Droid Incredible 4G LTE Pops Up Again On Camera – Exposes NFC Capabilities


Alright, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G has been leaked on the internet more times than Lindsay Lohan’s — never mind. While we’ve already seen the real meat of the specs leaked on the DroidDoes site a few days ago, there’s still a few details yet to be revealed. The latest leaked pics come from a user on Reddit who reportedly got some hands on time with the device after a quick visit from an HTC rep.

According to the user, the rep was able to demonstrate the Android Beam functionality of the Dinc 4G, made possible thanks to it’s embedded NFC chip (pictured above on the battery door). Everything else was pretty much a confirmation from what we already know. Dual-core S4 processor, qHD display, 1GB of RAM, etc., along with a May launch looking likely. Oh, there will be an official HTC extended battery available at launch similar to the HTC Rezound’s. All the cards are in place. Just a matter of time now folks. Anyone still interested in this device?

Thanks, Mike!

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. More times than Lindsay Lohan’s what?!?!?!!? The suspense!!! 

  2. Still a big yawner for me. I just don’t see anything worth leaving my Rezound for.

    1. More comfortable size for holding in hand and android 4.0

      1. The Rezound is comfortable to hold and my hands aren’t even that big.  The only thing better is Android 4.0 and Sense 4.0.

        1.  AND
          A faster processor, a better primary camera, and significantly improved battery life (larger battery+more efficient processor/radio+smaller screen).

          1. Yes, all those things plus NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. Its also lighter and thinner than the Rezound on top of all those other improvements.

            and of course Sense 4 as Mark said
            (ICS shouldn’t be listed as a difference because the Rezound will get ICS around the same time this phone comes out in the form of Sense 3.6)

  3. I’m a little disappointed that it’s the 1.2ghz S4 and not the 1.5 S4. But I’ll wait for the benchmarks and the reviews. I’m definitely a fan of 4″ screens.

    1. It could just be underclocked… we don’t know

  4. Not worth droping my bionic for.

    1. NFC? Better quality screen? Android 4.0 out of the box? No?

    2. I’d drope your bionic.

    3. The Bionic SUCKS

    4. But maybe worth “dropping” it for. :-)

      Poor Bionic, the only phone to be MONTHS old the day it was “born”. 

      I am embarrassed for Verizon and Motorola when it comes to the Bionic. I think if it hadn’t been for the 9 month wait and all the pent-up demand, they would have never even released that device and just have presented the RAZR instead: The RAZR reflects all the lessons @Motorola learned in the process of trying to make the Bionic make sense.

  5. Did he say early may/mid may/late may? Really hoping for an early may release.

    1. Early May. As in, next week, May. 

      1.  Awesome! Thanks for the news!

        1. The guy on reddit said that HTC was having a “Product Training” event. This means an announcement is literally right around the corner.

  6. Why, why, why is there not a 720p display on this phone? I would be more than willing to bet that it’s going to be released as a high end phone (aka it’s going to cost $300), and while I freely admit I’m not expert regarding profit margins or manufacturing costs, I’m pretty sure a better display could have been included without a significant loss of revenue for HTC. 

    Also, the OG DInc was the best Verizon phone, and one of the best phones period, at the time it was released. Why can’t HTC replicate that with a newer model? The Incredible 2 was a huge letdown and the 4G isn’t even spec’d the same as HTC’s current flagship. Com’on guys, all I want is a respectable flagship HTC phone to replace my Incredible with. Please? 

    1. The Rezound is as good as it will probably get for HTC on Verizon. That is, Verizon can get a version of the HTC One X (Thunderbolt/Rezound 2?). Don’t see that happening anytime soon though.. 

      1. The Rezound should’ve been called the Incredible HD.

    2. I’m a DInc owner too, and I still find it to be a great phone even after 1.5 years. Sadly, with this newest version of the phone, HTC has taken the meaning out of that “incredible” label :(

    3. I still have the Dinc and it really lived up to it’s name.  Unfortunately this version does not meet that name and nothing Verizon has right now has me excited enough to sign a new contract.

    4. This phone doesn’t make sense:

      Only qHD.

      Only a 1.2 Ghz S2 (why??)

      $300 – what?

      It’s like it’s trying to be a modern high-end device, but has none of the specs for such a device.

      1.  And it’s like.. You know nothing about the phone either!
        It has a 1.2ghz S4 processor, and a 4″ qHD display, to help with battery life, make it more affordable, and appeal to the masses.
        It will intro between 99$ and 149$. It’s a mid-range device. It makes complete sense.

        1. There is NO WAY vzw will sell this for less than 200… I mean I wish but lets be honest. 200 would be the sweet spot for this phone

          1. It certainly will intro for less than 200. I’m almost sure of it. It doesn’t make sense to price more than 149$. Who knows. Maybe Verizon is just insane. They aren’t even including an SD card and only have 8gb of onboard storage. Come on, it’s clear they are trying to price it reasonably.

          2. and reasonable to them IS 200… mark my words.

            And don’t get me wrong… i REALLY hope your right. I am just positive you aren’t, lol.  

          3.  I changed my mind. You’re right. A guy on the forums says it’ll be priced at 249$. I don’t think they can price it that much still. Hoping for 199$ at most.

          4. I’m COMPLETELY with you on that. Price this sucker at 200 and BOOM! This thing will sell like hotcakes… anything more and vzw is just shooting themselves in the foot…..

            <—crosses fingers

    5. Rezound is an amazing phone and pretty much the spiritual successor to the DInc (used if two years, still sits in my desk – can’t get rid of it)… the screen on the Rezound is out of this world, crazy-good. Bit bigger, too (4.3 vs 3.7). 

  7. what about the camera?

  8. razr

  9. Nfc but no google wallet

      1. That app is blocked on ALL vzw phones :)

        1. It’s just blocked from downloading directly, so you download the apk to your phone and install it that way. It takes an extra minute or so. The app still works just fine.

          I suppose giving a link to the market link was a little bit misleading. If I was going to give that, I couldve at least given the link to this…
          (although you can also google for the apk instead of using this chrome extension)

  10. Also an original Dinc owner – This phone is above average, but certainly not Incredible… Let’s gloss it the HTC One X – 1 (Missing HD Display, Larger Screen (4.3 would be perfect), S4 1.5 Ghc, and a Better Battery.  Was really excited, but now keeping my wallet in my pocket (Along with my 3G Dinc)  until AT&T looses the exclusive on the HTC One X (Hoping for a removable battery & Micro SD like everyone else).  Oh well, another long waiting game begins…

    1. This phone is simply a HTC One S remixed as an Incredible with +NFC and +MicroSD thrown in for good measure. Why oh why they slowed down the SoC to 1.2GHz I’m not sure, but I bet it was so that AT&T and Sprint could have their time in the limelight with their HTC One X/XL and EVO flagships.

      This fall, HTC and Verizon will come back with the next iteration of the Thunderbolt/Rezound flagship phone. I suspect this may even get the Qualcomm S4 Pro and pack a lightfield camera–all the better to compete with the iPhone 5 which will be packing LTE and maybe lightfied as well.
