HTC unveiled the first member of its new Eye family this week, but it was very quickly to add a second with the One (M8 Eye) joining the Desire Eye. Now we learn that a third Eye smartphone is on the way as import documents from India have listed it.
Several hundred units of the yet unofficial HTC One (E8 Eye) have entered India. They come in two different colors – Silver and Gray. The price listed is INR 27,275 (about $445), so a reasonable guess is the final retail price will be along the lines of the original HTC One (E8), which goes for INR32,000 ($520) in the subcontinent.
What we don’t really know is how the Eye version of the One (E8) will differ from the original device. It’s certain that it will be running the new Eye Experience selfie-enhancing software out of the box, but that will be seeded to the other One E8 units eventually.
The One (M8) gave up on its UltraPixel camera in favor of a conventional 13MP snapper, but the E8 already has that. All the listing gives us is that NFC will be dropped, but we’ll have to wait for an official announcement by HTC to know for sure. Here’s hoping that it won’t take too long.
