The HTC has announced its mammoth sized HTC Droid DNA smartphone that features with a monstrous 5-inch screen with 1080p display and its LTE supported. Surprisingly we now know when it is going to be made available and what is will be marketed with. What with it basically being a Japanese J Butterfly – a phone that went on sale a few weeks ago. Still, it’s all official now, so let’s take a look.
Finally, the secret has been opened, now HTC and Verizon has officially made their king-sized smartphone official at today’s press event: the Droid DNA, as mentioned, is essentially Big Red’s variant of the J Butterfly released in Japan a couple of weeks ago, will be offered in stores and online pre-ordering the day before Thanksgiving for $200 with a two year contract commitment. Interested ones can pre-order their DNA unit today right from here.
The availability of buying it and getting in on the DNA action can pre-order their handset, with that you will get a 5-inch Android phone running Jelly Bean and HTC’s own Sense 4+ UI pasted on top. DNA is already well known in mobile circles thanks to its 5″ 1080p Super LCD3 display (which comes out to 440ppi), which particularly tempts purchase for the holiday season. In addition its integrated with the power of 1.5GHz quad-core Quaclcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (APQ8064 paired with MDM9615m, to be specific) and 2GB of RAM.
Camera-wise, poses with an 8-megapixel snapper on the rear, complete with a 28mm wide angle lens, BSI sensor, ImageChip and 1080p video recording. Up on the front which the opposite side of the phone you can expect to see a 2.1MP f/2.0 front-facing cam that features 1080p HD video record and an 88-degree ultra-wide angle lens. Awesome gestures!
Interestingly, all of the spiffy specs will rely on an embedded 2,020mAh battery for its power supply, but it’ll have Qi-compatible wireless charging to help out when it’s getting low.
The most advanced and phone’s biggest selling point and post interesting specification is that 5-inch, 1080p display. The DNA takes advantage of Beats Audio and a 2.55v built-in headset amplifier and dedicated rear speaker amp, and however it comes with 16GB internal storage and no microSD slot. The smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S III’s 4.8-inch display is just about on the edge for us, but this Droid DNA looks like it’s going to be a very impressive phone, at least as far as the specs sheet goes.
Here’s the actual point, the DNA offers Verizon LTE, quad-band GSM and UMTS (no idea whether it’s global roaming is enabled), Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX support, NFC, MHL, dual mics for noise reduction and WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n (dual band).
Expected competition with LCD3 screen of HTC Droid DNA to produce even better screens moving forward, too. That’s why it’s inevitable one!
