    Face tracking keeps you in focus and in the frame, Becker says.
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:11:50 PM
    It can track up to four faces at the same time.
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:12:09 PM
    another feature: screen share
  • Dan Graziano 10/8/2014 8:12:55 PM
    The Eye Experience will come to existing HTC One devices as a free update next month.
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:13:02 PM
    If you already own an HTC One, Eye Experience will come via a free upgrade in the next month.
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:13:10 PM
    And now, another video
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:13:43 PM
    HTC Desire Eye is official
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:14:15 PM
    Desire Eye offers dual 13MP wide angle lenses -- same cam on front and back.

    Hey, Roger Cheng, executive editor for CNET News, finally able to get on!
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:14:23 PM
    both have dual color LED flashes, too
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:14:29 PM
    Sorry about that, we've had some serious connection issues here.
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:14:50 PM
    The Desire Eye has a unibody chassis ,IPS7 waterproof.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:14:56 PM
    The HTC Desire Eye was created almost exclusively for folks who want to take selfies.
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:15:09 PM
    5.2-inch full HD screen

    and HTC's BoomSound speakers w/ dedicated noise cancellation
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:15:24 PM
    It's not HTC's flagship smartphone though. That remains the metallic HTC One M8. The Desire Eye sits a notch below, using plastic and lower end specs.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:16:05 PM
    HTC's event has taken a pause as an impromptu fashion show takes place. We've got models walking back and forth on stage.
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:16:14 PM
    You can see how much larger the front camera is from the photo -- and the front flash is unique, too.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:16:29 PM
    The models are holding the new Desire Eye, but they aren't using them.
  • sarahtew 10/8/2014 8:16:53 PM
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:16:56 PM
    FYI, HTC has managed to thin out the BoomSound speakers down to a hairline, allowing it to fit that large camera on the top.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:17:17 PM
    Ah, now the models have stopped and are using the phones to take -- of course -- selfies.
  • sarahtew 10/8/2014 8:17:38 PM
  • John Falcone 10/8/2014 8:17:49 PM
    It's a full-on fashion show runway right now.

    On stage now is Drew Bamford, who heads up the company's newly formed Creative Labs.
  • Lynn La 10/8/2014 8:19:14 PM



  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:19:50 PM
    The Creative Labs unit is tasked with creating new devices and software and services outside of the traditional smartphone business.

  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:20:31 PM
    Bamford is touting Zoe, the company's app that allows you to create short highlight videos with your photos and videos.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:20:44 PM
    People have been looking for a way to tell compelling stories with high production values, Bamford says.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:20:50 PM
    Enter Zoe.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:21:09 PM
    What if we gave people tools to collaborate on the same video, Bamford asks.
  • Roger Cheng 10/8/2014 8:21:19 PM
    The result is Zoe, HTC's first app.
