HTC Preps Butterfly S Successor, Codenamed GLU2

Following the launch of new Desire smartphones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, HTC Corporation might bring to the market a successor for the Butterfly S as well, to accompany the upcoming All New HTC One on shelves.

The smartphone has reportedly leaked only under the codename of GLU2, featuring support for CDMA2000 connectivity, and supposedly set to make an official appearance in Japan on the network of wireless carrier KDDI. What’s more interesting is the fact that this mobile phone is expected to land on shelves with about the same hardware specifications expected to be included inside the All New HTC One device, which was previously spotted online as HTC M8. Thus, users might be able to enjoy a 5.2-inch touchscreen display when buying the phone, capable of delivering a full HD resolution, at least this is what info coming from HTCSoku unveils. As gforgames notes, this will be a SHARP screen, most probably IGZO.

The upcoming Butterfly S successor is also said to be powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, paired with 2GB of RAM, which should provide users with appealing performance capabilities. The smartphone should be launched with 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, most probably paired with a microSD memory card slot that will allow for additional storage space to be included. One of the most interesting tidbits related to this smartphone is the fact that it is said to arrive on shelves with a 5MP UltraPixel dual-camera on the back, the same as the All New HTC One. Should this pan out, we’re wondering whether this HTC GLU2 handset won’t be, in fact, a custom version of the upcoming HTC One successor, specifically designed for KDDI. One thing that is certain, however, is the fact that the mysterious device will also sport a 5MP front camera for video calling.

A 3000 mAh battery is also said to be included inside the upcoming mobile phone, along with Android 4.4.x KitKat. Of course, HTC will also load its own Sense 6 UI on top of Google’s mobile operating system. All in all, it seems that HTC has some powerful, highly appealing smartphones in store for its users for this year, though it remains to be seen how much of the above mentioned details on this Butterfly S successor will pan out. Info on the device’s release date and pricing hasn’t been provided as of now, and we don’t expect for such info to emerge soon. Most probably, the phone will become official after the All New HTC One is formally announced.
