HTC today announced the Droid DNA smartphone, the first U.S. smartphone to feature a 1080p screen resolution. The announcement came during today’s joint Verizon/HTC event.

The Droid DNA will have a five-inch display, a 1.5Ghz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 2020mAh battery, and 16GB of internal storage. The device will also come with built-in wireless charging technology, NFC support, and, of course, 4G LTE wireless. The rear camera is 8MP and the front-facing camera is 2.1MP, featuring an “ultra-wide-angle” lens.

The Droid DNA will be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but, like the HTC One X+, it will have HTC’s Sense 4.0+ UI software running on top of Google’s OS. Being an HTC device, the smartphone will also come with Beats-branded audio.

Pre-orders for the Droid DNA start today through Verizon. The device will be hitting stores on November 21.

HTC is touting the HD screen for “superior graphics during a game.” To show off the screen, the Droid DNA will get access to Reign of Amira, a hack n’ slash game created by Qualcomm to showcase the graphical capabilities of its Snapdragon S4 processors.

    I have a Droid DNA and it is one of the best phones that I’ve owned. The 1080p display is unmatched by any other phone screen, plus LTE helps a lot with streaming. I love using the DISH Remote Access app on my phone; it lets me stream live TV anywhere I am through the Sling Adapter that’s connected to my receiver. One of my DISH coworker’s also has a Droid DNA, and they love it. We both agree that watching shows on it is brilliant.
