  • HTC J Butterfly : World's first 5-inch Android phone with full HD display

    Earlier this week, HTC unveiled it's latest high-end device, the HTC J Butterfly which is the world's first smartphone with a 5-inch 1080p display. Running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+ UI on top, the HTC J Butterfly comes with a Super LCD 3 display panel with 440 pixels per inch (ppi). Under the hood, the device is a powerhouse and gets a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon APQ8064 processor with 2 GB of RAM. Specifications : Processor: 1.5 GHz quad core processor with 2GB RAM Storage: 16 GB internal, Micro-SD card slor OS: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+ UI overlay Camera: 8 MP primary, 2.1 MP secondary Display: Super LCD 3, Full HD (440 ppi) Battery: 2020 mAh Connectivity: Bluetooth 4, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS Dimensions: 5.63 x 2.8 x 0.36- inches, 140 grams Expected time of launch: December, 2012 (Japan) At the back, there's an 8 megapixel camera that is capable of recording videos in full HD and at the front, there's a 2.1 megapixel sensor. With such super impressive specifications, the HTC J Butterfly puts all others smartphones to shame that available in the market today, including the iPhone 5. The phone comes with 16 GB of internal storage which can be expanded using a micro-SD card. Other than that, the phone comes loaded with connectivity options like 4G LTE connectivity, Near Field Communication, HDMI port, Bluetooth v4.0, Infrared and DLNA connectivity. Available in three colors: Red, White and Black, the phone itself is quite slim measuring just 9.1mm in thickness. With such top of the line specifications, the only real downer for the phone could be it's battery which is "just" 2020 mAh. Though the battery is still much larger than most of the other smartphones in the market today, but with a 5-inch 1080p diplay, it seems that it would barely last a day on a single charge.
    As of now, the HTC J Butterfly is a Japan-only model but it seems that HTC would soon announce a device with similar specifications for the other markets around the world as well.
