The HTC Butterfly is out, sporting a full HD screen, a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, and an 8MP camera. The phone is the international version of Verizon's Droid DNA and the Japan-only HTC J Butterfly. Previous rumors have suggested that this phone will be called HTC DLX/Deluxe, but HTC decided for something less tacky. Check out the official HTC Butterfly image gallery after the jump.
The international HTC Butterfly/DNA/DLX is now official, but when is it coming out?
HTC announced a 1080p smartphone in mid-October called the J Butterfly. We wondered when it would land in other countries, and sure enough it launched in the United States about a month later as the Droid DNA on Verizon. But what about Europe and other Asian countries? We heard it was going to be called the DLX, but it turns out those rumors were incorrect. HTC has finally made the device official, and it's simply called "Butterfly".
