HTC Vigor photo shoot confirms 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 720p HD display, LTE and more

This upcoming holiday season will be defined by a few select devices. The iPhone will no doubt snag its fair share of customers on whatever carriers it lands. But there will be an impressive portfolio of Android devices launching on all carriers that will most certainly give any iDevice a run for its money. The next Nexus is slated to come out soon, quite possibly rocking very similar specs to the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S II LTE HD. The Bionic has already landed. All the Galaxy S II variants will undoubtedly do great once they come out. And then there’s the HTC Vigor.

The Vigor is HTC’s newest masterpiece. It features all the latest and greatest features you could want in a phone, along with that signature HTC quality fans have come to know and love. Today, some new pictures of the Vigor have found their way online, confirming all the specs that, until now, have been only rumors.

Against the already released and upcoming super-phones of Q3/Q4 2011, the Vigor more than holds its own. With a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, today’s leaked pictures reveal that the Vigor will be rocking Verizon’s 4G LTE network, along with a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 720p HD display, a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, an 8 megapixel rear camera, Android 2.3.4 and HTC Sense 3.5. Other slightly less confirmed specs include 1 GB of RAM and Beats Audio. That information comes from a leaked RUU torn apart by HDBlog.

As far as how the device looks, a dark chrome bezel on the front will be contrasted against a textured rubber-like battery door. There’s also lots of red (the speaker grill and camera bezel) and black to be found, as expected from a Verizon branded HTC device.

Unfortunately, we still don’t know exactly when this thing will launch. Or the release name. Incredible HD sounded good for awhile, but a recent leak points toward Verizon releasing the HTC Rezound very shortly. Whatever the final name or launch date is, do you plan to pick one up? Anything already disappointing or exciting you? Let us know in the comments below.
