HTC’s new J Butterfly is the waterproof One (M8) you always wanted
HTC has been on a roll of positive results this year, something that we’ve all wanted to happen as this is one of the last remaining smartphone pioneers of our time. The HTC One (M8), and the legacy left by last year’s HTC One have been both responsible for the company’s return to success, and it seems that HTC is out for more.
HTC and KDDI have just announced the new J Butterfly for the Japanese market. Surely this is an exclusive for that market, but if any of you remember the old Droid DNA, you’ll also remember that it was based off the original J Butterly. What makes this phone hot is that it’s almost like an HTC One (M8) in specifications, but the things that differ are actually a fix to the things we wish we had. The spec sheet includes a 5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, WiFi 802.11ac, LTE-Advanced, 150Mbps 4g, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat, in addition to the improved 13 megapixel duo camera, and a waterproof body.
HTC has an event planned for August 19th and most of us still wonder what to expect from it. If there is another Droid DNA in the works, this would be HTC’s opportunity to gain some extra fame in the US market this fall.
