The 5-inch HTC J Butterfly smartphone has been recently unveiled in Japan, but the phablet contender will soon arrive in other markets as well. In fact, we’ve known for a while that the handset was heading to the U.S. via Verizon, and we have more pictures of the smartphone to prove it.
With large phones (or “phablets) gaining popularity, we’re starting to see phones like the HTC J Butterfly popping up with 1080p displays. Now that we have the ability to create phones with 1080p displays, the question is: do we even need them?
The race for who can deliver the world’s first ever smartphone with a stunning 1080p display has been on for a while, and with HTC unveiling the J Butterfly, the ball got thrown again in Oppo’s court.
HTC has finally confirmed all our previous speculation with the announcement of the J Butterfly in Japan. This brings us a true HD 5-inch smartphone, but it is far from the only one in the works. HTC’s new phablet may have received its big unveiling earlier today, but the Oppo Find 5 is just around the corner.
Fly like a butterfly, sting like an HTC! How about that for a publicity slogan for the newly unveiled, but long rumored HTC J Butterfly “phablet”?
We’ve been hearing rumors about HTC making a 5 inch 1080p Android flagship device for several months now. At first we didn’t believe them, but then both Sharp and Japan Display (JDI) confirmed that they’ve begun mass producing the ultra sharp panels. Today we’re pleased to announce that the HTC J Butterfly has been unveiled in Japan, and it has that oh so delicious screen we’ll all soon be lusting after!
