The HTC Butterfly 3 and One M9+ Supreme Camera edition have been launched by the company at an event in Japan. Both will be available in Taiwan for $600 (approx Rs 40000) and $630 (roughly Rs 41000), respectively.
The HTC Butterfly 3 is essentially the same J Butterfly that was launched in Japan back in May 2015. The specs between the two are pretty much identical. Same goes for the One M9+ Supreme Camera edition, which is only differentiated from its predecessor in the photography department.
The Butterfly 3 flaunts a 5.2-inch IPS LCD QHD (1440 x 2560p) display and runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. It’s fueled by an octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, with four cores clocked at 2GHz and four at 1.5GHz. It contains a 2700mAh battery, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM, expandable up to 2TB.
HTC has equipped the device with an IP57 rating, which means it’s dust-tight and water resistant. The handset houses a dual-camera setup on its rear surface, consisting of a 20.2MP main snapper and a secondary sensor to capture distance information. There’s also a 13MP shooter with BSI lens on-board for selfies.
Moving on to the M9+ Supreme Camera edition, the company has improved the imaging abilities of the smartphone to a 21MP rear lens; up from the previous variant’s 20MP one. The secondary camera on the back now acts as a laser autofocus system. This combined with phase detection AF enables users to capture photos within 0.1 seconds.
The HTC phone has been blessed with BoomSound stereo speakers and a fingerprint scanner. It still sports a 5.2-inch QHD screen and a 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6795T Helio X10 CPU, coupled with 3GB of RAM. The device carries a 2840mAh battery and 32GB of internal storage, expandable till 128GB.
The global availability and price details of the HTC Butterfly 3 and One M9+ Supreme Camera edition have not been revealed yet. We’ll keep you posted if there are any plans to launch them worldwide.
