Now we're talking. Never mind the nondescript Desire P and Desire Q, a third upcoming HTC handset has just taken the rumour mill by storm today: a successor to the HTC Butterfly.
That would be the 5in 1080p smartphone that started the whole 5in 1080p smartphone frenzy last year, the phone otherwise known as the Droid DNA.
That's what it goes by in the US, with the Butterfly title having only been used in Asia. It's yet to appear under any name at all in the UK, though, so with HTC chief marketing officer Ben Ho having confirmed that a successor is indeed on the way, hopefully we'll see the net spread a bit wider this time around.
The Butterfly/Droid DNA emerged in the final months of 2012 and was an immediate hit. In fact, just like with the currently-pending HTC One, manufacturing issues saw HTC unable to meet pre-order demand (which maybe explains why it hasn't made it to the UK at all).
Ho insists those issues have now been resolved, but with the Butterfly 2 on its way, it's unlikely the original will grace these shores at all now.
Nothing yet on a release date or any specs, but it'll no doubt be an evolutionary step forward from the original Butterfly, which sounds good to us.

Of course, it also clashes with HTC's pronouncement earlier in the year that the HTC One would be the company's only flagship smartphone in 2013. So either HTC has changed its mind (you never know), or it simply meant the One will be the only flagship in that particular line released this year.
