HTC J Butterfly red

Love high-end specs in your Android phones? If so, you may be interested in the device that HTC just introduced in Japan, dubbed the HTC J Butterfly. Announced for Japan, the J Butterfly features a 5-inch Super LCD 3 display with a resolution of 1920x1080, which works out to around 440ppi. Along with that high-res display, the J Butterfly touts a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 16GB storage, microSDHC support, 2GB RAM, NFC and a 2,020mAh battery packed into its 9.1mm-thick body. There are also 8-megapixel rear and 2.1-megapixel front cameras. The HTC J Butterfly comes preloaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and will be available in Japan in black, red or white.

We've been hearing rumors about a mysterious HTC Android device with a 5-inch 1080p display for a while now, and today it looks like HTC has finally confirmed all of those reports with the J Butterfly. This device looks pretty similar to the one that leaked out in some blurry images back in September, complete with the red accent on the side of the device. The J Butterfly's got a pretty impressive spec sheet, including a quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, though its 5-inch 1080p display will likely garner the most attention of any of its features.

As for when we might see this thing stateside, HTC hasn't mentioned any U.S. release details yet. However, it's been said that an HTC device with a 5-inch 1080p display could be heading to Verizon, so that may be something for Big Red customers to keep in the back of their minds. So what do you all make of the HTC J Butterfly? Does its high-res display have you instinctively reaching for the nearest credit card?

Lawrence Lepes That sounds like a cool phone! I wonder what type of legal action those crybabies and cowards at Apple are going to do about this phone. Nice job HTC!
Mike Orf
Mike Orf Not only does it have a small battery, but it also has the shitty bliss Sense u.i. and not the normal one. Basically it'll be pushed away just like the rhyme was.

Iesha Hawkins
Iesha Hawkins My phone is the Motorola Atrix HD. It's only 4.5 inches, but it's plenty big enough for me, and it also has a 1080p screen. The Butterfly looks nice, but to me, it's not worth it.
Geraldy Reyes
Geraldy Reyes Outdated by release date. Lmao!
Frank Nitty
Frank Nitty Removable battery ?
Hansel Starley
Hansel Starley Yes.
Nick Catelli
Nick Catelli 2,020mAh battery AND a 1080p screen? I'll pass... I like my phone to last more than 2 hours on one charge, thanks. But on the real, 1080p is a marketing gimmick on a smartphone screen that's 5 inches. It's often difficult to tell the difference between 1080p and 720p at normal viewing distances on full screen televisions. The benefits of such a screen in a smartphone form factor, besides just telling your friends how cool it is that your phone has a 1080p screen, are pretty short. I'd gladly take 720p and get the rest of my battery life back.
