HTC's new series of smartphones for the second half of the year has just landed! As rumored, HTC took the wraps off a global variant of the J Butterfly and updated the One M9+.

The updated One M9+ model is officially known as the One M9+ Aurora Edition and much of the changes revolved around the camera hardware. While the One M9+ comes with a 20MP Duo Camera, the latest model has a 21MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, optical image stabilization (a first for HTC phones) and laser autofocus.

Other specs include a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, a MediaTek Helio X10 octa-core 2.2GHz processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage space with microSD expansion, an UltraPixel front-facing camera and a 2,840mAh battery.

Both the Butterfly 3 and One M9+ Aurora Edition will be available in Taiwan next month. HTC should have plans to roll out to more markets soon.
