HTC DROID DNA Specs Unveiled by Verizon at NYC Event

The handset features the first of its kind 5-inch 1080p SuperLCD3 display and is powered by the Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with a 1.5GHz quad-core Krait processor. It also features Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB RAM.

It is expected to be released in Verizon stores on Nov. 21 and customers will be able to purchase the handset for $200 with a new 2-year agreement.

Pre-orders for the HTC Droid DNA start today.

The smartphone was introduced to the public on a Google+ Hangout and in order to be invited, users had to add Verizon Wireless to their circle on Google+.

"Experience the newest DROID before its public launch," wrote Verizon on its webpage. "Add Verizon Wireless to a circle on Google+ for an exclusive invite to our Hangout on Air Unboxing Event."

This new device will probably be HTC's most impressive smartphone offering since the One X, which launched earlier this year.

The handset is still just receiving the Android 4.1, JellyBean update in certain parts of the globe.

The device's web browser is now a lot faster than it was, as the new software allows the it to fully utilize its quad-core processor .

Various Benchmark results have been posted on to the internet showing the HTC One X ranking higher than it previously did thanks to the update.

The JellyBean update for the One X began rolling out in Taiwan last month.

HTC's headquarters is located in Taiwan and this is the reasoning behind it being one of the first countries to receive the upgrade.
