Report: HTC to Announce 1080p Droid Device Next Week

HTC and Verizon has confirmed that they'll be unveiling their next smartphone on November 13, which is widely believed to be the Droid DNA.

On November 13 in NYC at 11 a.m. EST, the smartphone maker and U.S. carrier will be showcasing the powerful 5-inch 1080p quad-core smartphone.

The rumored handset is said to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and feature a 1920 x 1080-pixel HD display, accompanied by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz processor and Adreno 320 GPU.

HTC's Droid DNA also apparently delivers 440 PPI inside an SLCD 3 display. 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8 or 12 megapixel camera and a 2,500 mAh battery rounds off the rumored features of the smartphone.

Previously thought to be the Droid Incredible X, DIX, or DLX, the Droid DNA was recently showcased in a leaked image. A leaked Verizon document, meanwhile, confirms a release date of November 20.

    I thought motorola paid george lucas a bunch of money so they could use the term "droid", and that they would be the only manufacturer selling phones branded as "droids". I've always hated when people would refer to any android smartphone as a "droid".

    That being said, 1080p on a 5" screen might be overkill, but im really excited to see it in person.
