Today HTC finally announced what we’ve all been waiting to hear from them. That being their new 5-inch 1920 x 1080p full HD phablet smartphone over in Japan as the HTC J Butterfly. The name is quite odd but the phone and its hardware specs are beautiful. Below we have the HTC’s “First Look” video showing off the smartphone.

We’ll be getting our own hands-on with HTC’s newest powerhouse smartphone soon, but for now this quick video straight from HTC themselves should hold you over. Below is HTC’s First Look commercial showing the beauty and power that is behind their new 5-inch full 1080p HD smartphone in all its glory. Take a peek below.

Just like the multiple rumors around this impressive new smartphone/phablet hybrid, the specs are mightily impressive. You’ll be getting a 5-inch 1920 x 1080p (440ppi) full HD SLCD 3 display (which should be amazing) Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor at 1.5 GHz, 2GB of RAM, different storage options, Beats Audio, and an 8 megapixel rear camera with HTC’s imagesense and imagechip. The only underwhelming spec that I hope gets changed by the time this arrives stateside is the tiny 2,020 mAh battery under the hood.

We’ve heard multiple leaks regarding this outright impressive sounding smartphone. Many are suggesting it will arrive as the one of many Google Nexus smartphones this holiday season as the Nexus 5, it has also leaked as the DROID Incredible X for Verizon with 4G LTE — which I would buy immediately.

For now this device is exclusively launching on KDDI in Japan as we mentioned earlier this morning, but rest assured this will be headed to the US very soon. We have a feeling it will launch on more than just Verizon this holiday season. Who wants this new phablet from HTC?
