HTC is updating its Butterfly smartphone with a new model that’s a lot like the company’s current flagship phone, the HTC One. But the HTC Butterfly S has a slightly larger screen and a much larger battery than the HTC One.
The new handset sports a 5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel Super LCD 3 display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. It has a microSD card slot, an HTC UltraPixel camera on the back, and a 2.1MP camera on the front. There are also stereo speakers facing the front of the device.
While the HTC One sports a 2300mAh battery, the company takes advantage of the larger case on this model to pack a 3200mAh battery.
The HTC Butterfly S supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 and works on UMTS/HSPA networks.
One thing it doesn’t have is support for 4G LTE. That’s not a big surprise, since it’s initially launching in Asia in July. Hopefully the phone will pick up LTE support if and when it makes it to the US.
