From HTC is being harder to identify the brand’s current flagship smartphone. Now, there is a newly announced model in Japan, called J Butterfly and comes with pretty impressive specs.
It comes with a 5.2-inch Super LCD3 QHD display, in between the 5.5-inch One E9+ and 5-inch One M9, and on par with the One M9+. Besides, it´s the only QHD device from HTC which is powered by the Snapdragon 810 chipset, as the E9+ and M9+ both rely on a Mediatek. There’s also 3GB of RAM on board as well as 32GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via microSD.
The J Butterfly’s headline feature is the 20.2MP DUO camera on the back for capturing distance information and achieving post-shot selective focus and other creative effects, while it also can shoot 2160p video. The front camera will provide photos with a 13MP front shooter.
The device has a polycarbonate body, measures 151×73×10.1mm, weighs 162g and comes with IP55/IP57 for protection against the elements. The smartphone will be available in red, white, and indigo blue, with all three sporting a glossy finish on the back.
Battery’s capacity is listed at 2,700mAh and will support quick charging. HTC quotes 110-minute charging time, though with an optional AC adapter. In typical HTC fashion, there’s high quality audio circuitry on board as well as dual front speakers. The HTC J Butterfly is listed on the Japanese carrier KDDI’s website with release scheduled for early June. It remains to be seen when the global release will take place.
