I am sure most of you folks might be aware of the recently announced DROID DNA. In case you are not, let us inform you that this latest superphone from HTC boasts of some totally out of this world specifications. Exclusive to Verizon, we all knew that this phone would soon be getting an international version as well. But we didn’t expect that one to “leak” this soon! Anyway, before we go in to the specifications of the device, let me inform you that the international version of the Droid DNA would be called the HTC Deluxe – as per rumorsville.
Let’s now delve into the specifications.
To start with, the Droid DNA boasts of a 5-inch Super LCD3 display with a resolution of 1080*1920 pixels. Yes, you read that right. A full HD display on a freaking 5 inch phone! Thanks to that insane resolution it makes the famed 326 ppi retina display look pedestrian. The pixel density here is an astonishing 441 pixels per inch! Amazing! And yes, it does get the now standard Gorilla Glass coating for that added durability.
Powering the device is a Qualcomm MDM615m/APQ8064 chipset which houses the impressive quad core processor based on the Krait architecture. Each of the four cores run at 1.5 Ghz. Thats tremendous amounts of processing power in your palms – right there. (Pun intended). The graphics bit is handled by the Adreno 320 GPU which will ensure smooth gaming performance. You also get 2 GB of RAM.
The phone gets an 8 megapixel camera complete with auto-focus and LED flash. As expected, it can record videos in full HD resolution and supports video stabilization. There is a 2.1 megapixel front camera as welll- which can also capture full HD videos.
The Droid DNA will of course support Verizon’s LTE network.
As for the leak, folks from over at evleaks have posted an image of what they say is the international version of the Droid DNA. While the internals of the device would more or less remain the same, it is unclear as to what kind of networks would the device support.
All said, one thing we would like HTC to change in the international version of the Droid DNA is its rather paltry 2050 mAH battery. Whats with HTC ruining totally awesome phones with insufficient battery capacity? Seriously.
