From the moment the HTC M7 was leaked, industry speculation suggested it would likely not be coming to Verizon because it could interfere with sales of the fairly comparable HTC Droid DNA. A new rumor today suggests that speculation could be false. Supposedly, a version of the HTC M7 will be launched by Verizon, but it will actually be launched as a version of the Droid DNA. This DNA variant currently has the codename of DLXPLUS. Additionally, the source of this intel even has a spec-list of the new phone:
- 4.7-inch full HD 1080p
- 1.7GHz quad-core CPU
- 13-megapixel camera
- A microSD slot (this differs from the original DROID DNA)
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB of internal storage
- Sense 5.0
- LTE connectivity
- Android 4.1.2
Sadly, the intel did not include a battery size which has been HTC's weakness since... forever. If this device had a 2500 mAh battery or better, would it intrigue you?
Update: This is only marginally related to this story, but it makes more sense than posting a separate thread. HTC just posted a new teaser pic for the M7. We have updated the pic of this story with it.
