It’s official: HTC and Verizon will be releasing their super sized smartphone, the DROID DNA, on November 21st both in stores as well as online for $200 on a 2 year commitment. For those interested in guaranteeing one can pre-order a device starting today. The Droid DNA, is essentially Verizon’s variant of HTC’s J Butterfly released in Japan a few weeks ago.
The DROID DNA has been well known for some time already in part to its 5-inch 1080p Super LCD3 display (440ppi), however, there are other great specs for this phone that make it a solid contender in the high end smartphone market. The device features a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, Jelly Bean and HTC’s Sense 4+ UI, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX support, NFC, MHL, dual mics for noise cancelation and WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n (dual-band). The new handset also features an 8MP f/2.0 rear camera with 28mm wide angle lens, BSI sensor, ImageChip and 1080p HD video capture. On the opposite side of the phone the phone sports a 2.1MP f/2.0 front-facing cam that features 1080p HD video record and an 88-degree ultra-wide angle lens. From a power supply stand point, the device will come with a 2,020mAh battery and it’ll have Qi-compatible wireless charging as well. Lastly the phone will come with 16GB of internal storage and disappointingly no microSD slot.
