Verizon Leak Shows Stores Preparing For HTC Droid DNA Launch

Over the course of the past week, HTC’s five-inch 1080p Droid DNA has started seeming a whole lot closer to being confirmed, first with the phone getting mentioned by name on a Verizon support page, and later upon the leak of a couple press renders of the handset. The arrival of one of those leaks came with the rumor that the phone might launch in early December. While we wait to hear something a little more specific, a new Verizon leak shows the carrier preparing for the DNA’s arrival.

Here, we can see Verizon using the branding “Droid DNA by HTC”, which may be how the the phone finally launches. It’s interesting to note that, in this document at least, Verizon isn’t playing-up the phone’s 1080p screen, referring to it only as an HD display; considering how that’s got the potential to draw a lot of attention to the phone, we’d expect to see a more explicit mention of its resolution, or something like “full HD” to make it distinct from all the other phones with 720p HD displays.

An earlier Verizon leak listed the Droid DNA with minimum advertised pricing data beginning on November 20. That’s a bit earlier than the December launch that’s been rumored since, but MAP dates need not always directly correspond to a phone’s retail availability. For now, we’ll need more confirmation either way, but today’s leak certainly makes it seem like the phone’s launch is right around the corner.
