HTC unveils its best smartphone yet, but only in Japan

HTC J Butterfly

HTC has been having a very tough time since recently, with reports suggesting a falter in its revenues last month. This can be blamed on the One M9 smartphone, which failed to excite the market in the midst of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.

The company has now launched a new smartphone called the J Butterfly with the hope of pleasing some consumers. We emphasize on the word ‘some’ because this handset is an exclusive to the Japanese market for the time being. We’re guessing this is part of a deal between the company and display manufacturer Sharp, which is responsible for the display panels used by HTC.

This is the third J Butterfly phone to launch in Japan, so this is nothing new to the market. We just fail to see why HTC launched a relatively dated hardware with the One M9 while it launched devices like the One M9+, One E9+ etc shortly after.

But for those interested in snatching up the new J Butterfly, it comes with a 5.2 inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 20-megapixel camera on the back, a 13-megapixel front camera, a 2,700 mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
