the upcoming Android L update.

Recently, HTC's much-touted "something remarkable" rugged waterproof camera dubbed RECamera was claimed to have been revealed in images along with other information. The Taiwanese giant in a tweet from an all new RECamera Twitter account further cemented the fact that a camera-like device will be revealed at HTC's 'Double Exposure' media event on October 8 in New York.
