The HTC Butterfly, or Verizon Droid DNA was always a device that we loved, but wished we could love more. Some say that it’s due to how close it was launched to the HTC One, and others really didn’t enjoy how it performed while being tested. Whatever the case may be, it was clear that the Butterfly always had a steep road to compete even against, and we’ve all been waiting for a better version to be launched and deal with it’s shortcomings.
As it turns out, the company has just taken the wraps off the HTC Butterfly s, which is clearly the successor to the HTC Butterfly or Verizon Droid DNA. It retains the same 5-inch 1080p display that we already know, but the company adds a new 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage that is expandable via microSD, and a new Ultrapixel camera. It’s updated design even includes support for BoomSound stereo speakers as well.
All this said, it’s hard to know if the Butterfly s will ever reach our shores now that the HTC One is already in the market. It does show some minor improvements, but not significant enough to have another HTC One competitor arrive from the same parent company. We’ll see how this turns out.
