HTC is going to have a big media event next week but, as is often the case these days, the company is having a tough time keeping its surprises under wraps. Twitter smartphone leaker @Upleaks on Friday posted specs for HTC’s upcoming smartphone that will either be called the HTC One (M8) Eye or the HTC Desire Eye and it looks like the device will have more to offer than just a vastly improved 13-megapixel camera.

According to @Upleaks, the device will feature a 5.2-inch full HD display, a Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.3GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, a 2,400mAh removable battery and the aforementioned 13-megapixel camera.

Although the HTC One (M8) has been one of our favorite smartphones released so far this year, we found that its camera quality really lagged behind the cameras found in the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S5, among others. With this in mind, HTC is getting ready to unveil a new device that will address this criticism by combining a vastly improved camera with the killer hardware design that has earned the company so much praise.

HTC is set to have a big media event on October 8th in New York. In its invitation for the event, HTC teased that the event would have a focus on “double exposure,” which likely hints it will be camera-centric in some way.
