If you happen to own an HTC One M8 and find yourself admiring the spanking new Desire Eye and its Eye Experience camera features, well, power down that admiration machine, friend.
As promised, HTC has brought Eye Experience to the One M8, along with - what is for now - the latest version of Android.
We didn’t expect Eye Experience to land on the HTC One M8 quite so soon, the various features having been announced alongside the Desire Eye late on Wednesday night.
But it’s rolling out now in software build 3.28.401.6, a 252MB download that also encompasses KitKat Android 4.4.4.
Other phones marked for the Eye Experience update include the HTC One (M7), HTC One E8, HTC One mini, HTC One mini 2, HTC One max, HTC Desire 816, HTC Desire 820 and HTC Butterfly 2.
Arguably a bit silly, as it means owners of those phones are less likely to rush out and grab an HTC Desire Eye. But what the heck do I know?
In any case, Eye Experience features include Split Capture (a simultaneous front and rear shot), Crop-Me-In (add your face to an existing shot), Photo Booth (create a chain of four pics), Auto Selfie (keep the camera still for a couple of seconds to take), Voice Selfie (say “cheese” for pics; “rolling” or “action” for video), Video Face Tracking (automatically assigns each face in a conference call its own window), and Live Makeup (software-based skin smoothening).
Software version 3.28.401.6 should be available now for owners of the European HTC One M8. To check manually, go to Settings > About > Software Updates.
