First HTC Butterfly S Images Leak, Show Design And BoomSound Speakers
HTC is scaling its lauded One flagship down and up – we already saw the One mini, now thanks to some spy shots we’re getting a closer look at the HTC Butterfly S, an update on the company’s first 1080p phone with One hardware.
According to the source of the leak, the HTC Butterfly S still features a 5-inch 1080p screen, and the rear speaker has been deprecated by the new front-facers. It’s speculated that the internals have been upgraded too, and that the Butterfly S will be powered by a Snapdragon 600 chip. (We can see HTC’s latest Sense 5 UI on-screen.)
The biggest change we can see here, at least compared to the first Butterfly, is the move to give the handset a pair of front-facing speakers, like the BoomSound HTC first introduced on the HTC One. Another One trait – the two button arrangement has been replaced by standard three capacitive buttons.
The camera is expected to use the One’s UltraPixel technology too, but there’s nothing in the pictures to tell us if this is a sure thing.
We expect to hear the official word on the HTC Butterfly S from HTC on June 19, when the Taiwanese company is holding a special media event, so hold tight.
