HTC J Butterfly Launched in Australia for AUD849




The International and unlocked model of the latest HTC J Butterfly or known as Droid DNA for US market, is now available in Australia under the name HTC X920e Butterfly.

As the time of writing, the unlocked SIM free version of the device is offered exclusively by online phone retailer MobiCity and is on sale for AUD849 and Shipping of this exceptional smartphone is scheduled to begin on January 18th. Although not yet available in Europe, the Australian market pricing of the J Butterfly give us the rough idea of how the phone would cost when the phone eventually launch there. 

The HTC Butterfly come with a 5-inch Full-HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, Super LCD 3 with Gorilla Glass 2, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 SoC with a quad-core 1.5HGz Krait CPU and Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM plus the 16GB of internal storage and of course there is the microSD expansion slot. 

The smartphone also boast a 8-megapixel cameras with 1080p video recording capabilities and 2.1 megapixel front camera with both of the camera equipped with a dedicated HTC ImageChip technology and offer one-click continuous photography. Connectivity wise, the HTC Butterfly come with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS + GLONASS, NFC.

The Device is still awaited it official launch to European territory, as HTC has reportedly struggled to keep up with the production due to the very high demand for the phone. 

On the other hand, HTC just released their early Q4 earning result and the news is not that encouraging for the Taiwanese based manufacturer. The revenue stats for HTC continue to fall and in the last quarter of 2012 they received $34 million (NT$1 billion) net income before taxes. HTC produced a 2.1 billion (NT$60 billion) revenue in Q4 of 2012 which is a big 41% drop from the last year’s numbers.

  1. Got my 920 on Friday then headed off on a small weekend vacation where I got to play with my new phone quite a bit. Overall I love it- HOWEVER- I’m majorly disappointed with the camera. I don’t know if I just got a buggy phone or what, but the images are horrible compared to my iphone (which I gave up for this phone). I do professional photography and because of that I’m probably pickier than most, but my biggest gripes come from the comparison of what I’m getting from this phone vs the iphone. The compression seems extreme and the white balance is a mess on most my photos.
    I discussed my problem with some other sites also but still didn’t get any suggestion. Anyone else disappointed with the images they are getting from the 920? Or any suggestions for me that what should I do???
