Customers who want a handset with a fingerprint scanner but consider the iPhone 5S to be too small may soon see their wishes coming true as the HTC One Max will be larger than Apple's flagship. On the other hand it seems the HTC One Max will not be HTC's flagship device for too long, because the HTC Butterfly 2 is set to take the crown in just a few months.   

While nothing is official at this time, the rumors mention quite a few technical specs of the upcoming handset:

  • Snapdragon 800 processor, the same as in flagship devices like the LG G2 or Sony's Xperia Z1
  • Full HD 5.2-inch touchscreen display for a complete multimedia experience
  • Waterproof case like the Sony Xperia Z1

The name is not official yet and it may not be HTC Butterfly 2, since this would be the third smartphone in the Butterfly series after the first model and the Butterfly S. According to ePrice, the handset will be officially unveiled in January during CES 2014 or at a separate HTC event.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
