Sprint's HTC One M8 has received an over-the-air update that gives that 4 "Ultrapixel" camera a boost. No, it doesn't magically cram in more pixels into those photos, but it does greatly expand just what you can do with the shooter on both the front and the back of the device. This comes courtesy of the new HTC Eye Experience.

These software enhancements, which HTC showed off at a selfie-themed event where it unveiled the Desire EYE, introduce a number of innovations that actually catch our interest. There's face tracking for video chats, split capturing (which records through both cameras at once), auto/voice seflies, and several other features. HTC has released no shortage of videos that go into each one in-depth.

Also, owners will see their devices bumped up to Android 4.4.4.

What's new:

  • Android KitKat 4.4.4
  • EYE Experience
    • Face Tracking
    • Split Capture
    • Face Fusion
    • Voice Selfie
    • Live Makeup
    • Photo Booth

The OTA brings devices to software version 3.30.651.2.

M81 M82

As usual, the update is going out in stages. So if it has yet to arrive, try to be patient. Your selfies will get much better soon enough.

Thanks Lee Goss.
