The Butterfly 2 has a plastic build and is sporting its very own distinct design.

The device is equipped with 2 GB of RAM that is mated with 16 GB worth of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128 GB. The headset features LTE connectivity and an IR sensor.
In addition, the Butterfly 2 sports a 13 megapixel rear Duo camera which features a f/2.0 rear sensor with the secondary depth sensor instead of the UltraPixel sensor found on the One M8. The device also packs a larger 2700 mAh battery compared to the One M8.
The Butterfly 2 is IP57 certified dust and water resistant. It has a flap-free water-resistant design that essentially indicates that the microUSB port and 3.5mm audio jack are not covered while the SIM and microSD card tray are integrated as covers.
