HTC Butterfly is official – international GSM variant of the Droid DNA monsterphone
Without much fanfare, HTC just made its Butterfly Android smartphone official, and the device already has its dedicated page on the company's web site. We're looking at a handset nearly identical to the J Butterfly, which was announced for Japan back in October, and the HTC Droid DNA, which Verizon subscribers in the U.S. can already buy. What makes the HTC Butterfly different, however, is that it is an international device that will get along well with GSM carriers throughout the world.
Other than that, there's nothing really new about the HTC Butterfly, and no, we aren't complaining about it. The smartphone comes with the same monstrous 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. There is a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro ticking at 1.5GHz inside the handset. You also get a pair of cameras - an 8-megapixel one in the back with a dedicated ImageChip for zero shutter lag, and a 2MP front-facing snapper. For more details about the device, our HTC Droid DNA review might hold the answers to your burning questions.
Unfortunately, we don't know what international markets the HTC Butterfly will be released in. No word in regards to pricing has been revealed either, but we hope to know more on the matter soon.
