The Droid DNA, internationally known as the HTC Butterfly, was quite a hit back in the day. Popular with both users and experts, the phone served as a boost and helped the Taiwanese manufacturer gain its footing again after a year of poor sales results. It is understandable that the company has a soft spot for the device and wants to keep it on sale as long as possible. As a natural course of things, the HTC Butterfly is getting outdated. That it why HTC decided to launch its updated version, known as the HTC Butterfly S. The phone was officially unveiled today at an event in Taiwan.

Unsurprisingly, the HTC Butterfly S retains some of the specs of the original Butterfly, but it also brings to the table a handful set of features found in the HTC One. The phone comes with the same 5-inch Full HD LCD3 display at 440 ppi that you are familiar with.
Inside the handset’s 5.69 x 2.78 x 0.42 inch (144.5 x 70.5 x 10.6 mm) body is a 1.9 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor is ticking along with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of expandable storage.
The Butterfly S is equipped with a 4-megapixel UltraPixel camera on the back playing nicely with HTC Zoe. On the front there is a 2.1-megapixel snapper with 88-degree wide-angle lens.
The phone has a hefty 3,200 mAh battery, with a capacity almost 40% higher than the unit in HTC’s current flagship smartphone. The Butterfly S also features BoomSound dual speakers and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box.
The HTC Butterfly S is scheduled to hit the stores in Taiwan in July at a price of NT $22,900 which is an equivalent of $765.
