HTC and Verizon to hold event on November 13th to announce new device, possibly the HTC DROID DNA
No sooner do we see Verizon training its reps on the HTC DROID DNA then HTC and Verizon start sending out invitations to a event on November 13th. A new device is expected to be unveiled and many Big Red customers are hoping that it is the HTC DROID DNA being unwrapped on Tuesday. The festivities are supposed to take place at 11am in New York City. While another Hurricane, like the one that canceled Google's so-called  "Playground" event a week ago Monday, is not expected, a nor'easter is due to create some havoc on Wednesday. This should be cleared up in time for this event.

What we know about the HTC DROID DNA is that it will have a 5 inch display with resolution of 1080 x 1920. This works out to a massive pixel density of 441ppi. 2GB of RAM is expected to be on board with an 8MP or 12MP camera on back and a 2MP camera in front. HTC Sense 4+ should be running over Android 4.1.1. Driving the phablet will most likely be the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 which means LTE connectivity fits like a glove with the quad-core processor.

A leaked press shot of the HTC DROID DNA shows wallpaper on the phone that matches the background of the November 13th invitation, so if the HTC DROID DNA has been on your mind constantly, Tuesday's event is one you're not going to want to miss. And that, of course, means keeping your eyes right here on Phone Arena.

Maybe they will improve Sense UI for this phone.

I cant think of any UI that hasnt gotten at least a little bit better of the last year or two.

Blur and Sense are both to the point where they're tolerable now, haha

PH, you just posted a few hours ago the training sheet for verizon that clearly states 8MP. Still not sure whether it's 8 or 12? Do you just post and paste thise specs from your old articles?

If you buy one, keep a car battery handy to recharge. Honestly, the S4 Pro has not been shown to be the most efficient SoC (I'm going to learn to live with it on the Nexus 4), but this phone, albeit nice and ultimately specced, will be lucky to see 2.5 hours of screen time. That would be pretty awful, regardless of specs.

i think it'll fair slightly better than what you think but we'll jus have to see.......if its that bad then HTC would seriously need to rethink things........O and about the Nexus 4, you can remove the battery if you really wanted to, just use a screw driver according to an earlier article by PA.....The LG nexus 4 honestly will be one of the best phones ever in my opinion.........and factoring in the price for it will make it that much more sweet!

Htc, this is the phone that'll get you back in the game. Its like the Evo all over again. Which is a good thing.

Hopefully sense will not slow down this phone.

sense is lighter than it use to be bro and with a quad core snapdragon S4 processor and jelly bean under the hood i dont think "slow" would be any wheres arouND ;)

Looking at the specs the only thing that will slow this phone down will be the connection speed lol

it's an exciting phone but there's just too many battery draining properties about this phone to make it practical to own unless you have an Arc Reactor in your Chest you can plug it up to. i'm still pretty confident in my 1-2 punch plan using the MAXX HD and the Nexus 10. longevity, reliability, vast storage space & build quality in one hand along with immense power, a killer display & the benefits of the Nexus name in the other. i can't lose.

We will know about the battery life soon enough. Both are reputable phone brands. I think that with the increased battery capacity (to 2500) and other changes the battery life will be better. But perhaps not the significant improvement we are hoping for.
