HTC Rezound Now Appears in Verizon Cellebrite, Name More Official Than Ever

Within an hour or so of the HTC Rezound and Galaxy Nexus making their way onto Verizon’s newest MAP list at $299, one of them also cruised into Cellebrite under its official name. The Rezound – as we are calling it going forward – once showed up as the Vigor just a few weeks ago, but have now seen it as this Beats and audio-friendly name much more frequently. We know that most of you are either confused or turned off by the name, so I’ll just try to help you look past that by saying that this phone should be as good as any out in the next couple of months. Well, assuming HTC actually updates it to ICS at some point – poor Thunderbolt Froyo owners.

Recap on specs? The phone should sport a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.3″ HD screen, 1GB of RAM, Beats audio enhancements, 4G LTE, 8MP rear camera, Sense 3.5 and look as sexy as any device we have seen from HTC in a while.

Cheers ___!

    Crappy name. Shoulda saved the name “Thunderbolt”, which is pretty damn cool, for this phone. Too bad they wasted that name last year on a mediocre phone.

    • Bionic

      they coulda made it the thunderbolt 2

        it doesnt resemble a thunderbolt enough to call it that. it resembles an incredible though. i miss my incredible :/.

    Htc vigor or Nexas prime?

  • Anonymous

    ‘With Beats audio enhancements’…what exactly does that mean? Music player with EQ and bass boost built in? I use my phone as my main music player now so it’s pretty important to sound good. If it has some top quality audio enhancements,then this is my phone. If it’s just a pair of Beats earphones or some such nonsense,then no. Might still get the phone,though if I like it….

    Isn’t the Rezound (Vigor) a better buy than the Galaxy Nexus then??

    • Bionic

      no, not with that over clocked ancient snap dragon.  its way too over clocked for my taste.  Battery life will probably suck big time just like the thunderbolt.  There is a damn good reason the Bionic and Razr are clocked where they are.

    For the DL amateur… what is Cellebrite?

    • Kelson Sebring

      I believe it is the system they use for transferring contacts from phone to phone. For those in the stone age who haven’t taken the time to make all of their contacts Google contacts.

    4.3″ screen just isn’t sending a tingle up my leg anymore.

    • Mark M

      I think anything bigger than a 4.3″ is too big. I mean its a cell phone not a mini-tablet.

  • Mark M

    How long would it be after release that the Rezound would get Ice Cream Sandwich?  I can’t image Google would limit the new OS to one device for too long.  I would imagine a month tops…

    • Bionic

      Motorola devices will be first along with the new Nexus.  All others will fall in line after them.  

  • Tysoncrosby21

    Very beast mode specs, but with HTC’s spotty track record of updating android phones I think I’ll stick with a device that’s releasing with ics…..all that hardware is pretty useless if the software can’t take full advantage of it

    • Bionic

      good choice.  Or go with the Razr which is sure to get ICS soon after release

  • Anonymous

    I don’t know how you people can find phones sexy or drool over then, lol. In a way the Terminators have already won.

  • Anonymous

    How long after appearing on this cellbrite site do phones get launched?

    • Interstellarmind

      current rumors peg g-nex and rezound for 11/10/2011.

      no one gives a sh*t about the razr, so it’s release date should be of no import. hehe

        Verizon wont release 2 top tier 4g phones on the same day

    My Verizon Smartphone ranking:

    1. Nexus Prime
    2. HTC Vigor
    3. Motor razor
    4. LG revolution 2 (might be #3)
    5. Droid Bionic

      LOL, the Revolution 2 which we know nothing about is higher than the Bionic?  Will the blind hatred never stop?

      - the Bionic, I like your list….the Razor a huge ‘if’. IF it’s locked,then no go. Unlocked? Maaaaaybe….

      No way in hell any LG phone ranks over motorola, sorry.  I love LG electronics, but not their phones.

    how much does it weigh? and what is the battery spec?

    • Bionic

      its an HTC, meanign the battery life will suck, especially with an overclocked ancient chip

  • Mctypething

    Wow, what will you guys talk about once the Rezound, Nexus Prime, and Droid Razr release? I don’t see anything else on the horizon. You might actually have to talk about Android. Go figure.

      Galaxy S3, a quadcore Motoral phone, and a quadcore HTC Incredible HD…. oh and quadcore tablets. 
      What do you expect them to talk about? The how to add an emial on your android phone crap androidandme puts out?

      • http://www.facebook.com/LuisElTiburon Luis Rojas

        I would like to see them talk about apps that are useful but thats about it. But as far as roms go our community is so diverse they dont want to discriminate against those who dont own certain phones. 

