ZTE might kill the Hawkeye project
Last Friday, ZTE announced the end of the Kickstarter campaign for the eye-tracking-capable handset known as Hawkeye. However, some of its features might end up reaching the market soon after all, but for now, ZTE is busy redesigning the whole device.
ZTE said the following: "Based on the feedback we've received on both Kickstarter and our own Z-Community forum, we've decided to phase out this campaign; however, this doesn't mean the project is over." Fortunately, they also added that the idea behind the Project CSX - "an eye-tracking feature with self adhesive backing" might live on in another product and will be implemented based on the feedback provided by those interested in the Hawkeye handset.
Since most of those who provided their feedback mentioned they would gladly pay more for a specs bump, ZTE decided to refund the early backers. Now, it only remains to see how fast can they bring the phone back on Kickstarter or anywhere else.
