Here is everything we know about the HTC U11 Eyes

Last year, HTC brought us three smartphones -- the HTC U11 and U11 Plus, along with the HTC U11 Life. Now, rumors hint there will reportedly be a new addition to the lineup known as the HTC U11 Eyes. Here's everything we know…

With a 21-megapixel front-facing camera, the Meitu V4 ensures your trip to selfie heaven

Chinese outfit Meitu introduced the V4, an Android-powered smartphone that packs a whopping 21-megapixel camera on the front. At $548, the V4 isn't exactly cheap, but for some, it's almost impossible to put a price on selfies.
