HTC Droid DNA press shot leaked

HTC J Butterfly

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.

HTC Droid DNAIf 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?

    Too bad this wasn’t the Nexus, the rumored Nexus 5, but so good it didn’t lose LTE as the Nexus 4 did. This could be my next!! Hopefully it will have a 2,500 mAh battery and SD-card.

    Hell yes this is the device of the year . S4 pro 1080p take my money now and I want the red one . Nerdgasm

  • amazing device, i think 5 inch 1080p will become standard size and resolution for android smartphones

      1080p becoming standard I can see. Not sure about 5″ screens though, it just seems a bit too big imho. 4.7″ is the biggest I would go for a phone screen.

        I have a 4.7″ with my droid razr maxx hd and it is awesome but I wouldn’t want any bigger

        Have you every held a galaxy s3? This phone is 0.4mm wider than the galaxy s3, If the s3 with a 4.8″ screen isn’t too big for you, then this shouldn’t be. This phone is only 2.1mm wider than the original droid razr with a 4.3″ screen. I’d say that’s pretty impressive.

    Who is this Evleaks guy, he/she must be a ninja!

    AWESOME!! but whats the point making it a Verizon’s device?! I live out side the US, and I want this device, I can’t get it.
    Nexus 4 all the way :D

    It seems like a great phone, but the thing is that the battery isnt big enough to support ot, not letting the phone have a good battery life. And this is one of the most important things that a phone can offer, as if the phone doesnt have a good battery life, no matter how good the phone is. The phone would be useless

  • Zeals

    Great looking phone, shame about having capacitative instead of onscreen buttons though. Also what does DNA stand for? Deluxe North America?

    440 ppi…. :O!!!! Amazing

  • Tom
