HTC Announces the J Butterfly

Surely up there with the ChaCha, Salsa and Rhyme, HTC has announced its most bizarrely named smartphone yet: the J Butterfly. However, just because its name isn’t as cool as the Evo, Desire or Sensation, doesn’t mean it’s not exciting – it has a 1080p display.

That’s right, we’ve been going on about the prospect of a full-HD resolution display for a while, as many manufacturers appear to be experimenting with very high resolution screens at the moment.  The J Butterfly is one of the very first to be properly announced, and its spec is very similar to the leaked HTC One X5. However, before you get your wallets out, the new phone is only available in Japan at the moment.

Like the leaked One X5, the J Butterfly’s screen has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, 5-inch Super LCD 3 screen, and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM. The operating system is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, plus an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording sits on the rear of the phone.

Other features include Bluetooth 4.0, a microSD card slot, 4G connectivity, GPS, NFC and a sizable 2200mAh battery too. There’s no official release date for the J Butterfly, with HTC’s Japanese site saying only that it’s coming soon.

We’re hoping it’s coming to the UK soon too, and when it does, there’s a chance it will be badged as a Nexus device, should the rumours turn out to be accurate. The 1080p revolution has begun, and we’re pretty excited about it, even if it has arrived with a bit of a silly name.
