The HTC Butterfly S name first popped up around the beginning of the month, and it sounds like it’ll become official before the end of next week.
Specifically, HTC has sent out invites for a June 19 press event based in Taiwan, where it’s expected to reveal the HTC Butterfly S and HTC Desire 600.
If you think there’s any logic at work in HTC’s naming convention, you can think again, brother.
The HTC One S was technically farther down the ladder than the HTC One and of course the HTC One X.
The HTC Butterfly S, on the other hand, is thought to be a slightly enhanced version of the existing HTC Butterfly – it being the general Asian version of the Japan-specific HTC J butterfly (pictured). Confused? Me too.
Having said all that, the HTC Desire S and Wildfire S were enhanced versions of their respective predecessors. Hmm.
Naming stuff aside, the HTC Butterfly S can’t be that much better than the HTC Butterfly, since the latter has a 1080p 5in display and quad-core processor already.
What we should expect, according to the rumours, are various features nabbed from the western flagship HTC One, including software stuff like BlinkFeed and Zoe, alongside a possible UltraPixel camera.
As for the HTC Desire 600, it’s the highest-specced Desire phone we’ve seen to date; a far cry from the budget nonsense we’ve seen in the UK of late. Click the blueness for more info.
