HTC has just announced the Butterfly 3 smartphone to succeed last year's flagship in polycarbonate attire, the Butterfly 2. And before you asked - yes, it is essentially the same phone as the J Butterfly which has been official in Japan since May.

So the recent HTC Butterfly 3 comes with a 5.2-inch QHD Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) display, Snapdragon 810 chipset, and 3GB of RAM. Internal storage is quoted at 32GB and could be expanded by up to 2Tera Bytes (TB) via microSD - theoretically, that is, as we're yet to see a card beyond 200GB.

It's all about imaging with this one, rocking a 20.2MP primary capturing camera on the back, with a secondary sensor to capture distance information. This results in what HTC calls a Duo setup, allowing for post-shot autofocusing and a few other creative effects. The lens is a Sapphire crystal-protected f/2.2 27.8mm-equivalent, and has a dual-tone dual-LED flash to assist in the dark. Naturally, it supports 4K video recording.

On the front you'll find a 13MP selfie shooter, again with a BSI sensor. The lens has a faster f/2.0 aperture, though it's a smidge narrower 28.2mm equivalent. The front cam can shoot videos up to 1080p.

The smartphone measures 150.99 x 72.99 x 9.99mm, according to HTC's specsheet, but we'd go ahead and drop those 9s for a much neater 151 x 73 x 10mm. It weighs 161g, while packing a 2,700mAh battery, but most importantly carries an IP57 rating for dust and water protection.

The HTC Butterfly 3 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense 7 on top. It will be launched in Taiwan on October 20, priced at TWD 19,900, or roughly $600. Global availability and pricing is yet to be revealed.
