HTC Incredible 2 No Longer Available On Verizon Wireless – Droid Incredible 4G Nears

Jump onto Verizon Wireless’s site today, and if you’re looking for an HTC Incredible 2, you may notice that, although listed, the link to purchase is currently disabled, prompting “the selection you made is unavailable” page on the site (some regions could show “out of stock”). This is nothing more than a raging clue that the much leaked sequel — the HTC Incredible 4G — is inching ever closer for its debut on ‘ol Vee-zee-dubs.

We’ve pretty much seen and know, everything there is to know about the Incredible 4G, which should fit in nicely into Verizon’s mid-range lineup. The DINC 4G will feature compatibility with Verizon’s 4G LTE network, 4-inch qHD AMOLED display, and Sense 4.0 running on Android 4.0.3.

We’ve gotten word from our own trusted tipster that demo units for the HTC Droid Incredible 4G and Motorola Droid Fighter demo units are set to begin shipping sometime in the next 2 weeks (unless delayed). Looks like an imminent release is imminent (meaning, it’s almost imminent). We’ll keep you posted.

Thanks, Anon!

    Is this Verizon’s One S? If it is, it is NO WHERE as nice as the orginal!

    • Dzhokhar

       I agree.  I think I may have figured out the reason though:

      Verizon has some ridiculous “Antenna Diversity” requirements for phones that they sell (which is why the iPhone 4 on Verizon didn’t have the death grip problem).  These requirements basically require that Verizon phones have 2 antennas.  Unfortunately, there’s not really anywhere to put the second antenna on a phone with an aluminum back.  As a result, we get an Incredible 4G that looks like trash compared to a true One S.

    Incredible 4G, which should fit in nicely into Verizon’s mid-range
    lineup.”

    Are you serious????

    We don’t even have confirmation of the screen size yet (the one leak we had said something like “it seems like a 4″ screen, but we’re not sure”).  Additionally, I would hardly consider it mid-range if it has the S4 processor, which would make it the fastest phone on Verizon (by far).

      Okay, so maybe we don’t know EVERYTHING… Just pretty much everything.

      But lack of an HD display and the fact that it will come in at 4-inches places it right under the Rezound. Don’t get me wrong, it will be a very nice mid-level device (like the One S) but definitely not high-end ala the One X… 

      • Dzhokhar

         We need to stop using screen size/resolution as the only indicator of whether a phone is “high-end” or not.  By virtually every other metric the Incredible 4G appears to be just as high-end as the One X.

        • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

          Except in screen size/resolution.. O_o

          • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

            Joking aside, this is the same metric HTC used when they distinguished the difference between their own One line.

      • Covert_Death

        in all honesty i don’t consider the One S to be mid-range, i just feel that the One S is more of an AMOLED alternative to those who prefer that type of screen, everything else is on par with the ONE X

        • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

          If you had to choose, right now — One S or One X. Which. would. you. choose. GO.

          • Covert_Death

            HTC ONE X!

          • Covert_Death

          • Covert_Death

            in my defense though spec wise its still a high end phone, just not the screen in my opinion… after all the CPU actually beats T3 in some tests…. just saying :P

          • http://www.mark717.com Mark Seven

            Ur right.  Look at the Bionic, it was considered a high end phone but has a shitty ass screen.  I hated that phone.

          • EarlyMon

            I choose to wait for the EVO 4G LTE, S4 and big screen. Otherwise, I think that I would have to go One X.

          • Dzhokhar

            Of the international versions of those two phones, I’d take the One S because the One X is just too darned big (and the other differences are insignificant).

            Of all of the different variants, the only one that I would even consider in reality is the Incredible 4G (because it’s on Verizon), and I would still be reluctant to get it if it has a 4.3″ screen instead of a 4.0″ screen.

            My ideal phone has the internal components of the Incredible 4G with a 3.7″ AMOLED display and a correspondingly smaller form factor.

  • LawrenceMcatee

    OH I’m getting a raging clue too….

  • http://mensahwatts@yahoo.com Mensahwatts

    Sure isn’t the Droid I’m looking for…Chris wheres the info about that Huge Droid HD that was once rumored?

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      I believe that is now known as the Droid Fighter :p

  • Aaron soles

    They both have non removable battery, um I guess the one x. But I haven’t seen any in person

  • Flevy

    If the Incredible 4G has the internals of the HTC 1 S, I am happy to accept a thicker unit as the cost of a replaceable battery. 

  • romma

    Usually all the great sites pick up the EOL.. This one sounds like it whizzed on through… Damn you Verizon!!

  • http://www.mark717.com Mark Seven

    Looks like a smaller Rezound but with white buttons.  I like my red buttons tho. Makes the Rez different.

    • demarcmj

      If looks were everything, they could just sell you a shell of a phone with nothing inside. Fortunately, that’s not the case. And this is much different than the Rezound. In fact, looks are pretty much the only thing they do have in common.

  • Dean Cory

    Why can HTC put Ice Cream Sandwich on its phone,s but Motorola (Owned by Google) can’t?
