According to the company, J Butterfly will go on sale in the country in early December; however it did not reveal anything about the international launch.
This is the first full HD smartphone that we have seen till now; the display on the phone sports a huge 440 pixels-per-inch (PPI). Other features of the HTC J Butterfly include 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 Pro quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage.
The smartphone also comes with 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, Android 4.1, HTC Sense 4+ and 2020 mAh battery.
Connectivity options include HDMI out, microUSB, Infrared, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC.
J Butterfly is expected to be a Japan specific model, but we hope to see similar phone from HTC in other countries.
We have also heard rumours of a Nexus smartphone from the company, which is going to be based on J Butterfly, but no credible reports have come out so-far.
