The information about the availability of this update has been leaked by prolific leakster LlabTooFeR via Twitter, while a YouTube video (below) explains the new features introduced by the HTC Eye Experience for HTC One M8 users.
The video has been recorded in some non-English version and hence you may have difficulty in interpreting the narration.
Nevertheless, HTC has given a clear description on each of these new features, as listed below:
The HTC Eye experience provides innovative enhancement for taking photos and making videos.
- Face Tracking – Track up tp 4 faces during a video chat
- Split Capture : Record the action in front of you and yourself at the same time
- Face Fusion: Using 2 photos such as your selfie and a photo of your favorite celebrity, try blending your look together.
- Voice Selfie: Take a picture or video selfie by just saying "cheese" or "action"
- Live makeup: Smoothen your skin before taking your selfie.
It is not yet clear if this is partial test release or part of the global rollout. Nevertheless, those who cannot wait for its official release or want to install the latest KitKat update manually can download the update from here.
