HTC Butterfly S with 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, UltraPixel camera introduced

HTC Butterfly S

HTC just introduced the successor to the Butterfly at an event in Taiwan. Called the Butterfly S, the handset looks very similar to the model it replaces. However, the phone has now been equipped with the same front facing BoomSound speakers as seen on the HTC One. The operating system too gets the HTC’s spanking new Sense 5 UI layer that we quite liked when we reviewed the One.

Internally, the phone is now powered by a 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600. This processor has been clocked higher than the one on the HTC One and should result in some interesting benchmarks. There’s 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage that can be expanded via a microSD slot. The battery unit is rated 3,200 mAh. The camera module is the same as the one on the HTC One and comes with Zoe software based features. The front snapper is a 2.1 MP wide angle module.
