Verizon Wireless and HTC, as expected, just announced the DROID DNA. As many rumors had suggested, the device sports a 5-inch LCD 3 display with a 1080p resolution, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, HTC Sense 4+, Beats Audio, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and 4G LTE support. Despite the phone’s large screen, the DROID DNA tapers down to a mere 4mm thickness in some areas and also has a solid curved, soft touch backside. Like HTC’s One X on AT&T, the DROID DNA is equipped with the company’s ImageSense technology for snapping photos in rapid fire or while filming video. It als has a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera with the same 88 wide-angle lens that the Windows Phone 8X offers . We’ll be bringing you a hands-on shortly so stay tuned!
