Back in early February, we caught wind of a new HTC device that appeared to be headed to Verizon under the codename “DLXPLUS.” For those not familiar with the naming convention, think of the DROID DNA as the “DLX.” At first, we were hoping that this would be Big Red’s version of the HTC One because the purported specs matched up exactly, but since we know now that the device is landing everywhere but there, we’ll assume this phone must be something somewhat different. Will it be the DROID DNA+ or perhaps the DROID ONE (not likely “One”)? (more…)
In a recent discussion at MWC, the head of HTC UK disclosed to the press that the manufacturer’s One device, will be their only flagship device this year. To help with marketing strategies that are now in place and with efforts focused on bringing the same unit to as many carriers throughout the world as possible, this is exactly what HTC has been needing – a top dog device, with massive marketing efforts put behind it in order to compete with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S4 and the mysterious Motorola X phone.

Developer and HTC insider @LlabTooFeR appears to have leaked the specs to a new version of HTC’s DROID DNA on Verizon. Remember the codename of “dlx” that clung to that phone as it approached launch? That same codename has appeared in a new device but with an addition, making it the “DLXPLUS.” Are we going to see a revamped DNA already or is this Verizon’s version of the HTC M7? (more…)
Moments ago, a press render of HTC’s 5″ super device, the DROID DNA, was posted onto Twitter. Along with the image was also a very important piece of info, a suspected release time of “early December.” From earlier reports, we were expecting this device to be made available around mid-November, but that wasn’t confirmed from HTC or Verizon. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the device with Verizon branding, but it is the first we’ve seen of a completely new DROID eye and red binding around the edges.
According to Verizon’s most recent MAP (minimum advertised price) list, the HTC DLX (the 5″ 1080p phone) may launch as the HTC DROID DNA around November 20. We are under the impression that this is the same phone because of the model number HTC6435LVW, a number that we first reported months ago along with the codename “dlx.” (more…)
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. (more…)
You know the HTC “dlx” or 5″ 1080p Verizon phone that we have been talking about for months now? HTC just announced it for Japan as the J Butterfly, and it looks stunning.
The device does indeed sport a 5″ Super LCD 3 1080p display (440ppi), Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, LTE, Jelly Bean (Android 4.1), 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front camera, 2020mAh battery, and a microSD card slot. The J Butterfly weighs 140g and is 9.1mm thick. For Japan, it will come in 3 colors: red, white and black. HTC is expecting to launch it in December. (more…)
Did long-time HTC developer, Football, posted the official specs for the HTC DLX on Twitter? Well, we would certainly like to think so. As you all know, this is a device we first outed via benchmark back in July. The “dlx” is supposedly headed to Verizon under model number HTC6435, with a 1080p display and a set of specs we have yet to see in an mobile device. If Football is correct, then this phone will indeed have a 5-inch 1080p display, run on a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, contain 1.5GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, a 12MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, a 2500mAh non-removable battery, and run Android 4.1.2.
