HTC said that the Desire EYE takes mobile imaging software into a new league with unique features and capability.    Crop-Me-In is currently only available on the HTC Desire EYE

The HTC EYE technology is capable of face tracking four people at once while keeping all of the images perfectly framed.

Each face can be cropped and positioned on the screen for maximum clarity. 

A new Split Capture function combines simultaneous photos and videos taken on the front and back cameras into one split-screen image or video, this creates a new selfie experience without relying on thumbnail views.

Crop-Me-In places a person at the heart of the action by cropping you from the image or video taken with the front-facing camera and positioning it within the scene captured by the main camera, opening the door to more extreme, exciting selfies and videos said HTC. 

Voice Selfie removes the need for awkward hand contortions by enabling you to trigger the shutter release with a simple command. Simply “say cheese” as soon as you’ve struck the perfect pose or trigger the video recording with “action” or “rolling” commands. 

Popular additions to the HTC Desire 820 are also included in the HTC EYE Experience such as face fusion, the feature that allows you to merge your face with that of a friend or celebrity for a completely original look and Live Makeup, where you can set the desired level of skin smoothing and preview the effect in real-time before the image is captured. 


With the new Zoe collaborative video-editing app it’s easy to remix your photos and videos into stylish highlight reels, with themes and soundtracks that can be shared. 

The Zoe content engine will be available later this year.
