Furthermore, the device’s front panel sports a 2.1MP ultra-wide angle webcam with Auto Portrait and the ability to capture 1080p high definition videos.

Muck like a number of other HTC phones, it has been blessed with an advanced 8MP rear snapper which boasts of a f/2.0 28mm wide-angle lens, a BSI sensor, automatic flash, auto focus, continuous shooting and HTC VideoPic to click images while recording videos. Besides Beats Audio for studio-quality sound, the Droid DNA is integrated with a 2.55 volt headset amplifier and a dedicated amp to keep users entertained on the move.

The Global Ready handset has been deployed with NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi, while it can even act as a mobile hotspot to share its 4G LTE network speed with as many as 10 compatible devices. It ships with 16GB internal memory and draws power from a non-removable 2020mAh lithium-ion battery that can cough up the juice for usage time of 12.8 hours on a single charge.
