The somewhat strangely named HTC J Butterfly has been announced in Japan, showing off its stunning high-res 5-inch display.
The original HTC J launched in Japan earlier this year, with a 4.3-inch qHD display, and the J Butterfly builds on this considerably, with an impressive Super LCD 3, 5-inch display with an astounding 1080 x 1920 res, 440ppi density.
That display puts the Retina Display to shame, the iPhone 5 has only a 640 x 1136 at 326ppi display, while its big screened rival, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, may want to go into hiding with its 5.5-inch display at 720 x 1280.
It's not all about the big screen though, the HTC J Butterfly also has impressive specs under the hood, with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor backed up by 2GB of RAM, which will make mincemeat of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS which has been incorporated into the phone.
There's an 8MP camera with1080p video, while the front facing camera is a 2.1MP sensor, and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G support and a microSD slot will keep you connected.
This looks set to be one excellent little phone. Not quite sure when it's going to be arriving in the UK or US... if ever. But as always I will keep you all posted. In the mean-time here is a look at those awesome specs.
