Picture of HTC Butterfly S with dual SIM slots leaks
A tweet sent out on Saturday shows a photograph of what is alleged to be the HTC Butterfly S with dual SIM slots. This model is going to be available only in China and keeps the same 5 inch Super LCD 3 screen with 1080 x 1920 resolution found on the original model. Other specs remain the same as seen with the OG HTC Butterfly/DROID DNA such as the outstanding 441ppi pixel density. The camera on back is the same 4 UltraPixel snapper seen on the HTC One while a 2MP front-facing camera is aboard. A quad-core 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 drives the handset.

A dual SIM phone allows the user to run two lines through one device. You could have one business line and one line for play. The HTC Butterfly S would be a sequel to the HTC DROID DNA at Verizon and might not come to the U.S. for some time, if it comes at all. After all, the HTC One, which is the Taiwan manufacturer's flagship Android model, is expected to come to Verizon on August 1st. And if there is a sequel to the HTC DROID DNA, it won't be the dual SIM model which is a feature that has not really been popular in the states.

The speaker on the front killed the design completely. I have a feeling HTC is running out of design ideas if this is the best they got for their "newest flagship."

How do they have speakers without grills? Any better ideas?

Leave it to HTC to create yet again, another elegant design while providing function. This will be a great sequel to the Droid Dna, same great form factor, except just a little thicker from the 3200 mAh battery and same killer screen, can't really get much better...pretty sure they know what they're doing.

Is the phone glossy? Not so enthused about the design... Anyways, I see why they say the One still is the flagship...lol

yes, it's very glossy, a real fingerprint magnet. the original version comes in red, black, grey, and black and all of them have the high gloss.

the key to success is looking at what you did wrong in the past and LEARNING FROM YOUR MISTAKES!!

Now everyone here knows i ride with sony and htc......but im slowly but surley LOOSING HOPE in them.....yes loosing hope in the ignorance that these "good" companies keep displaying!

if they want to over throw samsung and apple, then they MUST bring the heat! they must improve on EVERY little aspect that they failed to deliver in their previous devices........point blank

the 4mp camera is still getting beat by samsungs galaxy s4, their marketing campaign can alwways be better and their TIMING with releases and updates NEEDS TO STEP IT UP!

The 4MP camera on the HTC One is really disappointing. The only pro I could find is low light photography. Everything else is left to be desired, especially after all the hype the camera gets.

HTC designed one good looking phone and now their already back to their old ways. They will never learn.

Uhm, I think the trade-off is fairly justified. I see nothing wrong with it

Storage xpandability + higher mAh + faster cpu over aesthetics

Why would they make another HTC ONE with a souped-up specs? that'd betray their customers

They already do by not updating phones that are a year old.

The chinese version of the HTC One does have dual sim and an sd slot.

i actually really like the way the phone looks, tho for some reason this china version looks thicker than the original butterfly s. i hope it gets released in the us.

I have the first one and I really want this one. But please, stop it with the red accents. I don't like red accents and don't need them on my phone. jesus

You know this phone will never come to the US or even most of Europe. This is a phone for China

Why even report on a phone coming "exclusive to China?"

Import it and use it in the US and not all chinese phones are bad.

The Xiaomi mi3 is better than the htc one and s4.

I love my HTC Butterfly S!The front facing speakers is superb!Maybe one of the reasons why I scour the internet just to have one! :D I also love that I could always update the software now, credits to merimobiles.com where I bought my unit.I don't think it's bad as it looks. ;)
