Droid Incredible 4G Launching Soon?

There have been several signs that have pointed to an imminent launch of the rumored HTC Droid Incredible 4G and today, we have yet another one as the phone’s predecessor, the Droid Incredible 2, has gone out of stock at Verizon.

First discovered by Droid-Life, the Droid Incredible 2 is now listed as being out of stock on Verizon’s website. The shortage says that it’s only temporary but this is a phone that has been out for a year so it’s possible that Verizon might never replenish the stock.

Verizon hasn’t been secretive about its plans to clear the Droid Incredible 2 from its inventory. Just a short time ago, the carrier slashed the price of the device all the way down to zero dollars on contract, which is generally a sign that something new is on the way.

Droid Incredible 4G Launch Incoming?

That something new is likely going to be the Droid Incredible 4G, a device that will run on the company’s 4G LTE network.

As it stands, the device is rumored to be launching on April 26th, price unknown, and the fact that the stock of the Droid Incredible 2 is a good sign that the launch may indeed happen that day.

Of course, Verizon hasn’t announced anything as of yet, but those familiar with the carrier will know that it often times does not announce a phone until shortly before its launch date.

The HTC Droid Incredible 4G is supposedly going to be Verizon’s Droid-branded version of the HTC One S, a device that will be heading to T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network in the near future.

It has leaked out several times on camera, confirming its existence, and while its specifications have yet to be announced, we have a pretty good read on them.

The Droid Incredible 4G is said to feature:

  • qHD resolution display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 8MP rear camera with zero shutter lag
  • VGA front camera
  • NFC support
  • Beats Audio (no headphones included)
  • 4G LTE
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense 4.0

The processor is rumored to be a Snapdragon S4, the same processor in the One S, and the display is rumored to be 4-inches in size.

Hopefully, we’ll hear something official soon.

    How is this news? I think the DINC2 has been out of stock for several days. VZW just got done running a sale on all of the older Droids. The Droid 3 and LG Revolution are also out of stock. Yes, the stars have been aligning for the DINC 4G and we’ll probably see it next week. 4/26 is a Thursday and VZW likes to launch on Thursdays.

    Put a big battery in this and I will camp out overnight to be first in line. Otherwise, who cares. I ak sick of my phone (thunderbolt), but have no compelling reason to upgrade yes.

      The S4 processor (and the smaller-than-most screen) should make it pretty dang good on battery, despite whatever the mAh number ends up being.
