HTC Unveils J Butterfly Phablet for Japan



HTC is scheduled to release a new “phablet” device in early December, but only in Japan.

Version Of HTC

The HTC J Butterfly, an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device, was unveiled by Japanese telecommunications company KDDI, which touted the smartphone’s 5-inch, 440ppi full-HD Super LCD 3 panel screen, according to Engadget.

The Butterfly runs a 1.5-GHz, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, which is also found on the U.S.-bound LG Optimus G and “turned in the fastest benchmarks scores we’ve ever seen on an Android phone,” PCMag said.

Features Of HTC

The Butterfly carries an 8-megapixel, rear-facing camera to shoot up to 1080p video, along with a 2.1-megapixel front lens, Engadget said. Additionally, the global device includes 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSDHC expansion, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC. It’s also waterproof.

Consumers on KDDI can snag an HTC Butterfly device in red, white, or black in December.

Several phone makers have been exploring the “phablet” concept, or smartphones that straddle the phone/tablet line with displays larger than 5 inches. Samsung will soon releaseits 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II, and the 5-inch LG Intuition hit Verizon last month.
