During the recently concluded CES, Chinese smartphone maker ZTE announced it was working on a crowd-sourced smartphone dubbed Hawkeye. Ending the suspense, ZTE today further revealed the specifications.
The ZTE Hawkeye boasts cutting-edge features such as an eye-tracking sensor and self-adhesive back. It features a 5.5-inch Full HD display and runs Android Nougat out of the box.
Priced at $199, the device is powered by octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage (expandable up to 256B).
There are two cameras on the back (12MP + 13MP) and an 8MP shooter on the front. ZTE Hawkeye is backed by a 3,000 mAh battery with QuickCharge 2.0 technology.
ZTE launched the concept phone on Kickstarter last year. Previously announced as Project CSX, the phone’s highlight was the self-adhering case, which can hold the phone in place.
Another notable feature was the eye-tracking technology. Hawkeye will track a users’ eyes and translate eye movement into gestures.
ZTE is hoping it can begin shipping the phone by September.
