HTC Droid Incredible 4G get benchmarked (plus a mystery device)

We’ve hear our share of rumors about the HTC Droid Incredible 4G. Whether you know it by the codename Fireball or model number ADR6410, its existence was a foregone conclusion. Now NenaMark benchmark scores have surfaced for the next entry into one of Verizon’s most popular smartphone brands of the past couple years.

The test reveals a few details about the handset, including the presence of Adreno 225 graphics, meaning its Qualcomm-made chip is most likely the Snapdragon S4. Th dual-core CPU is clocked at 1.2GHz. The Incredible 4G features a 960×540 display (probably in the 4.3-inch range) and is also running Android 4.0.3.

More interesting though is the discovery of a mystery HTC device also being treated to NenaMark testing. Listed only with model number VAE_WX, the handset shares some common elements with the Incredible 4G including a 960×540 display and Snapdragon S4 with Adreno 225 graphics. In this case the processor is clocked to 1.5GHz. The VAE_WX is also running Android 4.0.3. A warning as usual: these benchmark reports aren’t always entirely accurate and it’s hard to say exactly what we are looking at here.

The Droid Incredible 4G should be available this spring, possibly in April. For the VAE_WX we can’t be so sure, but if the presence of benchmark test is any indication it could be on the same trajectory as the Verizon-bound device.

    So much for a ‘few hero phones’.

      My thoughts exactly, but it gives me hope for a new HTC phone on Verizon to replace my DINC.

      • J Youngs

        Agreed.  However, from what I’ve seen, this isn’t going to be the phone that does it. :-/

          The S4 Krait processor is actually a big deal. Having the world LTE modem directly on the chip is a huge power saver, as well as being a 28 nm process as opposed to 45 nm. It is benchmarking well above all current phones for floating point and graphics. The Adreno 225 is not the latest, but it’s a step up from today’s options. You’ve got L1 and L2 cache as well as dual channel memory. 1080p graphics capable, FM radio included on chip, zero lag camera, dual mic capable. So even though the specs for this phone look to be a step back from the Rezound, and almost as far back as the Dinc2,  it will definitely be a step forward, beating the Razr, GNex, and even the Transformer.

    First article that I have seen that hints at the incredible 3/4g having the S4 processor!!! :D
    Then again, this probably means nothing…

    960 x 540? Rezound has 720 x 1280. Why not use the same display? Incredible is a good name. They should only use their best components.

       Hopefully the resolution is lower because the screen is smaller.

      This sounds a lot like it could be based off of the HTC One S meaning SAMOLED and Snapdragon S4 then it’s the Krait CPU and it’s a beast… This will probably be my next phone, I’m sick of all these massive phones coming out.

         Yeah, I’m guessing this is the Verizon incarnation of the One S. Same specs: 1.5 GHz dual-core S4 processor, 4.3-inch qHD
        Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel camera with f/2.0 lens, Beats

  • J Youngs

    1.2 GHz dual core? really? Way to set the bar…
