HTC Butterfly 2, HTC Butterfly J 2 revealed from OTA test?

HTC Butterfly 2, HTC Butterfly J 2 revealed from OTA test?
A previous over the air test of the HTC Butterfly reveals the codename DLXPLUS. Considering that the original codename for the HTC Butterfly was DLX, this could be a clue that there will be a sequel to the 5 inch FHD HTC Android handset. The information from the test shows that there are three different variants of the DLXPLUS that would translate into three different models of the HTC Butterfly 2 for different regions. For example, the DLXPLUS_WL (DLXP_WL) would probably be the model intended for Verizon. That would make this version of the phone the HTC DROID DNA 2. It has a part number of PO68100.

Other variants listed include the DLXPLUS_UL (DLXP_UL) which is expected to be an LTE enabled model with a part number of PO68200. Lastly is the DLXPLUS_U (DLXP_U) which has a part number of PO68220. This is believed to be a model of the HTC Butterfly 2 with support for CDMA and WCDMA networks and as such, would be the global version of the device.

In Japan, HTC released the HTC Butterfly J last year. Therefore, the DLXPLUS_WLJ (DLXPLUS_J) would no doubt be the HTC Butterfly J 2 for Japanese carrier KDDI. All of the models will apparently be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 according to the information from the testing.

actually i think this is gonna be more like the competitor to the Note 3 rather than another flagship.. main phone is the One that it. you can tell cause last year when they anunced the One X they anunced the One V and the One S as well.. did that wrong since the attention was not all on the One X so now i think they will do better, so far the One has had very good reviews

Went to HTC One launch in Jakarta, they showed the Butterfly as well, and made it clear that the two devices are on different class. The One is their flagship, much like the S4 is to Samsung, and the Butterfly is for those who needs bigger screen and IPX5 protection, and it is in the same segment as the Note.

You HTC fanbase all assume that anyone that favors Samsung over HTC is a paid student.

HTC should really learn something from Samsung and Sony about timespan for releasing Flagship devices.

I am pretty sure this phone is for Japan only. not for the rest of the world yet. Japanese world only.

True, but I believe Butterfly from last year was released in Japan first... Then Taiwan and Verizon.

J Butterfly were made for the Japanese and they are enjoying their device since November and when device will see the light, we might already crossed that 1 year.

Those aren't flagship samsung devices. Samsung has 2 flagship phones, the Galaxy s4 and Note 2 right now.

If the Japanese are buying the butterfly J, Then you can asure that the butterfly was one of the best smartphone on market. Or else, it wouldn't even survived the smartphone battle in Japan. hope the new butterfly make another dominance of the high quality screen resolution again. Set the bar higher!!!

Nope, it'll be called HTC One Two... Next one will be called One Two Three... the combination is infinite!!!

Could this be headed to Verizon? Could Verizon actually receive the best first?

You think they will put an improved ultrapixel camera on this phone?

9. torr310

Don't think so, production issue for ultrapixel is just relieved, don't think the next version of ultrapixel will be out so soon.

I think it will for japanese market only. As the butterfly was never aimed for outside of japan. But it such a big pop, so htc brought it to the rest of the world... But you know I love my new HTC one! The phone is so nice and it's hard to describe the experience of using it and holding it on my hand. It's almost like the first time when you hold the iphone4 feels revolutionary. when often, people look at me and my phone like ' wow.. that's badass phone!'

Well best thing we can do now is to wait for the official announcement...its not a big deal for me anyway...my mind now is set to get the htc one..God i really cant wait till next week! :)

The way you sound... makes it almost seems like you were paid to say it. I'm still waiting to see if I could get an actual phone to play with at the retail stores. All Costco have is a dummy phone with a piece of plastic for screen.

This is why you suck HTC. You won't give a flagship model more than 1 or at most two updates, but you will roll out new phones week after week. THIS IS WHY YOU ARE FAILING. GET A HINT YOU IDIOTS. Stuff like this is what confirms my decision to move on from you, speaking as what was a long time customer.
