HTC DLX for Verizon Revealed in First Photos

There she is, the HTC DLX that is headed to Verizon. We have been following the “dlx” saga probably longer than any other site, so it feels fantastic to finally see it floating about in the wild. This is HTC’s 5″ 1080p phone, similar to the J Butterfly that was announced in Japan, only this one should be launching on Verizon in a month or so. We had heard from a couple of sources of ours that this was in VZW testers’ hands, so the first set of leaks popping up is no surprise. 

What do we learn from this new leak and first set of photos? It looks about like we would have expected it to, with a matte or soft black finish, red accents, and Verizon branding. The display looks massive, and is at 5-inches. There is an 8MP camera on the back, 2MP camera on the front, 4G LTE branding, a BeatsAudio logo, 16GB of on-board storage, 2GB RAM, 2500mAh battery, and a quad-core processor, which we are assuming is the Snapdragon S4 Pro.

It’s running Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) and Sense 4+.

We still have no release date or official announcement from either Verizon or HTC. Rumors peg it for a November launch, which we can’t wait for.

Is this the phone you have been waiting for? Can it top the Galaxy Note 2?

    What is specification to this device , density ? scaled density ..? It is xxhdpi device or part of xhdpi ?

  • will it have a removable battery?

  • Roy

    8mp camera? Why not 12 or 13? Smh

  • Joel

    I’m happy to see 2500 mAh battery instead of 2020 like the Japan version.

  • What about external storage?

  • Man these HTC devices are always hideously ugly, they often resemble a worn bicycle tire.

  • Trevor

    There don’t appear to be any dock connectors on the back of this phone. Hope it has a microSD slot and that it has good battery life. 2500 mAh seems like a lot, but who knows. Not a fan of the capacitive buttons though…why do companies refuse to use onscreen buttons like how Google meant Android to be used? Still, I am quite anxious for the release of this phone.

    Yep, I do believe this is going to be my next phone purchase. I love the one X and have been waiting for HTC to release something like it on Verizon.

  • LIboyz

    when can we get it???

  • Tyler Casilio

    I want to see the home screen lol But yes, probably gonna be my next phone

    This would have made an amazing nexus5. Shame about how ‘verizoned’ it became. What happened to the clowns chastising folks in another thread about how htc doesnt let verizon mess with their designs?

  • Chris Hollenbeck

    I would rather put a cigarette out in my eye than buy another HTC phone.

  • Jon

    battery capacity is only 2100 mAh. That’s not going to cut it.

    • Yet everyone loves and buys their Galaxy’s with 2000mAh and similar screen size….

      remains to be seen… much has been written about the CPU & GPU ability to not suck down the jiuce… guess we’ll know soon-ish.

    • The S4 Pro is supposed to just barely sip power but it will be fun to see how well the GPU can cope with the extra pixels!

  • mooncake44

    Pack one for me plz!

  • Brittany n

    I’m liking this phone phone a lot but the only thing that is it doesn’t say there’s a micro sd slot so right now I’m torn between this and the note 2

  • Stevedub40

    I don’t know, HTC is starting to get just as stale as apple. They need to do something different with the back to spice it up a bit. Plus those damn capacitive nav buttons!
