For those unfamiliar with HTC’s practices, the company tends to release a variant of their phones in Japan under the “Butterfly” lineup. Last year the company announced the HTC J Butterfly and it looks like this year they are back with a successor. Interestingly enough HTC did not name the device the HTC J Butterfly 3, but rather the HTC J Butterfly HTV31.
Like we said the Butterfly variant is typically for the Japanese market so it is unlikely that we will see it stateside, and if we do, it’ll most probably come with a different name. That being said, this phone appears to pack quite a punch and has some specs that we’re sure that many were hoping was present in the flagship HTC One M9.
Starting with the display, the handset will feature a 5.2-inch screen with a WQHD resolution. Under the hood it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and will come with 3GB of RAm, a 2,700mAh battery, and will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop. In the camera department, the phone will feature a 20.2MP DUO camera with 4K video recording, and a 13MP front-facing camera.
This seems to be a mixture between the HTC One M9 and the One M9 Plus where we have the QHD display but with Snapdragon chipset instead of MediaTek. Pricing and availability have yet to be determined.
