HTC Butterfly in stores in Australia, still expected to Europe!

Without making any official announcement in the first week of December HTC added HTC Butterfly to its global website and the smartphone was taken as the global version of HTC J Butterfly, having very similar technical specifications.

HTC Butterfly is the first smartphone in the world with 5 inch full-HD display, which will be available internationally and it is now available for purchase in Australia! HTC Butterfly is the global version of HTC J Butterfly, released in Japan two months ago an also in US as HTC Droid DNA.

The SIM-free device is coming unlocked and it is now available in Australia. It will start shipping on January 18 exclusively to MobiCity, being sold for AUD849, which converts to $891. We can take this price as a rough estimation on how much the X920e Butterfly would cost for Europe, when available.

HTC Butterfly has been first launched in his homeland Taiwan.

“We are confident that HTC Butterfly will set a new example for high-end smartphones,” is what HTC’s chief executive Peter Chou declared at the launch event in Taipei. According to the beginning of 2013 HTC financial reports, the Butterfly smartphone series is selling fairly well in Japan.

As we know HTC is concentrating its efforts on gaining market share on the Asian smartphone markets as its position in US had a lot to suffer from the struggling battle with Apple.

Beginning with middle of December HTC Butterfly is also available in China. The Butterfly is listed at a price of 4,799-Yuan off-contract, that means not affordable, but not very bad $762 converted.

Statistic in January 2013 shows that HTC sold 2.8 million smartphones in the third quarter, in China. This number is about 5.8% of China’s smartphone market, and it is more than Apple sold there in the same period.

HTC Butterfly is impressive with its industry leading 5-inch Super LCD 3 screen, with Gorilla Glass 2, at 440-ppi pixel density and full 1080P HD resolution, compared to iPhone 5 with 4-inch screen at 326 ppi at lower 1136×640 resolution and Samsung Galaxy Note II having a massive 5.5-inch Super HD AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels of resolution and 267 PPI.

The processor is Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 SoC with a quad-core 1.5GHz Krait CPU and Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM. We have 16GB internal memory with possibility of extension by microSD card slot. The smartphone sports a 8 megapixel rear camera with 1080p video recording and 2.1 megapixel front facing camera. Connectivity is covered with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS + GLONASS, NFC.
