|The HTC Butterfly S comes in various colors as pictured above.|
But there are several major differences including size and weight. At 144.5 x 70.5 x 10.6mm and 160g, the Butterfly S is larger and heavier than the One, which measures 137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3mm and 143g. While the physical specs, at least on paper, may not appeal to people who want smaller and lighter phones, the increase in dimension translates to a larger, 5-inch Super LCD 3 1080p display (versus the One's 4.7-inch LCD).
Additionally, the Butterfly S is powered by a 3200 mAh battery - which means you'll spend less time charging your phone than you would with the HTC One's 2300 mAh battery. Although both models utilize the Snapdragon 600 processor, the Butterfly S has another edge at 1.9GHz versus the One's 1.7GHz.
Although, at 16GB, the Butterfly S offers less internal storage than the One's 32/64GB options, the new model has a microSD expansion slot that supports media up to 64GB. Having removable media gives users the option to swap out cards with another device or transfer images to a second device or computer via a card reader.
The HTC Butterfly S should be available in Taiwan this July. There is no word on international availability yet.
