HTC is expected to launch the third iteration of the Butterfly smartphone this year, as several rumors and leaks have indicated. The smartphone has now made an appearance on a benchmark site, revealing some of its hardware specifications. According to this leak, the smartphone will indeed sport a 2K resolution display, coupled with 3GB of RAM and an octa core Snapdragon 810 SoC.
It seems like HTC is unshaken by reports of the Snapdragon 810 overheating, with the One M9 said to be a victim of the case on multiple occasions. The Butterfly 3 is also said to be packing a 20.7-megapixel camera on the back, much like the One M9. Fulfilling the selfie duties will be a massive 13-megapixel camera on the front, so it seems like the Butterfly 3 will be a powerful device.
As we’ve seen in the past, this model might remain an exclusive to the Asian markets, so don’t get your hopes up if you live outside of Asia. There’s no word on whether the smartphone will carry a fingerprint scanner on board like the One M9+, but we won’t be surprised if it did.
