New HTC J Butterfly launched, is a waterproof One M8

Japanese telecom carrier KDDI launches the new HTC J Butterfly in Japan. It is basically a One M8 but with new and improved specs and features. Head past the break for more details.


HTC J Butterfly specs:
5-inch Full HD Super LCD 3 @ 1920 x 1080 resolution, 441ppi
Corning Gorilla Glass
Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.45GHz quad-core processor
Adreno 330 GPU
32GB internal storage (expandable via microSD)
13MP rear camera with secondary depth sensor
5MP front camera
Support for Dot View Case
Android 4.4 KitKat

As you may have notied, the One M8’s original 4MP Ultrapixel camera gets revamped to a 13MP sensor but with the same secondary camera for depth of field shots. HTC also opted to give up on its BoomSound speakers to make it waterproof, so the company is giving a free JBL in-ear headset along with the package.

We’re still waiting for the announcement if it will be available outside Japan. But with the availability of its lineup locally there’s a big chance we’ll be seeing this new Butterfly emerge out of its cocoon in no time.

    Kevin, although the internals are similar to One M8, this is actually a successor of the not so popular Butterfly series (Butterfly and Butterfly S). It doesn’t even have a physical resemblance to One.

    The big question is the LTE radio compatible with local LTE frequencies…
