http://www.theverge.com/2012/10/17/3515158/htc-shows-off-stunning-5-inch-1080p-j-butterfly-phone-in-japan

HTC has been working on a new flagship phone with a 1080p display, and we got to see it in Tokyo today. It's the HTC J Butterfly, and it's set for a release this December on AU / KDDI. A follow-up to the previous HTC J (http://www.theverge.com/2012/5/15/3021132/htc-j-hands-on-video), the Butterfly uses the same red and black color scheme and Rhyme (http://www.theverge.com/2011/09/20/htc-rhyme-verizon-pictures-video-hands-on-preview/)-inspired skin, though this time it's running on top of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Inside there's a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor, 2GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel camera.

The real attraction, though, is the 5-inch full HD Super LCD 3 screen — it's truly a sight to behold. The Super LCD 2 seen in HTC's previous flagship One X (http://www.theverge.com/products/one-x/5239) was arguably the best panel on the market, but we think its successor is the new champion. Color reproduction is excellent, the 440ppi resolution is astonishing, and the screen's slightly curved edges make the image look like it's melting off the side of the phone. It doesn't feel overbearing in the hands, either; the phone's 9.1mm thinness and slim bezel make it surprisingly compact, and we found it was easily pocketable. The J Butterfly's 2,020mAh battery is above average in capacity, though we're interested to find out how it'll keep up with powering so many pixels throughout the course of a day.

This will be branded as the droid incredible X in America and rumoured to be heading to Verizon.

I love HTC and own a One x, but....

Problem I see with it, the Note 2 already fills this niche for a very big screen phone. The HTC doesn't have a pen, and its software is basically same as its other handsets, no software tailoring to actually put that big screen to use like the Note 2. To me this is the very definition of a 'me too' product that actually misses the point of its competitor.

I prefer HTC design, but the Note 2 is a much more rounded and well devised handset in comparison to this, with vastly more productivity options that Samsung have built into the software, than just having a big screen as HTC seem to have copied.


Also 2,000mah battery in a 1080p screen? I can not imagine HTC have improved its rather lame track record in regards to battery life with the one x series with that. If the phone gets 3 hours of screen on time, I'll be shocked....

You bring up some very valid points. These are the two phones that I was most interested in as a Verizon user.

I think that you are correct wrt battery life. Between the S4 Pro and that 1080p screen, I don't think that the battery is powerful enough. I do like HTC's build quality over Samsung's, but the battery may be the feature that convinces me to get the Note II in this generation. Then, hopefully, the Note III will have the 1080p display and an A15 based quad core processor late next year.

I'm sure certain people will say anything over 300ppi is pointless but that screen looks amazing. Can't wait to see what's available on smartphones this time next year.

Still planning on getting the Note II but on a side note, glad to see there's no hump on the back of that camera..

So the back has "with Google"....

We know this going to be the Droid Incredible X, so not a nexus device.


Can we safely now assume "with google" is going to be branding that comes with all JB devices going forward rather than indicative of being a "nexus" device.

And can we finally kill the multiple nexus device rumours.....

I had another go with the Note 2 the other day and though I love the concept with the S Pen and all, I have to finally admit that I just can't stand the cheap build quality & look of the thing. And the same goes for TouchWiz, so If I'd buy a Note 2 I'd have to root it and go stock JB to make it look and feel acceptable, which would then do away with the nifty S Pen functionality anyway. What's left then is a big screen phone with a light plasticky build - and compared to that, this HTC would honestly be quite a superior alternative.

So I don't see this phone just failing straight up as a competitor to the Note 2. The Note has it's strengths, but so does this one. Superior build quality/design + screen would be enough for many, I think.

If the HTC J Butterfly had at least a 3100mAh battery, I could see this as a being a serious competitor to the Note 2.

Other than that, I love the aesthetic look. HTC knows how to make a eye popping phone.

I just am opposed to an all glossy plastic design. HTC usually has better materials.

In Japan though, I hear they associate glossy plastic with high-end, which is why everything that comes out over there looks like that.

IMHO. This is MUCH better than the Note II. The size seems better, more pocketable and easy to hold and well I don't even have to speak on the screen. Now give the US version a better battery and this is one amazing device.

Ive not heard that, perhaps you are thinking of the lacquered celluloid or resin that is used on pens and the like and is highly sought the world over.

I have one of these hand made pens (Nakaya) it certainly is a luxury item.

As much as I love Apple, and have supported, and will continue to support them. It's a shame that they stick to their modest phone upgrades every year. The iPhone 5 is nice, but this phone looks absolutely incredible. I own an S III, but I'm even considering upgrading next year already. :cool:

Back on topic.

I must admit that I like it. The omission of the smart pen would not be a deal breaker for my use, having compared the HTC 1X to the S3 I found the HTC to feel better made and more substantial (IMHO), I would imagine that this would be the same when comparing this to the Note 2. That screen will be to die for.

Oppo also announced a quadcore smartphone with FULL HD screen

Along with these real photos of the Oppo Find 5 some specification details were also corroborated including the 5 inch display with 1920 X 1080 resolution, 2GB RAM, quad-core Qualcomm 8064 CPU and impressive 12 mega-pixel rear camera!
Back to the design of the Oppo Find 5 which in my mind looks like it has taken some styling tips from the current range of Nokia and Sony phones which together has created one of the best looking and possibly most sort after Chinese phones of 2012!

Not so much, the thunderbolt and Incredible have both suffered. Looks like most cdma devices get the short end of the stick. That's why I'm hoping there's a GSM version ready for AT&Ts network.

It has a MicroSD slot plus its water proof.

The battery is supposedly very adequate. Like I said, its a little less than the optimus G and that easily lasts a little more than a day ( so it said it the review ). the S4 processor is very power efficient. Think this is also a lower powered screen ... ??

It really is. I have a Droid Incredible and 2+ years later the dev community is still strong. I have a stable version of ICS running right now.

Part of the reason why I love Android so much is because of the community, I get bored with phones too easily. But trying out different ROMS is like getting a new phone with each flash. I love it

I thought this was a good article. According to this Dr. there are no benefits as far as screen sharpness to 1080P but there will be a benefit to the extra pixels. For example you will see more of a web page or an email because of the added pixels.

This is tempting. But the thought of me signing a 2 year contract and being super late to get next versions of android is bothering me.

Like it has been said, if this was a Nexus with no contract, stock android, fast updates and on screen buttons I would love it. Who knows maybe Google will surpise us in 8 days

Edit: a little concerned about size too but in the Engadget video he slipped it into his pocket easily.

I really wonder how well the SoC will be able to handle over 2 million pixels. Don't get me wrong, more pixels is always nice, but that is over twice as much as what 720p displays have. The UI does look fairly smooth in the videos but I wonder how e.g. web browsing with ads works or other heavier content.

I'm really liking HTC's design aesthetic since the One X

So am I, would really buy the One X+ if it wasn't so overpriced in here (Galaxy S3 is 150€ cheaper).

I really wonder how well the SoC will be able to handle over 2 million pixels. Don't get me wrong, more pixels is always nice, but that is over twice as much as what 720p displays have. The UI does look fairly smooth in the videos but I wonder how e.g. web browsing with ads works or other heavier content.



So am I, would really buy the One X+ if it wasn't so overpriced in here (Galaxy S3 is 150€ cheaper).

the gfx on the S4 Pro quad core (adreno 320) has roughly twice the power of the tegra 3 quad core. Should be ok.

the USA version of this phone is the HTC DLX and comes with 2500mh battery
