HTC Butterfly 2 appears in press render, hinting international release
The HTC Butterfly 2 will be treading globally, too, it seems, if the latest press render that seeped through is to be believed. Released recently as the J Butterfly only for the Japanese carrier KDDI, the phone will likely make an international cameo as well. This is not a bad idea on HTC's part at all, as the original Droid DNA was the first phone with a 1080p display, and rolled through many other countries as the Butterfly with relative success.
The Butterfly 2 sports the screen and processor specs of the One (M8), but eschews the unibody aluminum chassis for plastic, like in the One E8. That's for a pretty good reason, too, as the Butterfly sequel is said to be waterproof, joining in the ranks of liquid-tight flagships these days. Last, but not least, the phone sports a 13 MP rear camera with a Sony sensor, rather than the 4 MP Duo UltraPixel combo which some show as the main downside of HTC's current flagship.
