HTC announced the Butterfly S, successor of the Butterfly last month. Now the phone has appeared on the official HTC India website, which indicates that the launch could be expected soon. It packs a 5.0-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD Super LCD 3 display display with 440ppi with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, poweed by a 1.9 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with Adreno 320 GPU and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jellybean with HTC Sense 5.0.
It has a UltraPixel rear camera with LED Flash, BSI Sensor ,F2.0 aperture and 28 mm lens, Full HD (1080p) video recording with HDR Video similar to the HTC One and a 2.1-megapixel HD front-facing camera. It has HTC Zoe, HTC BoomSound and Dual frontal stereo speakers with built-in amplifiers.

The HTC Butterfly was announced for global markets in December 2012 and it was launched in India at the end of January 2013 at a price tag of Rs. 45,990. So we can expect the Butterfly S to launch here soon. The Butterfly S went on sale in Taiwan recently at a price of NT$ 22900 (~Rs. 45,500). We are not sure how much the device would cost here. Hope it is not priced over 50k.
