New HTC handset leak points to Incredible S successor

Today’s a pretty exciting day for leaks! PhoneArena has received some leaked photos of a new HTC device that looks to be the successor to the Incredible S/2 that was released last year on Bell/Verizon. While this particular model sports LTE and is destined for Verizon, it is likely the company would create a LTE/HSPA model for Canada and Europe. Even if they don’t, it gives us a good idea as to how Sense 4.0 will look on a new device.

Like the Incredible S, which was one of my favourite devices of 2011, it has that weird industrial-looking back cover, though this one is white whereas its predecessor was black. Internal specs look to be a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP back camera and VGA front camera, and a 4.3-inch AMOLED display running Ice Cream Sandwich. These specs sound very similar to many of the HTC devices released last year, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the dual-core processor was a newer Snapdragon S4 variant.

You like what you see? Despite HTC’s promise of lowering its device output in 2012 it seems they are on track to release quite a few at Mobile World Congress this month.

    Pretty much now if it is dual core it should be an s4 and seriously a VGA FFC…

  • bob

    If it’s not an S4 they would be better not release it at all. Especially if the display is qHD.

  • cody

    I still like the original best..

  • SAM

      Are you nuts? This device is not competeing with Note and its design is pretty similar to old Incredible , espcailly the back cover

    • Sam 2.0

      i am the more reserved and quiet version of sam. please love your iphone as they are the best and samsung is light years behind. peace to all.

    • Sam 3.1

      I am the more out-of-the-closet version of Sam, and I think that all of us should stop fighting, and start giving each other sexy hugs!

      Also, this phone is FFAAABBUULLOOOUSSS! 😀

    one word….WHY!?!?!?

  • Mystic09

    Comments made me lol

  • Craig

    If it will be running ICS, why are there hardware buttons?

  • L

    Well, still waiting to see the pricetag on this one. Maybe under 400$? That would be neat.

  • Dan

    Why the back? It looks so bad… I mean if it houses a battery like the RAZR MAXX’s than I guess its ok, but if its the same crappy battery we see in most HTC handsets, then send this one back as its not done.

  • Megan

    If it’s running ICS, I’m glad there are hardware buttons.

    • BaconTelevision

      Pure speculation, but I don’t think it’ll be running ICS out of the box. The Four captive buttons on the bottom suggest a 2.x build, when google had strongly encouraged vendors in the past to phase out the menu button

  • Mike

    I love my Incredible S and this would be a good replacement.

  • Sub-Joker

    I used the incredible S during summer of last year (before I switch to the galaxy SII). and it was one of my favorable phones. I didn’t like the contoured back idea but it adds uniqueness in its looks.

    but overall, it was an excellent phone. and I think the incredible name has already established itself so I wouldn’t be surprised if they added a successor to their lineup.
