HTC on Monday unveiled a brand new Android smartphone that buyers may like, but which won’t be widely available, at least for the time being, the HTC J Butterfly HTL23 (as it’s known in Japan), or HTC Butterfly 2 (as it’ll be sold in Taiwan, Hong Kong and other South Asian markets).
The HTC Butterfly 2 isn’t HTC’s One (M8) successor, but it certainly has some interesting specs to offer users. The phone comes with a 5-inch Full HD display, 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB of storage, microSD support, 13-megapixel Duo Camera camera (without the UltraPixels), 5-megapixel front-facing camera, LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, NFC, GPS, GLONASS, dual front stereo speakers with HTC BoomSound, 2,700mAh embedded battery and Android KitKat with HTC Sense on top.
The phone measures 145.4 x 70.2 x 9.99mm, weighs 151g and has IP55 and IP57 water resistance and dustproof certification. For what it’s worth, the device isn’t made of metal, but plastic, and will ship in at least three colors.
The HTC Butterfly 2 will be available in Asia starting with September 2, although pricing details for the handset aren’t available at this time.
