HTC have unveiled a new smartphone called the HTC J Butterfly in Japan, although sadly at this time we don't have any confirmation that it'll launch in the UK.
We really hope it does go on to launch in the UK because the HTC J Butterfly has a high-end specification which includes a fabulous 5 inch Super LCD 3 display. The touch-screen runs at 1080p (1920*1080 pixels) which gives it a PPI of 440. The iPhone 5 only has a PPI of 326 , which gives you an idea of just how good the Butterfly's display is.
The HTC J Butterfly is powered by a quad-core 1.5 GHz snapdragon processor and has 2GB of RAM, which gives it more than enough power to take advantage of all the benefits of Android Jelly Bean. Such a powerful device needs a solid battery and HTC's smartphone comes with a 2020 mAh , which is more than adequate.
Both an 8 mega-pixel rear-facing camera and a 2.1 mega-pixel front facing camera are also present on the HTC J Butterfly. While the on-board storage comes in at 16GB which can be expanded using microSD cards (up to 32GB).
Supported connectivity includes NFC, WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth and even 4G LTE. That opens up the possibility for the HTC J Butterfly to launch on EE's 4G network if it ever makes it onto our shores.
The HTC J Butterfly will launch in Japan in Red, White and Black very soon. As soon as 3G get news about a potential UK launch we'll let you know, but we don't see any reason why it wouldn't be released here.
