HTC reveals J Butterfly smartphone for Japan with 5-inch 1080p display and Android 4.1

Wait, can it be? Yes, HTC has finally revealed its long-rumored 5-inch smartphone, and it’s quite a device. The HTC J Butterfly is the company’s newest feat, sporting a Super LCD 3 1080p panel (440ppi), a Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, LTE and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean . Users will also receive 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a MicroSD slot, 2020mAh batter, as well as an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing shooter. The J Butterfly weighs in at just 140 grams and measures 9.11mm thick.

While we’ve seen this smartphone before wearing similarly-suited US attire, HTC’s J Butterfly is currently limited to KDDI’s network in Japan. Of course, there’s always a chance we could see a variant of this device announced for America (probably on Verizon), we’ll have to sit still until any more information emerges.

Regardless, HTC has crafted a magnificent device–one that boasts all of the latest hardware and specs. Are you impressed? Would you pick one up if it came to the US?

    Why can’t we have this as a nexus?

  • Bluebriz

    Au website lists it as running 4.0, not 4.1….

      That’s strange. The J Butterfly for KDDI is definitely running Jelly Bean though.

    J. Butterfly Wasn’t that a Chili Peppers lyric? “J. Butterfly is in the treetop. Birds that blow the meaning into bebop”.
    Interesting fact, I just looked that up, and she was an environmentalist that lived in a tree to prevent it from being cut down.

    440ppi… wtf! I’ve never heard of any comercial device with a ppi higher than 355. 2GB or RAM, external SD. That’s the phone of my damn dreams! HTC is one serious competitor for Samsung, they are actually making better devices IMO. I wish they have more public acceptance.

      Btw… is this a new pixel density record? It deserves more publicity.
