HTC to announce the Rezound (Vigor) November 3rd?

htc-rezound-invite-nyc

Recently HTC has been sending invitations to an event in New York on November 3. We don’t know with exactitude what this is about, but the event will be somehow related to Beats Audio. We’re still waiting for HTC/Verizon to announce the HTC Rezound (aka Vigor), and it seems like this could be the day it is unveiled.

This is nothing but rumor and speculation, so don’t hold your breath just yet. But it definitely seems like the most feasible device to be announced, since it’s rumored to be announced in the beginning of November. For now, let’s wait and see what HTC has prepared for us.

If you need a refresher, the HTC Rezound’s specs makes it quite the beast. This bad boy is rumored to come packed with a dual-core processor (probably up to 1.5 GHz), 1 GB of RAM and a 720p HD display.

Doesn’t seem like a bad competitor against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and we’re definitely looking forward to its announcement. Do you think people would choose it over the first Ice Cream Sandwich device? Who is considering buying the HTC Rezound (Vigor)?

    I would (and am) definitely consider buying this device for a couple of reasons. Samsung nexus doesn’t have expandable memory. RAZR doesn’t have replaceable battery. Both of those are deal breakers for me.

    It sounds like the rezound will have impressive specs, but the real issue is when it will get ICS and how they will implement sense on ICS. Still, I’m looking forward to hearing about it, even though I’d probably rather go with the Nexus.

    • Anthony

      If they don’t you can bet the devs will have it out as soon as possible, possibly integrated with sense even. I’m with Ben though on the battery and expandable memory and the reason I’m shying away form the Razr as good as that hardware will be. I’ve been a sense user since I got my DINC 1 on launch and the developer support has been amazing in its older age.

      Plus Beats is very appealing for a music lover such as myself :) Either way, for those of us able to upgrade next month; it’s gonna be a merry holiday indeed!

    I would have to see each device review in order to make a decision if I was on version

  • hinds

    I was thinking of holding my breath but I remembered. A) I’m in canada and b) I love ics and want to get it right away. Galaxy Nexus for me when it launches north. Ics HTC phones are gonna be epic.all screen and buttonless :)

  • Darmen

    With both this and the RAZR filling Verizon’s holiday window, why would they fight for exclusivity of the nexus?

  • Black Kristos

    My wife is going to dump her iPhone for this or the Nexus. Me, it’s Nexus all the way.

  • aj

    Mmmmmm. It’s hard to say. As was mentioned earlier the rezound sounds like it’s almost the perfect combination when choosing between the Razar and Galaxy nexus(removable battery and the expandable storage) but A. It won’t ICS(I know it might but it has sense and I don’t want ics sense). B. Htc has been notorious for battery life. So as usual ill wait for reviews on all 3 phones and see what happens.

    Problem is when will it get IceCream sandwich? HTC has been slow in updating devices.

    • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

      HTC may seem like they take their time to update their phones, but they have a much better track record than all other manufacturers.

  • Slith

    Gotta go with the Nexus and its ICS. I’ve been through three Thunderbolts since May. Lost a lot of faith in HTC.

  • sylar

    Whoa who needs that much processing power in a phone? I have a dual core in mine and I never even had problems with my single core one. Just needed a new phone and it was a good deal at the time.

  • Lamar

    If it doesn’t have Ice Creme Sandwich then I will go with the Nexus

  • sap26

    Despite the specs, these phones just don’t compare without ICS. But I would definitely buy this over the RAZR. I would prefer the build quality of HTC over Moto plus I’ve been eager to try Beats out.

  • sleepycat

    The question also remains as to whether or not the Rezound has a locked bootloader like the Razr.

    • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

      It may have a locked bootloader, but HTC has been releasing their bootloader unlock tool for all their new devices via htcdev.com It’s not a perfect solution, but it’s much more than what Moto has been offering lately.
