Inside, running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with the latest Sense UI 5 skin on top, butterfly S is equipped with a quad-core 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 alongside 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage that is expandable through a microSD card slot.
The smartphone follows HTC One’s bequest of a 4-megapixel UltraPixel camera “the Zoe camera” software feature along with 2.1-megapixel front facing camera with an 88 degree wide-angle lens.
Connectivity options include quadband WCDMA and GSM / EDGE, along with WiFi a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0 and aptX. There’s NFC, GPS, and GLONASS too with infrared remote control.
