As rumoured, HTC has announced its first smartphone with a full HD display in Japan on Wednesday. Featuring a 5-inch Super LCD 3 display with 1920×1080 resolution, the smartphone is known as HTC J Butterfly and will be released on Japanese telco au by KDDI.
According to the company, J Butterfly will go on sale in the country in early December; however it did not reveal anything about the international launch.
This is the first full HD smartphone that we have seen till now; the display on the phone sports a huge 440 pixels-per-inch (PPI). Other features of the HTC J Butterfly include 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 Pro quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage.
The smartphone also comes with 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, Android 4.1, HTC Sense 4+ and 2020 mAh battery.
Connectivity options include HDMI out, microUSB, Infrared, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC.
J Butterfly is expected to be a Japan specific model, but we hope to see similar phone from HTC in other countries.
HTC, which is struggling big time in the smartphone market, is trying to focus on high-end devices to get back to its original spot. Company had recently launched an improved version of its flagship One X, called One X+, which will soon available in countries across the globe.
We have also heard rumours of a Nexus smartphone from the company, which is going to be based on J Butterfly, but no credible reports have come out so-far.
