A successor to HTC J Butterfly (HTL23) could be on its way.

This powerful smartphone combines Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 SoC with a QHD display and offers high-resolution cameras. Unfortunately, it will most likely appear only in Asia.

While Samsung crammed all the best components it had available into a single flagship smartphone, HTC instead chose to separate them: the One M9 got a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC but kept its predecessor's Full HD display, while the One M9+ ended up with a QHD display but uses a Mediatek MT6795T chip. However, according to the database of the popular CompuBench benchmark, there is still one more high-end HTC smartphone in the works. It is allegedly called J Butterfly HTV31 (Butterfly 3) and will be based on the Snapdragon 810 chip with its Adreno 430 GPU and will use a 5.1-inch QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels, 576 ppi) display.

In addition to these components, the Butterfly 3 will also feature 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and NFC. The rear camera will take 20 MP photos and supports 4K video recording. The front camera does too, but its pictures are limited to "just" 13 MP. Naturally, an up-to-date Android version (5.0.2) will be pre-installed.

It is rumored that HTC will first bring the Butterfly 3 to Japan in May and shortly after to some other Asian markets. This corresponds to the previous Butterfly smartphone's (J Butterfly HTL23 / Butterfly 2) availability, so a global release seems unlikely.
