HTC J Butterfly

Japanese mobile operator KDDI today announced a new Android device for the region, the HTC J Butterfly. It is essentially a localized version of the HTC One M8 with regards to specifications, but the second generation Butterfly comes packing some interesting features targeting local consumers.

The 5-inch HTC smartphone is waterproof and can shoot some serious photos with 13 MP rear and 5 MP front-facing cameras to boot. It's a positive move from the HTC One M8's 4 MP "Ultrapixel" setup. The Snapdragon 801 is joined by 802.11ac Wi-Fi, LTE, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.4 and a Dot View case. The HTC J Butterfly is scheduled to be unveiled at HTC Conference Tokyo 2014 held August 19, 2014 and will be available by the end of August. There's no word on international availability.
