HTC has already announced its official list of devices that will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow few days ago. Now, we can update this list by adding a new device to this list.
HTC has confirmed that HTC Desire EYE will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Sense 7.0 UI on top. The update is getting closer in Q1,2016 with lots of other devices on the Desire line.
Many of the HTC One M8 users are waiting on fire for the New Sense 7.0 UI to hit their devices. Today, we have some good news for HTC users worldwide, HTC ROM developer @LlabTooFeR (trusted for HTC news) just tweeted some that Sense 7.0 UI will come with Android 5.1 Lollipop Update to the HTC One M8, One M8s, Desire Eye, Butterfly 2 and some other devices.
Non of the current devices will get Android 5.0.2 + Sense 7.0 (except M9)...Sense 7.0 become available with Android 5.1 only on some models.— LlabTooFeR (@LlabTooFeR) April 10, 2015
According to the source, the Android 5.0.2 update for HTC won't pack the Sense 7.0 UI like what's on the HTC One M9 currently. This means that current M8 users will have to wait a while for 5.1 Lollipop update to enjoy the New Sense 7.0 UI.
For sure Sense 7.0 will be available as update for M8, M8s, Desire EYE, Butterfly 2 and some other devices...— LlabTooFeR (@LlabTooFeR) April 10, 2015
As for the HTC One M7, it's not clear yet if it will get updated to Sense 7.0 UI or not. The 2 years old flagship already received the 5.0.1 Lollipop update with Sense 6.0 UI earlier this year. Hopefully, HTC won't forget its loyal "One" users.
While the HTC Desire EYE already received its Android Lollipop update outside of the US, the handset's version that AT&T is selling is still running Android KitKat. Fortunately, HTC and AT&T are now ready to update the phone.
According to HTC VP of Product Management Mo Versi, AT&T's HTC Desire EYE should be updated to Android Lollipop starting today, June 30. Mind you, the update brings Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 6.0 UI, but it's still going to include various changes and enhancements.
For now, it doesn't look like the update is live, but some AT&T Desire EYE owners should get it over the air before the end of the day.
HTC Desire EYE official Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is Rolling-out to Unlocked variants and AT&T variant of the device. The news has been confirmed via users and HTC's VP product manager Mo Versi on twitter too.
Great news for HTC Desire Eye AT&T owners! We've just received technical approval for Lollipop update! OTA to start tomorrow!— Mo Versi (@moversi) June 30, 2015
The New Lollipop 5.0.1 update brings an updated UI with Material Design but still keeping the same Sense UI v6.0 on the device. New Apps, Update Notification Panel, updated lockscreen along with various bug fixes and performance improvements.
HTC Desire EYE Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update with Sense 7.0 UI is expected to be released in the next few months too with .
The rumored unannounced "HTC One M8 Eye" just got certified through the TENAA. The device is supposed to be the HTC One M8 successor.
As you can see in the images above, the HTC One M8 Eye will feature the same design as the version we already know. The only difference between the specs of the two is the 13MP rear Duo-camera that the newcomer will bring it is bound to be a significant improvement over the 4MP unit of the currently available on the Original HTC M8.
Physical measures of the upcoming device are 146 × 70.6 × 9.4 mm, while its weight tips the scale at 157 grams. Like its design, the waistline of the HTC M8 Eye matches that of the original.
A rumor about an upcoming HTC device from the desire family, that will be called the "HTC Desire Eye" has been not been confirmed yet but it seems logical. If HTC will release the "M8 Eye" it should release another mid-range device of the same type, and the "Desire Eye" is the one.
HTC Desire Eye is tipped to pack a 5.2" 1080p display and run on the powerful Snapdragon 801 chipset with a quad-core Krait 400 processor at 2.3GHz and 2GB RAM.
The most interesting feature is the camera department of the HTC Desire Eye a 13MP front Selfie Camera coupled with a dual-LED front-flash and a 13MP rear camera. This should be quite interesting combo and a tough competitor for the upcoming Oppo N3.
The rest of the tipped specs include 32GB internal storage, a 2,400 mAh battery and IPX7 certification for water resistance. The Desire Eye will run on Android OS with Sense 6 UI with Eye camera app on top of it.
Yesterday, HTC released a new device called HTC Desire Eye. This is the first Smartphone with an HTC Eye 13MP front-facing camera and flash for amazing selfies, the Desire Eye also packs a 13MP rear-camera with flash too.
Both cameras can record 1080p@30fps video. The one on the back has an f/2.0 aperture and a 28mm lens, while the one on the front has a wider 20mm lens but a smaller f/2.2 aperture.
HTC's trademark BoomSound speakers are harder to see but still on board. They flank the larger 5.2" screen of the HTC Desire Eye, an LCD with 1080p resolution. Besides selfie camera and screen size, the Eye also trumps the One E8 with an IPX7 rating water resistance up to 1m of water for half an hour.
The Desire Eye carries much better specs than most of the Desire family. It's powered by a Snapdragon 801 chipset with 2GB RAM and runs Android 4.4 with the latest Sense software and two camera-centric apps Eye Experience and the new Zoe.
HTC announced the Eye Experience software two days ago, the first device to pack these features is the HTC Desire Eye. The Eye Experience is also coming to the HTC One M8 alongside Android 4.4.4 KitKat, which also contains some security fixes.
The Eye Experience improves the One M8 camera software with some cool features mostly involving the front-facing camera. You can now track up to 4 faces during video chat and ensure they're within the camera's view angle thanks to Face Tracking. It is followed by the Split capture feature that lets you use the front-facing and rear camera simultaneously.
The M8 firmware version of the update is 3.28.401.6 and weighs 252.01MB. Currently, HTC is slowly seeding the update for unlocked One M8 units in Europe, but other markets should follow shortly.
HTC has quietly launched an updated version of the new HTC One. Called the HTC One M8 EYE, the new model features just one change, but it also happens to be the one that everybody was asking for. HTC has swapped the 4 UltraPixel Duo-camera from the original M8 to a new 13 megapixel Duo-camera from the Desire EYE but retains the second depth sensor. It also gets the new HTC EYE Experience software from the Desire EYE, but then that is also being made available for the standard M8.
Although the original M8 was critically acclaimed for being an excellent smartphone, the UltraPixel camera on the back was universally hailed as being unimpressive due to its low resolution. The latest update fixes that with a three time resolution boost, although low light performance likely won't be as good now.
Regardless of that, the M8 EYE is only available in China for now for ¥3,999 ($652).
