Incredible HD Gets a New Head Shot

That folks, is what we all believe to be the Incredible HD and as you can see from the picture, is indeed running on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.  Now, there weren’t any doubts that this device would be headed to Big Red, but that icon in the top left corner for the My Verizon app definitely helped solidify everything.  And don’t be surprised if pictures of this device start leaking out by the minute as we get closer and closer to an official unveiling at CES in 2 weeks.

Who’s buying?  (/me raises hand.)

    As long as I can root this and make sure their will be no Bing then forget the Dell Venue Pro I pre-ordered.

  • cant wait till august 2011, thats when i have my next upgrade. 😛

  • asianrage

    Give this phone a dual core processor, please!!!!

    • r u stupid this is not a pc dumbshit

      • asianrage

        Disregarding your immature attitude, I guess you missed the memo from LG regarding the Optimus 2X. Oh well.

  • 1T2dirtnap

    It will be compatible 3G+4GLTE. There is no way Verizon is releasing this phone in a month (or less) and be 4GLTE only! C-mon guys use some sense! LOL. I'm also betting 2.3 will be on at launch.


    Me, im buying!!!

  • einstn2k1

    I'm getting it…can't wait for a Tegra proc phone…need to ditch my BB Storm NOW. I've been waiting since Oct! This would be an ideal late Xmas gift!

    • NKTizzle

      This is not a a Tegra proc phone.

  • Br_hermon

    Does anyone notice the battery meter is the old one (<2.3) rather than the gingerbread? Just thought it was interesting. Surely this thing is launching with Gingerbread…. right?

    • MOTOX

      u forget, thats sense….

  • luigi90210

    Why do people want a dual core device, what could you possibly be doing that requires that much cpu power. Imo ill stick with a single core device, one core means better battery life.

  • I'll keep iving in my dream world, where Verizon, Google, and Motorola are introducing the Droid Nexus, a Tegra 2, 4GLTE capabilities, and an unlocked boot loader. It also makes a mean frap.

  • Sethish17

    Im getting it!

  • JohnPA2006

    I see the FFC on the top front edge, NICE !
    This or the Etna will be my next phone.
    Still rocking my Motorola DROID until then.

  • kimir

    i thought we already knew that…

  • dman244

    Weird they don't have a signal meter for the 4G, like on the EVO. I wonder how that's gonna work.

  • rdrizzle

    The goose pimples just ran up my arm…that 4GLTE icon is sweet!

  • viewthis66

    as long as its 4G (which we can see it is), no slide out keyboard, 4″ + screen and a Tegra 2 processor, and forward facing camera for face chat… i believe i'm looking at my new phone.

    • NKTizzle

      It's not a Tegra 2.

      • viewthis66

        well then its not my new phone 🙂 thanks for the info.

  • Jager07

    What OS is that?

  • what are the specs on this? are we still using the old snapdragon ?

    • NKTizzle

      It's running a MSM8655.

  • BigFonz

    I want only if I can use it on 3g.

    • NKTizzle

      Why wouldn't you be able to?

  • looks like an awesomely constructed phone! is it going to have sense built in? how 'locked' is it going to be? man i could go on forever..

    but i dont want to leave my OG droid i feel like a parent turning in a child to a foster home :'( lol

  • Blkrabb1t

    I'm surprised that verizon didn't put their ugly logo on the phone. I'll buy it if it has dual core processors, but I think I'd rather have some Tegra power in my next phone.

    • NKTizzle

      It's not dual core.

    friends don't let friends use bing

    • Anonymous

      The problem isn’t Bing itself, Bing is a pretty decent app. The problem is with Verizon forcing Bing on us and giving us no other option. I wouldn’t mind Bing if it was just preinstalled and able to be uninstalled without any rooting hijinks necessary.

  • Steve H

    Who's tenting here folks?

  • Bmtbandit

    Looks nice, would Love LTE, but can't do anything till they come out with a LTE, CDMA, GSM World. I some how think thats going to be awhile

  • Are there currently any contenders for LTE VZW phones with HW keyboards?

  • dellbx

    Looks like I will be replacing my Droid X pretty soon….

  • Franzie3

    I'm a loyal DInc owner and love the HTC feel . But i do not need an Incredible HD if the only thing incredible about it is a front facing camera and a bigger screen…although it is a huge improvement.

