HTC at CES 2015 unveiled a brand new mid-range Android smartphone that packs an interesting feature that photographers who love taking selfies on a regular basis will certainly appreciate. The handset comes with a great front-facing camera that HTC has so far used as the main shooter on some of its past flagship handsets, including the latest HTC One smartphones.

FROM EARLIER: The iPhone 6 might be low-res, but Apple’s highest-resolution device ever is coming soon

The HTC Desire 826 has an UltraPixel front-facing shooter, which should offer an even better performance than the usual secondary smartphone cameras.

In addition to the UltraPixel shooter, the Desire 826 features a 5.5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 13-megapixel rear camera, microSD expansion, dual nano-SIM support, BoomSound speakers, 2,600 mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The Desire 826 is supposed to launch in various international markets at the end of the month, though a price for the handset isn’t available at this time.
