HTC Butterfly S The 5inch version of the One youve been waiting

first_imgWhile the HTC One has proven itself to be a popular phone, there are still plenty of users out there interested in even larger devices. HTC has updated their 5-inch smartphone with the visual styling of the One to create the Butterfly S.The HTC Butterfly, more commonly known as the Droid DNA in the US, was the first HTC phone that had really been impressive for a little while. The beautiful 5-inch screen and a version of HTC Sense that was significantly better than the previous iterations made the phone fun to use, and if you could get your hands on one it was a great experience. Unfortunately the phone wasn’t widely available, and now that the HTC One is here it’s a easy choice to make. Still, there’s still a significant number of users who want a phone sporting the largest screen they can get their hands on, so HTC is bringing the Butterfly back with some tricks they picked up in building the One.The Butterfly S is looks like exactly what HTC needs to compete with the LG Optimus G Pro and the Samsung Galaxy Note line of phones. Taking the BoomSound speakers, the Ultrapixel camera, and the latest version of Sense from the HTC One, this new Butterfly is pretty much exactly what existing DNA owners wish their phone was packing. The 5-inch 1080p SLCD 3 display will be powered by a 3200mAh battery and most likely a Snapdragon 600 processor. There’s no mention of some of the other Butterfly features, like the inductive charging that was lost with the HTC One, but the MicroSD card slot will be a great addition to those who crave additional storage. The Butterfly S looks like it has a glossy glass and plastic exterior as opposed to the matte rubber or aluminum finish to the previous HTC phones, but that could just be the excessive shine used in the video rendering.As the Butterfly only existed in the US as the Verizon Wireless Droid DNA, it is entirely possible that the Butterfly S is on its way to being the next Droid phone. There’s no mention of release dates or pricing for this phone yet, but HTC’s deliberate announcement of this phone just hours before Samsung’s presentation at Earl’s Court in the UK shows exactly who the Taiwanese company is competing with right now.last_img read more
