As we were expecting to happen, Verizon Wireless and HTC have officially announced the Droid DNA smartphone. The Droid DNA will launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the HTC Sense 4+ user interface. The specs will include a 5-inch Super LCD3 (1920 x 1080) display, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, NFC, a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera, an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with ImageSense and Sightseeing Mode and 4G LTE connectivity.
Otherwise, the Droid DNA is a Beats Audio handset and will have a 2.5v headset and speaker amplifier. One catch with the storage, there is no 32GB option available and the handset does not have a microSD card slot. Otherwise, the Droid DNA measures in at just 9.73mm thick and weighs in at 4.86 ounces. The battery is a 2020 mAh and the handset will have support for the Qi wireless charging system.
That all being said, the handset will be priced at $199 on a two-year agreement and those looking to spend some money — pre-orders are available as of today (November 13). The actual in-store availability is set for the day before Thanksgiving, November 21.
