Before HTC launched the Desire EYE earlier in the week there were widespread rumors that the company's One M8 EYE would also land. However, the Taiwanese company said that the M8 EYE would be landing solely in Asia, at least for now, and the Desire EYE would be global. That has proved the case today as the One M8 EYE has launched in China on the company?s official store within the country.

Unlike the Desire EYE, the M8 variant is not a device built from the ground up but is instead a variant of the normal One M8 flagship. That means you get the same fantastic all-metal design and the high flagship specs of the normal M8, but with a new camera setup.

The EYE gets a 13 megapixel dual lens instead of the opinion dividing 4MP UltraPixel lens on the original M8 flagship. And that's it, no other changes are expected. So, have you been waiting all this time to get the One M8, holding off because of the camera? I doubt many have, and the truth is most people who want this handset have already bought it before it was the EYE and just rocked the 4MP lens.

As for other specs, there is a 5-inch 1080p screen with a pixel per inch of 441ppi, a 2.5GHz Krait 400 (the international M8 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801) with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of on board storage. Elsewhere there is a microSD card slot for extra storage up to 128GB and a 2600 mAh battery. It also gets the new EYE Experience camera software that adds a host of new features to the standard HTC camera software.

The handset will go on sale in China on October 15th and will cost 3,999 Chinese Yuan, or about $652.
