Taiwanese company HTC’s Butterfly 2 smartphone with 4G LTE support has been certified by the NCC, the Taiwanese Commission that is like the FCC of US. It is confirmed that the smartphone certified by NCC is the HTC Butterfly 2 model number B810x.
HTC’s Butterfly series was launched a few years back followed by the HTC One series in 2013. The HTC One Max is the new phablet of HTC and many presumed that the HTC had discontinued its Butterfly series. However, now there is news that HTC is coming out with the next in Butterfly series, the HTC Butterfly 2. We expect the Butterfly 2 to have many special features because when the HTC Butterfly was introduced back in 2012, it was the first device in the market to sport a Full HD 1080p display.
The HTC Butterfly 2 certified for Taiwan supports four network bandwidths: GSM, WCDMA LTEE 700MHz, LTE 800MHz and LTE 1,900MHz. The new smartphone also has Bluetooth, NFC and WLAN. Earlier in May, the front panels of the Butterfly 2 were leaked.
Exact specifications of the HTC butterfly 2 are not known but according to rumors, it will feature a 5-inch 1080p Full HD display, Qualcomm 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. It will be available in Black, Silver, Red and Brown colors.
Although the availability of the HTC Butterfly 2 has not been revealed, it is presumed that the launching will be in the near future as it has already been passed by NCC. Pricing of the handset is not known. It is also not known whether or when the device will be launched in other countries. Some reports suggest that the device will be launched in other select Asian markets including Hong Kong and Japan.
Stay tuned for further updates.
