After being announced nearly two weeks ago, it has been revealed that the ‘international’ model of HTC’s 1080p flagship device is not destined for European markets. Japanese and United States variants have already been announced and released in the form of the J Butterfly and Droid DNA.
Right now, the only market I am aware of where the HTC Butterfly will launch is Taiwan. Hopefully this should expand as more details are revealed in the coming weeks.
This latest news comes as retailer Expansys who had been taking pre-orders of the HTC Butterfly, issued this message to its customers;
“Thank you for your recent interest and preorder of the HTC Butterfly. Unfortunately, we have now been informed by HTC that this device will not be available in European markets, and as such we have had to remove it from our website and cancel your preorder.“
KitGuru says: It seems apparent that HTC has another flagship device in mind for the European market that will likely be revealed at CES or MWC.
