HTC Japan recently announced their entry to the now “popular” 5.0-incher smartphone or what we call “phablet”, which are too small for tablet adn too large to be a smartphone. The phone in question is the HTC J Butterfly. HTC J Butterfly is a 5.0″ smartphone with Super LCD3 display that features a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a pixel density of the astonishing 440 ppi, which YugaTech is saying “..an overkill since the human eye can only distinguish around 300 ppi.”
The J Butterfly is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box and uses a quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 2GB of RAM and a 16GB internal storage that also have with a microSD card slot that you can expand up to 32 GB. The camera is not to be taken light, since it’s an 8 megapixel camera, capable of 1080p video recording and a 2 megapixel camera front camera.
The phone also supports LTE and NFC, it’s also IPX5 certification which means that the phone is dust and water-proof. The battery though is a let down, since it’s only a 2,020mAh.
Unless you’re living in Japan, don’t expect to see HTC J Butterfly in your local retailer, since it’ll be sold only in Japan on AU/KDDI in December. I guess, if the demand for HTC J Butterfly is high on other markets, HTC might reconsider.
