Mysterious HTC Device With LTE Lands at the FCC, It’s Definitely the Vigor

The HTC Vigor may have well just landed itself at the FCC this morning.  Thanks to a report of an HTC device with CDMA and LTE radios that received a bunch of test results, we can’t imagine it would be anything but.  Oh, and the model number matches the one we saw when it received WiFi certification.  So with this next-gen HTC device receiving all sorts of certifications as well as a filing at the FCC, I’d say we are getting close.

Need a reminder on specs?  We have been told that it will have a 4.3″ HD screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processors, dual-cameras, no kickstand, 4G LTE support, Android 2.3.4, Sense 3.5 and Beats by Dre audio enhancements (which could just mean a pair of headphones).  Not official by any means, but definitely match up to other rumored HTC devices that are on the way.

The current rumored release date is October 6.

  • My husband and i were fortunate Emmanuel could round up his researching through the precious recommendations he was given when using the web site. It’s not at all simplistic to just happen to be giving for free guides which many people might have been trying to sell. So we remember we now have the blog owner to be grateful to because of that. All the illustrations you made, the straightforward website navigation, the relationships your site assist to create – it’s everything awesome, and it is making our son and us understand that idea is thrilling, and that is really vital. Thanks for the whole lot!

  • A lot of thanks for each of your labor on this website. My mum really likes doing investigation and it is simple to grasp why. Many of us know all about the dynamic tactic you provide rewarding strategies through the website and as well cause contribution from other individuals about this subject matter and my child is really becoming educated a lot of things. Take advantage of the remaining portion of the year. You are always performing a tremendous job.

  • I like the part where it’s not about the Droid Bionic.

    I would get the Nexus Prime given the ICS OS installed and not having to deal with the haptic menu buttons that will be there when you finally do get ICS on this phone.

    The only reason I would pass on this device I am thinking is to keep money out of Microsoft’s greedy pockets lol


    No way…sense 3.5, that shit looks fugly… id love it it has svdo though…it would make it the perfect phone but why just not sense 3.0…that looks amazing…

    this device will suck

      ha you mad you got the bionic and this comes out?

  • Anonymous

    Awesome!  Now I just have to see how the the reviews come back of this and the Prime to make my decision.  Assuming the Prime comes out in the next couple of months and comes to Verizon.

  • Rawheat

    Can’t wait for this thing…I mean look at those specs!  1.5Ghz dual core, HD display, 6 minute battery life…who wouldn’t wait for this one!

    • Anonymous

      Yeah…especially coming from HTC.  It’s odd the way they couldn’t seemingly care less about battery life.  Although, I doubt it is the hardware.  I personally choose to blame Sense for syncing the entire Internet with your device every fifteen minutes.  Yes, I know you can customize the intervals, but them shits go rouge sometimes.

  • Joeblow

    I see they state the battery as 1620mah which is better but not as much as bionic at 1750mah

    HD or qHD

    will this phone have an HDMI port?

    • Probably MHL, Sensation and EVO 3D don’t have a native HDMI port but they do have MHL which is the same thing except over USB through an adapter.

  • David Bavin

    Only a 1620 mAh battery for a 1.5 GHz dual core processor… bionic has 1735 mAh and a weaker processor…

    • The newer processors of the Snapdragon “Scorpion” family are more power efficient. They also have 2nd Gen LTE antennas

  • I’m jumping on the next HTC/4G lte with comparable specs to the GS2.  Ill phone, service and an unlocked bootloader.

    Just made a creamsicle!

  • 1620 mah battery! finally they’re putting better batteries in

  • Sdny8

    I like how the new lte devices have “real” extended batteries. My dx was a lousy extra 300mah

  • It looks like an incredible on steroids.

  • Jikhead

    Battery specs are on par with the Bionic.

    • Anonymous

      and you know this how?

      • The battery is listed on the second FCC document above

        2750mAh Extended battery

        • Anonymous

          atleast they bumped up the battery some from the tb. Still will probably suck unless htc figured something out.

  • HTC sent out an invite for Sept 20th to the press… would be a great time to announce it right?


    • hmm, New York, its a US announcement for sure then,  most likely the Amaze 4G, Vigor, Holiday, and Kingdom.

      Juicy, thanks for sharing

    • Anonymous

      Especially if it is coming out oct 6 the 20th would be a good time to announce it.

  • Ortega

    this phone is ugly. htc and their ugly designs

    • Anonymous

      disagree x2

    • Duck Dodgers

      Cool, someone else said it too. Hate the “tank” designs and the god awful camera bezels.

  • also, “beats earphones”  not “headphones”  BMX was right about the earbuds for “the dual core beast”  man that guy rocks on stuff like this.

    The Merge went through the FCC as well.

    Believe it when I see it 😉

    • Anonymous

      the merge wasn’t high end either.

  • Veracity

    At what point should someone use their last NE2 upgrade? Seems like after every big new phone drops, another more robust phone gets scheduled to release a month later.

    I think I’m going to choose this over the Prime.

    • Anonymous

      I think I’m going to wait and see the phones actually up and running before I make any decisions.

  • This looks fantastic. 
    I’m down with this. 

    • ramifications


  • I love being right about the LTE part on this device 🙂

    I said over and over again to everyone on here that it was going to have LTE, but did anyone listen? nope

    LVW = LTE Verizon Wireless

    ADR6400LVW – ThunderBolt
    ADR6425LVW – Vigor

    ADR6300VW – OG DROID Incredible
    ADR6325VW – MERGE
    ADR6350VW – DROID Incredible 2

    Seeing a pattern here?

      want a cookie? 😉

      • Why yes, thank you, i’ll take two, do you have any in chocolate chip and white macadamia nut? 😛

          Sorry, only M&M 🙂 haha

          There is no need to clarify that the Macadamia nut is white.  

    • made perfect sense the first time i saw your post and it makes sense now. 

    • John

      Yeah there are a lot of ADR6’s and Vw’s…well done

      • uh, look again

        i’m talking about pattern in numbers

  • Looks like the thunderbolt reworked… pass.

  • Anonymous

    If they didn’t screw over the battery life, it could be interesting. 

    • 1620mAh from the looks of it

      • Anonymous

        then that would be a complete fail. HD screen and 1.5GHz A8 processor? This would need at least 1800 to be usable.

        • Anonymous

          A9, not A8.

          • Anonymous

            Source? Last I heard it’s still A8. OMAP4 is A9

          • Anonymous


            The primary feature added by the A9 is multicore functionality. Multi-core A8’s don’t exist.

          • Phil

            the snapdragon processor is 2 separate cores both of A8 that run as dual core through a modified SoC, TI OMAP 4 is the only  A9 based

          • Anonymous

            Not true. The snapdragons use Scorpion cores, which are similar to the A8 but not exactly the same(qualcomm chose not to license the A8 architecture from ARM). They are the only chips to do this. All other dual cores(exynos, omap4, Tegra 2, even apple’s A5) use the cortex A9 architecture.

          • this is true, its different from A8’s

      • i see 1620 .. where are you getting 1650 from?

    • but doesn’t that also mean it will have the same Voice over Data like Tbolt on both (3G/4G ?)

      I know with Bionic you can’t do it on 3G, atleast that was a major complaint with most on here.

      • Anonymous

        that’s exactly what it means.

    • Anonymous

      Are you implying this battery life will be like the Thunderbolt? Because if you are, you’re probably right.

    • Jam120992

      you get more talk time out of the battery on 1x then evdo

  • Dream

    Thats one suped up INC ahh cant decide Prime or Vigor!!!!
