Taking design cues from the HTC 8XT which is a Windows Phone, the Butterfly 2 looks to disguise it's bottom speaker in the form of a black bar between the Android soft keys with a two-tone colour scheme. So far there looks to be black + white and black + black and black + blue. Other features include a possible IPX7 waterproof certification, but there doesn't seem to be any news on Malaysia release dates or pricing just yet. However, the HTC Butterfly 2 is expected to arrive in January 2014.

    Benchmarks Show HTC Butterfly S Faster than HTC One

    We've always felt that the HTC Butterfly and by extension the HTC Butterfly S never really got the attention and hype that they deserved. During the HTC Butterfly's time this was because HTC was pinning it's hopes of salvation on the HTC One but now that that time has passed the stigma seems to have overshadowed the HTC Butterfly S. Regardless, some people have gone and proven that the HTC Butterfly S for one is worthy of more than just a second glance as it manages to beat the flagship HTC One in performance benchmarks despite having the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor and chipset. This is probably because the HTC One is clocked at 1.7GHz while the HTC Butterfly S is clocked at 1.9GHz.
