HTC J Butterfly Set to Release Worldwide as HTC Deluxe

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.

    The HTC One X screen is the best I've seen on a phone so this should be awesome. Hope the battery's good.

    NOW>......this is what I would consider retina display, not that Apple crap that's not even 720p or higher

    Up the storage to 64GB and I may be tempted, anything less on a 1080p phone in this day and age is pretty pathetic.

    greghomeNOW>......this is what I would consider retina display, not that Apple crap that's not even 720p or higherNow, I'm no Apple fan but I'm no brand name hater either. The pixel density Apple has achieved was sufficient for most people as I've read, and when I see screens that boast this much DPI, I already wonder, to what purpose? Unless you're one of those people with super-acute vision that could still supposedly "see through" the Apple's Retina Display, then maybe screens like these with really high DPI would be for you, but if not, I feel like you'd just be using a phone that's unnecessarily doing extra processing for that resolution to no avail.

    Now, the question is, does it even need to be 720p or up? Maybe you could've complained that their screen isn't big enough (which would mean other products may better suit your needs), but having a higher resolution for the sake of having a higher resolution? Come on now...

    Here's an interesting read, BTW:

    to bad the Android OS makes this phone seem slow because of all the crap that runs in the background....also the us network is not able to handle quad core smart-phones every well
  • I would honestly get this. It is in my upgrade cycle, I love HTC, used them for years, but 16GB Storage and no Micro SD. if it was 64GB or has a Micro SD slot it would be a sale.

    16 GB, how many HD movies can I fit on that, hmm not even 1.....
