If you were to wave a magic wand over the HTC One and magically give it a bigger screen, faster processor, and a longer lasting battery, you'd end up with the Butterfly S, HTC's latest high-end handset. Oh, and then you'd have to banish it Taiwan, where it would be start selling July for NT$22,900 (~$769 USD). A magic wand isn't needed -- the HTC Butterfly S exists, though it's unclear if this spec-heavy smartphone will have make the journey to the U.S. market.

We hope it does. The Butterfly S takes flight with a 5-inch Full HD 1080 Super LCD 3 display (440 pixels per inch) protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage aided by a microSD card slot and 25GB of free Dropbox for two years, UltraPixel rear-facing camera, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, front-facing BoomSound stereo speakers, and a generous 3,200mAh battery. On the software side, it's presumed Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is running the show, along with HTC Sense 5 with BlinkFeed.

For the sake of comparison, the HTC One sports a 4.7-inch display, 1.7GHz quad-core processor, and a 2,300mAh battery. It's also a decent upgrade over the original Butterfly, which features the same size display but with Corning Gorilla Glass 2, 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm S4 processor, 8MP rear-facing camera, and a comparatively pedestrian 2,020mAh battery.
