The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is definitely the hottest phablet on the market. Incredibly powerful, and packed with goodies like the S Pen stylus, it's a tough big smartphone to beat, but a new contender might just give it a run for its money. The 5-inch Verizon HTC Droid DNA is going to sport one of the most dazzling mobile displays, and a new press image has just been leaked.
The image comes courtesy of @evleaks, which recently posted another image of the Droid DNA, only this time around, the image looks polished enough to be a press release. The source, @evleaks, has been reliable in the past, so there's a good chance this is what the we'll end up seeing on Verizon's website.
HTC and Verizon will be hosting an event on November 13 in New York City. The invite reads, "We invite you to experience our latest collaboration," and all signs are pointing to an official HTC Droid DNA unveiling. Reports also indicate that the HTC Droid DNA will release in early December, possibly December 6, according to Ubergizmo.
The HTC Droid DNA is the U.S. moniker for the Japanese HTC J Butterfly. Unless there are some special Verizon modifications (other than the Verizon logo at the top of the handset), then we should be seeing similar, if not the same specs.
The HTC Droid DNA's most amazing feature will be its incredible 5-inch 1080p display that should give users 440 pixels per inch (ppi). The handset will also feature a 1.5GHz quad-core processor running Android Jelly Bean, 2GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and come with 16GB internal memory.
According to AndroidAuthority, the Droid DNA should cost around $199.99 with a two-year contract, which would make this an incredibly appealing massive smartphone, given that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 runs $299.99.
