The Samsung Galaxy Note and Note 2 have proved beyond all doubt that the Tabphone market is an enormously lucrative one – and it seems other manufacturers intend on taking their own slice home. Rumor has it that HTC’s rather depressing run of bad luck in terms of Smartphone performance may be destined to get a massive shot in the arm over the coming weeks, with the launch of the brand-new HTC Droid DNA – aka the HTC J Butterfly in Japan.
Along with representing HTC’s first foray into the world of the Tabphone, it has been suggested that the HTC Droid DNA release date will herald no less than a revolution in Smartphone and Tablet display quality.
In any case, the rumors and hearsay will be proved accurate or otherwise next week, as HTC has mailed out invites to a major press event scheduled to take place next Tuesday – undoubtedly the launch party for the Droid DNA.
Various leaks have put together a rather comprehensive picture of what we might expect from the Droid DNA’s specs and features, which of course begin with the same stunning 5-inch 1080p touchscreen as that found on the Japanese HTC J Butterfly – which also has a much more charming name!
Behind the incredible edge-to-edge panel is said to lie a quad-core Snapdragon processor clocked at at least 1.6GHz, backed by 2GB of dedicated RAM and 4G LTE connectivity as standard.
The HTC Droid DNA is also expected to launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box.
Twin cameras are expected to deliver the 2012 standard of 8-megapixels round the back and 2 up front, which is neither show-stopping nor to be sniffed at.
Pricing details and final release dates are yet to be announced, though at this time it is rumored that the HTC Droid DNA will hit the US market exclusively for Verizon Wireless customers.
