DROID Incredible 2 Boot Animation Reveals Official Specs

Our buddy @IRONMatt14 has been digging through the Incredible 2 system dump that’s in the wild and stumbled upon its boot animation which all but confirms every major spec on the device.  Now, I know that we sort of already have the specs since this device is essentially just the Incredible S that’s available in Europe, but it’s nice to see them on display through the real device.  We also get another confirmation that the phone will be “global”, which is news we broke back in January.

So what do we have?  

  • 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor (same as the Thunderbolt)
  • 8MP camera with dual-Xenon flash
  • 4″ WVGA TFT display
  • 768MB RAM
  • TI audio chip with surround sound
  • Global
  • Wireless charging

We have to assume at this point that the Incredible 2 is just weeks away.  To see a finalized boot animation with DROID eye in-tact, you know it’s close.  Plus, we saw it show up in a Best Buy system just days ago which is never a bad sign.  It’s almost exactly the same as the Thunderbolt but has a slightly smaller screen and no 4G LTE radio; it is global though, and probably a lot lighter.  I’ve been saying this for weeks now – if you are not in a 4G area and won’t be any time soon, this is a device you should be considering.

And here is that new boot animation in action on a DROID X:  (download)

    Does anyone know the ETA of this phone? My girl just lost her phone and it was stolen from where it was lost (smh) last night and she wants this phone but doesnt want to wait to long for it. Shes not worried about 4G but wants a phone that shes familiar with (i take it she means htc sense) and since i got the Thunderbolt on release date this only seems right. Plus im leaving the military late this month and with cell phones now allowed in BC a ffc is def. a must. (guys get where i was goin with that lol). But if anyone knows the release date it would greatly help. thanks

    as someone that has been looking for a good Global Android phone and could care less about 4g coverage rt now…i’m very interested in this phone.

  • Collinc0162

    Y’all should be proud looks like they’ve included the droid life emblem in the boot animation as well!

  • Weapondrift

    why does it load Motorola…but then HTC?

    • http://www.filepile.org/openid/stew560 Stew560

      Because they installed the Inc2 Animation onto a Droid X

    This will be the phone to hold me over till my area gets LTE goodness. By then, LTE phones will be really sweet.

    i remember when i would have been stoked for this phone…barely

  • Nebraska580

    can someone post the stock wallpapers for this phone so we can get them. i cant seam to get the downloading files and things right…

  • Shaneo13

    Wow! What a fail. This phone better be priced less than a $100. There are some phones out that have been out for 6 months with comparable specs.

  • drinksprite

    What’s the point of these phones? HTC sending out the same phone after the same phone.

      Even although selecting winter moncler coats, perhaps collectively using moncler boots, do not forget- there does exist one specific popular idea to the wide variety of all equipments; they need to fulfill most with the sensible functions. The  moncler jackets for men are developed more than protecting you from the cold, but additionally it is eye-catching designs to display the other people the fabric, designs, and your figure. The fabric would after result during the moncler jackets is needed to resist weather conditions during the area as properly as the areas you take up residence. A incredibly superior wintertime moncler outlets must have the ability to tolerate solid really agitates and might preferably come to be water resistant.The following thing being aware of although picking out winter period coats for girls, males and boys and girls as well can be the pastime which you will need to operate with moncler doudounes jacket.

    this looks like a good 1 yr option… tbolt is 320 on 1yr contract since this will still be 3G it should be less right? next year the real LTE phones come out…might be wise to remain on 3G until the dual core real LTE phones are ready not the rushed stuff this year

    • Cwpit81

      Or just get an LTE device now to be grandfathered in to 30 dollar unlisted plan

      • Cwpit81

        Unlimited* sorry getting used to my thunderbolt

      • Dodgesityballer

        Exactly! i cant agree with you more….with the Thunderbolt lacking a dual-core processor the chance to lock in unlimited 4G for 2 years or until you renew your contract and the unlocked bootloader was enough to convince me to get it.

    Why are these phones being released with old SoCs? the MSM8655 is a joke. It’s a 45nm 4G QSD8650 with tweaked graphics. Hell, the QSD8650 is just a CDMA version of the QSD8250, which debuted in 2009 with the HD2.

    So why do we care again? The Thunderbolt and Incredible 2 both use SoCs that have only been tweaked slightly since 2009.

    Wait for Dual core Scorpion and Adreno 220. THEN it will be worth it to by a Qualcomm-powered phone.

    Another HTC release on Verizon without dual core? Seems a tad behind the times at this point (granted the new chipset), esp with Sprint launching multiple dual core snapdragons sometime this year.

    • Anonymous

      It isn’t a new chipset. It’s the same damn chipset that powered the HD2 back in 2009. It’s just been build on 45nm and updated for CDMA and LTE so it can limp along until Qualcomm can perfect its next generation products.

    This will replace my OG droid, can’t wait.

  • tennis9z9

    Why is noise cancellation spelled wrong?

  • Juan_ortega92

    How do you put this boot animation on droid x?

    • http://twitter.com/IRONMatt14 Matt Robinson

      rename it to bootanimation.zip, use root explorer to push it to data/local

    Global? Awesome! No LTE? Deal breaker.

    • Coaster36

      no LTE? WIN!

    Forgot to add “HTC’s legendary battery life” ;)

      Pardon my naiveness but is that sarcasm? ._.

      • Anonymous

        Yes, yes it is.

  • Cephas003

    Yeah but can it do simultaneous voice/data over 3G like my Thunderbolt can ?

    • Anonymous

      Assuming if it’s the same chipset as the Thunderbolt, then it should be able to perform voice/data simultaneously

      • Guest

        Thunderbolt can only do that because of 4G. Voice over LTE while doing data over 3G. Since the Inc2 is only 3G, I don’t think it will be able to do simultaneous voice/data.

        • Bullet Tooth Tony

          Uhmm… no. Thunderbolt can “only do that” because Verizon updated it’s 3G network as part of it’s evolved HRPD migration to LTE, and does it over 3G – SVDO – in non-4G areas. It has nothing to do with LTE, and everything to do with HTC taking advantage of the recent upgrades… As an owner of the Thunderbolt outside of 4G territory, it works… and it works well.

          • Guest

            Ah! Ok. Guess I was misinformed. Thanks for enlightening me.

            this is so off topic but could you find moses in a burning bush for me? and i think it may make me happy to call you susan.

    Want.

    what there are you using? You should use elegant steel ;)

    Surround sound requires speakers that surround you. It should say Faux surround sound b/c I doubt the Inc2 will surround me. Cool none the less.

    Also Mr. Blurrycam strikes again. :o

  • izzyxD

    Wireless charging??

    • http://www.filepile.org/openid/stew560 Stew560

      Probably ships stock with an Inductive Battery Cover, ala the Palm Pre Plus

      • izzyxD

        something like power mat?

        • http://www.filepile.org/openid/stew560 Stew560

          Exactly.

      • http://twitter.com/Doahh Josh Carroll

        This is a step in the right direction. If my TOOTHBRUSH could do it 8 years ago why cant my smartphone do it now?

    • mtbhk44

      WOW!
