HTC Butterfly 3 with 5.2-inch 1440x2560 display rumored by @upleaks
While we already have two wallpapers sourced (allegedly) from the HTC One M9 that seemingly confirm a 1080x1920 resolution for the upcoming flagship, a new @upleaks tweet claims the company is eyeing a 5.2-inch 1440x2560 (QHD) screen for another unannounced smartphone, the HTC Butterfly 3. That would make for a crisp, crazy pixel-dense display, but the question is are we going to see it on the global market? HTC Butterfly smartphones are known to be an Asian region exclusive, designed primarily with Japan and China's specs-intensive markets in mind. 

That's a good question, as previous rumors have pointed towards an HTC One M9 Plus with a large 5.5-inch QHD screen as its centerpiece. Which leads to another question - what will HTC announce at its March 1st event? With new Desire phones, Butterfly phones, flagship phones, and its first-ever wearables in the pipeline, the little Taiwanese company that could might end up with the biggest round of product announcements at MWC 2015.

QHD is totally useless on 5.2 inch

For now it is, especially that it will give poor battery life and slow performance. But smartphones are evolving, i wouldn't want a smartphone that still has full hd in 2020. Screen have to change

How is QHD evolution? It has 0 advantages, you could't tell the difference at this screen size. It just slows down the phone and drains battery.

5.2" device as tall as a 6". I have never seen that much top and bottom bezel on a phone.

The m8 has two front facing speakers. The z2 and z3 this time had two speakers but they didnt slim off the bezels. Sony makes a much more hideous bezel than htc

I wonder if this is why we've been seeing random leaks of a 5.2" QHD One M9. Makes more sense to have the 5" FHD M9, 5.5" QHD M9 Max, and this phone.
