HTC has finally unveiled its own smartphone and tablet hybrid device that will get head to head with this year’s line of “Phablets” like Samsung GALAXY Note 2, LG Optimus Vu, Panasonic Eluga Power, and among others. Named as HTC J Butterfly, the handset features a 5-inch Super LCD3 display with full HD resolution (1080p), inside its form-factor of 143 x 71 x 9.1mm. The HTC J Butterfly joins the new range of quad-core powered superphones through its Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 processor ticking at 1.5GHz. It has twice as much RAM (2GB) compared to HTC One X with base data space of 16GB and an option to expand storage through the microSD card slot.
The HTC J Butterfly is loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box and supports both LTE and NFC technology. HTC has also decided to make this handset dust and waterproof, which of course adds up to its selling points.
It may be strange however that the handset only has 2,020mAh of power source, but not until we see user-complaints for the battery draining so fast – then I guess power isn’t really an issue on this superphone.
The HTC J Butterfly is said to be exclusive only in Japan and would start selling comes December. Of course, we can always expect HTC to release similar handset in other markets. [via]
