HTC have been a little lax lately but since the announcement of the Butterfly J with its stunning 5-inch 1080p display looks like the company is turning around. Unfortunately, the device was only announced for Japan and whilst we’ve heard word of the device coming to Verizon as the Droid DNA we’ve not heard anything concrete. With this being a busy season for device launches from all the carriers and manufacturers it looks like HTC could be bringing some great stuff our way soon.
Another device has recently broken out under the name of “Operaul” which is something that we haven’t seen before and whilst there’s not a lot known about it there has been some information come out of a benchmark on NenaMark. As we all know, NenaMark is where a lot of these upcoming phones end up during the run up to their launch. This latest device from HTC has been benchmarked with an HD 1280×720 screen resolution and thanks to NenaMark listing the 1.4Ghz clock speed as well as the Adreno 305 GPU we can tell that the device will be using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Plus SoC.
The S4 Plus line of chips is something that Qualcomm have confirmed will be at the heart of Windows Phone 8 devices and it’s interesting to see HTC bring this chip into play on Android. Only packing Adreno 305 instead of the more powerful 320 found in the S4 Pro would suggest that this could well be another budget offering from HTC. The S4 Plus, like the S4 Pro features the Krait CPU in quad-core and also supports LTE so this could be another phone packing LTE.
Whatever the device is or turns out to be, we’ll be sure to have more information as soon as we get it!
