Featuring a full HD 1080p 5-inch Super LCD 3 display, the Butterfly S packs in a 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, as well as 2GB of RAM. The phone also features HTC's 4-megapixel camera with Ultrapixel technology. A 2.1-megapixel camera is also present on the front of the device to aid in taking all those selfies.

The Butterfly S features a 3200 mAh battery, which HTC says will deliver 3.5 days of continuous music playback. The device runs Android Jelly Bean, but it is unclear if it is version 4.2.1 or 4.2.2 of the firmware.

The phone will hit Taiwan in July and there is no word yet on if it will be coming to the US, UK or Australia in the future.
