Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:46 CET under 04 - Android News

We have already heard about the HTC J Butterfly/the Droid DNA and as expected, it seems that the J aka DNA will also arrive to the rest of the world as the HTC Butterfly. HTC just put the official specs on its international website and according to these, the Butterfly will feature a Qualcomm S4 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU and runs on some kind of Android with HTC Sense. It's said to support quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSPA at 850/2100 MHz which means that this version of the Butterfly isn't optimized for Europe which could mean that the European bands will be different. LTE is not announced to be supported. However, also on board are Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX and WiFi a/b/g/n as well as support for GPS and Glonass.
