For those of us who don’t live in the US, it’s always heart breaking to see flagship material getting exclusively released on Verizon’s CDMA network (Razr Maxx anyone?), while others have to wait for months for the same piece of hardware (albeit, the GSM variant). The most recent addition to this list was the Droid DNA. Boasting an astounding 5 inch 1080p display, it really puts other phones (ahem, iPhone) to shame. The display offers a staggering 441 ppi and comes with Gorilla Glass 2 goodness.
Well according to rumors, the global version for the device is in the works and would be known by the name of HTC Deluxe. Not such a classy name for such a device if you ask us. Anyway, the device should have the same specs as the Droid DNA. This means a Qualcomm MDM615m/APQ8064 chipset (Snapdragon S4 Pro) at the heart of the phone housing the impressive quad core processor based on the Krait architecture. The four cores run at 1.5 GHz. The graphics will be handled by the Adreno 320 along with 2 GB RAM onboard.
The camera on the DNA is an 8 MP autofocus along with a 2.1 Mp front facing camera. There’s also a 2050 mAh battery powering the monster.
We hope that the international version doesn’t come with the paltry 16 GB memory onboard or at least has expandable memory, unlike the Droid DNA. It is unclear yet what radios the international version would support.
