The Selfie, or self-portrait taken using a camera or smartphone, is fast becoming a global phenomenon. With over a million taken every day, it’s no wonder consumers find themselves under pressure to capture that elusive ‘perfect’ shot. Sadly however, many find today’s smartphone technology doesn’t equip them well enough to achieve this.
Introducing international celebrity fashion stylist, Alexis Knox – HTC’s Selfie Stylist. Armed with the new HTC Desire EYE and innovative RE camera, HTC is working with Alexis to help users do just that, capture the perfect selfie.
Combining a stunning 5.2” Full HD display and market-leading 13MP front and rear cameras for detailed image quality, the HTC Desire EYE is the ultimate selfie companion and the perfect way to take photos and videos. BSI sensors capture crisp photos – even in low-light conditions – and intelligent dual-LED flash on both cameras provides flattering, natural tones, even in low light conditions.
What’s more, the HTC EYE Experience software upgrade also includes unique selfie features such as Auto Selfie, Live Makeup, Photo Booth and Face Tracking, ensuring selfie subjects look flawless every time.
Alexis will also be stepping out from behind the camera with RE, HTC’s newest photography innovation. Re-imagining the point-and-shoot category, RE is a small handheld camera that allows you to naturally capture and fully experience the moment, through video and photography, without anything getting in the way.
Featuring a high-resolution, 16MP CMOS sensor, Full HD (1080p) video recording, 146 degree wide-angle lens and slow-motion and time lapse recording, RE will capture unique video selfie moments like never before. The RE app will also back everything up to your mobile device or the cloud automatically, so there’s no need to worry about running out of space and missing a shot.
HTC Selfie Stylist, Alexis Knox, said: “Taking the perfect selfie can be difficult at times, especially without the right tech, which is why I’m so excited to be working with HTC as their official Selfie Stylist. With all the great new technology featured in the HTC Desire EYE and RE camera, taking selfies has become a lot simpler. With features like an intelligent dual-LED flash on both front and back cameras, it’s now much more achievable to capture flattering images, even when ambient light levels drop. I’m really looking forward to hosting the online HTC #SelfieSchool and passing on my expertise and tech know-how, helping people to capture their best self”.
In her HTC Selfie Stylist video, filmed on location in London, Alexis gives a glimpse of her fashionable life and also officially launches the very first HTC #SelfieSchool. Alexis will respond to a selection of tweets that most need an HTC helping hand, ensuring they need never suffer an embarrassing selfie-snap again.
