HTC to Fly High with J Butterfly; Launches Brand New Phablet

October 18, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

With more and more phones rolling out on a daily basis, HTC also wanted to get involved in the competition. That’s why they have come up with a new phablet that will make other phones look like an outcast.

Named J Butterfly, the phone sports a 1.5GHz processor that can handle all the associated processes. Though release dates and pricing aren’t clear yet, all other technical details have been revealed by HTC and it looks good.

Boasting an impressive 5-inch Super LCD with a staggering 1080 x 1920 resolution, it has a pixel density of 440ppi that puts even the iPhone 5 behind. Featuring Android 4.1 Jellybean as its OS, this device has a 2 GB RAM that can carry out all the background services.

There’s an 8MP camera on the back that is equipped with the capability of recording 1080p video, while the front facing shooter offers up a 2.1 megapixel sensor.

There are connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G support and the official statement says that there will be a microSD slot to store all the bid data.

The real issue with the J Butterfly is bound to be battery life.

HTC has put in a 2,200mAh battery into the handset, which is larger than most of its rivals, but everyone can still see that huge screen eating through it before the day is out.

The UK and US HTC J Butterfly release date and price are currently unknown; as the Taiwanese firm hasn’t mentioned which regions it will be shipping the flagship handset to, other than Japan.
