Selfie-themed smartphones are starting to gain momentum and despite being a novelty, this new fad may come with some benefits. Pictured above is an alleged photo of an unannounced HTC handset referred to as the “Desire Eye.” Revealed via Twitter by up-and-coming phone leaker @upleaks, this handset reportedly packs an intriguing dual 13-megapixel camera setup, with the device’s front-facing shooter being accompanied by an flash for those nighttime selfies.

As for the rest of the phone’s hardware, you can expect a 5.2-inch HD display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage space and a removable 2,400mAh battery. If these specs hold true, we’re looking at what might be the most impressive entry in HTC’s mid-range Desire series. In addition to Desire Eye, @upleaks is claiming that HTC will soon add special selfie-themed software enhancements to several of its smartphones in the near future.
