HTC Logo

In addition to the highly anticipated HTC One Max, HTC may already be working on a future Android smartphone, a second-generation HTC Butterfly model.

According to existing reports, the HTC Butterfly will be launched at some point in the first quarter of 2014 – maybe as soon as January – and the handset is said to be waterproof.

Furthermore, the HTC Butterfly 2 is rumored to sport a 5.2-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

Finally, C Technology has published a set of images that reportedly show the front panel of the handset. If real, these images seem to confirm that the handset will be available in multiple colors including white, black and blue.

The front panel has HTC’s logo on top and seems to be similar to the HTC Butterfly’s front panel to some extent. Interestingly, instead of three buttons under the display there only appear to be two of them on the Butterfly 2 with a (microphone?) hole present in the middle.

We’ll be back with more details about this rumored HTC Butterfly 2 handset once we have them.

        Well, I was not referring to the colors, I was referring to the magical iOS7 ability to make devices waterproof….

        • Amine Elouakil

          I’m sorry I thought you were refering to the colors, I doubt HTC will pull an iOS7 waterproof ability on us.

    knowing htc it probably won’t have sdcard slot.. I’ll stick with waterproof sony.

    • sluring

      The previous Butterflies have had SD card slots, why shouldn’t this one?

      However, they will probably do everything they can to prevent us from buying it, just as before.
      I had to order my Butterfly S from Hong Kong.

    So One Max or the Butterfly 2?

    If true, sad. Though I’m not surprised, they ruined the number one thing I like about the Butterfly (my DNA) vs the One: Correct Android 3 button layout.
