Industry sources reveal that HTC will launch the successor to its first 1080p smartphone (the HTC Droid DNA a.k.a. Butterfly) in mid-July. The same source reveals that the mid-range HTC M4 will arrive in middle of July.
New reports indicate that HTC will launch the follow-up to its potential-packed (yet not that popular) Butterfly with the upcoming Butterfly S. The new Butterfly S is expected to pack the same 5-inch 1080p SuperLCD3 display with the main differentiators being HTC BlinkFeed (a software feature) and the new UltraPixel camera (a hardware feature). A microSD card slot (a huge problem with the Droid DNA) and a larger battery are also in tow. It’s good to see that HTC is listening to its customers and fixing the issues that held back their previous phone. The report doesn’t mention anything about BoomSound (we’re guessing it’s not going to be present). HTC will reportedly launch the Butterfly S sometime mid-June (just 2 weeks away).
Mid-July, HTC is expected to launch their mid-range smartphone codenamed M4 (the HTC One is codenamed M7). The M4 will reportedly pack the same design as the flagship One, but will be downsized to a 4.3-inch HD display and a dual-core processor. Otherwise, the M4 will be equally impressive as the One, with 2 GB of RAM, stereo speakers with HTC BoomSound, Sense 5.0, BlinkFeed and Android 4.2 pre-installed.
The publication also mentions that the flagship HTC One will release in new colors, most probably the blue paint job which leaked a couple of days ago. China will reportedly get the long announced red color edition. HTC is ready to make our summer exciting with two new phones and new models of existing phones, all coming in the next month and half.
