After all the leaks and rumors today HTC and Verizon silenced them all by officially announcing their new HTC DROID DNA. The phone is completed by a 5-inch 1080p HD display, quad-core processor, and basically everything we already knew based on leaks — but one we didn’t. Up on stage HTC announced that like the LG Nexus 4, the DROID DNA supports wireless charging right out of the box.
Yup, the HTC DROID DNA has wireless inductive charging built right into the smartphone and no user changes or battery door replacements are needed. Most likely this will be able to neatly charge wirelessly with the Google Nexus charger, as well as works great with the LG Wireless Charging dock from Verizon for $59.99 shown above. It is the Qi wireless charger standard here, which means those new Nokia chargers should work with it too.
This 5-inch 1920 x 1080p full HD smartphone running on a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, MHL out for streaming 1080p video and more also runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and supports full wireless charging. When we said HTC’s pulled out all the stops for this new smartphone, we meant it. We have the fastest mobile processor, highest resolution display, nearly the latest version of Google’s OS, and now wireless charging. Well done HTC!
For more details check out DNA hands-on in the timeline below. The dock being detailed and sold by Verizon Wireless isn’t actually made by HTC, and instead is a rather large platform based wireless charging dock by LG. The LG Dock will run users $59.99 and is compatible with the brand new HTC DROID DNA. Simply walk up and drop the phone right on the dock and you’re instantly charging. It’s a simple as that folks!
