HTC One M8 Eye passes through TENAA ahead of October 8 launch

HTC One M8 Eye passes through TENAA ahead of October 8 launchRumours and leaks oftentimes paint a remarkably accurate picture of as-yet-unannounced smartphones, but even still, the HTC One M8 Eye is one of the worst kept secrets in recent memory.

Before making its official debut at Double Exposure (seriously, is there any point?), the HTC One M8 Eye has passed its TENAA exam over in China.

For those unfamiliar with TENAA (nothing to do with TENA Lady, incidentally), it’s essentially the Chinese equivalent of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), where new phones are given the stamp of approval before being unleashed upon the unsuspecting (or fully suspecting, in this case) public.

An accompanying trio of mugshots confirms exactly what we’ve been told to date: that the HTC One M8 Eye looks nigh on identical to the One M8 we already know and love. Heck, even the dimensions are the same at 146 × 70.6 × 9.4 mm.

For what it’s worth, the HTC One M8 Eye is slightly lighter than the base model, at 157g vs. 160g. For the record, 3g is lighter than a sheet of A4 paper. True story.

The only difference, again, is the rear camera. Where the HTC One M8 has a 4MP UltraPixel camera, the HTC One M8 Eye will have a more orthodox snapper at 13MP.

Double Exposure goes down on Wednesday next week, where we’re also expecting to meet a waterproof action camera.

This isn't the eye. The eye will look nothing like an M8. More like a desire product.

So... um... the Desire 816 does not look a 'bit' like a One M7/M8????

How do you know this, given it's called M8 and not Desire?

Mrew... that IS a puzzling comment, right?! :D
I'm still not sure I understood correctly what s/he was trying to say...

By the powers of deduction.
