Taiwanese smartphone maker, HTC is reportedly planning to launch the recently unveiled Desire Eye and RE camera in India this week.

The company has begun sending out invites to select media houses for an event scheduled for 17 October in Mumbai.

Going by the title -'Double Exposure' on the invitation received by BGR India, HTC in all probability will launch the Desire Eye and RE Camera, because the New York City event held last week (9 October) too was named- Double Exposure.
