HTC J Butterfly coming to Verizon as the Droid DNA, Arriving in December?

Not too long ago we reported on the impressive 1080p HTC J Butterfly smartphone. At the time all we knew for sure was that the device was coming to Japan. While we still don’t know all the markets that the J Butterfly will come to, it seems that the United States is getting the device, although under a completely different name. The US version of the J Butterfly will be called the HTC Droid DNA, an exclusive smartphone for the Verizon network.

Not only has there been internal document leaks from Verizon to suggest the existence of the Droid DNA, now the famous Twitter tech leaker “Evleaks” has also released a leaked press photo. Additionally, the tweet mentions that the new HTC phablet should arrive in the United States sometime in early December.

The HTC Droid DNA not only has a massive 5-inch screen with a 1080p True HD resolution, it also has a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of Ram, 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP camera and Android Jelly Bean (though not sure if it will arrive with Android 4.1 or 4.2 Jelly Bean).

If the internal documents tied to this leak prove true, the HTC Droid DNA might only set you back $199 with a two year contract – this isn’t bad considering how powerful the device seems to be. What do you think, interested in picking this up from Verizon or not?

  1. Powerhouse! Makes you wonder if 1080p on a screen that size is overkill though.

      Nah, I think that 1080p on a 5-incher is brilliant. It’s big enough for watching movies and other tasks that can take advantage of true HD, for one thing. I love the idea of a 5-inch screen for productivity, entertainment (movies/games/etc)— just not so much for talking on the phone. :)
