HTC Butterfly S has landed


The whole world hasn’t gotten over the many wonderful blows that HTC One brought with its release (at least we at Speed HQ sure haven’t), and yet HTC comes firing away again with the launch of the HTC Butterfly S in Taiwan as we speak. The update to last year’s HTC Butterfly comes packing with the many features that made us fall in love with the HTC One–HTC BlinkFeed, HTC Zoe, and HTC BoomSound, and of course, HTC UltraPixel Camera. It will still run Android with HTC Sense. What isn’t clear yet is which version of the OS it will come with.

[/unordered_list] It looks like HTC is sticking to its smoking guns. And why not? They threw a fantastic mix of features in the HTC One that had us all reeling. Now that the HTC Butterfly S is here for those who prefer this aesthetic and a larger screen, and HTC One Mini rumors are just getting hotter, expect more of the BlinkFeed-Zoe-BoomSound triumvirate, plus the HTC UltraPixel Camera, from the manufacturing giant.
