With the upcoming launch of the HTC One, all eyes are currently on the Taiwan based company. The HTC One aside, HTC has launched a number of the most popular and highly regarded Android smartphone models to hit the market in recent years, despite being heavily outperformed by manufacturers like Samsung and Apple.
One of the most popular high end Android models from HTC in recent months is the HTC Butterfly. Unfortunately, this phone never hit the shelves in Europe but proved to be a massive success in Japan, Taiwan and the US where it went by the name of the HTC Droid DNA. The phone quickly clocked up higher sales than expected in a number of markets, on account of its 5 inch with 1080p high definition display (the first smartphone with this feature), 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 8 megapixel camera and Android Jellybean operating system.

Unfortunately for HTC, the success of the HTC Butterfly led to shortages of stock in several markets. As a result, many consumers were unable to get their hands on the phone, prompting them to choose a different model. In order to ensure that the handset remains appealing, Android Authority reports that HTC will be launching a second generation HTC Butterfly at some point. This was confirmed by Ben Ho, the Chief Marketing Officer at HTC, although he did not reveal information regarding its launch date or spec list.
Given the likely success of the HTC One though, it would not be much of a surprise if the handset borrowed some of the features from the company’s upcoming flagship model, which is set to be one of the most popular phones of the year.
