Meet the new HTC Butterfly 2

HTC's latest flagship phone, the Butterfly 2, packs high-end specs such as a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB RAM and either 16 or 32GB of onboard storage.

The phone will be sold in Japan as the J Butterfly with some slight changes, such as the ability to play digital TV. Expect the Butterfly 2 to hit other markets in Asia as early as the end of August.

As this phone has support for most LTE bands in the world, there's hope you may see the Butterfly 2 in the US, UK and Australia too. HTC is yet to announce any price.

The Butterfly 2 has a water and dust resistance rating of IP57, but unlike other phones there isn't any rubber flap. Instead, the USB port and volume jack are exposed, but are waterproof and have short-circuit protection.

Like the One M8, the Butterfly 2 has a dual-camera system. Instead of the 4-megapixel "Ultrapixel" camera of the M8, however, it comes with a 13-megapixel shooter.

The phone has the front-facing "BoomSound" speakers we've loved on HTC's other flagships.
