Combining features from both the HTC One M9 and its spinoff, the One M9+, HTC’s newest device is certainly the most potent powerhouse of a smartphone the company has ever come up with – the HTC J Butterfly (HTV31). The handset will be exclusively sold by one of Japan’s major carriers.
For starters, it’s does not come with a metal unibody, but a plastic one. Nevertheless, it comes with a feature that very few HTC phones have: it’s a handset that is both dust- and water-proof.
The remainder of the specs sheet tells us that the HTC J Butterfly is also endowed with a microSD card slot, 32GB of native storage, a 2,700mAh battery at the back, and Android 5.0 Lollipop right out of the box, with HTC’s Sense 7 UI running atop. The phone supports LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, and NFC.
The latter did not officially venture on any other market than the Japanese one, so we are quite pessimistic that the new refreshed version of the J Butterfly will do so.
