The rumors that HTC is working on a smartphone with 5″ screen and 1080p full HD resolution are officially confirmed – the new “phone” is called HTC J Butterfly HTL21. Unfortunately, the Butterfly is for the Japanese users only as the device is intended for the network operator AU/KDDI and will be sold in December.
HTC J Butterfly HTL21 works with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and relies on a powerful quad-core processor – Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 clocked @ 1.5GHz, the other specs are: 2GB of RAM, 8MP main camera and 2.1MP for video calls, 5 inch Super LCD 3 screen with full HD resolution – 1920×1080 that provides a pixel density of 440 ppi and a battery with capacity of 2020 mAh.
According to The Verge, the new phone managed to ensure an image quality even better than the Super LCD 2 panel used in HTC One X, which is one of the best phone screens on the market. As we noted, the new smartphone is only for Japan, but HTC shared some information that the Super LCD 3 screen will appear in some of the other upcoming models.
