Before Mobile World Congress, there was a large-looking HTC phone with Verizon branding and no one knew what it was. Later pictures told of a battery door with those same racing line contours found on the HTC DROID Incredible – a phone that was rumored to have a bigger brother coming.

MWC came and HTC announced the Incredible S, a European version of a phone we expected to hit Verizon. Today, more pictures have surfaced all but confirming the inevitable. The picture itself doesn’t show much, though I’m wondering how the phone’s time could be incriminating to whoever leaked the photo as it’s warped out.

We’d beg for a release date and pricing, but Verizon has yet to bring out two other HTC phones we know will be hitting the carrier – the Merge and the Thunderbolt. (HTC says that one’s release date will be announced “soon”, by the way.) [Android Spin]
