HTC Desire Eye and RE camera arriving in Malaysia on 5 December 2014
A month back, HTC announced the HTC RE, a GoPro competitor alongside its dual-13MP camera HTC Desire Eye. Now, both the devices are expected to hit the Malaysian markets on 5 December 2014. While GoPro is marketed as the camera for the adrenaline junkies, the new HTC RE is more of a professional camera for everyday use. It features a 16MP f/2.8 aperture Sony camera sensor with 146 degree wide angle lens. While it doesn't support 2K, you can record videos at FULL HD 1080p resolution at 30 fps and HD 720p resolution at 120 fps. The HTC RE comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options and is compatible with Android and iOS. There's an 820 mAh rechargeable battery on board, good enough for 1200 images or 1 hour 40 minutes of video shooting. The HTC Desire Eye is also a one of a kind product. It features a 13MP camera as well as dual LED flash on both the back and the front. Other tech specs like a Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage with MicroSD card slot and 2300 mAh battery are in line with the flagship smartphones available in the market. HTC has yet to announce the official Malaysia pricing and availability of both the devices but we should know more next week.
