Japanese carrier KDDI au announced the HTC J Butterfly (HTL21), the world’s first smartphone to have a 5-inch 1920×1080 Full HD Super LCD 3 touchscreen display. With a 1080p resolution, the 5-inch screen, made by Sharp and JDI, actually offers a pixel density of 440ppi, far above Apple’s 326ppi Retina display. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s SnapDragon S4 Pro APQ8064 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. It supports 800/1500 4G LTE network.
The HTC J Butterfly sports a 8 Megapixel main camera with BSI CMOS sensor and a 2.1 Megapixel front-facing camera. Both cameras have F/2.0 aperture for better low-light performance, and are capable of Full HD 1920x1080p video recording. The Full HD smartphone includes Beats Audio to provide cinema-like sound experience. It supports Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band WiFi 802.11b/g/n and GPS/AGPS connectivity. NFC is also supported and you can also find HDMI output, DLNA nad InfraRed. The handset is IPX5 water-resistant as well.
HTC J Butterfly runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 4+. It comes with 16GB internal storage and supports microSD/SDHC up to 32GB. Sadly, the 2020mAh battery is not removable. KDDI au will release the J Butterfly HTL21 in early December.
