HTC And Verizon Announce 1080p Droid DNA

HTC’s Droid DNA has been one of the worst-kept secrets in recent memory; if all the leaked pics of the phone weren’t enough to convince us that it was soon to land at Verizon, the two separate incidents where Verizon unintentionally confirmed the phone on its public websites should have manged to remove any trace of doubt. As a result, when HTC and Verizon sent out invitations last week for a press event this morning, news of the Droid DNA seemed nearly guaranteed. Sure enough, the two companies have gone forward and officially announced the Droid DNA.

The five-inch 1080p Android is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, has 2GB of RAM, and arrives running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. As is currently becoming vogue, the Droid DNA will support wireless charging. Like HTC’s Windows Phone 8X, the Droid DNA will use a wide-angle lens for its front facing camera.

We had heard rumors of a release around November 20, and while that doesn’t quite hit the mark, it’s not too far removed from the phone’s actual arrival, now confirmed for November 21. The Droid DNA will go for just about $200 on-contract. Pre-sales begin today.
