HTC’s new phone has all the specs necessary to compete with today;s top flagships. Unfortunately, it will only be available in Japan for the moment.
Just like the guys at GSMArena have mentioned, it is getting quite difficult to tell which one is HTC’s flagship. First we get the One M9, then, shortly after, they launch the One M9+, and now we have the Butterfly J, which out-specs them all.
From the design point of view. the new HTC Butterfly J is just like the HTC Desire Eye and the Desire 826. It also has the dual front-facing stereo speakers and a centered secondary camera. It features a plastic unibody design which is resistant to both water and dust. There is no fingerprint scanner but that is not much of a problem.
What really impressed us and everyone else about this phone is the spec sheet. From the start, we could tell we were dealing with a very interesting device here, as it boasts Qualcomm’s state-of-the-art chip, the Snapdragon 810.
Besides the chip, we also have 3GB RAM and another 32GB storage space to which we can add 128GB more via the microSD card slot. The phone features HTC’s own dual-camera technology on the back. Thus, we’re dealing with a 20-megapixel senzor and there is also the possibility of achieving selective focus after the picture was taken. It can even record videos at a 2160p resolution.
The secondary camera has 13 megapixels and it is ideal for the selfie lovers out there. The battery has only 2,700 mAh, which is means it is quite small, especially if we take into consideration the fact that the phone boasts a 5.2-inch QHD screen.
The phone will apparently be available in japan at the beginning of June 2015 in three different colors: red white and indigo blue. It is uncertain whether the phones will make it to other markets. We will probably find out more about the HTC Butterfly J in the following days.
