HTC has launched the world’s first 1080p resolution smartphone. In case you’re wondering how big is that, 1080p resolutions normally only comes in 22″ monitors and above. While Apple has already got their retina displays on iPhones and Macbooks for quite some time, HTC is not too late in the game too.
Laucnhed in the US, the Droid DNA comes with a 3rd generation LCD panel with a whooping 440ppi density. It’s armed with a quad core Snapdragon APQ8064 and Adreno 320 GPU, comes in 2GB of RAM and has a 8Megapixel camera. The phone will be on sales on November 21st for 199USD with a plan on Verizon.
The Droid DNA’s phone design is identical to HTC Butterfly which was launched previously in Japan. This phone will be the current flagship phone, somehow beating the One X+ hands down with its screen resolution. Besides that, it’s also HTC’s first time using qualcomm’s baseband chipset, the MDM9615, which is also found in the Apple iPhone 5.
Besides that, Droid DNA also comes with a front 2.1Megapixel F/2.0 front camera that is the same as the 8X. It also comes with a built in audio amplifier to show off Beats audio’s true capabilities, satisfying audiophile enthusiasts’ needs
Seemingly, wireless charging is the new trend. Droid DNA can also be wirelessly charged like the Lumia 920 and Nexus 4. A bigger battery capacity could make this monster gadget a full day entertainment device, but 16GB memory is just too little for all the other awesomeness in hardware.
