HTC Droid DNA with 5″ 1080p screen announced for Verizon, out on November 21 for $199.99
Verizon and HTC finally took the wraps off of the Droid DNA, a phablet that has been rumored and extensively leaked for many weeks now. As we expected it to be, the Droid DNA is basically just the HTC J Butterfly announced in Japan a while ago – repackaged and rebranded for Verizon.
So what will you get if you buy HTC’s first phablet?
A 5-inch 1080p Full HD (1920×1080) Super LCD 3 touchscreen with 440 ppi, a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU (APQ8064), an 8 MP autofocus rear camera with 1080p video capture support and LED flash, a 2.1 MP front-facing camera also with 1080p recording, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of non-expandable storage space (of which 11 GB is user-accessible), 4G LTE, world phone (global roaming) capabilities, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, microSIM, Beats Audio headset and speaker amplifiers, Qi wireless charging support, and a non-removable 2,020 mAh battery.
The Droid DNA is powered by Android 4.1 and HTC Sense 4+.
If you’re dying to get one of these, the good news is that it will be up for pre-order at Verizon today. You’ll find the HTC Droid DNA in stores starting on November 21. It’s going to be priced at $199.99 with the always-required two-year contract.
