Droid DNA Plus release, Verizon’s answer to HTC M7

There’s no denying that the HTC M7 is the next big handset and no doubt many of you will be wanting to get one the moment your carrier allows. The problem here is that not all carriers will be stocking this smartphone, with Verizon being one of them, which to us was a real shock. However, news of the Droid DNA Plus release could be Verizon’s answer to the HTC M7.

If we are to believe the latest rumor then the M7 could get a new name on Big Red and be re-branded as the DLXPLUS instead, something that we have seen happen time and again with other handsets. However, until we get official confirmation this could be an entirely different handset, but those specs do look the same as the M7.

While the specs may be the same there’s no getting away from the fact that Verizon could have shot themselves in the foot with the name because Droid DNA DLXPLUS doesn’t roll off the tongue and sound so cool as M7; it’s like a codename for a spy and not a motorway in England.

It’s clear that in terms of the M7 specs there does seem to be something overlooked by HTC, and that is expandable memory. This could be a deciding factor and force potential buyers into the arms of another handset, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is said to be released as early as April, just a month behind the HTC M7.

February 19 is said to be the magic date when the M7 will be announced and should be released on March 8, although we’re not too certain if the DLXPLUS will share the same release date.
