HTC launched the Desire Eye and the RE camera yesterday, but didn't share any details on another device rumored to make its debut, the One M8 Eye. It looks like HTC was aiming for a limited release with the latter handset, as the manufacturer has silently listed the One M8 Eye on its Chinese e-store.
According to rumors, the device is slated to be limited to the Chinese and Indian markets, which explains why HTC made no mention of the device at its launch event yesterday. HTC's Chinese e-store mentions that the One M8 Eye will be available in the country starting October 15 for 3,999 RMB ($652).
Design-wise, the One M8 Eye looks identical to the standard variant of the One M8. The specs of the device are also similar to that of a standard One M8, which means a 5.0-inch full-HD screen, 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory and a duo camera setup at the back that now comes with a standard 13 MP sensor in lieu of the 4 MP UltraPixel sensor. Unlike the Desire Eye, the One M8 Eye does not have a 13 MP camera at the front, and instead features the same 5 MP sensor that is seen on the standard variant. The One M8 Eye also features HTC's new Eye Experience along with dual-SIM functionality, a 3D shooting mode and LTE connectivity.
