Finally, after several days of rumors and speculations the release date and rate of much-anticipated Verizon DROID DNA smartphone has been unveiled by HTC in an event held on Tuesday, 13th November.
The device is set to hit the market on November 21 for just $200 for new customers and upgrades.
This ‘ultimate smart phone’ is outfitted with a massive 5-inch display and pixel density of 440PPI, that being higher density than any other smartphone or tablet. The screen is reinforced with coating of Corning Gorrila Glass 2 to survive scratches and scrapes.
“The 5-inch smartphone will be the first phablet-class device to launch with a full 1080p HD resolution display and features competitive high-end specs, including a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor,” says GottabeMobile.
Furthermore, this beast features 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, two cameras 8MP at the rear and 2.1MP in the front penal for video recording and 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor which is able to handle battery conservation very well.
The DROID DNA is integrated with built-in Beats Audio featuring 2.55v headphones amplifier and a rear speaker amplifier. Lack of memory card slot is disappointing, however.
This machine also runs with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean which tags along several Google mobile services and other enhanced features like Google Now, Voice Search, Speech-to-text and multiple others.
At its thickest, DROID DNA is 9.73mm, while at thinnest, it is 4.4mm. This giant device is possibly a bit easier to handle than its biggest rival Samsung Galaxy Note II.
Samsung Galaxy Note II is also set to be released this month at a special event to be held on Nov. 19th in New York City. It is expected to come with a 5-inch display 1280×720 resolution, 1.6GHz Quad-core Exynos Processor, 3,100mAh Battery, 2GB of RAM, 8MP Camera/1.9MP Front-Facing and many other features.
