HTC Vigor Launching as HTC Vigor?

By  |  38 Comments

The HTC Vigor, among one of the first devices to utilize a higher resolution 720p HD display, has been catching a lot of buzz lately, and it appears that Verizon may have settled on the final branding name for the device. Originally revealed as the HTC Vigor through leaks, it was believed that Vigor may be the codename and not the product name for the next-generation smartphone. Successive leaks suggest that Verizon Wireless may brand the smartphone as the HTC Droid Incredible HD, the HTC Thunderbolt 2, and the HTC Rezound.

Now, with Verizon posting up an accessories page that recommends three generic accessories for the ‘HTC Vigor’ smartphone, there is indeed a greater chance that the carrier has finally agreed to the Vigor branding.

The accessories recommended by the page are for general accessories meant to fit any phone and are not specific to the HTC Vigor itself, but the mention of the un-announced and un-released smartphone on the carrier’s website suggests that the device may be close to landing.

In addition to the 720p HD display, the Vigor is widely believed to sport Beats Audio for an enhanced audio experience following HTC’s announcement that the company had invested in the audio company. The device will be HTC’s second 4G LTE smartphone following the launch of the Thunderbolt, which is the first 4G LTE for both HTC and Verizon Wireless.

      Released? Hell, we’re still waiting for it to be announced. Security issue or not, I can’t get my hands on this device soon enough.

    Awesome phone no matter what it is branded.  However, until HTC provides a fix for their security vulnerability, I won’t even consider buying a HTC phone.

    I looked on the Verizon website and there is nothing showing vigor. Even if you search it. If so paste a link….

    The HTC vigor is going to be good. I think it will be the best phone this year. It surely will be the best made longest lasting phone as the thunderbolt gets that title at the current moment.

    Htc make long lasting phones that are tough and hold up.. Nobody else makes em like htc does. Sense is by far the best operating system. And I’m impressed how well htc phones are made. They make the longest lasting phone. Give the Vigor time it’s going to be good. Right now the thunderbolt is the best phone out and it gets the title. Overall Htc experience is the best and I love sense.

    The Htc vigor going to be good. It will be the best phone this year. It will be the best made longest lasting phone on the market by far…until it’s release it’s the thunderbolt all the way. I love thunderbolt it’s very well made and long lasting.

      Sens is not an operating system. It’s a shell that HTC puts over the operating system (android or windows are the min systems HTS uses)
