HTC Butterfly Going to India This Month

By Amelia Hunter

The HTC Butterfly is soon going to launch in India and become the most expensive phone on the Indian market, priced at INR 44,000 (which is about $812.56). The smartphone is expected to be announced and launched within the next two weeks, before the end of January.

So what will you get for $813? Is the Butterfly worth it? First of all, it’s the same HTC J Butterfly (or HTC Droid DNA, as it’s known in the US), so it does have a lot of great, high-end features. The first thing that catches everyone’s attention is the 5-inch display with Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, which is better than the display of Samsung’s both Galaxy Notes. It’s also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass so, so it’s scratch-resistant,

The processor is a quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm S4, and with 2GB of RAM, you won’t have any problem with multi-tasking. The Butterfly has total storage of 16GB that can be expanded via a microSD (up to 32GB support). The camera has 8MP lens, auto-focus, LED flash, and a BSI sensor for better low-light shots; the front camera is 2MP. Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, micro-USB 2.0 and a 2,020 mAh battery are also present. As for software, the HTC Butterfly runs Android 4.1 with HTC Sense UI.

So the HTC Butterfly does look great with all those features. But would you pay INR 44,000 / $813 for it?
