HTC Butterfly S announced: 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU, UltraPixel camera and a 5-inch screen

HTC Butterfly S announced

As expect, HTC has officially announced the Butterfly S at its event in Taiwan. The new device is a successor to the original Butterfly, sporting the same-sized 5-inch full HD screen along with other high-end hardware like UltraPixel camera on the back, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, solid 3,200mAh battery and 16GB of built-in storage. Unlike the company’s flagship device, HTC One, the Butterfly S sports a microSD card slot and a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.9GHz.

HTC will start selling its new phone in July in Taiwan, asking NT$22,900 (about $766) for the unlocked, SIM-free device. Unfortunately, there’s no word when it will also be available in other parts of the world like Europe and the Americas. We do hope these regions will get this phone with Verizon perhaps announcing the Butterfly S as a Droid DNA2. We don’t have any such information, but we’ll make sure to get back to you as soon as we hear something new on this…

    Cool phone. Too bad it’s made out of plastic, rather than aluminum.

      HTC always make good to great quality phones. If you want a aluminium phone get the HTC One.
