Verizon's 5-Inch HTC Android Could be Droid DNA

Previously thought to be the Droid Incredible X, DIX, or DLX, a purported copy of a Verizon document confirms that the five-inch smartphone will be named the Droid DNA. Verizon has listed the HTC6435LVW handset for $199.99 with a release date of November 20.

The rumored model will apparently feature a 1920 x 1080-pixel HD display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz processor and Adreno 320 GPU.

The 5.5-inch quad-core LTE Samsung Galaxy Note 2 boasts a starting price of $300, while LG's "phablet" released for $199, so it's surprising that the Droid DNA's entry price isn't higher.

Lending credence to the report is the fact that, back in April, HTC had reportedly confirmed plans to launch a 5-inch smartphone via Verizon this fall.

  • So it's coming out with ICS instead of JB and 4.2 gets released in November. I'll be getting a new phone in December, but I'm not overly impressed enough with this one.

  • There is no reason for it not to have Jelly Bean already installed.
