Following the critically-acclaimed HTC One, the Taiwan mobile maker has announced the HTC Butterfly S, the successor to the HTC Butterfly, launched last year. The 5-inch smartphone brings over many similar traits from the beautiful HTC One.

The HTC Butterfly S packs the same 4MP UltraPixel shooter with 1/3″ BSI sensor and wide f/2.0 aperture. Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Sense UI 5, the device will come with the familiar HTC Zoe, HTC Share and Video Highlights found on the HTC One.

The 5-inch Super LCD 3 display supports1080p resolution and has a pixel density of 440ppi. The device is powered by a 1.9Ghz Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB RAM, 16GB of storage with support of microSD (up to 64GB).

HTC has also included a massive 3200mAh battery, which should satisfy power-hungry folks (me included).

The HTC Butterfly S looks a lot like its predecessor in terms of looks and will be available in different colour variations of red, white and grey.

Because of the bigger battery though, the Butterfly S is 10.6mm in depth, thicker than its predecessor. At 160 grams it is still considerably light.

Connectivity-wise, the Butterfly S is packed with the usual offerings – WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, NFC and GPS.

I’m liking what I see and from the experience of the previous Butterfly S and the new HTC One, HTC looks to have another winner in its hands.
