It has 2 GB RAM, and for the processing power, there will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset complied with a Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU, and an Adreno 330 GPU for gaming and graphics.

The phone will be available in Blue, Red and White color options in the market.
As already said, the 13 Megapixels front shooter is the most catchy part of this smartphone, and this phone is sure to be loved by those who love selfies.

This phone also has IPX7 certification as well- which makes it dust proof and water resistant up to 1 meter and 30 minutes. This phone will have the Eye Experience suite feature pre-installed. Another awesome feature of this phone is the Split Capture, which divides the photo 50/50 between front and back cameras, while Crop-Me-In creates a single photo with you photoshopped into the back camera image.
The HTC Desire Eye is set to be offered by AT&T exclusively at launch, but it will be available in the International markets very soon after its official release, which will probably be the midst of November. Nothing is said about the price yet, but we can assume it to be slightly higher than the HTC One M8. We will update you with any further information available, stay connected.
