There has long been talk that HTC would be releasing a 5-inch Full HD smartphone, and then the company released the HTC J Butterfly in Japan ahead of the Droid DNA in the US for Verizon customers. Now the company has quietly announced the HTC Butterfly that loses the J for a release worldwide to consumers.
When HTC first revealed the J Butterfly in Japan the company stated that the screen technology would be seen elsewhere, and recently released the Droid DNA in the US. Now the company has revealed the Butterfly that will be hitting other markets around the world in the coming weeks or months.
To recap the HTC Butterfly will feature a 5-inch 1080p display providing an impressive 440ppi pixel density, which is powered by a quad core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor that is clocked at 1.5GHz and teamed with 2GB of RAM, and there is also 4G LTE connectivity.
Other features include an eight megapixel rear camera capable of 1080p video capture at 30fps, while around the front is a 2.1 megapixel unit that is capable of 720p. It is thought the device will come running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean coupled with HTC’s Sense 4+ Android overlay.
All this is powered by a 2,020 mAh battery unit that is housed in a form factor measuring only 9.1mm thick, the company has yet at the time of writing to confirm a release date or the exact version of Android the handset will be running, and you never know they may ship it running Android 4.2.
The company will be hoping that the likes of the Butterfly and the popular One X+ turns around the recent slide it has been experiencing in sales as it slips behind the likes of Apple and Samsung. HTC are certainly going the right way with handsets such as this in their line up that gives Android fans yet another worthy handset to choose from.
