Rumors regarding HTC’s newest focus on a smartphone with an impressive camera continue to swirl, and now a pair of tweets from another serial leaker aim to paint an even clearer picture of what’s coming.

The two tweets were recently published by account @Upleaks, and show what the account is calling the “Desire Eye” in several different angles and colors. Previously, it was revealed that HTC is indeed working on a smartphone with a 13-megapixel front-facing camera, but many believed that was actually the “M8 Eye.” According to recent reports, and corroborated by these latest tweets, that’s not the case. The “M8 Eye” and “Desire Eye” look to be two very distinct devices.

The tweets showcase a very Desire-like device, with rounded edges and a colorful selection to choose from, and the new device will probably have plenty of other similarities shared between that particular family of handsets. The real takeaway, though, is that this smartphone is supposed to launch with a 13-megapixel front-facing camera. On top of that, there will be another 13MP shooter on the back.

Other key features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz, a 5.2-inch 1080p HD display, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. It will also reportedly boast a 2400mAh removable battery, a microSD card slot, and be running HTC’s Sense 6 user interface above, more than likely, Android 4.4 KitKat.

While nothing is official quite yet, HTC is set to show off whatever it is they’re working on on October 8. The company has been teasing “something remarkable” for weeks now.