    Personally, slap one of those dual core tegra 2 processors in there, clock it up at 1.2ghz stock, keep the original AMOLED screen, put a nice juicy battery in it and i am sold.

    Then again we will know all that is first half 2011 come CES…

  • ok i hope thats a front facing camera and not led. and is the phone scratched up under the speaker ??????????????????????????

    • ABerry5

      front facing camera is to the right, LED is apart of the speaker inlet directly to the left (if you've ever seen any current HTC phone and where the LED is on those you know what i'm talking about)

      • incredible doesn’t have it on the speaker buddy!

  • Romma1

    looks nice so far. I want to see it in person. I wish it would have the same overall dims as my Dinc. I really do not want a bigger or thicker phone.

  • what are the specs? I need to decide if i'm going the tablet or smartphone route…hmmmmmmmmm

  • big papa


    • Timmah

      Thats a little scary.


    Hey Kellex! Love the site my man, have been a huge follower for a long time now…. Based on the information that we have now, and you HAD to choose between the rumored Motorola Etna or the rumored Incredible HD, which would you choose, and why? Both of these devices seem out of this world… so just wanted to hear an expert opinion. Thanks, Adam

    • kellex

      As of right now, I would probably go with the new Incredible. I love the feel of HTC devices and also like the fact that they don't lock their devices down with ridiculous amounts of security. But who knows, maybe Motorola will come around in 2011 and be nice again. 🙂

      • DMBatCOFC

        Awesome, thanks for the reply! Hope that you have a great Holiday season!

  • Ilhe1s

    If the spec's are right this will be my next device!

  • It's either this or the Moto device, depends which one is more locked

  • dual core?

  • So these 4g phones can be used with 3g too right? Like if i bought this and stayed on my 3g plan, i could still use it?

    • You have to pay for 4g, it’s not an option. It will still work on 3g, but you’ll be paying for 4g.

    • Keithsmnr

      It would be pretty pointless, It'd be like buying a wii to only play gamecube games.

      • Bigrob60

        Not really. If all the Tegra 2 phones are 4g and you can get on the 3g pricing plan I would do that. I want Tegra 2, not 4G. If they have both 4g & 3g Tegra 2’s I’d go w/ 3g then version then. The potentail cost of 4g really turns me off to it.

      • Bullet Tooth Tony

        So you're saying the only difference would be using a real controller?

        • …. more like purchasing an HDTV and never getting the actual HD.

      • LOL I do that! LOZ: Wind Waker FTW!!!

        Though, I do play the Wii games too.

        • Keithsmnr

          Lol me too, I have about 30 wii games and 30 cube games

    • Good Question.

    • kellex

      Not 100% sure on that, but pretty sure that is the case.

    • I believe that Verizon will NOT let you buy a 3G only plan with any of their 4G LTE phones. You're going to be on their 4G network regardless and will be locked into their new tiered price points or, 5GB = $50.00/mo

      • NKTizzle

        $50/mo is for the BBA plans, not smartphones.

        Smartphone 4G pricing hasn’t been released yet.

      • tiptoptommy

        what if there isnt any 4g service in your area can you still buy a 4g phone in anticipation of that coming and will it still work on a 3g network untill 4g is implimented in your area? Just covering some left out bases for anyone who may want to know

        • Anonymous

          I believe it will work with 3G as well, just as 3G phones work with 2G

    • Timoh

      Yeah they will still have 3g and base service accessibility. They probably will make you sign up for lte if its a contract renewall. You could just buy it straight out though. And no its not like any of those other analogies. There's more upgrades to the phone than just an lte radio.

  • dima

    I'm not buying any new phones until we have a confirmed unlocked bootloader and successful custom ROMs. Provided thats the case, I'll probably buy this to replace my Droid X. I want cyanogen…

    • Christopher

      Why don’t you have an incredible?

    • Keithsmnr

      This is why I love my Droid and haven't upgraded to anything else 🙂

      • El El Kool J

        very well said Keithsmnr I couldnt agree more.. 🙂

    • AMEN!!!!! Droid X is pretty much a fail…. hardware is nice but on every other aspect it’s a failure

      • Anonymous

        Hardly, replace blur with LauncherPro and it’s one of the best phones around.

  • Sparking22

    its looking like a bad ass phone!
