HTC Butterfly S appears to be a perfect competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy S4 smartphone especially with its new “ultrapixel” camera set to rival Galaxy S4.
HTC has introduced a new member to its Butterfly family named Butterfly S in a press event this Wednesday at Yilan, Taipei. This sophisticated device seems to be an upgrade to the original HTC Butterfly and carries decent improvements over the current flagship smartphone – the HTC One. Starting from July this year, the customers in select Asia-Pacific countries willing to own a high-end device will have two options from HTC to make their choices i.e. the HTC One and the HTC Butterfly S.
With the arrival of the new flagship smartphone Butterfly S from the Taiwanese mobile manufacturer, the high-end Android smartphone market competitions is getting tougher. HTC Butterfly S appears to be a perfect competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy S4 smartphone especially with its new “ultrapixel” camera set to rival Galaxy S4. We have summarized a chart comparing both these devices on the specs front.
