We’re eagerly anticipating the launch of the HTC Deluxe, the international version of the recently-launched Droid DNA.
The device, presuming its hardware is identical to its U.S. counterpart, will have a 5-inch 1080p Super LCD3 screen, 2GB of RAM, 16-32GB of internal storage, an 8MP camera with ImageSense, LTE connectivity, a 2020mAh battery and, of course, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4+.
While these new press shots expose the multi-colour scheme of the upcoming device, it does little to further our knowledge of when, and for how much, the Deluxe will be available. We’re sure, with the impending release of the HTC One X+ in Canada, the Taiwanese company is in no rush to undermine its current flagship’s place in the market.
That being said, we know of at least one other 5-inch 1080p device coming in the coming months, specifically Sony’s Yuga, though it may not actually arrive in Canada until next summer, if history is any indication.
We’ve also heard that the Droid DNA has some battery issues, likely due to the many LEDs needed to power such a pixel-dense LCD display. If the Deluxe does come to Canada, we’re hoping that HTC sees fit to increase its battery size, even at the expense of some extra girth.
