HTC Droid DNA on Verizon getting a firmware update

Verizon HTC Droid DNA

The HTC Droid DNA smartphone from Verizon is now receiving a security update bundled with a couple of minor UI tweaks. The update also patches the OpenSSL related vulnerabilities which were recently discovered on Android. Among the other changes included in the update are changes to the battery and WiFi status indicator, Miracast support and the patching of the device root vulnerability issue.

The update changes the software version to 4.09.605.5, so make a note of that if you are yet to see it on the Droid DNA. This is a standard OTA update and will appear on your notifications bar when available. Although the update isn’t major by any stretch of the imagination, it’s good to know that a two year old device is still being supported by Verizon. The smartphone received the Android 4.4 and Sense 5.5 update back in April.

The Droid DNA was popular for being one of the first smartphones in the U.S. to launch with a 1080p display. It was based off the HTC J Butterfly which was launched in Japan the same year.
