HTC to bring selfie-centric ‘EYE Experience’ to other handsets

After launching the HTC Desire EYE selfie phone at a special event on Wednesday night, the Taiwanese firm announced it is bringing some of the same software to existing handsets.

The firm is planning to launch an updated version of the HTC Sense 6 user interface, with a camera app featuring what it is calling the ‘Eye Experience.’

The new app will bring new tools like the Split Capture, Crop-Me-In, Photo Booth, Auto Selfie, Voice Selfie and Live Make-Up to older handsets.

Split Capture is an app that allows users to take a photo with the front and rear cameras at the same time. Crop-Me-In enables users to add themselves to the scene being shot with the rear camera.

Photo Booth takes four selfies in quick succession while the Auto and Voice Selfie modes enable photos to be taken without hitting the shutter. Rather shamelessly, the Live Make up mode adds a smoothness and sheen to the skin of users after taking a selfie.

The Eye Experience will arrive in the next few months on the HTC One (M8), HTC One (M7), HTC One Mini, HTC One Mini 2, HTC One Max, HTC One E8, HTC Butterfly, HTC Desire 816 and HTC Butterfly.

Also during the Double Exposure event on Wednesday, which also saw the launch of the HTC RE camera, the company confirmed that its video collaboration app Zoe will be made available on Android and iOS devices.
