Earlier this month, HTC announced that it would be holding an event on October 8 to unveil some sort of new product. At the time, the invite made it seem clear that it was some type of camera technology, with the invite teasing the “Double Exposure” event. A week later, Bloomberg corroborated the speculation, claiming that HTC would announce a GoPro-like camera compatible with Android devices. HTC this evening, published a teaser video of the event, showing off action footage from a camera.
The video shows a woman recording footage under water, signaling that it has some sort of water-resistant capabilities, as well as footage while playing soccer, riding a bike, and watching street performers. Almost all of the footage is shot from a first-person perspective, much like with a GoPro. It also appears to be using a wide-angle lens.
Along with posting the teaser video, HTC also linked to www.recamera.com, a potential name for the device. The Twitter account @re_camera also tweeted the following after the video went live:
The event is set to take place on October 8th in New York City, so we should know much more when the time comes.
