We’ve been telling you about HTC’s phablet in the past. The device has been officially announced in Japan where KDDI will sell it under the name of HTC J Butterfly (model number HTL21). In that sense, the phone comes as a beefed-up version of KDDI’s HTC J, which we know as the Japanese version of HTC One S.
Aside from the 5-inch, 440ppi full HD screen (Super LCD 3), the Butterfly rocks Qualcomm’s quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2-megapixel front-facing one, 16GB of built-in storage, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE/HSPA+ and Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS and so on. It’s also worth noting that we’re talking about a global device, one that can work across different GSM networks around the world. Moreover, it’s a waterproof phone, rated at IPX5.
Interested Japanese will be able to grab the HTC J Butterfly at some point in December and we hope the rest of the world will get it at that time too…
