HTC Vigor Benchmark Spotted, Headed to Verizon with 1.5GHz Dual-core Processor and 720p HD Display?

Pardon me while I pick my jaw up off the floor to attempt to write this post.  What you are looking at, is a (unconfirmed) benchmark for the HTC Vigor that could be headed to Verizon.  If what we are seeing is to be believed, the device (ADR6425LVW) will run Qualcomm’s new 1.5GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor that includes the brand new Adreno 220 GPU – a processor and GPU set that at least on paper, might be one of the most impressive we’ve ever seen.  It gets better though.  Check out the display resolution of 1280×720…yep, 720p HD resolution right there.

It’s also running Android 2.3.4 at this time, but with a resolution like that, we’re thinking Ice Cream Sandwich would be a likely candidate come launch; especially if rumors of on-screen home/search/back buttons are to be believed.  

To give you a refresher, here is a video of this new processor and GPU combo from Qualcomm in action:

And, I’m excited.

    OK im upgrading from my thunderbolt to the HTC Vigor

    iphone 5 killer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Meh, this is the chip in the evo3d/sensation, is it not? Just clocked higher.

    That turd even @1.8ghz is nothing special.  

    So besides the resolution there’s nothing really to see here.

    when is this coming? 0_0

  • This is definitely an LTE device,  the ADR6400-LVW = LTE Verizon Wireless for ThunderBolt

    ADR6425LVW – LTE i can almost guarantee that

    But the Vigor’s screen is too big to be a smartphone, it could very well be the HTC Flyer for Verizon, the resolution isn’t high enough to be a 10.1 tablet

    • Anonymous

      Based on your model number analysis, doesn’t it make sense that the ADR6425LVW would be a smart phone and not a tablet?  By screen size, do you mean resolution? This data doesn’t provide the size of the screen; however several manufacturers are known to be developing 720p smart phones.
       
      I think it’s likely that this is an LTE smart phone that is meant as an upgrade/replacement/big brother to the Thunderbolt.  Just my 2 cents…

    i hate hearing about phones like this because i cant decide which one to get….. i wanted the droid bionic and then came the GSII and now i want the GSII but theres this beast??? i dunno….. No offense droid-life i love you and all but just tell us about phones that WILL happen because im tired of waiting….. 

  • Wow, if this is true.. and if its gonna be Android an not Windows, with LTE.. Then I might just have to forget all about the Bionic, SGSII, Etc..  Ive been hoping for a new massive HTC phone to come out for Verizon

  • Prickee

    Wife has DX and my OGDroid just took a crap & I just picked up HTC Incredible I from co-worker. After root and + flashingrom with gingerbread+ sense 3.0. Now I believe HTC UI blows motoblur so forget the bionic I have been holding off on. DInc should hold me nice till this monster is released.

  • Ben Myton

    These specs would make sense next to BGR’s rumors that each carrier will build a “flagship” device for the release of Ice Cream Sandwich right?

    Supposedly the Samsung version is going to use the OMAP 4460 instead of the Qualcomm Krait, but either way all the devices look pretty good.  It’s just a shame that I think I’m going to have to retire my OG before the potential release of these phones…

    • I’m with ya on that one… I’m hoping my OG makes it to the Bionic or GSII (as long as its 4G). Poor phone is on its last leg?!

  • Too bad its an HTC!!!

  • is this the krait processor?

  • Trooper

    Sounds awesome but if its anything like the Droid Incredible (poor build quality and voice quality on calls) I will pass.  Say what you want about Moto, but they still have the best hardware.

    Could be verizons version of nexus. Kind of like the increible. Time will tell. These rumors are killing sales of phones. Everyone is holding out lol. Bionic will have a very hard time selling with sg2 and this on the
    way. And very possibly a nexus. Holidays will be interesting.

  • Cwzrd

    Forget about The galaxy s2 and the droid bionic android icecream with sense 3.0 all this power hope it’s LTE and it will be beast

  • Adreno 220 is still pretty weak compared to Tegra 2, PowerVR SGX 540+, and Mali… But it ain’t terrible.

          i just looked at the Samsung 10.1 tablet specs and its the same 1280×720 and 720p HD display i guess we’ll just have to wait and see… Crossing my fingers i hope its a phone and not tablet!

    I wonder if this will be VZW Nexus Prime version?

    wait is this a phone or a tablet?

  • Joseph

    Does Ice Cream spearate out the “Read Phone State and Identity” permission? Someone made a request here, http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=17675 . It would be nice to not let apps have access to my phone number, MEID, IMEI, etc. while still being able to know its call state.

    We’ll probably see a few sick phones with the launch of ICS as the result of Google making the vendors compete for the next Nexus phone (if those rumors are true).

      no way jose

      at this point i could give a rats ass when we see it…..i’ll buy it…… not waiting for the bionic anymore they can keep their pentile crap screen!!

  • Ok, the graphics may be hot, but I am most in love with the true Dolby 5.1 output.  If you can push 5.1 out via Bluetooth, like I do now (minus 5.1) with my Thunderbolt pushing Pandora to my car’s stereo, then I am officially salivating!!

  • This wont drop for awhile I beleive qualcomm said its dual core will be ready towards the end of the year so I wont hold my breath for the phone

      they already have dual core out

      • for qualcomm are u sure

          Yes, this is just an updated version of their current dual core which is used in the Sensation and Evo 3D.

  • daniel walsh

    this looks awesome

  • Anonymous

    This is the same processor and GPU as in the Sensation and Evo 3D just on a smaller die process and capable of higher clock speeds so it can compete with the Exynos and OMAP4.

    This is why people choose iPhone…lol….Because a new and improved phone doesn’t come out every 2 weeks. Buyers remorse is MUCH less when buying an iphone
