I think it's stupid to make the same phone with just a better display in a high end war

Should have launched it this month worldwide, HTC is late again. Should steal some sales from the Note 2, but then again by the time this reaches the US carriers it will be December at best.

Did you see how they announced a revolutionary 1080 display phone? In a website with a 'coming soon' tag.... No grand unpacking event, no teasers, advertisement whatsoever... There is a reason why HTC fall behind Samsung even if they have great products under their belts...

Totally agree !! They dont have any marketing what so ever, first 1080 display phone and no event or sth ? HTC would have much grather sales if they know how to make good marketing

The battery should not just "a little bit" better. "A lot" better! Seriously it is freaking joke a 1080p, 440ppi, 5inch with a 2020mah? Either this is not a final spec or sense4 have serious battery saving capability. I don't get it. Someone care to enlighten me?

And one more jerk for you dude, i just read in another blog that the battery is embedded... So No chances for spare batteries. Its the official specs, so it should be final.... To drive those 2073600 pixels for one day, a 2020 battery will never be enough even if they have the state-of-the-art software-battery optimization IMO.

I wouldnt hold my breath, I think they would release a slightly better international version! I hope 2100mah + battery and 13mpx camera like the padfone 2 :)

This is the 1080p smartphone we've all been waiting for judging from the leaked images circulating online a few weeks ago. But isn't htc j available in taiwan a long time ago? It also kinda looks like a bigger version-http://www.htc.com/tw/htcj/

440 ppi, and at least a 1.9-2.0 FF camera might get me in, only if Antenna proves strong.

And a crappy battery? As usual, HTC disappoints in the battery department.
