Remember that HTC phone with the massive, 5" 1080p display that we've been hearing rumors about? Well, it's here! Where "here" means Japan. The Taiwanese manufacturer has just announced the HTC J Butterfly, the follow up to the previous HTC J model. This phone is packing a positively drool-worthy 1080p SLCD 3 display (you read that right) in a 5" slate. In case you were wondering, that is a retina-destroying 440ppi.

Do you even care about the rest of the specs? Well, I suppose you do, but nothing's going to make you care more about this phone than that display. Here are your appetizers for that delicious entrée, though:

  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB of storage
  • MicroSD card support
  • 8MP rear shooter
  • 2.1MP front camera
  • 2020 mAh battery

This thing is a monster. Unfortunately for most of you English-speakers, this particular unit won't be available outside Japan, though HTC has said that the display will be making the global tour, appearing in phones in around the world. So don't worry, your lust for more pixels than your eyes can physically appreciate will not go unfulfilled.
