The HTC Butterfly S and HTC Desire 600 will be launched in an event on June 19th in Taiwan. HTC has partnered with Taiwan-based wireless carrier Chunghwa Telecom to organize the event. Already, invitations for such event have been sent out to members of the press. It is worth noting that the invitation clarifies that the name of one of the upcoming smartphones is Butterfly S, and not Butterfly 2, as was previously rumored.
HTC Desire 600
The HTC Desire 600 will not reveal any surprises, as it has already been announced by HTC some time ago. This smartphone is touted as the first mid-range HTC handset to offer HTC Sense 5. It comes with a 4.5-inch Super LCD2 display with qHD resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, an 8 MP camera on its rear, and 1.3 MP camera on its front. One finds under the hood a Snapdragon 200 1.2 GHz processor, 8 GB of internal storage, and 1 GB of RAM. The device is powered by a 1860mAh battery and has Android Jelly Bean as its operating system.
However. the highlights of the handset, it appears, are the features that it shares with the HTC One. The HTC Desire 600 comes with dual front-facing BoomSound speakers as well as Beats Audio integration, providing an immersive audio experience. Also onboard is Blinkfeed, which gives users access to news from more than a thousand sources right on the homescreen.
HTC Butterfly S
Unfortunately, the same amount of information is still unavailable for the HTC Butterfly S. To date, this successor to the HTC Butterfly or the HTC Droid DNA, remains mysterious.
That said, rumors suggest that the HTC Butterfly S will offer Android Jelly Bean, support for LTE connectivity, an UltraPixel rera camera, and possibly a screen similar to the one on the HTC Butterfly. Its processor, RAM, storage capacity, and battery, however, are still unknown. As the launch date nears, however, more information could arrive regarding the HTC Butterfly S.
