HTC is on a smartphone launch roll. In the past few months, we have seen the company announce and launch the HTC One, HTC Desire 600, HTC Desire 200 and today we see another top notch device being announced is the HTC Butterfly S, which is the successor to the original HTC Butterfly which was announced last year. The HTC Butterfly S actually arrives with a minor changes and enhancements over the company’s flagship smartphone, the HTC One.


To start with, the display of the HTC Butterfly S measures 5 inches diagonally and comes packed with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels which gives a crisp pixel density of 440 PPI. One nice change that we see in the HTC Butterfly S is that the device is powered Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor which clocks at 1.9 GHz and is complemented with about 2 GB of RAM. Internal memory on board the device is of about 16 GB which will be expandable using a microSD card slot up to 64 GB.

The HTC Butterfly S runs on Android OS though the version has not been specified but we are almost sure it is the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS with HTC Sense 5.0 on the top of it. The Smartphone arrives with the Ultrapixel camera which was first introduced on the HTC One and will cover the usual software offerings from the company like HTC Zoe and others. While the company has included the dual front facing HTC BoomSound speakers on the Butterfly S coupled with the usual Beats Audio branding to provide an excellent music listening experience to the users.

Connectivity wise, the HTC Butterfly S will go on to packs 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, NFC, 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB amongst others. The battery on the smartphone is of 3200 mAh capacity which makes it a great combo. The device has been unveiled in Taiwan which is the home ground for HTC and it has been priced at $766 in the country. We highly doubt if the S will be made available in other global markets anytime soon as that will make it a direct competitor to the already available HTC One.
