Verizon’s HTCM7 to be a Droid DNA Plus version?
As we approach the HTCM7 announcement day, we get more and more M7-related leaks and reports. Earlier today we told you that the handset will feature a camera with ultrapixels instead of megapixels and that Carphone Warehouse and Vodafone Germany are already listing the device.
Now it’s time to look at a new rumor that says Verizon’s HTCM7 version could be sold as a Droid DNA Plus version. We will note that the main U.S. carriers are all said to sell the M7 at some point down the road, with AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint reportedly offering to customers under the same name and Verizon doing its own thing.
Either that, or the leaked specs for the DLXPLUS describe a different phone.
Whatever the case may be, the DLXPLUS is apparently coming to Verizon, and the handset will feature a 4.7-inch display with 1080p resolution, 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 13-megapixel camera and Android Jelly Bean with HTCSense 5.0 on top.
Obviously, the DLXPLUS is very similar to the M7 when it comes to rumored specs and features, so it makes sense to assume this is indeed Verizon’s M7.
So where’s the connection with the Droid DNA you may ask. And we’ll remind you that the Droid DNA was rumored to be called the DLX or Deluxe at some point before being unveiled, so the DLXPLUS codename suggests Verizon could sell the M7 as a member of the Droid DNA family.
Are you buying the M7 later this year? What carrier will you choose?
