News: HTC Vigor Pictures Leak (Full Breakdown)
The HTC Vigor is expected to be a very powerful phone on Verizon, with a full 720p display and a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. Up until now, the only hint of what the device would look like was an indication of the front display given by a Dutch retail site that had advertised the Vigor. Now, pictures of HTC’s finest have leaked, showing large similarities between the Droid Incredible 2, or the HTC Incredible S overseas. Take a look at the pictures below and tell us what you think in the comments.
Judging by the front of the device, HTC looks to have combined the designs of both the HTC Sensation and the HTC Droid Incredible 2. There is a large screen, which appears to be 4.3″ – 4.5″, and is rumored to have a resolution that packs a full HD, 720p display. A front facing camera, hopefully 2MP or higher in resolution is located below the speaker grill, which may or may not have the next-generation audio capabilities that will be coming in HTC devices shortly as a part of the companies acquisition of Beats by Dre. The touch-capacitive buttons look similar to current HTC devices. And lastly, the bezel of the handset is noticeably thinner than most other phones.
On the back of the device, you have the audio jack on the top, followed by a raised back, similar to that of the Droid Incredible and Droid Incredible 2. The camera is also placed similarly to the Incredible 2, with the dual-LED flash located directly next to it. There isn’t a plate or even an engraving on the red outline around the camera that can indicate what the count of pixels are, but we’re hoping for at least a 10, and maybe even a 12MP camera with 1080p video recoding. Below the camera is the same rubberized grip that is found the back of the Toshiba Thrive tablet. I personally don’t like this material as it feels cheap and annoying to hold. Not much more is on the back of the handset except for the obvious fact the the Vigor will be running with HTC Sense, hopefully on top of Android 2.3.5, or 4.0, if announced before the release of the device.
