5-inch devices appear to be all the rage, and so naturally, HTC had to take a crack at it. Announcing the DROID DNA for Verizon, this 5-inch “don’t call it a phablet” device has some impressive specs. Most impressive is the Super LCD3 display featuring full 1080p (1920×1080) resolution with a ppi of 440! The DROID DNA is like an HTC One X on steroids, featuring:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, quad-core at 1.5 GHz.
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB storage (11GB usable) – no microSD
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+.
- 8MP rear camera with ImageSense and a new “Sightseeing mode”
- 2.1MP f/2.0 front-facing camera with auto portrait mode.
- Beats Audio
- 2,020mAh battery
- Wireless Charging
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 2.5v headset and speaker amplifier.
- 4G LTE data.
The DROID DNA certainly is a beast of a device, it’s too bad it has the stomach the size of a pea. I’m really not getting this trend of less storage, thankfully I have many other devices to choose from. The beauty of Android — enough choices that you’re bound to find a device that fits your needs.
The DROID DNA will hit shelves November 21st for the subsidized price of $199.99 with a two year contract. Pre-orders for the DROID DNA will open today and anyone interested can simply visit Verizon Wireless for more information.
