Well, looks like the Verizon-bound HTC superphone we thought would be called the DLX will actually be called the Droid DNA - a pass-through under the FCC microscope makes the phone as official as it gets. Also, evleaks tweeted two pictures rumored to be press photos for the device on Friday and Saturday. What else does the FCC inspection reveal about the Mother of All Droids?
First, the obvious information we would expect from an FCC report: supported frequencies, which indicate which carrier it's bound for. The device which passed the FCC's test under the SKU HTC6435LVW (apparently the US-specific SKU for the Droid DNA) supports Verizon's CDMA2000 BC0 and BC1 bands and LTE band 13, with GSM 850/1900 MHz bands thrown in for global compatibility.
The full list of anticipated specs can be found here, but the ones you'll likely be the most interested in are the quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro and the 5-inch 1920x1080 SLCD3 display. Also, the device is expected to ship in December with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage (a 32 GB version might also become available).
Aside from specs, the big question is whether we will be able to root and install custom ROMs on this beast of a device. HTC is expected to have a bootloader unlock tool as usual, but there is no word of any possible S-Off solution. By comparison, Verizon's last "premium" HTC phone, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE was released on July 5 and there is still no publicly available S-Off tool. Apparently S-Off has been achieved though, and is awaiting further stability testing prior to being released. Nevertheless, a custom ROM was posted here in RootzWiki (albeit in alpha form at the time) within a week of the Droid Incredible 4G LTE's release. I wouldn't be surprised to see a custom ROM available for the Droid DNA before the holidays, or at least by the time the new year's bowl games are over.
