HTC has finally unveiled the successor to its line of Butterfly smartphones, the aptly named Butterfly 2. Sporting high-end specs housed in colorful cases, the Butterfly 2 is poised to be a more lively alternative to HTC's flagship, but will unfortunately take flight only in Asia for now.
Over the past several years, HTC has released a high-end smartphone or smartphones in the United States as well as a slightly more awesome device overseas. The most recent example is the HTC J Butterfly, a smartphone that takes all of the high points in the HTC One (M8) and supercharges them. In this case, you also get full waterproofing and a set of bright colored back panels - bright red or blue from the start. Will this model ever come to the United States?
MacBook-to-tablet convertor Modbook is back with a new model, the Modbook Pro X, turning the latest MacBook Pro into a pen-enabled graphics powerhouse for designers and artists.

LG has unveiled the Isai FL for Japanese carrier KDDI, previewing the 5.5-inch QHD 2K display we're expecting to see in the upcoming LG G3. The new panel runs at 2560 x 1440 resolution for a pixel density of 538ppi, but LG claims the on-screen images should be more accurate not just more detailed, with 100-percent RGB color reproduction. In fact, LG suggests, you could watch a Blu-ray quality video with the same sort of detail as you'd get from a projector or vast TV.
