Over the past few weeks we've shown you Verizon and HTC's Droid DNA (codenamed DLX) in the flesh, and we've covered various device leaks from other sources, too. But the shot above, which comes from prominent Twitter leaker @evleaks, could be our clearest look yet at the 5-inch handset. The promotional render shows the front face of the phone, complete with HTC Sense home screen and a very Verizony wallpaper. Like many HTC One series phones, it sports three capacitive keys -- back, home and task-switching, and the stylized earpiece can clearly be seen up top.

So now it seems highly that Verizon is getting its own version of the HTC J Butterfly, a Japanese handset sporting a quad-core Snapdragon S4 chip and a 5-inch, 1080p SuperLCD3 screen.

As for possible launch windows, early December seems likely. Next Tuesday we'll be in New York City for a joint Verizon-HTC event, where we're expecting to witness the phone's public unveiling.

This could be a killer handset for Verizon going into the holiday season. Anyone considering picking one up? Let us know down in the comments.
