HTC seems to be going bit over-ambitious with the pricing of its Butterfly smartphone. It is expected that HTC will launch the Butterfly in India in the next two-three weeks around Rs. 49,000. However, AndroidOS reported that the device would be available in two weeks at a price of Rs. 44,000.

pricing of the smartphone seems too high, given available options in the
market. The HTC Butterfly smartphone is powered by a
1.5 GHz Qualcomm S4 Pro quad-core processor and features 5-inch S-LCD 3
with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 & Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. It
runs on the latest Android 4.1 with HTC Sense and offers 16 GB of
internal storage and microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB of
storage. The device also incorporates 2 GB of RAM.On
the connectivity front, the device features Bluetooth with aptX enabled
(Bluetooth 4.0), DLNA for wirelessly streaming media, micro-USB 2.0
(5-pin) port with MHL for USB. The phone also boasts 8 megapixel camera
with auto focus, LED flash, and BSI senso), F2.0 aperture and 28mm lens.
Additionally, 2.1 megapixel front facing camera is available that
allows 1080p for video chat. The phone is equipped with a 2020 mAh
The specifications of this device seem attractive, but Rs. 50K price might fail to woo the Indian customers.
