We've been hearing rumors of Verizon's massive 5" HTC phablet codenamed DLX for weeks now, but now we may have an idea of what the device's release name could be: the Droid DNA.



According to a leaked MAP (minimum advertised price) document that fell into the hands of Android Central, the DNA could hit Big Red's shelves around November 20th for the typical $200 price tag. Then again, it also has the Note II listed with today's date, yet we haven't heard anything about it from Verizon.

Still, this brings a couple of things to light: an HTC device named Droid DNA is coming to Verizon, and we'll likely see it sometime during the week of 11/20. Given the model number HTC6435LVW, all signs point to it being the beastly DLX. Bring it.

    You know, when people say a phone is outdated a few months later, they mean it.

    • Sven Enterlein

      "Months" is actually generous. Some devices are delayed for so long that they are outdated before they are even released

        O HAI, Bionic!

    HTC coming out with it in November would mean we get our variant before the Japanese j butterfly, yes? Seems odd considering the dlx hasn't even been announced yet but the j butterfly has.

    I see the Note 2 in there which could have come as early as yesterday :(

  • Brian Menius

    What the what?! Galaxy Note II was, at some point, acknowledged for a release today?!

    Grumble grumble.

    Could this be the phone that will persuade me to dump my unlimited? Firstworld problems suck.

    **Phil, do you think 48 font is too large of a font for CONFIDENTIAL on this internal memo?
    --Frankly, Jim, i think 24 is too large. No one's going to go against a diagonal word of any sort in Red.
    **You're right. I don't know what I was thinking.

    the lack of nexus 4 or nokia 922 on this list is making it more likely I'm buying a GS3, but ill wait until the 29th to purchase.

    Don't you just love the way android "police" simply ignore "internal/confidential" documents, and just publishes them online anyway????

    I sure hope that doesn't happen to one of AndroidPolice's internal documents.

      They're confidential but once they are leaked to the press, confidentiality goes out the window. Everything that is "leaked" isn't meant for the public - it doesn't mean that we'll stop posting leaks all of a sudden.
