Early this month, HTC unveiled HTC J Butterfly, which is currently available only in Japan and is rumored to be making its way to Verizon Wireless in the US.

We should expect to see it anytime. It may not have the same name but it is definitely coming. The new HTC device is expected to battle head one with other smartphones in the market such as Nokia Lumia 920.

Last September, Nokia also announced its flagship phone - Nokia Lumia 920. The smartphone runs on Windows Phone 8. It also boasts some amazing features such as PureMotion HD+ screen display, great camera and wireless battery. Below is the comparison of the two devices based on some of their specs and features:

Screen Display - The HTC J Butterfly has a 5 inch Super LCD3 with 440ppi full HD display compared to Nokia Lumia 920's 4.5 PureMotion HD+ screen display with 1280x768 pixel resolution, which gives you sharp and vivid colors.

Processor - HTC J Butterfly comes with Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz quad core processor with 2GB of RAM. Nokia Lumia 920 has a dual core processor and 1GB of RAM.

Storage - HTC J Butterfly has 16GB of internal storage plus a microSD slot for expandable storage. Nokia Lumia 920 comes with 32GB of internal storage.

Operating System - The HTC J Butterfly comes with Android's latest Jelly Bean OS. Nokia Lumia 920 comes with Windows Phone 8.

4G/LTE - Both smartphones are capable to connect to the fastest connection or 4G connection.

Camera - HTC J Butterfly comes with 8-megapixel camera. Nokia Lumia 920 also comes with 8.7MP camera but it is far greater because of the PureView technology that Nokia devised.

Battery - HTC J Butterfly will be powered 2020 mAh against Nokia Lumia 920's 2000mAh battery.

However, it is important to note HTC J Butterfly is supported by Android that offers Google Play Store, which has a wide array of apps. The Nokia Lumia 920, on the other hand, has Windows Phone 8 and this offers home screen tiles, which can be customized and provide updates in real time. The handset also has Nokia maps and Office.

Thus, the choice lies to the consumer whether they prefer a fast Android smartphone with expandable storage or a Windows Phone 8 smartphone with great screen display and camera.
