It’s here: A new, iconic design that keeps you connected while also reflecting you. Unique colour options, a seamless look, a screen to personalize—all serving up people and passions that matter most.
World-class camera for the photographer in you. Capture twice the picture with the ultra-wide-angle front camera lens
How many times have you wanted to take a picture of you and your friends in front of somewhere cool, but the photo just captures your head and nothing of the background. Or, you don’t really get your friends in the shot, either. Get more people in the shot, including you! Now, easily fit more people in the shot with an exclusive 88° ultra-wide-angle front camera that captures nearly triple the area of most other front cameras. Enjoy more people, more background, more memories.
Capture the moment forever with instant activation (even from the lock screen).
Take amazing photos—even in low light
HTC ImageChip ensures you capture the highest-quality, crisp, true-to-life photos. The camera features our best-in-class f/2.0 lens, optimizing the experience for low-light, so your pictures will be great even when the lighting isn’t, such as dimly lit restaurants, indoor gatherings or at sunset.
Quickly capture every picture with the physical camera button
Capture the moment forever with instant activation (even from the lock screen!) with the distinctive external camera button. Instantly point, shoot, share.
Brilliant display in any viewing condition
Images look better than ever—even in direct sunlight or at off-center angles—on the HTC laminated display screen with its brilliant color and crisp contrast. The tough, lightweight, scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass screen fends off every day wear and tear so you enjoy a long-lasting beautiful, clear display.
