The HTC One (M8) is one of the best smartphones we’ve reviewed this year but there was one thing about it we found particularly disappointing — namely, the quality of its camera, which can’t hold a candle to the cameras on rival flagship devices such as the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S5. However, a new report from Android Police claims that HTC is about to fix that with a new smartphone set to be unveiled next month that will feature a 13-megapixel Duo Camera.
Per Android Police, it seems the device will be called the HTC One (M8) Eye and it will likely ship with Android 4.4.4 and HTC’s own Sense 6 overlay. No other specs for the device are known at this time, although it could just be a new version of the original HTC One (M8) that happens to have a superior camera. The One (M8), if you don’t recall, features a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, a 5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a 2,600 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.
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.
