We've heard mixed reports about international availability of the HTC J Butterfly/Droid DNA beyond Japan and the U.S. (respectively). Today, HTC saw fit to announce some new countries. For starters, the device with the retina-melting display will be coming to China as the HTC Butterfly X920e in mid-December. Additionally, a 3G version of the device simply called the Butterfly will be released in international markets.

The Chinese version of the device will launch on China Unicom for ¥4,799 (roughly USD$770) and will come in three colors: brown, red, and white. It will carry the same specs as the other variants around the world:

  • 1.5GHz Quad-core Snapdragon processor
  • 5" SLCD3 1080p display
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB storage
  • 2020mAh battery

Outside of China, the device will launch internationally simply as the HTC Butterfly. That variant will only carry 3G network compatibility unfortunately. No word yet on pricing or availability. The device page here indicates that the handset will work with GSM networks on the 850/900/1800/1900 bands.

    They've also thankfully added a microSD slot in the international variant, that should make people happy. Good going HTC, finally you saw it fit to add one.

      Also, the screen is ICS, will it have JB? I want this phone but I'm not going to Verizon

    Finally got my hands on one of these and I have to say i'm disappointed The screen is quite nice, but really, it seems noticeably dimmer when placed next to a One X. The power button is in the wrong place too. At least put it in a corner on the top, not top middle, the phone is too big for that.
