Looks like there's no room for any stoppages for Taiwan-based smartphone maker HTC yet. It's been a little over a week since the global launch of HTC One (M8).
And now, we've heard that the company might launch the successor to its super-hit smartphone the HTC Butterfly S in the coming months.
Yes, you heard it right! It seems that HTC is looking to replace the HTC Butterfly with a new flagship model.
Recently, a device carrying the model number OPAJ3 made an appearance in the AnTuTu benchmark database. Of course, the handset appears to have high-end specs, and the HTC Butterfly 2 can be expected to be seen the near future. This new model will likely replace the current one.
By and large, the model number OPAJ3 hints at the possible successor to the HTC Butterfly S.
According to the AnTuTu database, the HTC OPAJ3 would come with a Full HD 1080 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of on-board memory. The handset might run Android 4.4.2 Kitkat out the box.
Amusingly, the phone is said to have a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera , instead of the UltraPixel camera of the HTC One (M8). There's a 5MP front-facing shooter .
The HTC Butterfly S2 has made multiple appearances on the web via leaked renders.
