HTC Butterfly S snapped ahead of June 19 launch event

HTC Butterfly S snapped ahead of June 19 launch eventLooking back, I managed to mention no less than nine different phones in my article about the HTC Butterfly S earlier in the week. I’ll try to keep things simple here, promise! (EDIT: major fail)

In a nutshell, the HTC Butterfly S has been pictured posing ahead of its planned June 19 launch.

Right, so, the HTC J Butterfly was the Taiwanese manufacturer’s first 1080p smartphone, launching in Japan, and released in other Asian territories as the HTC Butterfly.

In the US, they got the Droid DNA and the HTC One, while the UK only saw the latter. Still with me?

More recently, Japan was treated to a flagship variant called the HTC J One, while other Asian territories will get the HTC Butterfly S. Essentially it’ll steal a bunch of features from the west’s HTC One.

The HTC Butterfly S is expected to launch on June 19 alongside the HTC Desire 600, and that’s the phone we’re looking at here, courtesy of Chinese-language site VR-Zone.

Expected HTC Butterfly S specs include a 5in 1080p display, front stereo BoomSound speakers, and HTC One software features including BlinkFeed and Zoe.

If the above isn’t confusing enough, maybe you’d like to hear about the HTC Butterfly 2, expected in Q4? No?

Is the HTC butterfly S not the htc butterfly 2? Or is there definitely information to support the rumour that there will be a separate HTC butterfly 2 out in Q4?

Focus Taiwan says: "To capitalize on its success in the large-screen phone market, HTC said it plans to launch the refreshed Butterfly S in Taiwan June 19, while the market anticipates another upgraded model, to be called Butterfly 2, to be available in the fourth quarter."
