HTC Butterfly S official: Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB RAM, 3200mAh battery

HTC Butterfly S official: Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB RAM, 3200mAh batteryWe’ve been scribbling a fair bit about the HTC Butterfly S of late, and expected the phone to launch in Taiwan on June 19. Yep, that’s today, and the HTC Butterfly S is here!

Looking at the official HTC Butterfly S spec sheet, the rumour mill was pretty much spot on, and there’s a bonus surprise in the form of a colossal battery. Nice.

The HTC Butterfly S is essentially a variant of Asia’s HTC Butterfly, with a bunch of features nicked from the west’s HTC One.

Specifically, the HTC Butterfly S has front stereo speakers (HTC BoomSound), and Sense 5 encompassing BlinkFeed (automatically pulls “relevant” content onto the homescreen) and Zoe (camera stuff).

Other HTC Butterfly S specs include – as expected – a 5in 1080p display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.9GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage (with microSD) and a rear UltraPixel camera.

The surprise HTC Butterfly S feature is a monstrous 3,200mAh battery. To give that figure some context, the HTC One has a 2,300mAh battery, while the Samsung Galaxy S4 weighs in at 2,600mAh.

In this YouTube-based HTC Butterfly S first look, HTC says you can get 3.5 days of audio playback on one charge.

The HTC Butterfly S arrives in Taiwan next month, but don’t get your hopes up for a western release, as much as we’d love to see one.

OK HTC, you've really got my attention now.
Might get my Pal who lives in HK to take a look next time he visits Taiwan on business.....

Do these specs put it ahead of the HTC one?

Slightly larger screen 5" instead of 4.7", slightly faster processor (1.9Ghz instead of 1.7) , MUCH larger battery but importantly, sd card capability.
No 4g by the looks of it though

Oh and it's only got 16Gb out of the box

The specs looked great until the no 4g part, it's strange that they would leave that out. But I guess it's a moot point since the phone won't arrive on UK shores.
