HTC on Wednesday unwrapped it's much anticipated smartphone with full HD display, J Butterfly, in Japan.
The rumors about a possible 5-inch smartphone that features a 1080p display have been doing the rounds for a very long time. The flagship device of the company comes with a 5.0-inch, Super LCD3, 1920 x 1080 resolution display, which is its most stunning feature. The display is slightly bigger than that of its recently launched HTC One X measuring 134.4 x 69.9 x 8.9 mm.
"The Super LCD 2 seen in HTC's previous flagship One X was arguably the best panel on the market, but we think its successor is the new champion," The Verge reported.
HTC J Butterfly will be initially available only in Japan and the company has talked nothing about an international debut of the first full HD smartphone.The device will be available in three color variants - red, white and black. The company website also did not mention about the availability of the launched product.
J Butterfly packs a quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 processor and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. It also comes equipped with an 8-megapixel camera which allows the user to take a still image of up to 3280x2464 and 1080p of video recording. The device is backed by a 2,020 mAh battery and packs 16GB of internal storage memory expandable up to 32GB through a microSD card. There's also support for LTE, NFC, HDMI and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. The device is rated at IPX5 and is waterproof.
The China-based manufacturer, which is struggling to catch up with the smartphone market, expects to regain a strong hold with its latest iteration.
