HTC Butterfly S coming mid June; HTC M4 and new HTC One colors to arrive mid July
According to industry sources, the follow up to the HTC Butterfly, the HTC Butterfly S, will see the light of day by the middle of this month. Similar to the Verizon exclusive HTC DROID DNA, the HTC Butterfly has a 5 inch 1080 x 1920 FHD screen offering a 441ppi pixel density. Those insiders say that the HTC Butterfly S will not be the same model as the HTC Butterfly 2 although both are expected to add certain features belonging to the HTC One such as BlinkFeed, an UltraPixel camera sensor, a microSD slot and a larger battery. It will also have an extra gray color option.

HTC Butterfly

Expected to launch in the middle of next month is the HTC M4. This is a codename, just as the HTC One was the M7. The M4 has the same design as the HTC One but with downgraded specs such as a 4.3 inch display. It will also be equipped with a dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, stereo speakers, Sense 5.0 and Android 4.2 installed.

The other day, we showed you a version of the HTC One in blue. This model is expected to be available in the middle of next month in Taiwan. At the same time, China will also get the sad HTC One (it's blue, you know) and the red variant at the same time

Not a bad assortment for a company that is allegedly in free fall.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

They should be preparing intel devices or they are going to die.

A prototype silvermont cpu I was able to use scored 62500 (the version was quad core 2ghz, they go up to 2.5ghz at best, power savers have undercloking features and are dual core + hyperthreading) in antutu while getting the same battery life as an a15 cpu. Trust me do not buy arm they are about to get destroyed by intel.

There are a few manufacturers already on board with intel, one of them is Samsung another is Acer (only tablets for now), and last but not least Sony has been thinking about releasing some intel devices under the Vaio brand.

I never thought I would meet an intel fanboy.....

My Snapdragon S3 on my GS2 runs as smooth as butter on everything (MC4 to UI) ...

My point: ARM chips aren't that slow.

Release 4-5 1080p smartphones at once and people won't buy even one!

I'm a fan of HTC,but the company releasing too many high end smartphones at a time is a wrong strategy

Over 6 millions HTC One are sold until today and you are saying that the company failed?!

how about 13 megapixel, with ultrapixel technology???

Close to impossible, unless HTC makes the phone thick. To make 13MP with each individual pixels bigger, you need a sensor almost equivalent to 808 PureView in size.

Why does smaller screen HAVE to mean smaller specs?

I know there is demand for top of the line specs in a Razr M sized phone!

If rumors about the M4 are true, this will be on the upper end of midrange: 720 screen, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB storage. They couldn't make it too similar without cannibalizing One sales.

Well, I don't care if its processor is dual core ore quadcore. If they include boomsound, the ultrapixel camera, 2 GB RAM and a 720 p screen at that size, it's going to be the closest to a palm friendly high end android phone ever. If it even has the alumium body, this thing will be great. I would really consider that phone, even though I have a One... But you're right, the specs are "smaller".

I'm confused, where does the T6 fit into all this?

maybe the T6 is the butterfly 2?

Hopefully the M4 won't come too late. If the S4 mini is the first to hit the stores...
