HTC 'Desire Eye' specs leaked, set to include a 13MP front-facing 'selfie' shooter

Smartphones with upgraded front-facing shooters are becoming more popular as the demand for high quality "selfie" shots increases. HTC could address this demand with a new entrant to its Desire family, if the latest leaks are to be believed. The HTC "Desire Eye" purportedly includes a dual 13-megapixel camera configuration, and a Desire 820-like plastic body, according to specs and images leaked by upleaks

HTC Desire Eye(a.k.a EYE); S801 2.3GHz*4, 5.2" FHD, 13MP/13MP, 2GB/32GB, 2400mAh removable, Sense 6 for EYE, IPX7

That makes the Desire Eye a higher-end proposition than most Desire phones, with specs to rival the HTC One M8. It's also interesting to see the "Eye" brand appearing in connection with the Desire line; earlier rumors have also pointed to an "M8 EYE" arriving with a 13-megapixel plus Duo camera setup.

As well as the above information on the HTC Desire Eye, @upleaks also claims that the HTC One E8, HTC One Mini 2, HTC Desire 816, HTC One M7, HTC One Mini and HTC One Max will sport "selfie-specialized" once Android L has been released. As with any unconfirmed rumors, take all this with a pinch of salt until any official announcements are made.
