At first we thought this HTC Vigor battery was just a placeholder from a bunch of shady accessory sites looking to get pageviews. But if you actually Google the part number (35H00168-02M), all you can find is references to the Thunderbolt 2 / Vigor. It’s a 1620mAh battery, so it’s larger than the one we saw in the Thunderbolt, which is a good thing. There has been a lot of chatter surrounding this device and whether or not the battery life on LTE will be improved especially with its dual-core processor. It looks like HTC is at least going to give it a shot with a slightly bigger battery than they have used in the past.
We have two potential launch dates: October 13 and October 20. Pretty tough to tell if either are the actual date, but we are fully expecting to see this beast next month.
