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.

HTC has been in the doldrums for the past year or so, having been fast overtaken by other smartphone manufacturers, particularly Samsung and Apple.

In case you forgot, Apple and Samsung are about to face each other in U.S. courts again in a new episode of the first lawsuit between the two companies in the country. Earlier this summer Apple was awarded a favorable verdict, with the jury saying that Samsung has to pay $1.05 billion in damages to the iPhone maker.
