htc-butterfly2-press-renderIn the world of upcoming devices, one particular smartphone, tablet or notebook cannot be confirmed until an official announcement or unveiling has been made. Until then, everything else would remain as a rumor, despite how close to the real thing it looks like or is described as. Take the HTC Butterfly 2 for instance, it does look as though it will emerge from its cocoon in due time, and what you see above is a press render of the alleged device, which was recently introduced as the J Butterfly over on KDDI in Japan.

The HTC Butterfly 2 will carry some similar hardware specifications as that of its current flagship, the HTC One (M8), although it will not sport a similar unibody aluminum chassis but rather rely on plastic to get the job done, just like the HTC One E8.

Is there a reason for making it look one class lower than the existing flagship device? Perhaps, since the HTC Butterfly 2 has been whispered to be waterproof in order to keep up with the times, and having a plastic body does make plenty of sense in the long run. Oh yeah, other hardware specifications that are said to keep the HTC Butterfly 2 company would be a 13MP shooter at the back which sports a Sony sensor.
