Recent reports say Samsung is on a roll with plans of launching new Android devices. LG seems to be not far behind, too, especially with word about an upcoming Android smartphone called the LG Optimus…
It seems that the arrival of the rumored HTC Droid DNA could be imminent.
The 5-inch HTC phablet first graced us with its presence in mid-October when it was announced for the Japanese market as the HTC J Butterfly. In the weeks following, rumors popped up suggesting the J Butterfly would eventually make its way to the United States exclusively for Verizon as the HTC Droid DNA. Now we have a leaked press shot that suggests the Droid DNA will arrive in early December.
The press shot comes from well-known tech leaker, Evleaks. Considering information from Evleaks tends to be pretty accurate, odds are this is the real deal. It also helps that Verizon's own site and internal documents have made mention of the Droid DNA name as well.
Wondering what kind of hardware we might see with the HTC Droid DNA? It is believed the smartphone will feature a 5-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, an 8MP camera and the power of Android Jelly Bean.
If Verizon is still on schedule for an early December release, we can expect an official announcement any time now. As for pricing, an earlier leaked document suggested the possibility of $199 with contract. Keep in mind that none of this is official yet, so take it all with a grain of salt.
If the HTC Droid DNA is in fact the HTC J Butterfly, is anyone interested in picking this phone up as soon as it arrives? If not, do you still have your heart set on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 instead?
