Today the folks from Verizon have confirmed that their popular HTC DROID DNA will be getting its first software update since launching last year. The 5-inch 1080p smartphone will be getting a slew of bug fixes that should surely enhance this already epic smartphone. They aren't delivering the latest version of Android, but there's a number of important bug fixes so read on for the full report.

Today as usual, Verizon's confirmed the update is coming soon on their official support page. Post update the DROID DNA will be updated to build 2.04.605.2 and sadly you'll still be on Android 4.1 and not 4.2 Jelly Bean. However, there's tons of fixes to audio, WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile hotspot and more. Check it out below in their official changelog.

Verizon mentions new features for HuluPlus, hotspot connectivity improvements, better audio for headphones and the earpiece both, bluetooth, WiFi, and even improved zoom on the browser in some fashion. Interestingly the changelog also mentions "enhanced recent apps functionality has been improved" -- which is their version of Android multitasking -- something many complain about when talking about HTC Sense UI. It will be interesting to see what's new there, so we'll be on the lookout for the update.

For now there's no signs or reports this is rolling out yet, but once Verizon posts the details we usually see them arrive within 2-4 days. The file is rather large coming in over 100mb in size, so might take a few moments to download. As usual you'll be notified once the update is available, or be checking for updates periodically and hopefully it comes soon. Drop us a comment below once you receive it and let us know how it all goes.

    103mb update and not android 4.2. This device won’t be seeing it anytime soon that’s for sure. This update should never have to be the device should’ve launched with this already.

      As if your “pimp slapping” Note 2 hasn’t gotten a few updates of it’s own, none of which are Android 4.2…..
