HTC One M8 gets “HTC EYE” camera improvements

Android, HTC, Mobile phones

Good news for HTC One M8 owners: Your camera is about the get better.


So last week HTC revealed a 13 megapixel Selfie phone, which in addition to beefed up hardware has a raft of software and apps to make the most of your photos. Excellently, HTC is rolling out these software improvements to M8 owners too.

Here’s how Into Mobile describes the updates:

“Included as part of the newly announced Desire EYE firmware, the HTC EYE Experience brings along a number of camera software enhancements. These include Face Tracking, which allows the front-facing camera to track the faces of up to 4 people and keep them in focus; Split Capture, that makes use of both the front and the rear cameras and combines the resulting image into a handy collage; and Face Fusion, a feature that allows users to make a mashup between their selfie and another portrait image.”

The 252mb update is already rolling out to some users now, though depending on your network it may need carrier approval, which could take some time.
