And it’s official. The HTC DROID DNA has just been announced for Verizon and will be available for purchase starting November 21st for $199 with contract. The Android 4.1 smartphone boasts some pretty impressive specs, starting with a 5-inch SLCD display with a resolutuon of 1920×1080. Yes, that’s full 1080p resolution right in your hand. But the power of the handset goes deeper with a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB of internal storage (sorry, no microSD).

The Droid DNA carries an 8MP camera with HTC’s ImageChip technology. This 28mm wide-angle lens can capture video with resolutions up to 1080p, and an 88-degree ultra wide-angle 2.1MP front-facing camera can do the same. A 2,020mAh battery seems a bit light, but wireless charging capabilities still provide plenty to talk about when it comes to powering the new handset.

The Droid DNA is a Beats Audio device. The Droid DNA is an LTE device. In other words, name a spec that you were hopeful to see in your next handset and this phone probably has it. NFC? Check. MHL? Check. Bluetooth 4.0? Check.

Those interested in picking up the latest collaboration between HTC and Verizon can start placing their pre-orders today. It might be a good idea if you hope to avoid the holiday shopping rush.
