HTC Incredible 2 makes its first appearance in Verizon’s internal system

The HTC Incredible 2 has just been spotted in Verizon’s internal system almost a year to the day after its predecessor. Before you get too excited, assuming you are prone to getting excited about the Incredible 2, keep in mind that the original Incredible didn’t launch for a little over two months after it made its first appearance in a similar screenshot.

It’s a safe bet that the Incredible 2 will at least borrow quite a bit from the already announced Incredible S, but whether it is in fact a carbon copy remains to be seen. One trait it hopefully doesn’t pick up from its overseas cousin is Android 2.2.

Here’s a quick refresher on the basic Incredible S specs:

  • 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8255 Processor
  • 768 MB Ram
  • 4″ Super LCD
  • 800 x 480
  • 8 MP rear camera with dual-LED flash (720p video capable)
  • 1.3 MP front facing camera
  • 1,450 mAh battery
  • Rotating capacitive buttons

That 4″ screen size seems to be the sweet spot for a lot of users, but is that going to be enough to sway people in the face of the 4G and dual-core options arriving soon on Verizon?

    I openly wish the Droid Incredible 2 the best.. Nice little bump in specs wish it was 4g… Looks like VERIZON is SEPERATING there 3g device from there 4g devices… IE… Droid Bionic and Htc Thunderbolt 4g devices vs Droid Incredible 2 and Droid X2 3g devices… Don’t know why they would want to do that??? Now the wait is for the HTC EVO 2 4G which should be announced at ctia march 22 as well as the Htc Pyramid for tmobile… Guess soon enough we will see… EVO RULES ANDROID

    rich ..i agree i have no idea why verizons doing that ? are they charging alot for 4g? and .mytouch owns evo !

    • http://Website eli

      Evo gets alot of spike but the mytouch 4g is a silent killer. Im with u on this one revs1227, the mt4g reaches speeds that the evo has never even dreamed of. Even the predecessor of the daddy of androids, the G2, has alot more to give than the evo. So what if it has a front facing camera, evo, ur on the wrong network. Yes sprint brought 4g to the market first, but he who gets the last laugh, as u all know.

    another high end device for verizon…

    Well, from what I have read, the 4G LTE on Verizon is supposed to be fairly expensive. With no unlimited 4G data plans. Hopefully, this is not the case.

    I love my Droid Incredible, shame the DroidInc 2 wont have a touch optical device like the OG DroidInc.

    I never understood why these manufacturers insist on putting “4g” in the phone’s name. “Evo 2 4G”. What a mouthful…jeez, we already know it does “4G”. >_>

    What are the dual core phone options available on verizon?

  • http://edwardrussellcole.org/blog R Cole

    I do not understand why these predecessors to 4G cannot be retrofitted with new modems. No one in customer service is knowlegeable enough to explain why my ne droidx cannot be fitted for 4G. I like this phone but 3G can be exasperating at times. I hope it is not a ploy to compell people to pay full price since they have no upgrade in the near future.

    Hate to break everyone’s heart but the bottom line here is… YOU WILL BOW DOWN TO THE GRANDDADDY OF 4G ANDROID DEVICES THE HTC EVO 4G… All these new UNPROVEN devices on these new UNPROVEN NETWORKS have so much TO PROVE. The current Evo is already proven for now 10months and it ushered in the 4g industry and has represented android with class and style and today is a CLASSIC just like a vintage 1960 ford mustang. Htc Evo 4g was the first and to this day still rains supreme. This device will forever be remembered and I am proud to own one.

      It’s a phone. Did you invent it? Did you do anything or are you just some chump who bought it?

      It won’t be remembered any more than any other phone in its era. Grow up and get a clue.

      you sir are a twat

      Take a close.look at the evo and the tbolt. Same phone! Just with different name and on a faster 4G network.I have friends on all carriers. I know u don’t want to believe that sprint isn’t all there but since Verizon has the lte its speeds almost double what other carriers seems to offer.

    While this story is good news for Optimus owners, I’m more pleased to see that it contains Taylor’s byline! Glad you’re back in action. :-)
