New HTC Verizon Device Appears, Is it a Tablet or the Incredible 2?

What on Earth is that?  One of the new buttonless HTC devices headed to Verizon has found a home on the internet, only we have no idea what it is.  The fact that it’s buttonless suggests that it could be one of their mini-tablets and will run Honeycomb, but since we know the Incredible 2 is in the works, we’re starting to wonder if this is it.  We had heard that the Inc2 would be a bigger screened version of the old one and since this mysterious device is sitting next to an old Incredible, maybe this is actually it?

Oh and when you see the back plate after the break, you’ll really jump on this notion.  

So, what are you thinking right now?

    From what I can see, it looks like it will be rolling with a 4inch, my guess SuperAMOLED display, instead of a regular AMOLED display, and the “Butons” are capacitive, like the original incredible, and no, this is not a tablet, it is a phone. I also want to say it is sticking witht he 8MP camera with 720p video cause I am guessing aswell that the tech isnt there for 1080p yet (but I could be wrong, maybe in android 3.1?) Just some ideas…. And also, I am sure they will repalce “With HTC Sense” with “With Google”

    I think it looks super sleek, but why are DROIDs getting more and more rounded edges? What initially attracted me to the phones before I looked at the specs on VZW is their harsher, more square edges. The roundness takes away from their unique aesthetics …

  • Definitely the Incredible 2 considering the fact that it’s the same size as that Incredible right next to it

    This has to be the Inc2 if it was their tab wouldn’t the back of it say “with HTC Sensation” their newly coined terms for tabs, instead of “With HTC Sense” like the phone does.

  • Looks like a knock off eyePhone 3GS to me. Remove the verizon logo, add a single button at the bottom and bam. U have an eyePhone.

  • this looks good really cool, but the thunderbolt is going to be next phone.

    Whatever it is… its going to be in my pocket when it comes out

  • Now the real question here is FFC/ Duel Core?

  • El_R

    from the front it’s simply an ipod touch.

  • phandroid reported that there is no ffc that sucks and with brother and sisters all over the country thats a deal breaker for me

    Come ONNNNNNN DUAL CORE!!

    OMG yes I want it, I really really want it

    Noise cancellation mics on the back?

  • Uncle paul

    Finally a Camera big enough to actually allow a usable amount of light in!

    So sick of motorola, I hope this is a dual core inc2 if so I’m down for one since my DX upgrade is ready in march.

    god damn there way 2 many phones coming out witch is good for business but suck if your in a contract

  • EC8CH

    From this photo it at least has the appearance of quality (ie doesn’t look cheap)

    Which is a problem with the Dinc.

  • Mke236

    There are probably buttons, you just cant see them unless the phone is in awake mode. Nice

  • I think the Sense part gives it away as a phone, isn’t the tablet supposed to be using “Sensation” instead of plain old Sense?

  • tehshift

    Thunderwhat? Possible phone running honeycomb?!? I hope they start listing more information about these phones soon! I dont want to make an impulse decision and buy a phone prematurely with all these around the corner!

  • Dadoblade

    I am hoping the screen on the TWINC (phrase officially coined) is not larger that 4 inches. That will be a deal breaker for me. I want a 4″ screen that is not made by Samsung.

  • Anthony

    Maybe I can only see it cuz of the way I’m tilting my phone and see the different contrasts in the photo but I clearly see 4 blacked out spots where the buttons go. This is clearly a Photoshop.

  • Dr.jekyll

    Did anyone notice there is no “with Google” on the back plate on the lower right corner as it used to be on DINC???
    I guess this one comes preloaded with Bing as the default search engine.

    • Anonymous

      Early test builds sometimes lack Google branding. The Thunderbolt used to say “with HTC Sense” when it was first leaked.

  • Djyosnow

    Odd looks like my DINC 1…i hope honeycomb comes to any newer phone oh say my DINC!?!?!!

    Someone was so excited they yanked the usb cable out of the port and bent it.

    Confirmed 3.7′ super AMOLED screen

      bull.

