Despite rumors that the new HTC DLX, aka the HTC DNA, would be coming to Verizon soon, a new mail-in rebate form was leaked from Big Red that seems to refute them. A slew of devices are shown on the rebate form, but the HTC DLX is conspicuously missing. Of course, just because it isn't on the list doesn't mean it won't come to Verizon. We already know it will be coming to VZW, but this new info definitely casts doubt that the device will come anytime before or on that date.
You may notice that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is also not on this list, but this should come as no surprise considering that Verizon themselves shared a November 29th launch date. Finally, the most interesting new phones on this list are the LG Spectrum 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere 2. This rebate form obviously confirms that these devices will hit retail before or on that date.
Verizon just issued a press statement about the launch of the LG Spectrum 2, so there's no need to repeat that here, but the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere 2 is mildly interesting. Here's a spec breakdown:
- Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
- 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display
- 1.5 GHz dual-core S4 CPU
- 8 MP camera
Hmmm... a Sammy slider? We haven't seen one of those in a while have we?
