HTC and Verizon announced the Droid DNA, a new smartphone with the sharpest display on a mobile device.

The Droid DNA is the first smartphone capable of playing full 1080p HD video. It has a 5-inch screen, which is bigger than most smartphones. But HTC says it isn’t calling the DNA a tablet/smartphone combo like Samsung’s Galaxy Note II. This is a smartphone.

The Droid DNA will cost $199 with a two-year contract from Verizon. It goes on sale November 21 and you can pre-order it right now.
