Normally we try to avoid rumors here, mostly due to the fact that they often turn up as busts. But every once in a while, a leak comes along that is so solid it’s virtually unavoidable. For an extremely brief amount of time recently, typing in www.droiddoes.com/droidincredible4g would take you to a product page for the rumored—but unannounced—HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE for Verizon. Verizon and HTC have both failed to provide us with an announcement or confirmation of any kind, but considering that this is from the official Droid portal, I think it’s safe to say that we will be seeing it out soon.
No release date was given, but a “buy it now” button was prominently featured, so it is reasonable to expect it soon. Pricing was set at $299.99—Verizon’s highest on-contract smartphone price point—and the specs provided point to a kissing cousin of the top of HTC’s One line. The screen is a 4-inch qHD Super LCD beauty, most likely covered in Gorilla Glass. The dual-core processor clocks in at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM is onboard, as are 8GB of internal storage, an 8MP camera—likely the high-end hardware from the One series—and the usual remaining assembly of accoutrements. HTC’s Sense 4.0 was listed, so obviously this is a Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone, albeit with heavy HTC customizations.
Personally, from what I’ve seen, I’d prefer a HTC One X. But that, sadly, cannot be had on Verizon’s LTE, so what is a guy to do? Hope that this phone does share camera and processor types with the One X, and scrounge for a way to pay for it, that’s what! Though I’m not sure if it’s enough to dethrone Big Red’s LTE kings, the Nexus and the RAZR MAXX.
