Combine the HTC One M9 and One M9+, and what do you get? The HTC J Butterfly.
The HTC One M9 has existed for only a couple of months, but here we are (again) with a new smartphone that’s superior in many ways to HTC’s supposed flagship device for this year. The display, for instance, measures 5.2 inches and comes with a Quad HD (1440×2560) resolution in the J Butterfly, whereas the One M9 only has a Full HD (1080×1920) 5-inch display.
HTC’s smartphones may not be known for their cameras, but the J Butterfly boasts a 20.2-megapixel Duo camera and a 13-megapixel front shooter (vs the M9’s 20MP main camera and Ultrapixel front camera). The only downside to the HTC J Butterfly over the M9 is its use of plastic material instead of metal for its body.
The rest of the J Butterfly’s specs consist of the Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, BoomSound speakers, and 2700mAh battery.
For HTC fans looking for a significant upgrade to their aging One M8 smartphones, skip the M9 and try to get the J Butterfly instead (or at least the M9+). But the handset seems to be limited to the Japanese market, though, since there’s no official announcement yet for global availability. It’ll probably be called the Butterfly 3 if ever it reaches international markets.
