HTC Butterfly S to come with LTE support after all (Bonus: Press photo of the dual-SIM version)

HTC Butterfly S LTE Philippines

The recently-announced HTC Butterfly S was initially reported to not have an LTE support, which was disappointing considering that it packs quite a punch.

That turns out not to be true at all. Jason Mackenzie, President of Global Sales at HTC, has confirmed this to us. In some Asian (and perhaps European) markets like Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Singapore, the HTC Butterfly S will come with LTE with support for bands 1 (2100MHz), 3 (1800MHz), and 7 (2600MHz). Globe and Smart’s LTE networks operate on 1800MHz and 2100Mhz respectively.

Announced in June, the HTC Butterfly S sports a 5-inch 1080p Super LCD 3 screen, a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor (the HTC One has the same chip clocked at 1.7GHz), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with microSD support, the same UltraPixel camera, IR blaster, and a ginormous 3200mAh battery. It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with the HTC Sense 5.

With that in mind, I’m thinking that the HTC Butterfly easily beats most smartphones out there today in many aspects like battery. Now it’s time to pick one: the very stunning HTC One or the HTC Butterfly S with slightly better specs?

And, the bonus… Dual-SIM HTC Butterfly S for China. Looks like it’s set to be announced on July 18th. Perhaps along with the HTC One Mini?
