Verizon Droid Incredible 4G LTE gets official, packs quite a bit into a 4-inch shell


Verizon may not have announced or released any devices from the HTC One series, but that doesn't mean they don't have a different new HTC devices for us. We've seen the HTC built Droid Incredible 4G leak a couple of times before, and now the device is finally official as Verizon's latest addition to its lineup of Android smartphones. 

Specification wise, the smartphone is pretty much identical to the one leaked on the DroidDoes site a little while ago. As expected, the Incredible 4G will bring to the table a 4-inch Super LCD display of the qHD (960 x 540) resolution, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP camera with 1080p video and VGA front camera, LTE, and a 1,700mAh battery. The software powering the device is, fortunately enough, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which will come with Sense 4, the same version shipping with the HTC One series.

While it's certainly no One X, the Droid Incredible 4G is no weak contender. In fact, it looks much like a variant of the One S meant for Verizon. It shares the same dual-core processor, screen resolution, 8MP camera, and OS, which should end up making it quite similar to the international version. The one big difference is the somewhat small 4-inch display on the Incredible compared to the 4.3-inch panel on the One S, but there are actually many users who prefer smaller displays. It actually makes sense for HTC to produce a device with a slightly smaller display, as the rush for massive 4.7 and 5.3-inch phones seems to have left those who want a smaller high-end phone out of luck. For these users, the Droid Incredible 4G will be perfect fit, and appears to be a very solid mid-high end smartphone.
