HTC Butterfly to launch in India with an MRP of Rs 49,900
HTC is going launch the Butterfly in India in the next two-three weeks, which was unveiled in the US as the Droid DNA. AndroidOS reported that the device would hit India in two weeks at a price of Rs 44,000 but we have confirmed that the device will launch at an MRP of Rs 49,900, which will make it the highest priced Android smartphone in India. Of course, the street price would be much lower than the MRP and closer to what AndroidOS reported.
HTC is yet to receive shipments for the product and are expected to arrive in the next two-three weeks and that’s when the company will launch the product.
The device notably will also become the first device to enter the Indian market with a 1080p display. As far as the feature set is concerned the Butterfly will the deliver the best of the best.
It will have a 5-inch S-LCD 3 display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with a clock speed of 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a 8.1-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, a dedicated HTC Image Sense chip, Beats Audio with an built-in pre-amplifier, a 2,020 mAh battery and it will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a topping of HTC’s Sense UI.
Things are about to get interesting as Sony is also expected to launch the Xperia Z in a few months and specs wise the Butterfly compares very competitively in front of the Xperia Z.
