Droid DNA smartphone announced by HTC, Verizon -- complete with 1080p full-HD screen

HTC and Verizon Wireless today announced the exclusive DROID DNA by HTC smartphone — the first with a full HD 1080p display.  The DROID DNA by HTC will be available exclusively through Verizon Wireless through pre-order starting today and nationwide retail availability comes Tuesday, November 21st.

“People gravitate to products that offer new experiences, ones that they didn’t believe could exist just a few short years ago.  The DROID franchise began with products that leaped beyond what people had previously know to represent new abilities to stay connected, entertained and empowered,” said Jason Mackenzie, president, HTC Corporation. “With the DROID DNA by HTC, we’re bringing a number of industry-leading firsts to the market, most specifically the first 1080p full HD display allowing people to see their world in a new way through a screen that captures and plays back life in true HD.”

With technology rivaling the latest HD TV’s, the DROID DNA by HTC is the first smartphone in the U.S. to feature a true 1080p HD super LCD 3 display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection.  It boasts an extraordinary 440 pixels per inch (PPI) on an incredible 5-inch screen for unprecedented in-hand HD experiences that delivers the maximum pixel clarity available on a smartphone.

Designed to accentuate the incredible display, the deep black soft-touch back is understated with the exception of a metallic red camera bezel while red micro-grilled sidewalls hint at the phone’s DROID heritage and the power contained within.  The smartphone feels thinner than other devices of a similar size as the edges of the curved back taper to a mere 4mm to feel comfortable in hand and fit easily in a pocket.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core 1.5 GHz processor paired with the 4G LTE network from Verizon Wireless and a full 2G of RAM allows people to move faster by enabling seamless the use of multiple apps simultaneously. With HTC Sense 4+ and Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean,The Droid DNA by HTC is also equipped with a 2,020 mAh battery and power saving software 

Camera improvements
The DROID DNA by HTC has a camera that delivers fast image capture, great images even in low-light and an easy interface to capture stills and video. With an 8-megapixel f/2.0 wide-angle lens, 5-level automatic flash, backside illuminated sensor (BSI), and superfast autofocus, you’ll capture amazing moments without the worry of missing a single one. Instead of choosing between photos and video, HTC VideoPic™ allows you to capture video and still images at the same time, and by just holding the shutter button, Continuous Shooting takes multiple photos at up to four frames per second to catch all the action. 

The smartphone also includes a new best-in-class front-facing camera with an 88° ultra-wide angle lens to allow more to be captured in self-portraits or group shots. Auto Portrait makes it easier to take photos of yourself and your friends with a countdown timer so you can focus on your pose and not the shutter button.  The front camera, capable of capturing 1080p HD video, also provides for a shaper picture during video chats to share more of your emotion.

The DROID DNA by HTC has a unique 2.55 volt built-in headset amplifier and dedicated amp for the external rear-speaker to help boost the audio signal to deliver crystal clear sound with less distortion, even at maximum volume. The combination of amplified hardware and the sound of Beats Audio truly allows music to be heard the way the artist intended, and enhances the sound quality while playing games or watching video.

HTC Sense 4+ & Jelly Bean
The smartphone offers a wealth of easy-to-use and customizable features made possible by HTC Sense 4+ with Google Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). The ability to personalize features makes everyday tasks easier and less time consuming and puts the most important content front and center. HTC Sense 4+ has a simplified user interface, customizable widgets, and enriched web browsing features such as saving web pages to view later, even when offline.  

The DROID DNA by HTC also features embedded wireless charging, making it easy and convenient to re-charge throughout the day and drop your phone at the end of the day knowing it will be charged in the morning.  With Near Field Communication (NFC), the phone is able to communicate with other phones by tapping them together to share business cards or music playlists.

The DROID DNA by HTC will be available exclusively from Verizon Wireless through a pre-order starting today at www.verizonwireless.com/droiddna, and available online and in stores nationwide beginning Tuesday, November 21st for $199.99 with a two-year customer agreement.

Droid DNA offer high-end hardware specification and this the best phone to buy but it also has few limitation like iPhone no battery change option, micro-sd card option, etc. Better to go for Nexus 4, Note 2.

Great information there, Thank you for the share. I thought of also sharing about my new CHOE Qi Wireless Charger for Galaxy S4 I9500 (Wireless Charging Pad and Wireless Charging Receiver Included) which I bought at Amazon for $32.99

Works with any Qi-enabled device through an adapter or an embedded chip

Power Source: AC Adaptor plugs into charging pad

Freedom of Placement: No annoying magnets to align or secret spots to find in order to charge your device. The wireless charging pad is Qi standard, you can charge any Qi-enabled device today, tomorrow and beyond with Light indicator to show charging status.
It works well with Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.
