HTC Butterfly s revealed: 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, UltraPixel camera sensor (video)

HTC has just made the Butterfly S official and it’s a significant bump over the first Butterfly. The smartphone is powered by a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 – the same as the one in the Samsung Galaxy S4 – and has 2GB of RAM.

It’s built around the same 5″ display boasting full HD resolution and a pixel density of 440ppi. Internal storage is 16GB, and as is usually the case, HTC has teamed up with Dropbox to provide 25GB of free cloud storage for 2 years. MicroSD card support is available, too.

At the back of the Butterfly S, there’s the same UltraPixel camera as the HTC One. It packs a 1/3″ BSI sensor size with a 2.0 micron pixel size and wide F/2.0 aperture. Since the smartphone is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with the latest Sense UI 5 skin on top, there’s HTC Zoe with HTC Share and Video highlights.

Not much has changed in terms of visuals, and the Butterfly S looks more or less the same as its predecessor, safe for its thickness and different color variations – red, white, gray – and some details here and there. The most prominent of which is the metal ring surrounding the camera glass at the back.

Measuring 144.5 x 70.5 x 10.6mm, the Butterfly S weighs 160 grams and is significantly thicker than before. That’s because under the hood, there’s a 3200mAh battery, a lot bigger than the original Butterfly’s 2020mAh unit. Connectivity options are the usual for a high-end offering and include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, DLNA, NFC, GPS.

The HTC Butterfly S is expected to debut in Taiwan for NT $22,900 (US $766) in July. The company’s plans for a wider release at this point are still unclear.
