After the HTC J Butterly in Japan, and the recently HTC Droid DNA in the US for Verizon, It’s turn for the global version to pop out, and its the @evleaks who tells us that this is the HTC Deluxe “it’s the global name according to it” that in the meantime, you saw on the first official picture of the latter above. No date revealed for the moment, but we should know more early next year normally.
Specifications side, nothing should change, this smartphone will carry a particular 5-Inch touchscreen Super LCD 3 with a full-HD 1080p resolution (1920 × 1080 pixels, 440ppi), a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor APQ8064 clocked at 1.5 Ghz with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU, and a 8 megapixel sensor BSI (f/2.0) with LED flash, all under Android Jelly Bean.
In the meantime, for those of you who have been wondering of the Verizon exclusive HTC DROID DNA, or in case you don’t have an idea about it, be sure to check it out here.
Just as expected the HTC event in New York was all about the DROID DNA for Verizon. The long-rumored beast of a smartphone finally went official.
The DROID DNA offers a specs sheet similar to its Japanese sibling – the HTC J Butterfly. It features the first of its kind 5-inch 1080p S-LCD3 display and is powered by the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with a 1.5GHz quad-core Krait processor, Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB of RAM.
The rest of the specs include an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, a 2MP front snapper, LTE, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, Beats Audio and 16GB non-expandable internal memory. The DROID DNA is capable of wireless charging, while the battery capacity is 2020 mAh.
The DROID DNA runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean accompanied by the HTC Sense 4+ UI – a combo we already met with the One X+. It will hit the Verizon’s stores on November 21 for $200, with pre-orders starting today.
There is nothing official on the international model yet, but we guess it should get announced at the upcoming CES or MWC at the latest.
HTC has sent out invitations for an event in New York City, which will take place next Tuesday, November 13. The Taiwanese manufacturer will show off its “latest collaboration” with Verizon Wireless.
Given the recent string of leaks, we can all but confirm that the device scheduled to break cover is the HTC DROID DNA. The upcoming smartphone appears to be a close relative of the Japan exclusive HTC J butterfly. It is bound to pack an eye-catching 5” Super LCD3 display with 1080p resolution and pixel density of 440ppi. Quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro silicon, 16GB of built-in memory, microSD card, and Sense-d Android 4.1 Jelly Bean are also part of the device’s projected specs.
We are going to be live from the HTC event next week, so we’ll tell you all about the company’s latest creation.
