HTC J Butterfly first promo video surfaces

HTC J Butterfly first promo video surfaces
The HTC J Butterfly just got announced in Japan, and while it’s not coming in the same form and shape to the United States, or Western markets, its most intriguing feature, the 5-inch 1080p Super LCD3 display is.

The display is succeeds what’s widely seen to be one of the best displays on the market right now, and that is the Super LCD2 720p screen on the HTC One X. The new screen has a pixel density of the impressive 440ppi. It’s not just the size and resolution, though. Color reproduction and the convex shape also make it stand out.

And now, we have the first promo video for the HTC J Butterfly, showing off what the screen looks like along with other new features in the camera department. Check it out below.

Bull$hit. I bet over 90% of their apps are still not updated to take advantage of the screen they just released. Why throw in another resolution so soon? It will be more like 2 years and that's why Apple sucks.

Nokia, Samsung, LG, HTC will all beat it with a cornea display.

The most exciting thing in the market right now, I saw the picture of this screen and iPhone 5 side by side and J is a clear winner.

It should be.. SInce J stands for Japan. It should probably be called the HTC 5X or the X5...

1080p resolution is really something...along with the 440ppi. Now i want to know the battery capacity since HTC has always been giving a l'le less than what others give. I'm not sure if butterfly is a good name...sounds too feminine. Imagine a hugely built man walking in a bar, shows of his HTC J. Others around him are intrigued and asks him the name. Replies: "Butterfly". :D

hahaaha^ still would be better if it were just "butterfly" instead of J butterfly wtf???

Dude! Just learned about the 2020mah non-removable battery...that is a mega-bumper-serious let down. I'm really bummed why HTC can't give the customers a l'le bit of extra juice in every phone. What is wrong with them?? This trend has been theirs since they began going Android. Someone must knock some serious sense into them.

relax i thing that for the int and us versions they will put the same 2100 mah battery from the HTC One X+

Dude, i'm sorry but am i supposed to be enlightened that it might be 80mah more that what it is rumored to have?? What difference would 2100mah have over 2020mah??

I respect your opinion, but the iPhone 5 has a 1440 mah battery and the iPhone 4/4s has 1430 mah, and the iPhone 5 has better battery life than the 4/4s, even than it has LTE and bigger resolusion... So i thing the HTC J will have better battery life from the One X/+, because the S4 Pro has 28nm and the Tegra has 40nm technology :)

This is the only point where i respect Apple: power management! But you can't compare an iPhones with Androids...their management, utilization, consumption is very different. Again, i stand corrected, 2020mAh is too less for this device.

30. No_Nonsense unregistered

Even 2100 mAh battery is stupid. At least 3000 mAh.

That's what i'm saying!!! It makes no sense giving us 2020 or 2100mAh battery with a screen that will eat it up in no time. A bad mismatch.

you do realize that even a 2100 is a huge disappointment right? it's a 1080p screen, it will drain the battery so fast, you won't have enough time to brag about that screen.

I agreed!! If they want to tap the market, they need to go crazy. 4000 mAh battery!! I'm telling you, it would steal some market from Note just bc of its battery size. People don't want "just enough", they want "more than enough". I don't want to have to worry about my battery's level all the time. Let's face it, when we all had the old flip phone, it can last 3 days or more in one charge haha that was awesome
