HTC Desire Eye Gets Benchmarked Ahead of Official Announcement

With just a few hours left until HTC’s “Double Exposure” event is scheduled to begin, new details confirming some of the specs of one of the devices to be unveiled today leaked online.

The folks over at Techtastic have just spotted the HTC Desire Eye, the selfie smartphone to be announced later today, at GFX Benchmark site. Along with the smartphone’s benchmark scores, a list of specs is available as well. Although we knew most of the hardware and software configuration of the Desire Eye, it’s nice to have another confirmation of the smartphone’s capabilities. According to the listing at GFX Benchmark, HTC Desire Eye will be equipped with an impressive 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual-LED flash, autofocus and full HD (1080p) video recording. Previous rumors also mention that the smartphone will come with a similar 13-megapixel camera in the front, along with a dual-LED flash for better capturing in low-light conditions.

Another piece of information leaked on the benchmark site is the 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor inside the HTC Desire Eye, which was mentioned in previous reports as well. Obviously, Qualcomm’s chipset also accommodates an Adreno 330 graphics processing unit, along with 2GB of RAM, which are enough for a high-end smartphone. Furthermore, the Desire Eye is likely to pack 16GB of internal memory, but the benchmark mentions only 9GB of storage will be available for users. Luckily, the smartphone will also pack a microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 128GB).

The soon to be unveiled smartphone is said to sport a 5.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display that should support full HD (1080p) resolution. Last but not least, HTC Desire Eye will ship with Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system out of the box. The good news is the Taiwanese company will probably offer an Android L upgrade for the smartphone a few months after the official release of the new OS. In the same piece of news, the Desire Eye won’t be the only smartphone to be introduced by HTC later today at the “Double Exposure” event. Word is that the handset makes plans to unveil another top-tier Android smartphone in just a few hours, the HTC One M8 max. Even though previous rumors claim this handset will boast a stunning QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) display, according to the latest hearsay, the One M8 max will in fact be packed with a full HD (1080p) screen.

Oh well, we’ll only have to wait a few more hours for HTC to unveil its new high-end smartphones, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
