Don’t be surprised if HTC starts calling itself a camera company. Following up on the success of its One M8 and Desire 816 phones which are considered by many as the best smartphone cameras around, the company from Taiwan has announced a small handheld camera called the RE with a 16MP CMOS sensor and a new HTC Desire EYE smartphone with 13MP front and rear cameras.

The RE is a new product category for HTC with the small smoking pipe-like camera coming with the ability to record Full HD (1080p) videos with time lapse and slow motion. The camera will have 146 degree wide-angle lens and will comperte with the like of the GoPro Hero 4 which has just hit the market. The camera will come with a remote viewfinder app so that you can control it from a smart device. The RE is priced $199 in the US.

The HTC Desire EYE on the other hand pushes smartphone photography to a whole new level by giving similar cameras in the front and the rear for the same time. The camera will be a huge plus for the selfie culture that is engulfing smartphone users all over the world. With BSI sensors the cameras on the phone will be good for low-light photos.
