Is this the Incredible HD?

The picture above could very well be the Incredible HD or “HTC Mecha” that has been leading the ridiculous rumor mill around the interwebs over the last couple of weeks.  Twitter conversations by us and others have revealed a mixed bag of details, so try and hold strong.   If it is, then get ready for a device with a front facing camera, running the new Sense UI, and is 4G ready.  Yep, it sounds like a winner in our books.  We still have no idea if or when this bad boy will come out, but ignore the rumors suggesting a pre-order might happen tomorrow as it is still likely going through testing.

Nice of the tipster to leave off the search bar, so we can now start biting our nails over the thought of it being a Bing device.  Bah.

    What size is the screen?

    • kimir

      4.3″

  • mtkregs

    Sweet! Is that a Cylon eye on the top edge of the device?

  • gafrican

    I have been salivating over this phone ever since the first pics were posted here. I will cry if it has Bing and I won't go near it. Sad. But I am hoping for the best!

    • kimir

      look at the google maps icon…

  • InvaderDJ

    Hope to God this phone doesn't have unremovable Bing.

    I would get the Nexus S but im in love with the EVO and I want a similar device. This thing is sexy as hell. I almost made the switch over to Sprint just for the epic or evo

    This thing looks amazing, definitely replacing my D2 :P

  • Edwoordd

    it has google maps!! maybe no bing right! better not have bing :)

  • Adam

    Well if its the “Incredible HD” then it will be a “Droid” series phone meaning no Bing….i'd think!

  • PAKmann2k

    While I love my x that is rooted into plain ol vanilla android, I must admit that there are some actual features on the sense ui that I enjoy on my dinc. If they added the option of having a” vanilla no ui theme” I would be sold forever. I do like the option of having a more professional theme for work while also running a sunday game day theme and a good ol partying and wanna show off my phone theme fir other times. On my x, it is more set it and forget it. Just prefer some easy options or change.

  • Ohiwastedmylife

    It looks slightly different than the desire HD even, It looks like this does not have the same battery slide door to the right side and the SD/SIM card slide off on the bottom. hmm…

  • Gil

    Is it rooted yet? hahaha…jk

  • RLJSlick

    Is this the Incredible HD?
    no

    IS IT?
    yes

  • kimir

    It's got gmail, talk, and the Google maps icon so…

  • NMMI89

    I love my DINC. But I just gotta have this.

    • NMMI89

      ONLY if it has Google.

  • Qudwis

    guys which might be better??

    nexus2(nexusS) or incredible hd??

    • EC8CH

      If verizon is a requirement, the choice is quite simple

    • kimir

      htc all the way.

    • tommytmt

      Yeah right … you probably hate this phone! >:-(

  • Mysterion

    i want this phone

  • Trombone Dixie

    After seeing Samsung's design on the Nexus S, I'm definitely getting this device. Love my D-Inc, why wouldn't I upgrade to the Inc HD??? I just wish/hope it has a Dual Core Processor.

    OMG!!!!! I want it

  • brandon805

    Oh man! Is that 3G I see? Does this mean it will be 3G too? I really hope so… because 4G will be expensive.

    • Danstheman600

      that is clearly 4g sry.

    • KiriusKris

      It will be backward compatible with 3G. Not all areas will have 4G coverage.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      put on your glasses please :P jk

    • Anonymous

      you mean 4g? then 3g then 4g

  • memnoch73

    Question is… Is that a night rider eye bouncing back and forth near the top??? Ah-mazing!!! And is that the notification light?? Hmm…

    • ckeegan

      Exactly what I was thinking, and that would be badass.

    • Viper76269

      it's an led indicator. just static. not in motion

      • memnoch73

        How do you know?? Why would they put it so off center?? Why does it look slightly more blurry than the rest of the pic?? Because it's in motion?? Hmmm… :-)

        • EC8CH

          All we need is one more pic with the light not in the same position to confirm your theory.

        • Motta2003

          IMO, it’s off center because the speaker is to the right of the LED. So logically, I don’t think they could put a strip of LEDs across the whole opening and still have the audio work OK when trying to hold phone to your ear and talk.

        • Viper76269

          cause then there would be no speaker. too much dreaming going on here lol

    • Pnicuh

      now that's incredible…

    • EC8CH

      Now that would sell some phones

  • Destructivehippie

    I dont think itll have bing since its looking like it has the Google maps icon there on the bottom. If it was binged then it would have bing maps as well right?

    • tommytmt

      Agreed, I was thinking the same thing …

    • Calculatorwatch

      Hopefully so, although I suppose Gmail and Google maps can both be downloaded from the market so it’s not a definite answer.

      I really hope the Droid line is somehow (contractually?) tied to Google services and immune from all this Bing nonsense.

      • Anonymous

        But Google Search is only on 2.2 + devices. This is a sense device so who knows…

      • Anonymous

        google maps cannot if you have a bing phone

      • HGAFAF

        IF IT HAS GOOGLE TALK THEN IT IS GOOGLE BECAUSE IT IS NOT A MARKET APP

    • Anonymous

      Agreed. I will definitely not buy any phones that are ‘binged’ out. Go Google or go home.

    • HGAFAF

      IF IT HAS GOOGLE TALK THEN IT IS GOOGLE BECAUSE IT IS NOT A MARKET APP

  • KiriusKris

    OooO00OooooO! Look at the 4G icon above upload/download data arrows. Yummo!

    this looks pretty sweet, though I love my X, my next phone will be BLURless and SENSEless and LiTEd up

    so nice…

  • iBowToAndroid

    i wantz this phone!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *crosses fingers for no Bing*

    • Ksizzle9

      dont get me wrong as i have a nice little incredible that compliments my fascinate well. but i think im gonna hold off on spending another 600 dollars until something comes out that blows my fascinate out of the water, i know this is a SWEET phone and 4g is likely give me a semi, but my Sammy can still one up this with its GPU, the adreno 205 is way better than my adreno 200 or whatever is in my DInc but it still isnt as good as my fascinate GPU, waiting on dual core 4g, when the nexus s brings gingerbread to Galaxy S land ill skip froyo and go straight to gingerbread!!(iknow GSM isnt likeely compatible with CDMA but one can dream…and i love root, like tree loves root! woot woot

      • Ksizzle9isABitch

        Ksizzle9 ive seen you on xda forums…..where do you get your facts from??? The Adreno 205 is equal if not better than the gpu of the sammy!!!! I think your a complete idiot!!!

        Androidandme.com does a test of the 2. Jit does not play well with the sammy processor!!!

        • Ksizzle9isABitch-IsABITCH

          Mostly just wanted to make the username. Also wanted to mention that not knowing which of two GPUs is better (if you are in fact correct about that) does not make someone a complete idiot.

      • http://twitter.com/white_shadow001 Zach White

        Im not sure your phone could handle the gingerbread, not enough ram buddy. My girlfriend has the Fascinate and touchwiz doesn’t like to play well. Now on the other han take touchwiz off, free up some of that ram and you have yourself a badass little phone there…but nothing compaired to this DIncHD

  • Dsims91

  • Dredamanfoo2
