HTC appears to have blown most of the competition away today with the announcement of the HTC J Butterfly in Japan. While it might not boast the most flattering (or logical) name, it’s specs make it a powerhouse in the Android world.
The display on the J Butterfly is the best part about it. It features a 5-inch 1080p Super LCD 3 display (the first of it’s kind) with an astounding pixel density of 440ppi – that’s 114 more pp than the iPhone 5. This will make absolute certain that color reproduction and clarity are nothing short of amazing and it appears that’s the case.
Also inside is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5 GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM. It’s also got NFC, 4G LTE, an 8 megapixel back camera and a 2.1 megapixel front camera, all of which you’d expect from a phone of this caliber. Out of the box it’ll be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+ which HTC recently announced alongside the One X+.
HTC says this device won’t be making it to the US in it’s current form, although we can expect that the display will be utilized in many of HTC’s phones going forward. The J Butterfly will be available in Japan in December of this year.
