HTC has officially unveiled the GSM version of its first smartphone with a full HD display for the European and Asian markets. The HTC Butterfly boasts of a 5-inch screen with a 1080p resolution that results in an amazing 440ppi pixel density. The device also features a powerful quad-core Qualcomm processor, an 8MP rear camera that can take low light images, and a front camera that captures HD video.

The only certain thing is that the Butterfly will be released in China in mid-December and will cost 4,799 yuan ($771) without contract.
The Butterfly is equipped with a 8MP camera with a 28mm lens and F2.0 aperture which will help the BSI enabled sensor to take even better low light images
It started in Japan with the launch of the HTC J Butterfly before heading to the US as the Droid DNA, however there are still plenty of countries yet to get the phone, including the UK.
It near-enough matches the specifications of those other two devices, with its 5-inch full HD 1,920 x 1080 resolution display that is based on Corning Gorilla Glass 2.
