HTC Butterfly Features Specifications Review – Price in India / US

HTC is simply – one brilliant smartphone maker. They have been making smartphones unlike others since the very beginning, and the sparkle of their awesomeness was seen last year – through their One series smartphones. The HTC One X is rated one of the best Android smartphones of the year, and it still is the best in the HTC Android smartphone device lineup.

And HTC is going to continue to increase this brilliantly featured handsets in this year as well, and this is the Taiwanese company’s first 5’ inch smartphone. Or should we call this a phablet? It was first made as J Butterfly as a Japanese variant, and now making its way to the international market. However, let’s have a sneak peek at HTC Butterfly international version.

HTC Butterfly Features – Appearance & Specifications

The Body

Well, it’s sleek but a little thicker than the HTC One X. The typical HTC designs in a renovated form! It’s lightweight though, but still not so much.


This huge size display indeed deserves to be more emphasized. HTC indeed put a lot money for the development of the display, and the resulting thing is superb! It’s a 5 inch display with 1920×1080 pixels resolution, which indicates a full HD display. The pixel density is a whopping 441 PPI….have you ever seen a phone with this much higher PPI? It just makes the display more crisp and clear! Higher PPI in a smartphone screen, that makes the pixels more tighter in a less space and results a better display than….umm iPhone5 and Galaxy SIII! The display is Corning Gorilla protected to avoid scratch marks.

CPU, GPU, Processor

This Butterfly flies on a 1.5 GHz quad core Krait CPU. HTC didn’t walk in the Tegra 3 way like everyone else, because Tegra 3 is power hungry. But this didn’t stop the butterfly from flying.

And the graphics chip is not Adreno 225, it’s Adreno 320. A new chip by the manufacturer Adreno.  And the 2GB RAM adds smoothness in flying!


The camera is a similar one to the ‘HTC One X’, and it has a large aperture of f/2.2. Pretty large for a camera of a cellphone, this ensures capture of good photos. Video mode is awesome, captures at 1080p, and you get all the functions like One X. The burst shots, the photo capture while recording video….everything!

And the front facing camera is 2.0 megapixels. This camera has a crazy aperture rating, and supports 1080p recording! The second phone after Nokia Lumia 820 with this feature.

Connectivity and Memory Expansion

About Wi-Fi, HTC didn’t clarify anything about having dual band Wi-Fi. But as a 2013 smartphone, it should have the dual band capability. And for the same reason, it supports 4G LTE.

The internal memory is 16GB onboard, and thanks to HTC’s generosity.  They have kept the micro SD card expansion slot.

And yes, the butterfly is equipped with NFC. Why shouldn’t the files fly?
