According to some rumors, the HTC Butterfly 3 should release in the second half of this year. The device probably will be exclusive to certain Asian markets, but it will be an interesting offering. Previously, there was a rumor that said that three color options will be available in Japan.
And now we get a complete list of specs for the Butterfly 3, thanks to a benchmark listing. Someone in with a prototype ran CompuBench, and that lists the most important hardware details for all devices.
It seems that the HTC Butterfly 3 runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop at the moment, and it has a 5.1-inch (and not 5.2″ as rumored at one point) QHD touchscreen, a 20 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 13 MP front snapper, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in storage.
Running things will be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 SoC, coming with a CPU with 1.9 GHz maximum clock speed. It will be an octa-core part in a big.LITTLE configuration, with four Cortex-A57 high-performance cores, and four Cortex-A53 power-saving ones.
However there isn’t any information about the design of the Butterfly 3, but its predecessors were all made out of plastic, so the same could happen here. We will have to wait and see.
