Mobile network Three has claimed UK exclusivity on the newly-announced HTC Desire EYE selfie phone
The operator told Pocket-Lint it’ll be the only firm stocking the Desire EYE, although it appears to be a timed exclusive rather than a permanent stranglehold.
“Three is the only UK operator to offer the new HTC Desire Eye smartphone alongside the brand new RE handheld camera,” a network representative said.
A release date for both devices is yet to be confirmed.
The statement suggests Three will also sell the HTC RE camera – the periscope-shaped action camera – but it doesn’t seem like it has any sort of exclusive in that department.
Its key feature is the 13-megapixel front-facing camera, designed to allow users to produce even more selfies at a higher quality than experienced on most other smartphones on the market.
HTC has also bundled in a host of interesting software features which allows users to up their selfie game. Split Capture takes a photo with the front and rear-facing cameras at the same time, while Crop-Me-In places the user in the shot captured by the rear camera.
