HTC has been trying to keep the news under wraps, but the rumours are true; HTC has just inaugurated its HTC Butterfly 2 Android smartphone for Singapore.</p> <p>The model was launched at a press event in Tokyo, and we were one of the first few to get our hands on the device.&nbsp;The&nbsp;Butterfly 2 is based on the Japan-only high-end HTC J Butterfly, with a few new features to go along with its new moniker.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/hafizahosman" title="View user profile.">Hafizah Osman</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> How about its insides? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Butterfly 2 weighs in at&nbsp;151g, and&nbsp;sports a 5in, 1080p full-HD display, a 13MP duo-camera back snapper with dual-sensor setup, a 5MP front-facing camera, Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB RAM and an option of 16GB or 32GB of internal memory (expandable to 128GB). It will run on Android 4.4 KitKat and have TDD-LTE connection capabilities.</p> <p>In addition, it&rsquo;s packed with HTC&#39;s standard added-value features, including the Sense 6 Android skin with BlinkFeed, Motion Launch and HTC BoomSound, amongst others. Oh, and this Butterfly can swim, too; it&#39;s IP57-certified for water and dust resistance (go ahead, we dare you to try dunking it in water).</p> <p>HTC has yet to declare local pricing and availability details, but we expect to see it over here by the end of next month. Stay tuned, we&rsquo;ll update the story as soon as we have more information.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:</strong> <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/android/htc-one-e8-has-almost-landed-singapore/news">The HTC One (E8) has almost landed in Singapore</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="638" height="425" title="The HTC Butterfly 2 will soon land in Singapore " alt="The HTC Butterfly 2 will soon land in Singapore " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/SAM_3118.JPG?1408548115" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="638" height="425" title="The HTC Butterfly 2 will soon land in Singapore " alt="The HTC Butterfly 2 will soon land in Singapore " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/SAM_3111.JPG?1408548115" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/water-proof-htc-butterfly-2-will-fly-singapore-very-soon/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/water-proof-htc-butterfly-2-will-fly-singapore-very-soon/news#comments Android HTC J Butterfly Smartphones Tue, 19 Aug 2014 05:57:53 +0000 Hafizah Osman 1445183 at http://www.stuff.tv Phunk Limited Edition HTC One (M8) puts bespoke art in your pocket http://www.stuff.tv/sg/htc/phunk-limited-edition-htc-one-m8-puts-bespoke-art-your-pocket/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Good luck getting hold of one though - a mere 64 have been made </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Phunk Limited Edition HTC One (M8)" alt="Phunk Limited Edition HTC One (M8)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/htc-onem8-phunk.jpg?1408074182" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>HTC has teamed up with Singapore art collective Phunk Studio to design a limited-edition version of the One (M8).</p> <p>The teams worked together to design the smartphone&rsquo;s revised exterior, with the primary theme of &ldquo;Wonderment&rdquo; driving the result.
