The specifications of the HTC One M9 come across as underwhelming for some consumers. While the aluminum design is beautiful, the display and camera just miss the mark compared to its competition. The upcoming Butterfly 3 could be worth a look many consumers (in the event it leaves Asia). On CompuBench, specifications for an HTC device that is allegedly the Butterfly 3 surfaced.
