HTC’s Butterfly, the droid with the 5″ 1080p screen, started off in Japan, moved to the US and has now finally gone international. It keeps the same cool specs as the country-specific versions, including the high-res S-LCD3 and the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset.
But instead of telling you about it, it’s easier to show it with this video ad for the HTC Butterfly.
See? HTC is living up to its “Quietly brilliant” slogan and subtly tells you about the Butterfly’s burst shot capabilities, wireless TV out and face recognition. The ad also shows the phone is splash resistant, which is true for the Japanese version (the J Butterfly), but the specs of the international version make no mention of this.
The HTC J Butterfly, world first 5-inch 1080p Full HD display-packing, has now a promo video, this monster of a smartphone is exclusive for the Japanese carrier AU/KDDI for the time being.
The ad focus on the 1080p display in question, Here goes the video itself.

The HTC J Butterfly has : 5.0-inch, Super LCD3 display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, which gives it a pixel density of the astonishing 440 ppi. The display is quite big but at 143 x 71 x 9.1 mm, the J butterfly is only slightly bigger than the One X (134.4 x 69.9 x 8.9 mm) and at 140g weighs just 10g more.

KDDI offers an Android application that allows you to use the palm of your hand as a recognition tool for unlocking the device.
KDDI’s booth was rather uneventful this year and has not much to show, unless maybe this very cool new palm authentication app for Smartphones. Unlike Fujitsu Palm Reader technology, KDDI’s palm authentication app will actually read your “palm” and take a picture of your palm and its lines and memorised it for future use.
Thanks to today’s Hi-resolution sensors, Cameras embedded on smartphones can take pretty accurate details of objects and in our case every details of your palm lines. Once the picture taken of your memorised hand you will be able to unlock your phone by simply scanning once more your hand with your phone camera.
KDDI has unveiled the new palm authentication app that takes advantage of the high-resolution camera on its Android smartphones. Scanning in tandem with the flash, that has being demonstrated on a HTC J, here at CEATEC 2012 in Japan.
