AT&T also confirmed today that it will offer the RE™ by HTC, a point-and-shoot camera later this year. Pricing and full availability for both products will be announced at a later date.

HTC Desire EYE boasts a 5.2-inch full High Definition display (1080p), stylish design and powerful 2.3 GHz Quad-Core processor – all on the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network1 that reaches more than 300 million Americans. The smartphone enables you to capture amazing "selfies," even in low-light with its 13MP front facing wide-angle camera and dual LED flash. The front and rear facing 13MP cameras with motion tracking and voice-activated software allow you to capture more background and wider group shots with smile capture or voice command. Share everything on your screen in real-time to get quick feedback from your friend or show off your photos. HTC Desire EYE is also IPX7-compliant, making it water-resistant up to one meter under water for 30 minutes.3 The HTC BoomSound™ front-facing speakers include a built-in amplifier boost volume for powerful and balanced sound.

  • Dimensions: 151.7 x 73.8 x 8.5 mm (154g)
  • Operating System: Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Memory: 16 GB / 2 GB
  • Battery: 2400mAh
RE by HTC has a 146-degree, wide-angle lens that captures everything you see in full view, replacing the need for a viewfinder. With a 16MP camera sensor and 1080p High Definition video, you can capture your world with high quality photos and video. RE easily integrates with both Android and iOS devices to back up your photos and videos to the cloud. Just grab, point and shoot with RE's intuitive controls. The grip sensor is always on and wakes the capture capability when picked up. Simply tap the shutter button to capture photos or press and hold to take videos. RE is also IPX7-compliant.3 This means you can capture the fun up to one meter underwater for 30 minutes without a protective case. RE can connect to your smartphone with the companion RE application using Bluetooth. The RE app can transfer all of the photos and videos from your RE to your smartphone and can also back up your content to third-party cloud services such as Google Drive and Dropbox.4 The app also serves as both a content browser and live viewfinder on your device, mirroring what the camera is seeing.
