HTC Butterfly 2 4G certified by Taiwan's FCC equivalent

HTC Butterfly 2 4G certified by Taiwan's FCC equivalent
The unannounced HTC Butterfly 2 4G has received certification from the NCC. That is the Taiwanese equivalent of the FCC. The model number is the B810x and the phone will have support for GSM, WCDMA LTE 700MHz, LTE 800MHz and LTE 1900MHz. According to the NCC, the handset will offer NFC, Bluetooth and WLAN connectivity.

A sequel to the HTC Butterfly, which was known in the U.S. as the HTC DROID DNA, a Verizon exclusive, has been rumored for some time. In April, a version of the HTC Butterfly 2 4G, headed for Japan, showed up on the AnTuTu site wearing a 5 inch display with resolution of 1080 x 1920. This model is powered by a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. A 13MP snapper is on back with a 5MP front-facing camera.

The NCC certification indicates that the device could launch soon. But we don't expect to see this model outside Asia. The manufacturer still has the HTC One (M8) as its flagship handset, and with the HTC One (M8) Prime having been scrapped, it will remain up to the former to battle the Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3 for the top spot among Android top sellers this summer.

Thanks for the tip!

Why does HTC continue to put on BETTER cameras for phones outside of the US? From last year's M7 to this year's M8, most HTC flagship supporters have been clamoring for a NON-ULTRA pixel camera...HTC are you listening?

Maybe no. The 13MP cameras of HTC E8 and HTC M8 Mini are even more crappy than the gimmickry UltraPickle 4MP camera. Check this review out.

because they want to keep losing their market share and have their sales going downhill...

So is this the Taiwan's version of the HTC E8 or are they seperate devices? And when will we see something like that over in the States? Or will the LTE be compatible so we can import them?

I'm guessing this butterfly 2 is the one with a 5.2 qhd display. The E8 might just be another handset

If you looked into reviews for these HTC 13 mp camera sensors... they aren't any good. Pixels doesn't mean a great picture. Do some research, though, having the extra detail doesn't exactly hurt either.

HTC just needs to invest in some serious camera tech, not just bigger pixels. Try combining both.

Asus' implementation is actually a combination: you have a 13 Mpx Camera, with a special mode that "combines" the sensor pixels so it gives a 4Mpx image with 300% more light!

The continued failure of HTC is sad to watch. It a lesson to all of us that "almost brilliant" sometimes leads only to fail after fail after fail. Why HTC is incapable of getting a quality camera/sensor module from Sony is beyond me. They could have used the same module as the G2 or G3 and the HTC One M8 would have been a much stronger offering. Oh well.

I would hardly call the M8 a "fail". Although camera is far from the best, it's really not that bad. On other specs it's at least on par with every other flagship phone and it has some features that are better as well. Unless you are getting a phone to take professional grade photos, the M8 is an excellent choice.

I'm so excited for this, if this turns out to be better than the m8 I might trade it in for a butterfly 2
