For the longest time, Verizon has been the leading wireless carrier in US shores in terms of LTE coverage. In fact, the carrier is currently undertaking a very aggressive expansion plan of its network. And with this expansion, Verizon is also expanding its handset base of 4G LTE-supporting smartphones.
The latest addition to the LTE stable of Verizon is the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE and this handset was officially announced by the wireless carrier last month. There were a couple of dates being thrown around as the exact date that the handset will make its debut in the shelves of the wireless provider but nothing definite has been nailed so far.
We’ve been expecting the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE to finally hit the shelves for quite some time now and the longer it takes, the more worried we are about the handset’s prospects of making it big given the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S III is also scheduled to hit the shelves of Verizon. Some people would definitely go for the Galaxy S III but there are others who are still intent on making the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE their next mobile weapon of choice.
If you happen to have the hots for the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, the initial rumored June 21 release date of the handset could probably pan out. Of course, this is still pure speculation but news of the arrival of promotional materials for the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE in the brick and mortar stores of the wireless carrier led us to believe that the rumored June 21 release date of the handset is right on the money.
The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE may have taken its sweet time in getting to the shelves of Verizon but the handset is bringing some good news with it. Based on the latest Verizon MAP (minimum advertised price), there is a possibility that the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE will be offered at a $149.99 price point with a new two-year contract with the carrier, making it a whole lot more affordable than the Samsung Galaxy S III. With this, we hope Verizon clears everything up by coming out with the official price point and launch date of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE to put us all out of our misery.
As for the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, the handset is expected to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for its operating system and this will draw power form the handset’s QualComm MSM8960 SnapDragon chipset. The computing power of the handset is delivered by its dual-core 1.2 GHz Krait processor and 1GB of RAM while its storage space is pegged at 8GB. This is still expandable though through the use of the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE’s microSD card slot. Its display on the other hand is a 4.0-inch SuperLCd panel with a 540 x 960 resolution while its dual-shooter configuration equips the handset with a rear-facing 8MP camera and a 1.3MP video call camera out front.
