HTC Butterfly 3 leaks on CompuBench, reveals 13MP selfie camera with 4K recording?
As has been the case for the past few years now, HTC will most likely once again differentiate its flagship offering for the Japanese market with a new Butterfly device, and not the One M9. Of course, at this point we can't confirm this, but a new HTC device, dubbed Butterfly 3 (J Butterfly HTV31) has been spotted making a pass through CompuBench, revealing specs in the process.

According to the benchmark, the HTC Butterfly 3 will rock a 5.1-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, good for a pixel density of 576 ppi. Interestingly enough, previous rumors have suggested a slightly larger, 5.2-inch panel, so it is possible that we're witnessing what is a typical GFXBench/CompuBench error, and the screen really is that large. Moving on, we're looking at Qualcomm's 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 810 with an Adreno 430 graphics and 3GB of RAM. The device has 32 gigs of built-in storage and makes use of a 20-megapixel main camera (most likely the same Toshiba sensor found in the One M9), along with, amazingly – a massive, 13-megapixel front camera that is apparently capable of shooting 4K UHD video.

Naturally, a specs sheet such as this would put the HTC Butterfly 3 at the very top of the food chain. Previous Butterfly devices have featured waterproofed bodies, so we can also assume that HTC will shoot for an IP certificate this time around as well. And, if the past is any indication, Japan will be treated to a significantly different-looking device than what the rest of the world has. HTC is expected to announce the Butterfly 3 by the end of May.

Seems like we either have to choose front-facing speakers/huge top and bottom bezels or back/bottom speakers and slim bezels.

For the love of god optimize the phacking camera software to match that 20mp camera. Its horrifying how bad the m9 take pics in auto mode. Can't keep playing with manual mode all the time.

Well it is built a lot differently from the m series phones(plastic, waterproof, etc.). Besides, the butterfly 2 was better than the m8

Yeah, but let's be honest, the Butterfly 3 will have huge bezels regardless. :)

The reason for all those big bezels is because HTC is still using old type screen ribbon connectors that take up a lot of space. Couple that with the BoomSound speaker, and there you have it. It's not so much about the BoomSound like they say. BoomSound speakers only take 1/3 (or so) of the bezels.
