HTC J Butterfly Flagship Released In Japan

It's getting progressively harder to disclose which exactly smartphone is HTC's current flagship and a newly announced model in Japan further complicates things. The recent device is named J Butterfly and has a pretty impressive specsheet.

For starters, it comes with a 5.2-inch Super LCD3 QHD display - in between the 5.5-inch One E9+ and 5-inch One M9, and on par with the One M9+. It is, however, the only QHD smartphone the company has announced, powered by the Snapdragon 810 chipset, as the E9+ and M9+ both rely on a Mediatek solution. There's also 3GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) on board as well as 32GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via microSD.

It only gets more fascinating from here on, though. The J Butterfly's headline feature is the 20.2MP DUO capturing camera on the back for capturing distance information and achieving post-shot selective focus, as well as a bunch of creative effects. The main capturing camera can shoot 2160p video, too. The more narcissistic folk will appreciate the 13MP front shooter.

The J Butterfly's polycarbonate body measures 151×73×10.1mm, weighs 162g and comes with IP55/IP57 for protection against the elements. The smartphone will be available in red, white, and indigo blue, with all three sporting a glossy finish on the back.

Battery power is listed at 2,700mAh and the device supports quick charging. HTC quotes 110-minute charging time, though with an optional AC adapter. In typical HTC fashion, there's high quality audio circuitry on board as well as dual front speakers.

The HTC J Butterfly is listed on Japanese carrier KDDI's website with a release scheduled for early June. Whether a global launch will follow remains to be seen.
