KDDI and Okinawa Cellular will offer the latest HTC J Butterfly in Japan. The new HTC J Butterfly features specs closely similar to the international released HTC One(M8) with a few specific features designed exclusively for the Japanese market. On the outside you’ll find a flagship signature profile with HTC’s dual-speaker grills, the beautiful 5-inch display and the familiar dual cameras on the back along with two LED flash.

The new J Butterfly meets the IPX7 waterproof standard making it one of the first new smartphones from HTC to feature a waterproof design. Being exclusive in Japan means the new J Butterfly is  in full compatibility with Japan’s Advanced-LTE network as well as WiMax 2+ with a possible downstream speed of 110 Mbps.

One celebrated feature that would set the J Butterfly from the One is its camera, both devices may have the same dual camera setup in which the One(M8) features a 4 Megapixel Ultrapixel dual camera but on the JButterfly however, HTC boosts the imaging features with a 13 Megapixel and 2 Megapixel lenses to give an image depth perception. On the front is also a high-resolution camera featuring a 5 Megapixel sensor more than enough for video calls but an advantage for self portraits and front capture images.

The new J Butterfly will have the Boomsound technology that’s been around lately with new HTC devices and an accompanying JBL high-performance earphones to complete the mobile music experience.


Under the hood, the HTC J Butterfly almost has the same feature set as the One(M8) which includes the same 5-inch full-HD display, Snapdragon 801, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB storage and supports microSD cards and HTC’s dot view cases.

The HTC J Butterfly will launched exclusively in Japan with the company holding an unveiling event this coming August 149 2014, but we’ve hope that it would somehow release an international model of the same device even if it would carry a different marketing label as long as the specs are in place.
