Render of HTC B2 Leaked Online, Supposed J Butterfly Successor

Thanks to @evelaks, the world is getting its first look at the HTC B2, likely to be a J Butterfly successor device. In late 2012, HTC unveiled the J Butterfly, a device which never made its way to the US, but was chalk full of great specs for its time.

In the end, the device was rebranded for America as the DROID DNA, then was made available on Verizon’s network. The B2 may share the same fate, but no details are yet known. 

@evleaks was unable to provide any specifications or release information for the device, but around this time of year, the leaks flow heavily. Another HTC leak artist tweeted out that the B2 would feature the same specs as the One (M8) – meaning 1080p display, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and UltraPixel sensor, but would only launch in Taiwan and Japan.

Theoretically, if a DROID DNA 2 was launched on Verizon, who here would be interested?

    Love my DNA, and would love a DNA 2, but I’ll wait until I hear more about this M8 Prime.

    its not as attractive as others phone of htc.

  • tylerc23

    I just got the M8 but I did love the DNA. Very minimal bezel going on for it’s time

  • tylerc23

    Hope you like Bezel’s

    Sd slot

    Hope it’s 5.5 this time, and that it has a ad card slot!

  • joejoe5709

    Aaaaaand they still can’t get the bezels right.

  • paul_cus

    Looks like a bigger HTC First.

  • Cesar

    I like the design better than the M8. The M8 is a beautifully crafted device, but simple designs tend to win me over every time.

  • Jared Denman

    Maybe its flounder?! Lol

  • I’d buy it.

  • Iskandar

    I like the design…

  • nicotinic

    Yeah, I’d want it if it had at least a 8MP camera like my current DNA.

    • moew

      You’ll get a 4MP camera and you’ll like it!

  • Open1Your1Eyes0

    Won’t be Droid branded. Remember Verizon said Motorola is now exclusive to the Droid series?


  • BoFiS

    if it was SMALLER than the M8 I’d be interested….

  • Mark Schleupner

    Only if it had an SD card slot.

  • DJyoSNOW

    Still have my trusty DNA… (& want to sell it)

    • DNA is the last good HTC camera.

      • Allen Yates

        It’s just okay. The dynamic range is pretty poor. Also very noisy in low light.

        • nicotinic

          Like he said, “last good “HTC” camera”, in terms of image resolution/quality as compared to the 4MP shooter on the HTC M7 and now the M8.

  • Tony Byatt


    Looks like a combination of a HTC One and a Red Nexus 5…

  • Charlie R.

    There CAN’T be a Droid DNA 2 because Motorola is now the only manufacturer that will release Droid phones for Verizon.

    You guys reported this late last year.

    • Cael

      Key Word: Theoretically

    • moew

      The Droid DNA was the Butterfly, the successor was the Butterfly S, simple.

    • flosserelli

      The leak says nothing about “Droid DNA 2”. DL came up with that name because it resembles the Droid DNA. But there is nothing stopping HTC from releasing this phone on Verizon or other carriers simply because Motorola has exclusive rights to the “Droid” name. Obviously HTC would name it something else.

    • BustNHeadsDaily

      With Lenovo acquiring Motorola Mobility the contract they had with Verizon is probably null and void.

  • Bob

    chock full…

    • JMonkeYJ

      Heh, I’m trying to imagine what “chalk full” would mean…

  • Takashita

    The J Butterfly already had a successor. It’s called the HTC Butterfly S

    • Guest


    • Yep

    • callumshell1

      It’s a damn nice phone too. I would have much poreferred it over the One.

    • John

      The Droid DNA was the Butterfly, the successor was the Butterfly S, simple.

  • HTC Definitely makes the best looking devices out of any other manufacturer

  • Cael

    I’d be more interested if it looked more like the Butterfly S.

  • David Dudovitz

    I would love such a thing because I much prefer the DNA’s design over the M8 I just got, but I also prefer updates and I’m never getting a carrier phone again.
