With a rumored dual-core 1.5GHz processor, LTE compatibility, and amazing 720×1280 HD display, the Gingerbread-powered HTC Vigor promises to be one of the most powerful smartphones of all time when it hits Verizon alongside the HTC Rhyme/Bliss. It’s also said to offer Beats Audio technology, though the first in-the-wild shots didn’t portray the Beats logo.
Vigor could launch as early as HTC’s September 20th NYC event, although there are upcoming candidates for each carrier that could also be the focus (Ruby, Holiday, Kingdom). While several sources claim that the handset will go by Thunderbolt 2 at retail, we’re seeing evidence that Vigor will in fact be the final branding.
We can’t help but get excited at what might well be the first HD cellphone, and you probably should be too.
