HTC Announces Butterfly, International Droid DNA
The first phone on the market with a 1080p display was the HTC J Butterfly in Japan. Then the company brought it’s awesome screen to the American carrier Verizon Wireless in a device called Droid DNA and now the Taiwanese phone-maker has finally announced (silently, at that) the global variant of the smartphone (as in it just popped up on its Global website).
It is called Butterfly (sans the J this time) and its specifications seem to be identical to the Droid DNA. That means you’ve got the same five-inch Super LCD 3 screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC running at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory (expandable with a microSD card slot), eight-megapixel main camera, 2.1MP front-facer, and the usual suspects like Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS, and NFC. Everything is powered by a 2,020mAh battery and the platform is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense on top of it.
There you have it! It’s not the DLX nor the Deluxe but it’s the same phone which will be available for all the regions that were drooling over the Droid DNA and couldn’t get it because the geographical location.
We’re still waiting for the official press release with details about pricing and availability but it shouldn’t take long. Who’s getting the Butterfly?
