HTC is upping its photo game. The company will offer two new devices this fall that are aimed at taking better pictures, including selfies. HTC also is updating one of its models.

The HTC Desire EYE, a 5.2-inch smartphone, has a 13-megapixel camera on both the front and rear.

The device will come with the new HTC Eye Experience software and only 16 gigabytes of onboard memory, but its micro SD card slot will support up to 128 GB.


The HTC One M8 is getting an update. It will have the Eye Experience software, which will improve its camera with some cool features including a split capture option that allows use of the front-facing and rear camera simultaneously.

The Desire EYE is reported to be only available at AT&T stores and will cost around $420 off-contract, while the HTC One M8 is offered by major U.S. mobile carriers for $500 to $650 off-contract.

HTC's new RE 16-megapixel camera is capable of recording in both 720p and 1080p resolutions and has a slow motion feature. The $200 camera also has a 146-degree lens and can attach to an android or iOS device, or can shoot on its own.

The RE camera is the start of HTC offering of products beyond the mobile world, but the RE line will still have to compete with popular handheld cameras such as ones offered from GoPro.
