Yes and no. The Butterfly HTC posted to their worldwide site is quad-band GSM with 850/2100 HSPA which means the specs are for a phone that would work in China. But the Qualcomm radio (sames as in the OG and N4) is penta-band capable so activating the additional bands is just a matter of s/w. It would seem odd for HTC to add the Butterfly to their global site (in English) if they only intended to sell it in China. So it could be sold elsewhere and all they'd have to do is update the radio and specs on their site or it may only be sold in China. I wouldn't go solely off the info provided by various HTC offices in the EU as they've been wrong before.

I don't know what network or device you've used on HSPA but I typically get 5-7MB down.

It's a sure thing that the additional bands could be activated?

Or did they actually change the modem? I'm sorry if I said it wrongly, new here =x

Default Seems odd...

Since It says Dual-Band 3G I think it's not meant for Europe. I think htc will release a real global/European version at MWC 2013 in Februari like they always do. They still have 2+ months so maybe we'll see sd-card slot, wireless charging, better battery and water-proof And if we are really lucky we might see a tegra 4 (probably not but I still hope so ).

Default Didn't we already know this??

When TheVerge covered the J Butterfly for the first time, didn't they mention that battery and microSD card slot? What's the surprise?

So let's look at what we have now.
Droid DNA without microSD but has wireless charging.
J Butterfly with microSD but no wireless charging for Japan
Butterfly without microSD and no wireless charging for China (X920e)

and now we have another butterfly which has a microSD slot but no wireless charging and this one is most likely the international version. (X920d)
Also there is difference of NFC.
Butterfly doesnt have it.
