HTC Unveils 5-Inch Butterfly S Phablet

Taiwanese manufacturer HTChas globally unveiled its Butterfly S smartphone, which features technologies that were showcased earlier in its flagship handset HTC One. An upgrade to last year's top-end smartphone Butterfly, the new device has a faster processor, improved camera and offers 25GB of freeDropbox storage. The company has launched the handset only in Taiwan right now and has not revealed its global rollout plans.

The all-new Butterfly S has a 5-inch screen with1920x1080p resolution and 441ppi pixel density. The phone runs on the 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 processor (that powers the Samsung Galaxy S4) and comes with 2GB RAM. This device packs 16GB onboard storage and supports expansion up to 64GB via microSD cards.

HTC has included its UltraPixel technology in the 4MP rear camera of Butterfly S; the front camera of this handset has resolution of 2.1MP and a LED flash is placed on the back. Connectivity options in the phone include 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0 and NFC, front-facing BoomSound stereo speakers. The phone runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), topped with the manufacturer's proprietary Sense user interface.

HTC Butterfly S will compete against the new crop of phones with full HD screens, including Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G Pro and its sibling HTCOne. Other rivals are Apple iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 925 and BlackBerry Z10. Its predecessor, Butterfly, remains the most expensive Android phone in India at Rs 45,500.

The UltraPixel sensor is engineered with larger pixels, and it is touted to enable each pixel to capture more than 300 per cent more light than most leading 13 megapixel cameras. This is because the larger each pixel on the image sensor is, the more light it receives, and hence the image data becomes better.
