Did the DROID Incredible 4G drop the “G” or was this simply a marketing mistake?


We were excited to see that a supposed HTC DROID Incredible 4G may exist thanks to marketing materials posted over at AndroidForums.com, but this isn’t a new device at all: it’s the HTC DROID Incredible 4G we got our hands on last month, but this ad refers to it as the HTC DROID Incredible 4.

A possibility is that Verizon dropped the “G” in 4G, but this would be a long shot considering there has yet to be a third device in the DROID Incredible series.

This device will be worthy of donning the Incredible name, though, as it has exceptional build quality and a nice S4 processor to make for a very smooth experience. Be wary, though, as this isn’t being touted as a Hero device.

While the S4 processor is comparable to the one inside the Hero devices on the other three big US carriers, the Incredible 4G is notably missing the “ImageSense” technology that allows you to take a series of photos in quick succession. The 8 megapixel HD camera is still nice, though, and it should please anyone who doesn’t need that continuous burst. Take a look at the image above. [via AndroidForums.com, thanks valorian!] PS: we’ve reached out to Verizon for comment and we’ll bring you the latest should we hear anything.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Is this Verizon’s version of the “X” series?

    1. Its the One S on verizon, yes

      1. It’s cloest to the One S but quite a lot of differences. No f/2.0 lens (f/2.2), No 4.3″ AMOLED display (4.0″ LCD), No aluminum body (plastic), no ImageSense, no ultra-thin 7.9mm profile (11+mm). There are some good points though. It has NFC, microSD card, removable battery, it’s a non-pentile screen, and the phone is overall a little smaller which is nice considering most 4G LTE phones are huge.

      2. Not even close to the One S. Wait to the benchmarks come out… And that camera is non-ImageSense.

        I honestly don’t know why HTC is releasing this phone, except that they did such a botched job of supporting and marketing the ReZound which is better than this device in every way except for it does not have Sense 4.0 (debatable) and the better imager.

        1. The Rezound has a S3 and this one has a S4, that is a big different

          1. I wonder what the difference is though with the Rezound at 1.5GHz and the DINC4G at 1.2GHz.

    2. No VZW will not carry the One series according to their CEO, they are putting their hope in a new MOTO device. Not sure which device he meant, but if I had to guess its the Razr HD.

  2. In case anyone’s wondering, I shot that pic today (with my Incredible 2, haha), it is from a flyer advertising the new Family Share plans that just launched. If it’s a typo, it’s a pretty huge one, I’m betting they went with the “4” name on purpose. We’ll see…

  3. FAIL. I’m not interested in the device but I was planning on buying it for my girl, who likes the smaller devices. However, since they took so long to release it (conveniently after the family share plan), we found something else.

  4. Apple will be suing, given that they have an iPhone “4”

  5. Help me to understand why it’s NOT the 4th Incredible in the series? There was the Original Incredible, the Incredible 2, the Incredible S, and now the Incredible 4 or 4G.

    1. because the incredible s and the incredible 2 are the same phone.
