Leaked Verizon Docs Reveal Droid Bionic, HTC Vigor, LG Revolution 2

By  |  19 Comments

Three new Verizon Wireless high-end devices were shown in a newly leaked Verizon document that were sent to retailers for guidance on the minimum advertised price, or MAP. The list includes the Motorola Droid Bionic, which was confirmed by Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha to launch in September, the venerable and powerful HTC Vigor, which may succeed the HTC Thunderbolt, and an LG device that so far has yet to be revealed but is speculated to be a successor to the Netflix-enabled LG Revolution.

Interestingly enough, the leaked MAP document reveals the device names, but the screen shot does not reveal the pricing information.

These devices will mark the second wave of 4G LTE superphones available on Verizon Wireless complete with high-end features of today. When the first wave of LTE smartphones were launched–the HTC Thunderbolt, Samsung Droid Charge, and LG Revolution–those devices were straddling yesterday’s specs and today’s specs with WVGA displays and single-core processors. These new devices will boost performance and provide the specs to carry users forward into tomorrow.

For one, the Motorola Droid Bionic will come equipped with a dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP4 chipset. The HTC Vigor will increase the performance to a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU complete with the Adreno 220 GPU. Like the latest crop of HTC superphones, the Vigor may also sport a qHD display and will join the Droid Bionic in offering high resolution screens on Android.

The LG device’s specs are currently unknown, but its model number LG-VS920 could suggest that the device will be an update to the LG Revolution, which sported the LG-VS910 model number.

There is also a last device from HTC that’s on the list. There isn’t much details about that one, but it is speculated that the HTC device may be just a silver refresh of the HTC Droid Incredble 2.

For those who haven’t joined the 4G LTE revolution on Verizon Wireless, are these more powerful and more capable devices enough to get you to upgrade?

    I think the question could be extended to ask people if these phones are enough to get you to jump to Verizon as well.  If these phones work well and have at least decent battery life then I would go to Verizon.

    Maybe.  I’ve been waiting so long, I’ve kind of given up.

    Thinking if I wait a tad longer I can dump Verizon.

    Neither Motorola nor Verion seem to be able to get things right recently.  I’m about to give up on both.

    Anticipating getting the HTC Vigor when my contract is up again around May 2012. Wonder if it will have 3D, also. Who knows. By second quarter 2012, they will probably have something other than the Vigor anyway. 

    I definitely want HTC, though, and here’s why:  I accidentally left my phone on the roof of my car, and pulled out onto the road, went about a quarter mile down the road, and then I noticed the phone fall off the roof. I pulled over, backed up, retrieved the phone – now in three parts – front case, back case, and battery. Guess what? BARELY A SCRATCH on the lower right corner of the plastic casing, and NO DAMAGE AT ALL to the screen. The phone still works perfectly. HTC build quality is top notch.

    i think its fake im not an expert but…..the whole point of the MAP chart is to have the MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICE. So why would they put out the minimum advertised price chat without the minimum advertised price. Even if it was leaked.
