HTC’s latest J Butterfly is a supercharged One M8 in a waterproof body

Japanese carrier KDDI has just announced a new HTC J Butterfly, a handset which resembles the HTC One in specs but with features aimed at its home market. Like a lot of other Japanese devices, the 5-inch, full HD handset is waterproof, for starters, in case you feel like taking fish photos. For that, HTC has brand new cameras: a 13-megapixel rear dual-camera model, with a selfie-friendly 5-megapixel front shooter. That differs from the One M8’s 4-megapixel Duo “Ultrapixel” camera; KDDI instead calls it a “Duo Effect” camera with features like depth-of-field adjustment. Filling out the spec sheet are a Snapdragon 801, 802.11ac WiFi, LTE-Advanced, 150Mbps 4g, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.4 KitKat. All of that sounds pretty nice, but will it come to US shores? Hard to say, but the last J Butterfly model did eventually arrive as the Droid DNA (to Verizon), so we wouldn’t be surprised to see the new model here too.
