HTC unveils the HTC J Butterfly for Japan featuring a 5-inch 1080p display and quad-core S4 processor -
Let us introduce you to the HTC J Butterfly, the world’s first Android phone with a 5-inch 1080p display. We’ve heard rumors about a Verizon-bound device with many of the same features as the HTC J Butterfly, but it looks like our friends over in Japan will be the first to actually get their hands on the phone.
The HTC J Butterfly features an impressive array of specifications. HTC has equipped the handset with a 5-inch 1080p Super LCD 3 (the first of its kind), a blazing fast 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor (MDM9615 + APQ8064), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot which can add an additional 32GB of storage for all your media. The only item on the spec sheet which is a bit disappointing is the HTC J Butterfly’s 2020 mAh battery.
While the display on the HTC one X has been regarded by most tech blogs as the best 720p display on the market, several sources are already claiming that the 1080p Super LCD 3 display on the HTC J Butterfly easily outclasses it.

The HTC J Butterfly will not be make available outside of Japan, but HTC claims that the 5-inch 1080p Super LCD 3 display will be showing up on other HTC phones in the near future – heading us to believe that Verizon’s HTC DLX announcement could be right around the corner.
