HTC Butterfly S Unveiled with 5-inch Display, UltraPixel Camera

HTC on Wednesday unveiled the Butterfly S, the follow-up to the HTC Butterfly which launched on Verizon Wireless as the DROID DNA. The new phone offers many features found in the company’s flagship One phone, including BoomSound front-facing speakers, a 4-UltraPixel camera, support for shooting Zoe clips, Beats Audio support and more.

It’s also equipped with a 5-inch 1080p display, a 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat and a large 3,200mAh battery. Love the HTC One but wish it had expandable storage? The Butterfly S could be right up your alley; it offers 16GB of onboard flash memory but also includes a microSD card slot for adding more storage. It also runs Android Jelly Bean and HTC’s Sense 5 skin.

Verizon Wireless has already confirmed that it will offer the HTC One, though we have a weird sneaking suspicion that it’s possible we’ll see the Butterfly S revealed as some sort of DROID DNA follow-up. For now, though, it’s only scheduled to launch in July in Taiwan.
