HTC's next Butterfly smartphone might have leaked to the Web before its time.

Images purportedly of the HTC Butterfly 2 cropped up on the Web over the weekend, showing what appears to be three color options -- blue, white, and black. The images also show what appears to be a tall, large display, matching rumors that the handset could come with a 5.2-inch screen. There's also talk of the device featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

HTC's Butterfly isn't necessarily a household name in the US, but has proven successful in Asia and other parts of the world. HTC launched an upgrade to its original Butterfly earlier this year, and called the update the Butterfly S. It's believed that the next handset will be known as the Butterfly 2.

For its part, HTC has remained tight-lipped on any plans it might have for a future Butterfly handset. It's believed, however, that the device could be unveiled soon.

CNET has contacted HTC for comment on the leak. We will update this story when we have more information.
