Three UK has secured an exclusive right to distribute state-of-the-art HTC Desire Eye smartphone.
Come November, Three will start offering the newest HTC masterpiece as the sole distributor in the UK. The talked-about phone is HTC Desire Eye which is a duo-camera monster. HTC wants to cater for the needs of the newest generation which is snapping photos like crazy. That is why the Taiwan manufacturer equipped the phone with two 13 megapixel cameras, so that not only can you take a high resolution photo of the surroundings, but also make a perfect selfie. HTC sees this camera as something much more than the most impressive selfie snapper, as it is also suitable for video chatting which turns out to be a trend among young adults nowadays.
Desire Eye will obviously be the flagship of the Desire line. In terms of specifications it is not the most powerful device on the market but it houses a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon chip which makes it a solid smartphone. The screen is 5.2” which is bigger than HTC One. Interestingly, the phone is water-resistant up to 1m for about 30 minutes – this is great considering that they achieved it without any ugly flaps.
Head of devices at Three UK Sylvia Chind commented on this announcement saying “We are delighted that Three is the exclusive operator partner for the HTC Desire Eye in the UK. The new Re camera opens up a new world of creative opportunity and by utilising the many editing and upload features, our customers can share their videos and photos effortlessly across our reliable network.”
There has been no announcement about the pricing of the phone, so as soon as more details emerge we will inform you.
