HTC Butterfly 2: Alleged Photos Leaked Ahead of International Release

By Anuj

    Acclaimed Taiwan-based handset maker HTC has been rumored to launch a plethora of devices later this year, including the next-gen tablet under the Nexus brand.

    So far, the makers behind the G1 handset have not been vocal about the International release of the J Butterfly, which went on sale in Japan last month.

    HTC Butterfly 2: Alleged Photos Leaked Ahead of International Release


    If the latest reports are anything to go by, HTC will soon launch the stylish looking Butterfly 2 in select markets soon. The existing J Butterfly is exclusive to the Japanese carrier KDDI.

    The first-gen Butterfly handset was initially launched in Japan back in 2012 - it later went on sale in many part of the world, including India. Sadly Indian users rejected the world's first 5-inch FHD handset citing expensive price tag. Last year, HTC unveiled the Butterfly S for Asian markets.

    HTC Butterfly 2 To Go Official Soon

    Inspired by the One (M8), the Butterfly 2 will inherit the same features as the new J Butterfly does. Today, the leaked images of the upcoming high-end handset confirm the existence of the Butterfly 2. The new handset makes an early appearance, courtesy of @upleaks. The waterproof device has been shown in number of authentic photos.

    Spec-wise, the Butterfly 2 shouldn't be different from the new J Butterfly in respect of specs and design. It might get launched with a 5-inch FHD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage, a microSD card slot, a 13MP rear-facing camera (unfortunately, no duo "ultra-pixel" camera), a 5MP front-facing shooter, among other incremental features.

    The handset will run on the latest Android 4.4 kitkat with HTC's native Sense 6.0 UI slap on top. Apparently it will come with a 2700mAh battery fitted inside. The device will be supported by LTE connectivity.


    HTC will reportedly launch a Windows Phone 8.1 version of its famed One (M8) on August 19 in New York. The company is also preparing to release the One (M8) Max handset with a giant display and a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor under the hood. The leaked device could be the long rumored HTC One (M8) Prime.