    • Anonymous

      The site where this device was leaked to referred this device as:

      “Dream about this R & D, code-named vivo, 4-inch S-LCD (Sony panel), a front lens
      Is still Android 2.2.1, and equipped with the Sense UI with Desire HD / Z little difference
      This can be said that the next generation of Incredible” Roughly translated

      You can tell its 4″ and at this point SLCD is obvious. Super Amoled is exclusively Samsung, and Amoled is too low in inventory to meet HTC’s inventory currently.

      Side note, it seems he claims a front facing camera. Wouldn’t that indicate 4G? I hope it does have a ffc, but is just 3G.

  • Incredible 2 and looks sleek

  • Anonymous

    actually the batter seems to be bigger, oh btw this is twInc. huge camera, minimalist but open speaker hole, made from that rubbery plastic, thats shaped to the device/design. theres no way its not the twInc…btw will be my next phone =D

    • Anonymous

      the twInc – y

    • Anonymous

      It looks more sleek and looks like it uses the same materials as the Thunderbolt, which is praised for a great high end feel. We’ll see how this phone will fare. I’m always saying “this is my next phone”, but if HTC plays their cards right, it just might be. lol.

  • Joe

    If that’s a tablet then that’s the biggest usb power cord I’ve ever seen.

    • thats the part that goes into the computer, not the phone lol.

      • Joe

        …I know.

        He’s saying that, using that plug for scale, it isn’t a very large tablet.

  • Anonymous

    just guessing but that camera looks like its gona be like 12 megapixels!

    • SetNick

      I sure hope so. Would love to get rid of my point and shoot!

      • Shaddixboggs

        No no no! Nobody needs 12MP camera on a phone. In fact the size of the sensors on the phones do not lend them to more than 5 megapixels. 5 megapixel camera will make better photos than a 12 megapixel camera if they have the same sensor size/lens etc…..

  • no 4G, no go. bionic is still the creme de la creme

    • Lane

      creme de la creme? Thats the Atrix, and we don’t get it. Incredible 2 will have the ram to match the processor. even the Thunderbolt has more ram than the Bionic. Give me a dual core, 1 gig ram, two cameras, 1080p video. And I’ll just take an HTC this time with no locked bootloader.

  • iThinkBizTech

    with an additional front facing camera, a bigger screen, Honeycomb and a 1.5 SnapDragon or dual core engine …the Inc2 would be hard to beat.

    • palomosan

      It has a front camera at least, that’s a good start, we’ll see about the rest of Specs.

    • they said it didnt have a ffc

  • Kevoskee

    no doubt I can say incredible 2. The back pretty much says it all. Just missing the optional mouse tracker from the original dinc

  • Incredible

  • Mke236

    This is definately the Incredible 2. Looks a lot better than the original. Now I would consider it as long as it has dual core and front facing with limited sense.

    • Vire

      Rooting and flashing a custom ROM can get rid of the sense easily enough. The dual core proc and front facing camera are a different story.

    i think i see buttons…capacitive ones on the bottom

    • Anonymous

      The buttons have to be there right? They just cant be seen unless the phone is on, which is HOT.

      • Anonymous

        indeed

      • thats kind of what im thinking. why waste all that space on the bottom?

        • Bigdav1178

          I’m thinking most likely capacitive buttons that only show when illuminated.

        yeah, im going to try my best not to upgrade until 2 years is up

    what is it 4.5, 4.3…

    • Anonymous

      4.5 would be amazing. por favor!

  • Rocktoonz

    way too small for a tablet, could be the newly dubbed TwInc or another device altogether, but pairing in the photo with a DInc definitely suggests TwInc.

  • Anonymous

    Yea. Defiantly shaping up as a Incredible 2 at a nice 4 inches. Perfect size imo.

    Heres to hoping better battery life. Android 2.3, and a better processor.

      i got the inc, after rooting and a kernel from ziggy, my batt life out lasts most other smartphones.

    But does it have 4g capability? that is the main question

        more like, dual-core…

  • I’m thinking that this better have a lot extra than my DInc for me to even consider getting it…

  • I have to agree, especially with the back. My vote is that its Incredible 2.

    I vote for Incredible Two… which I will hereafter call the TwInc.

      Obviously. With that back and it being only slightly larger than the Incredible (original) I highly doubt this is even a mini-tablet. (For my Incredible size reference, just look at the first picture on the right. Also, it may have capacitive buttons that are just hard to see, not necessarily non-existent).
