With the HTC Droid Incredible 2 first going out-of-stock at Verizon, followed by the model’s disappearance from the carrier’s website, it’s been seeming more and more likely lately that Verizon’s just about ready to introduce the next Incredible model. We’ve been following the Droid Incredible 4G LTE since it was known to us only as the HTC Fireball, and with rumors pointing to a possible April 26 release, we could finally be about to see it land. Today there’s one more sign Verizon is nearly ready to announce the handset, putting up a Droid Incredible 4G LTE page on its Droid Does website.
The entry for the smartphone is somewhat buggy, mentioning the Droid RAZR Maxx in places, but this is clearly the Droid Incredible 4G LTE we’re looking at. Verizon confirms that new take on the name for us, adding the “LTE”, which we first saw used by accessory makers earlier this month.
More importantly than the name, the information on the site confirms a whole bunch about the phone’s hardware. Sure enough, we’re looking at a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, four-inch Super LCD qHD display, and gigabyte of RAM. We also learn the Incredible 4G LTE will have a 1700mAh battery, eight-megapixel main camera with VGA front-facer, and include 8GB of internal storage with expansion available via microSD.
Look for Verizon to publicly announce the Droid Incredible 4G LTE in the very near future. According to what’s available on Droid Does, the phone should end up costing about $300 on-contract, but that sounds a bit steep; we’re not sure just yet if it will be the handset’s final price.
