The smartphone was announced with a November 21 launch date
Verizon certainly has a great deal on the new DROID DNA by HTC, a 5-inch behemoth set to land on its shelves on November 21, but it seems that the carrier’s retail partners have already managed to sweeten the deal.The handset is now available for pre-order at Wirefly with a price tag of $149.99 attached to it with the signing of a two-year contract agreement.
That is $50 less than what Verizon asks for the device at the moment and it should make it a bit more appealing than it already was. The retailer lists the phone with a $699.99 off-contract price attached to it.
For those out of the loop, we should note that DROID DNA by HTC was made official at Verizon earlier this week with a 5-inch full HD 1080p touchscreen display on the front, capable of a 440ppi pixel density.
The smartphone also comes with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor inside, complemented by 2GB of RAM, which should deliver increased performance levels to all users.
On the back, the new smartphone features an 8-megapixel photo snapper with support for full HD video recording, while also packing a 2MP front camera for making video calls.
DROID DNA also features 16GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth connectivity, mobile hotspot capabilities, and support for the wireless carrier’s 4G LTE network.
Powered by a 2020mAh Standard Li–Ion battery, the smartphone also includes NFC capabilities, Beats Audio, and global roaming, meaning that users will be able to enjoy its features on the networks of other wireless carriers as well.
The handset was announced with Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, as well as with HTC Sense 4.0+ loaded on top and with a nice range of Google and third-party apps pre-loaded from the start. It also comes with an unlockable bootloader, some of the latest reports on it suggest.
