Taiwanese tech giant HTC recently released two of the most powerful devices of 2015: the flagship HTC One M9 and the bigger sibling HTC One M9+. However, there’s now a new device from HTC that combines the best features of both models. It's called HTC J Butterfly.

The HTC J Butterfly is now available in Japan. It carries model number HTV31, KDDI says. The device reportedly comes with a plastic chassis instead of the metal unibody exterior seen in the HTC One M9 devices. But it features a dust- and waterproof body, unlike many high-end devices manufactured and released by HTC.

The HTC J Butterfly features a 5.2-inch display and a Quad HD screen resolution. This display combination boils down to a killer pixel density of 565 ppi. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC and is backed by 3 GB of RAM. When it comes to camera specification, the handset sports an impressive 20 MP Duo sensor unit. In addition, there is also an ultra-gracious 13 MP front-facing unit for capturing incredible selfies and video chats. Notably, the other HTC device to feature such a huge secondary camera is last year’s HTC Desire Eye, notes Phone Arena.

As for memory, the device comes equipped with 32 GB of in-built storage space, with a microSD card slot for further expansion. On the software end, the phone runs on the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system straight out of the box, along with HTC's own Sense 7 UI on top of it. In addition to the standard connectivity options, the HTC J Butterfly also supports 4G LTE and NFC. Lastly, the entire configuration is powered by a modest 2,700 mAh battery unit. In any case, readers should note that HTC has not given out any information to ascertain the availability of the J Butterfly handset outside Japan at this point.
