In addition to RE, HTC also launched the Eye experience-enabled smartphones in the Indian market. Although HTC plans to release the Eye camera experience to existing HTC devices, including the One M8, the One M8 Eye swaps the original’s Ultrapixel technology with the 13 megapixel Duo Camera. Needless to say, the One M8 Eye will come with the Eye experience out of the box and boasts similar unibody design to the original One M8, BoomSound, HTC Sense 6 integration, 5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 4G LTE support and a 5 megapixel camera on the front for wide-angle selfies.
The HTC One M8 Eye will be available in India for Rs. 38,990.
HTC Desire Eye brings the 13 megapixel goodness on both the sides of the device along with an LED flash. HTC hasn’t revealed the price yet but given the hardware, we assume it will be more or less priced closer to One M8 Eye with a IPX7 water resistant body, 5.2-inch Full HD 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, microSD card slot, 4G LTE support and the full Eye experience.
HTC Desire Eye will be available exclusively on Amazon.in.
HTC also announced a new handset – the Desire 516C, which is nothing but a CDMA-based variant of the Desire 516. The Desire 516C tries to give the best of GSM and CDMA network technologies with support for dual SIM and has a 5-inch qHD display with 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 5 megapixel camera. The phone will sell exclusively through Snapdeal for Rs. 12,990.
HTC also announced the pricing of the Desire 820 and Desire 820q. The Desire 820 will sell for Rs. 24,990 while the Desire 820q will go for Rs. 22,500.
