HTC just unveiled two new smartphones that will launch in Asia this summer. The new smartphones debuted include the Butterfly S and the Desire 600.
HTC Butterfly S Specs:
The Butterfly S smartphone measures 5 inches and features a quad-core, Android Jelly Bean operating system, 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600, impressive 3,2o0 mAh high-capacity battery, HD 1080p screen, 16GB of storage, microSD card slot, 2GB of RAM, and quad-band HSPA/WCDMA radio.
The Butterfly S smartphone will be available in Taiwan. It will come in a choice of grey, red or white. The phone also features UltraPixel camera, Zoe software, 2.1 megapixel wide-angle camera, HTC BlinkFeed, Boom Sound, and Sense TV.
The Desire 600 features Snapdragon 200 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, and 4.5 inch super LCD2 screen. Jack Tong, general manager for HTC in North Asia explained, “consumers [can] choose products that meet their needs”.
Just a few days ago, HTC introduced the Desire 200, a budget phone with 3.5 inch display, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 4GB of memory.
According to Ryan Whitwam from Android Police, “It’s an impressive device, especially that battery. It’s almost as massive as the Droid Razr Maxx HD in that department. Bringing the BoomSound speakers to more devices is also a great move for HTC. The exact version of Android running under Sense 5 is not immediately apparent, but the Butterfly S will have software features like BlinkFeed, Zoe and Beats Audio. The Butterfly S is an Asian device set to launch in July, which explains the apparent lack of LTE. The original Butterfly was essentially a Droid DNA, so maybe we’ll see the new version come to American shores sometime soon. “
The new HTC phones, most particularly the new Butterfly S Phablet, should help give Android a new step ahead at least in Asia. There is no word on when or if these new phones will make it to the United States.
