Android Rumor Round-Up: Incredible, Stealthy Droids


With all the HP webOS-device news today, it’s easy for less tangible news to get swept under the rug. We’ve heard a few rumors that give us a little bit of insight into upcoming Android phones, and while none of the news provides a comprehensive look at phone specs, or sheds much light on availability, there’s still some interesting information out there on the next generations of a few notable smartphone lines.

The Motorola Droid X2 was tagged as a potential dual-core Tegra 2 phone with a qHD-resolution screen when rumors about it circulated in January. Now it’s said to be coming out sometime in Q2 2011, possibly as soon as late March.

Look for another qHD display on the Droid 3, supposedly a 4-incher, and for it to keep the standard DROID QWERTY keyboard. It, too, should get here sometime in Q2.

We had been thinking that Samsung’s Verizon LTE phone may be called the Verdict, but current rumors identify it as the Stealth. It seemed that the Stealth V was going to be Samsung’s SCH-i510, and its LTE model the i520, but maybe the company has shifted some names around.

HTC’s Incredible 2 will reportedly feature global 3G compatibility, with both HSPA and CDMA modes, have a white trim accent, and may be rocking the codename “Vevo”. You could see this one show up in March.
