HTC is gearing up for an 8th October event and the two smartphones are expected to be candidates at the event. Now, thanks to India’s export/import government agency’s website, we are able to extract the prices of the smartphones even before they are announced.
The HTC One (M8) Eye was listed as 27,035 rupees (roughly $440), costing as low as half of a 16GB Apple iPhone 6 which is expected to break cover in India later this month. The smartphone will come as a 13MP camera reincarnation of the HTC One (M8) which comes with a 4MP ultrapixel camera.
Lastly comes the HTC Desire Eye, a smartphone with a 13-megapixel front-facing wideangle camera. The phone will cost in the region of $350 if the Zuaba listing is to be trusted.
Elsewhere, HTC is involved in making the next generation Nexus tablet for Google. The Google Nexus 9 will break cover with Android 5.0 Lollipop and the Motorola-manufactured Google Nexus X smartphone on the 15th of this month.
