While HTC has unveiled two smartphones from the “Desire” line-up during the Mobile World Congress, the company continues to keep the big guns concealed. We’re evidently referring to the direct successor of the HTC One, also known as the “HTC M8” or the “New HTC One”. The device is on its way though, and the Taiwanese manufacturer already took a swing or two at the Samsung Galaxy S5, smack talking on Twitter, saying that the Korean manufacturer should prepare to be “One-upped”.
In any case, the big news today is that, HTC might also have an HTC Butterfly S successor in the works. Yup, the HTC One (series) is better known on the international market, but we shouldn’t forget that the Butterfly series is also a fully-fledged top-tier device that has introduced the 1080p display to the mobile market. More details below.
HTC Butterfly S Successor In The Works
We’ve just gathered some interesting bits of information concerning HTC’s future plans, and according to the source, the Taiwanese manufacturer is now working on a Butterfly S successor which currently boasts the “GLU2” code name. Based on the fact that the device seems to work on CDMA2000, the handset appears to be designed for the Japanese carrier KDDI.
Aside from that, the smartphone appears to pack similar specs to those that are supposedly making the M8 tick. This includes a full HD 5.2 inch display delivered by SHARP (maybe IGZO?), a Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 16 / 32 GB of storage expandable via microSD, a 5 MP UltraPixel dual-camera complemented by a front-facing 5 MP sensor and a 3,000 mAh battery to keep everything up and running.
This mysterious Butterfly is also rumored to come with Android 4.4.x on-board, sprinkled with a new Sense 6.0 user interface on top.
We should point out that the source is one of the most renowned HTC leakers and has a great track record. That being said, chances are that the details above are pretty accurate. Of course, there’s no way to be sure, so stick around and we’ll give you the details as they develop further.
