Last week HTC announced the J Butterfly, their first smartphone with a 1080p display, but it was limited to the Japanese market. We mentioned that a similar device with a 1080p display was already in testing at Verizon, and now the first pictures of the phone have been released. The guys from Android Central were able to obtain a couple shots of the rumored HTC DLX in the wild and confirmed it should launch around Thanksgiving.
It appears both of the devices are very similar in the specs department, but the Verizon-bound HTC DLX features the outer stylings of HTC’s One series. The one noticeable spec difference is that Verizon’s version is rumored to include a larger 2500 mAh battery, compared to the 2020 mAh battery found in the Japanese version.
Rumored specs of the HTC DLX include:
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+
- 5-inch Super LCD 3 display 1920 x 1080 (440 pixels per inch)
- 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro + MDM9615 modem
- 16GB of storage, 2GB RAM
- 8 megapixel camera with a f/2.0 lens, 2.1 megapixel front camera
- 2500 mAh battery
- Beats Audio
- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC
- LTE support
Overall, this looks like a pretty exciting release for Verizon fans. It has almost every high-end spec you could hope for, and it could be their best smartphone this holiday season. Hit up the source link for a couple extra pictures and let us know if you plan on buying this device.
