HTC Launches Selfie Phone
New smartphone Desire Eye has been called a “selfie phone” in the social networks due its capacity to make self-portraits. The cameras on the front and back are of equal quality: both have 13-megapixel matrixes and LED-flashes. It has a “split capture” ddsfunction, which allows both cameras to be used simultaneously.
HTC has also revealed action cam RE (it was previously announced with the teaser video). The camera is waterproof, periscope-shaped, has a lens with a 146 degree field of view and 16-megapixel matrix. The waterproof RE is instantly activated when you pick it up, so it needs only a single button to capture images or start/stop video recording. It can be synchronized with other devices with the help of app, that is available for Android and iOS. It is planned that RE will soon offer real-time video streaming to YouTube.
