Purported HTC Butterfly sequel shows up in AnTuTu, no UltraPixels in sight
Another interesting discovery comes out of the benchmark zone. It's the purported sequel to the HTC Butterfly, better known in the USA as the Verizon-exclusive HTC Droid DNA. Looking at the leaked spec sheet, it seems this phone will finally answer the prayers of those of you who have a beef with HTC's UltraPixel camera technology. The so-called HTC 0PAJ3 features a 1080p display, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU clocked at 2.3Ghz, an Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, a 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP front camera. The phone runs Android 4.4.2.

Sadly, the J in the model number is a dead giveaway that the Butterfly sequel is being primed for Japan. This could also explain why HTC decided to leave the 4MP UltraPixel camera at home and pack a 13MP sensor for Japan - megapixel count is rather important for Japanese customers.

If the Butterfly 2 is for real, it's interesting how HTC has chosen to approach its design - will it be a spin on the HTC One and (M8)'s metal armor, or something different? It's too early to know and, unfortunately, we can only speculate whether the Butterfly 2 will reach the US market in some form, while Europe is pretty much a no-go - the original Butterfly never landed there.

Thanks for the tip!