        I see you on every post anyway so they must be doing something right. 

        • Mctypething

          I’d also like to see more talk about apps that are useful. There are probably tons of good apps out there I don’t know about that I could use. I just think an Android site can be more dynamic than exclusively hyping new phones coming out. This site definitely used to be more dynamic than that.

    But will it ship with it’s own electricity generation unit?

  • http://twitter.com/BiggiePhat JG

    Why doesn’t it have the “L” like HTC likes to do with its LTE devices…

    • compchick813

      Good question. It looks like it would barely fit on the screen if they had added it though.

  • Interstellarmind

    i’m really curious to compare the rezound cpu and the g-nex’s.

    which is better? a possibley s3 snapdragon? or OMAP (whatever generation thereof is rumored to be it for the g-nex)

    • Anonymous

      The OMAP has better performance per clock than S3 Snapdragon based on the small number of benchmarks I’ve been able to compare. The 1.5Ghz Snapdragon outperforms a 1Ghz OMAP 4430, but not by a whole lot. I’m guessing the OMAP at 1.2Ghz is just as fast (maybe faster), and in theory should have better battery life because of the lower clocks (although battery life for a given chipset is a lot more complex than just comparing Ghz rating).

  • Anonymous

    Looks good, but honestly with the Nexus coming out it’s not worth it.

    • Interstellarmind

      not if the rezound has better specs – which looks like it will. 8mp cam and SD card slot and 1.5 ghz chip

      as far as ics goes: you can always root and rom (especially since htc now allows unlocking of their devices)

      • Anonymous

        I rather have more battery than an extra .3 GHz over Nexus or RAZR.  I think the battery numbers need to come in for this device before considering it especially after the Thunderbolt and it’s rocket booster extended battery.  Hopefully they have improved as it is a nice looking phone.

        • QQMore

          Also if I remember correctly, Vigor (aka Rezound) is the one that has a sealed battery like the fruit phone.  It’s supposed to be bigger than what would normally be in there if they made it accessible, but still sealed is sealed and if battery life sucks, there’s no way to drop an extended battery in it.

          • compchick813

            The battery isn’t sealed. There was a video tutorial pulled from the leaked Vigor/Rezound rom that showed how to remove the battery.

          • QQMore

            Ah ok, I know there was one coming that original specs showed a sealed battery to help make it thin.  Thought it was the Vigor maybe it’s the RAZR.  Or maybe the specs were wrong and/or changed.

          • compchick813

            The RAZR kinda looks like it won’t have a removable battery since moto phones usually have an obvious battery door.

      • Anonymous

        Nexus is a future proof phone as far as Google goes. They will always have the first launch of updated OS on that phone. I like HTC, but no way would I give up having a flagship Nexus device over that a few extra MHz in the processor.

  • Mule0331

    I’m so torn between the 3 phones slated to drop here soon. Each have their own plus and minus. I hope you guys can get your hands on all 3 and do a side by side by side review of the Razr, Rezound and the GNex.

    • Guttatae22

      I can relate to that lol…I like HTC sense and the integrated beats technology and the MOTO razor looks extra thin and the nexus is equipped with ics but I’m a big fan of HTC though

      • Mule0331

        I hear grumblings about Samsung and potential bad radios, but NFC and ICS is awesome. I’m gunshy with HTC because of my TBolt but the specs are to much to ignore, and I had such good luck with my Moto Droid X. One thing about Moto is that they always seem to have the best accessories (car docks, desk docks) and such. Man I cant decide

  • Doug

    November 10th-ish posibly. Do we know what kind of processor? All I’ve headr is dual core 1.5 ghz. But is it snapdragon? TI omap? 

    • Anonymous

      OMAP, I believe.

        HTC uses Snapdragon

    • Anonymous

      It’s a Snapdragon MSM8660.

  • Djenks24

    I don’t think I can bring myself to buy another HTC after how dissatisfied I am with the Thunderbolt.  I called Verizon the other day from my wife’s droid x to tell them I didn’t have a signal.  They finally decided to send me a new one!!!  Wish they would have sent me a Bionic!!!

    • Anonymous

      Thunderbolt really gave HTC a bad hit… Never had those issues with my EVO or any issue that wasn’t fixed quickly… But I’m still looking forward to a (Hopefully) Debloated ICS Sense UI

  • Anonymous

    Why oh why…Vigor or Incredible HD would have been so much better. But then again who cares, Galaxy Nexus all the way! :D
