The day when Verizon Wireless’ customers will be able to take advantage of a brand new, high-end smartphone from HTC draws near, as the device has been reportedly spotted at the Federal Communication Commission.The smartphone was recently seen in a supposedly leaked press photo, and rumor has it that it should be officially introduced sooner rather than later.
According to some reports, the smartphone is set to become officially available at Verizon in early December, with a December 6 launch date mentioned specifically.
There are no official details on the hardware specs of the device, but previous rumors did provide us with a glimpse at what it might pack inside when launched.
Thus, we expect it to hit shelves with a large 5-inch 1920x1080p full HD SLC3 display, as well as with a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor from Qualcomm, and 2GB of RAM.
Moreover, the device should sport 16GB of internal memory, with a possible a 32GB model expected to arrive as well.
The HTC DROID DNA is also said to be powered by a large 2,500 mAh battery, which should provide users with increased usage times.
The phone is running under Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and might also sport a variety of specific applications coming from Verizon themselves.
Courtesy of the FCC filing, we were also able to learn that the device will be released with support for the wireless carrier’s 4G LTE network, though there was little doubt that this would happen.
The downside is that the device might actually miss the Black Friday sales, and that it will make it on shelves only in early December, though it would still catch a bit of this year’s holiday shopping season.
With all the rumors and leaks on this device pointing at a near release, it should not be too long before an official announcement is made, so stay tuned to learn more on the matter.
