The first Android 4.0 HTC (TPE:2498 ) smartphone offering of Verizon (NYSE:VZ ) is reportedly set to be available near the end of the month. Verizon is the last major US service provider to announce its Android 4.0-powered HTC smartphone and reports have hinted at the possibility that it will be called the HTC Droid Incredible 4G.
The upcoming HTC Droid Incredible 4G of Verizon will succeed the HTC Incredible, which initially entered the market two years ago. The device was initially given the codename Fireball when it was first leaked into the net. The features and images of the upcoming HTC Droid Incredible 4G emerged recently which gave industry watchers an idea on what the service provider aims to offer its customers in the near future.
The leaked information on the upcoming HTC Droid Incredible 4G reportedly came from a well-known manufacturer of accessories. The name itself, HTC Droid Incredible 4G, is logical since the service provider is currently promoting its 4G LTE network.
The design of the upcoming HTC Droid Incredible 4G is similar to previous versions of the device with the curved battery cover although it reportedly takes some of its visual value from the HTC Rezound, which was offered last autumn.
The upcoming device offering of Verizon will reportedly feature a four-inch qHD screen display, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor from Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), 1GB RAM, eight-megapixel camera at the back and VGA camera in front. The HTC Droid Incredible 4G will also offer MHL, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G LTE network support. The device will feature the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 operating system.
For the moment it remains uncertain when the upcoming HTC Droid Incredible 4G will be introduced into the market although some reports have pointed to the end of the month as the possible release schedule for the device.
However some observers have also indicated that the CTIA, which is scheduled near the start of May, can be considered as a possible venue for introducing the upcoming HTC Droid Incredible 4G of Verizon.
