The next big LTE super smartphone just got leaked in pictures. In all its ‘Vigor’ and Vim, this Verizon based HTC device would be the next big thing following Motorola Droid Bionic, with an October 6th launch date.
HTC Vigor pictures leaked by Droid-life, show that the device has a massive screen, rumored to be 4.3″. A front facing camera is visible just above the screen, and the big lens on the back is accompanied by dual-flash. The rubbery back says that it comes with HTC Sense, which is obvious. We aren’t surprised to see no Verizon or LTE branding on either sides, as this could very well be a test device. From the Droid-ish look and color scheme and with a rumored high-resolution screen, HTC Vigor could very well be the Incredible HD.
The rumored specs of HTC Vigor say that it would be operating in the power of a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 1GB RAM. The 4G LTE enabled device would sport a massive 4.3″ screen with 720p resolution. It would run on Android 2.3.4. The internal storage would be 16GB.
