Verizon makes HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE official
No more leaks for the carrier's 23rd LTE enabled handset
Published: 8 May, 2012
After an appearance at the FCC and a leaked render last month it was only a matter of time before the HTC Droid 4G LTE got official, and now it has. Verizon has announced the phone that will be arriving soon and as expected offering a decent line-up of specs. It's also going to be the 23rd device to support 4G LTE connectivity at the carrier bolstering an already strong range of devices and following on from the Droid Razr Maxx which was released earlier this year.
Underneath its 4" qHD LCD display the handset is packing a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM and a microSD card slot to expand the internal storage up to 32GB (actual built-in storage isn't specified). As well as this there's an 8mp rear-facing camera with an aperture of f/2.2, autofocus and a 28mm lens. NFC also makes the team, allowing users to take advantage of Android Beam, as does Beats Audio showing HTC's continued dedication to the integration of the feature.
Powering it all is a removable 1700mAh battery and it's going to ship running Android 4.0. For anyone planning on using it as a Wi-Fi hotspot it's possible for 10 devices to connect to it. Externally there's no surprises and it's a good looking handset with rounded edges, red accents and a textured back.
Verizon neglected to mention a price or a release date in the announcement, other than that it's going to go on sale in the "coming weeks". However it's rumoured to cost $299.99 on a contract which sounds about right for a new Droid handset. While it bears the Droid branding the specs are similar to the One X and One S which are available from AT&T and T-Mobile and should offer a viable if potentially more expensive alternative to those devices for HTC fans at Verizon.
