Let’s be honest for a second here. Not everyone is all gaga for the Verizon branded Nexus/Droid/Galaxy Prime. Whether it’s due to a hatred for Samsung or loyalty to another company, not everyone is going to rush out and buy one. If you’re a fan of Motorola, then you’ve no doubt been drooling over, or cradling, a brand new Bionic. If you’re a fan of HTC devices, then the Vigor has to be the phone you’re waiting for.
While we still don’t have a ton of solid information on the Vigor, one thing is for sure: it’s going to come out rocking Big Red’s 4G LTE network. A mysterious HTC device has just passed through the FCC with LTE intact, and there’s very good reason to believe it’s the Vigor. Not only are there no other big name HTC devices coming out for Verizon anytime soon, but the model number in the FCC filing (PH98100, ADR6425) lines up perfectly with the model number given to the Vigor in Bluetooth and WiFi certification documents.
As far as other rumored specs on the Vigor go, we’re looking at an absolute entertainment powerhouse. A 1.5 GHz dual-core processor is expected to power a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 HD display, Sense 3.5 atop Android 2.3.4, Beats by Dre audio and multiple cameras for all your photography needs. As pointed out by DroidLife, Beats by Dre audio may just mean the Vigor will launch with a pair of Beats headphones. A set of those paired with what could be a non-Pentile HD display (the Prime’s SAMOLED HD is Pentile), and you’ve got the best combination of audio and video power available in a handset today.
The rumored release date of the HTC Vigor is October 6th; just under a month away. How about it Verizon users? Does the Vigor sound like your cup of tea, or are you waiting to see how the Prime plays out?
