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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
