HTC Butterfly 5-inch Android Phone Launched in India – Specs, Pricing


The 5-inch Flagship Android phone from HTC which has got different names in the International market was first named the HTC J Butterfly and it was first seen in Japan, and then the company came up with the HTC Droid DNA for the US market through the Verizon network before unveiling the HTC Deluxe in the International market (which was still in the rumors), but in India it has got the name HTC Butterfly, and it comes with a pricing of Rs. 45990 which is a pretty high pricing when compared to the other high-end devices in the current market of Android devices.

The HTC Butterfly has got a 5-inch Full HD screen with the 1080p resolution at 1920 x 1080 pixels. The whooping 5-inch screen provides the maximum resolution with the best graphics and color output and this was one of the first 1080p devices to come out in the market, now competing the Sony Xperia Z, the Oppo Find 5 and the other 1080p devices. Internally, there’s some strong stuff like the Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocking at 1.5GHz speed with a support of 2GB of RAM. The Super LCD3 display has a Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection, similar to the one in the Lumia 920 from Nokia, and the device comes with the the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system powered by the HTC Sense user interface.
On the rear side, HTC has included an 8 megapixel autofocus camera with the 28mm lens with the BSI sensor, and there is an LED flash. Both the cameras, i.e. the 8-megapixel rear one and the 2.1 megapixel front camera support 1080p Full HD video recording, and the rear camera has a lot more features. The HTC Butterfly comes with the Internal storage of 16GB and it supports 32GB more through the MicroSD card.
Connectivity in the Butterfly includes 3G, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, HDMI via MHL, GPS + GLONASS. The battery of the device is 2020 mAh which could be one of the factors to think about, because it could be easily drained by the 1080p display and the heavy processor. Concerning the Indian market, the price tag is quite high as there would not be many takers above the 35k price range in India, while the device has a price similar to the Apple iPhone 5.
Here are the specifications of the HTC Butterfly:
  • 5-inch Super LCD3 Display
  • Screen Resolution – 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • Processor – 1.5GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon
  • RAM – 2GB
  • Storage – 16GB, Expandable by 32GB using MicroSD card
  • Connectivity – 3G, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, HDMI via MHL, GPS + GLONASS
  • Rear camera – 8-megapixel with Autofocus, 1080p video recording
  • Front camera – 2.1 megapixel with 1080p video recording
  • Battery – 2020 mAh
We’d hope to see the price reduced from this mark, but not as of now because the actual price of the HTC Butterfly from the company is Rs. 49900, but the best buy price MOP is Rs. 45900 so that would stick for the time being.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d

Xarius: Charge Your Mobile From Air

Xarius is a portable energy generator that allows to charge electrical appliances by the use of windpower in areas without electricity.

It is composed of a foldable three-wing-system and an internal energy generator. The integrated rope makes it easy to adapt to any environment.Hooks are attached to both of its ends to tighten the rope and open the wings at the same time using the resulting tension. For convenient charging the battery is permanently installed, so that the electrical device can be charged inside the tent. The LED on the hook shows the current charge of battery. The pulsating orange indicates that the wind turbine has to recharge. Even at low wind speeds the blades begin to rotate autonomously.
