The au Infobar A02 smartphone from HTC sports a 4.7-inch CG Silicon TFT 720p display. The handset is both waterproof (IPX 5 and IPX 7) and dust resistant. What's more, unlike the water- and dust-proof Sony Xperia Z, which does not pack in infrared, HTC's Japanese offering has IR capabilities. The au Infobar A02 is just 9.7mm thick and weighs 147gms.

The NFC-enabled HTC smartphone houses a powerful 1.5GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 processor. The HTC au Infobar A02 also has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2.1-megapixel secondary camera, 1GB of RAM, HTC ImageSense, 16GB of on-board storage with microSD support, and a 2100mAh battery.

The smartphone also offers LTE, CDMA2000, and WDCMA support. The phone will come pre-loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with iida UI 2.0 interface on top.

The HTC au Infobar A02 will retail in three avatars: Nishikigoi (red), ICE Gray (gray), and Aoao (blue). HTC is yet to reveal the pricing details, but the smartphone will hit Japanese shelves by mid-February and will be available on carrier KDDI.
