The HTC J Butterfly is currently only available in Japan, but the 5-inch smartphone could receive a global release in the form of the Deluxe. EvLeaks tweeted a leaked official picture of the device along with the message "HTC Deluxe, global edition". During October, HTC announced a full 1080p smartphone in the form of the J Butterfly.
Featuring a 5-inch screen, the handset is the first device to make use of Super LCD 3 standard, while existing HTC devices like the One X settle for Super LCD 2 technology. Along with 440ppi pixel density, the Super LCD 3 offers a pixel resolution of 1,920 x 1,080, with the majority of current handsets having 1,280 x 720 pixel displays.
Powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the J Butterfly features an 8-megapixel camera on the back, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera, full HD video recording support, a Qualcomm 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
With MWC 2013 in Barcelona in the offing, as well as CES in January, expect HTC unveil Deluxe in either event.
