Verizon posted details surround an incoming update for the DROID DNA several months ago that would bring the device up to Android 4.2.2 and dress it up with Sense 5, but an OTA never came. Now that's changing, as Verizon has officially announced it and provided a detailed overview of changes owners can expect. The update will provide an experience similar to that on the HTC One, with features such as BlinkFeed, quick settings, and improved Sense apps making their way over to what was 2012's best DROID.


Sense 5 is more subdued than the older version that shipped on the DROID DNA. In addition to the aforementioned features, changes are in store for the Calendar, Gallery, People, and Smart Dialer apps as well. They are joined by a healthy slathering of bug fixes.



The update is rolling out in two separate parts. The first will install software version 2.08.605.1 710RD, which doesn't contain the exciting bits. Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5 come in the second upgrade to version 3.06.605.4.
