Remember the HTC J Butterfly? Yes, the one with a monster 5-inch 1080p display. We’ve heard reports of the device heading Stateside soon, but we weren’t quite sure in which form. But we’ve got some information now thanks to a leaked FCC document which confirms the device’s arrival on its doorsteps. The HTC Droid DNA (DLX) as it is being known in the rumor mill will hopefully feature all the goodies we saw in the Japanese variant. It’s not news to us that this monster could well be making its way to Verizon. While there is still no info on the exact availability and launch of the device, it wouldn’t be wrong to presume that it’s so much closer now to reality. The listing bears the model number HTC6435LVW which we could see or hear a lot of in the coming days. It also packs the usual array of network radios (LTE/CDMA) and support for global networks as well. There’s still no word on whether this would remain a Verizon exclusive or if AT&T and other carriers would get a slice too. The device is believed to be announced/launched on December 6th, which goes well in line with the holiday season arrival. A rumor also states that the initial 2-year contract pricing will be set at $249.
Going by its Japanese sibling, we can guess that the Verizon Droid DNA would feature the same 5-inch 1080p Full HD Super LCD3 display, the quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip clocked at 1.5 GHz, a hefty 2GB of RAM and an 8MP camera. Remember these are just preliminary specs and the official specs sheet might be different. Most of these specs are immaterial really, because all that we’re looking forward to is that crisp life-like 1080p display panel. Sprint could be looking to get an EVO flavored version of the device, while AT&T seems to be too busy with the Galaxy Note 2, One X+ and the rest of the gang. It might not be a bad idea really for HTC to launch this beast of a device on all American carriers. As for international users, HTC might have a variant up its sleeve particularly for them. Let’s see how things pan out, and here’s hoping HTC launches the new Droid DNA in time for the holiday season.
