HTC Butterfly has been selling in China for about a month, but only in black and red color. Finally, the white version HTC Butterfly is ready to be reserved for buyers in the country, which began via the Chinese online retailer 51buy.com yesterday and it has already received over 400,000 orders. It will officially go on sales on the 24th, right before the Chinese New Year, which is available at the same price as the red and black version at ¥4,799 (US$774) without contract. It is cheaper than the Japan version (around US$844), but more expensive than the US version (around US$600). To make things clear, we have a short summary of the difference between J Butterfly, Butterfly and Droid DNA after the break.
“HTC J Butterfly” is a model that’s exclusive to Japan, “HTC Butterfly” is the international version of it and “HTC Droid DNA” is the Verizon version of the handset. In China, there’s another version called HTC X920e, and that’s slated for release with China Unicom on WCDMA network. The difference between J Butterfly, Butterfly and Droid DNA are:
HTC DROID DNA:
Micro SD card slot — NO Waterproof display — NO LTE — YES (but only 700 MHZ) Wireless charge — YES
HTC J Butterfly:
Micro SD card slot — YES Waterproof display — YES LTE — YES (Full LTE) Wireless charge — YES
Micro SD card slot — YES Waterproof display — YES LTE — NO Wireless charge — NO
According to the specs sheet showed on 51buy.com, the Chinese version Butterfly X920e is similar to the international version, but it lacks a micro SD card slot.
One last thing, HTC will offer a special Bluetooth device along with the sales of the handset called HTC mini, an accessory that is exclusive to China’s market. HTC Mini is very similar to your television remote control, it is a portable device that connects to your HTC Butterfly via Bluetooth or NFC, meaning you could do all sorts of things on HTC Mini to control your Butterfly phone including making phone calls, text messages, capture photos and play musics. HTC Mini also has a feature that is similar to Apple’s “Find Your iPhone”, where users just simply have to use the Mini to ring its phone. Quite awesome!
