If it’s true, then this HTC’s new flagship smartphone with a 5″ 1080p display would become the worlds first five-inch handset and HTC in the other hand working on the device, and caught by The Verge in Tokyo today. It’s called the HTC J Butterfly, and it’s set for a launch this December on AU / KDDI. Retina display, is what Apple considers and the display it deserves for its pixels density is so high that your eye is unable to discern the individual pixels. In fact for a smartphone, Retina means at least 300 pixels per inch and the Retina display posing iPhone 4 / 4S and now the iPhone 5 has 326 pixels per inch.
Just imagine with the HTC’s latest five-inch smartphone that packs with 440p per square inch, featuring the native full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The HTC is reportedly set to create with a new upcoming phone dubbed the J Butterfly already.
It said that the the Butterfly uses the same red and black color scheme and Rhyme-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 with an f/2.0 lens.
Keeping in mind with the increasingly pixel density is becoming a weapon against Apple and this new HTC phone is a typical example. Although, Apple’s Retina display has served as one of the defining hardware features of iPhones since the iPhone 4. Still producing and releasing since 2012 when the iPhone 4 was released officially. But the competition had a big trouble producing a matching display.
Speaking of the new The J Butterfly, that features a five-inch Super LCD 3 display, a successor to the Super LCD 2 screen on the HTC One X. At 440 ppi, vivid color reproduction and the slightly curved edges, this phone sets a new bar in terms of clarity and display quality and a body that’s just 9.1mm thinness and slim bezel make it surprisingly compact, and we found it was easily pocketable.
Most importantly, the HTC J Butterfly with a full HD display like that on the next-gen J Butterfly give you native 1080p video playback without letterboxing or downsampling. Alraedy compared to the HTC’s latest phone display versus the iPhone’s Retina display:
With the J Butterfly’s 2,020mAh battery is above average in capacity and thinking about when Apple produces an 1080p iPhone?
The main reason behind this would be it involves more hardware requirements and battery consumption because a 1080p display has 2.85 times more pixels than the iPhone 5’s 1,136-by-640 display, which requires more powerful GPU to drive the pixel density.
When HTC will announce the 5-inch J Butterfly with a 1080p ability smartphone? We got no idea, but soon we’ll update it here with price details. Via The Verge
