"It's no secret that people depend on their smartphones more and more every
day which rightfully raises expectations for performance, speed, and design.
The DROID DNA by HTC embodies a smartphone that pushes the envelope in all of

and Verizon's 4G LTE network, all wrapped in a beautifully crafted design,"
said Jason Mackenzie, president, HTC Corporation. "The DROID DNA by HTC is
sure to top wish lists this holiday season."

The Ultimate Smartphone

With technology rivaling the latest HD TV's, the DROID DNA by HTC is the first
smartphone to feature a true 1080p HD super LCD 3 display with Corning®
Gorilla® Glass 2 protection. It boasts an extraordinary 440 pixels per inch
(PPI) on a 5-inch screen for unprecedented in-hand HD experiences that
delivers the maximum pixel clarity available on a smartphone.

Designed to accentuate the incredible display, the deep black, soft-touch back
is understated, with the exception of a metallic red camera bezel, while the
red microgrill pattern of the sidewalls hint at the phone's DROID heritage and
the power inside. The beautifully crafted smartphone feels thinner than other
devices of a similar size as the edges of the curved back taper to a mere 4mm
for a comfortable feel in the hand or pocket.

The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 Pro processor, featuring a quad-core 1.5 GHz CPU
and high-performance GPU, paired with America's largest 4G LTE network from
Verizon Wireless and a full 2G of RAM enable the seamless use of multiple
apps simultaneously. With HTC Sense® 4+ and Android™ 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean), you
get great software experiences including Google Now. HTC Sense 4+ offers a
wealth of easy-to-use and customizable features bringing highly sought after
personalization to your phone and placing the most important content front and
center. A series of intelligent features powered by HTC Sense 4+ also
provides a number of improvements to the camera.

Amazing Camera

The DROID DNA by HTC has a world-class camera that delivers fast image
capture, great images even in low-light and an easy interface to capture
stills and video. With an 8-megapixel f/2.0 28mm wide-angle lens, 5-level
automatic flash, backside illuminated sensor (BSI), and superfast autofocus,
you'll capture amazing moments without the worry of missing a single one.
Instead of choosing between photos and video, HTC VideoPic™ allows you to
capture video and still images at the same time. And by simply holding the
shutter button, Continuous Shooting takes multiple photos at up to four frames
per second to catch all the action.

It also includes a new best-in-class 2.1-megapixel, f/2.0, 88-degree,
ultra-wide angle, front-facing camera that allows more to be captured in
self-portraits, and up to four people for group shots. Auto Portrait makes it
easier to take photos of yourself and your friends with automatic face
detection and a countdown timer so you can focus on your pose and not the
shutter button. Capable of capturing 1080p HD video, the front-facing camera
also provides a sharper picture during video chat.

Authentic Sound

The DROID DNA by HTC has a unique, 2.55-volt, built-in headset amplifier and
dedicated amp for the external rear-speaker to help boost the audio signal to
deliver crystal clear sound with less distortion, even at maximum volume. The
combination of amplified hardware and the rich, authentic, studio-quality
sound of Beats Audio™ allows music to be heard the way the artist intended,
and enhances the sound quality while playing games or watching video.

Additional Features

The DROID DNA by HTC is equipped with a 2,020 mAh battery and power saving
software that enables long-lasting endurance. In addition, the embedded
wireless charging makes it easy and convenient to top off power throughout the
day or fully charge overnight, simply by setting the phone down. Finally,
with near field communication (NFC), you can use the DROID DNA by HTC to share
music and videos, add someone to your social networks, or download apps by
tapping other NFC-enabled devices.
