doubt htc people would be very forthcoming with info...

There are rumors (yeah just more what we need) this is merely a mid-level phone and the heavy player here, Razr HD (aka Droid Fighter), will be using the same S4 SoC.

I'm not so sure about that 8GB but hopefully it'll include an SD slot for expansion. VGA front face camera isn't an issue but the heavy disappointment has to be no NFC support. I think Verizon hates the idea of Google Wallet :P

I kind of need a 4G phone very soon since I'm relocating to an area without a decent land line broadband connection and plan to tether to my PC.

I love my Droid X but it is showing its limits. If I upgrade now, I can renew once again just in time for the Tegra 4 LTE phones.

Verizon is gave me an option to upgrade to 4G all the way since last year October when I scheduled for renew this year August.

+1 here(Well I am not disappointed)! Just going to wait it out and see what this phone is actually like. I have an upgrade as well, but won't use it to get this phone on contract, also agree I will not buy a Moto phone. I think they are plain ugly designs.. I have no issue at all hanging onto my original Dinc...

I miss when the Incredible was actually Incredible. I don't have LTE in my area yet, I'm thinking of just getting an extended battery for my Incredible 2 and waiting until LTE makes it here and see what is available then.

Droid Incredible 4G LTE Pops Up Again On Camera – Exposes NFC Capabilities
Really hoping it's an early may, and not mid or late may. I CAN"T WAIT MUCH LONGER... But if its released at anything above 149$, I will wait for the price to drop to at least 149$ or 99$. Anyways, I'm really liking the look of this device. Absolutely perfect for me. The only thing that will be the deal breaker for me is the price.

There's a guy who has the phone on reddit and is willing to answer any questions you guys have. http://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/ss5q1/got_my_hands_on_the_htc_droid_incredible_4g_lte/

Also he posted an album of pictures: http://imgur.com/a/L053y

Edit: I also asked the guy a few questions on there. He says that HTC was having a "Product Training" event for the phone, and representatives from stores were chosen and sent to this event. This guy just happened to be randomly selected to go to this. This means launch will most likely happen within the next week or so!

awesome info. maybe the camera will have most of the features that the one series has. the rep i talked to face to face today said no burst mode for the incredible 4g.i hope he was wrong. after watching him demo that feature, it was something i want to have onboard my next device i'll use it for evaluating my golf swing.

So I remember going through this anticipation 2 years ago with the OG Inc. Back then, we got promises of car docks and other wonderful accessories.

This time round, there's just mention of an extended battery.

Big V is even getting stingy with its teases...

This has to be one of the most promising leaks I've seen in a while. Even though this isn't official this guy was very informative. I think my faith and patience has been fully restored and will wait a couple of more weeks for this.

Can we assume that the extended battery will fit inside the regular back cover since nothing has been mentioned about a deeper cover to accomodate a thicker battery? Don't want a thicker phone. Hopefully the reduced rez screen and uderclocking will give me enough battery if a thicker phone is the alternative. A car dock would also be nice.

Do we need an extra battery? That is my question. The OG DInc needed one. The DInc2 didn't.

One of the more interesting comments made by that guy was that there was no SD card included.

A couple reddit commenters were getting pissy about it, but whatever... I have a couple 16GB SD cards (one from DX is sitting in a plastic bag somewhere in my closet), so if that helps bring down the price, good for them.

Oh, and after reading that link, I cannot WAIT until I get my hands on the Inc4G!

Original Dinc owner here. I like my phone, its size and capabilities. I have an extended battery for it and it lasts 1.5 days and fits well in my jean's front pocket. These are my primary wishes for my next phone, size and capabilities. I loved the Rezound but it was just too big and in order to get it to last I would have to add an extended battery that made it a brick.

The Dinc4G looks like it will fit my requirements, mainly it being 4" or below in size, has 4G and will have Sense4.0 and ICS.

Will test it out in the store or maybe take it for a 14day spin. I hope the new processor is good on the battery.

Price does factor in too, I hope it is 200 or below.

No SD card doesn't matter to me. Presumably you have one with your old phone. Do you need another one?

The read is interesting. The main things I'm interested in are wireless charging (love it) and battery life. I need to know what the battery life is on this phone. If it's closer to the Rezound than the DInc2, it's a pass for me.

Yeah, battery life is a big factor for me, too. I can get 24+ hours out of my Inc2. I figure the Inc4G will fall between that and the 8 hours of the Rezound. As long as I can make it through a day, I don't care if it's at 10% or 50% when I put it on the charger at night.

Maybe it wasnt in the demo unit? Not a deal breaker. Cards are cheap.

You get 8 hours on the Rezound? I'm a bit impressed. I got 6-7 if I was lucky. It was the main reason I took it back. I'm sorry, but suggestions like "turn of LTE" are just stupid. Why buy an LTE phone if you're not going to use the LTE on it?

Because lte isn't needed for everything. Unless you are streaming videos or downloading large files lte is just killing the battery for nothing.

You say similar things about data in general. I've seen people on here brag about how they get 3-4 days of battery life with their phone. They do this by turning off data on their phone. If they want to check email or something, they turn data on and then off again. To me this is equally ridiculous. Why get a smart phone and use it as a dumb phone?

Would it be too much to ask the phone to be inherently capable of managing its own power? I already have a day job, and don't want/need to babysit my phone's battery (like I've been doing for 2 yrs on my original DInc). And I shouldn't have to configure Tasker or some other app to automate the process, either.

If you have a day job it shouldnt be that hard to change it from lte/cdma to cdma in the morning and you are good to go. Its a new tech if you are going to bitch about it not lasting get a 3g phone then.

I never said turn off data. Turning off lte and turning off data are 2 completely different things. The phone still functions plenty fine with 3g only. But of course people always will complain about something.
And by your logic since I have a car that can go 100+ mph I should expect to get the same gas mileage doing 100 as when I do 60.

Ergh May 10th... thats so far away. Hopefully its sooner than that. They are already having product training for it so I dont see why they would wait 2 weeks to release it.

Training usually goes for like a week/ week and a half. It's only two weeks you will make it

I personally think May 10th is a good thing. I've been eligible since January to upgrade, I just haven't been wowed by anything (and been waiting for 2nd gen LTE chips). With Samsung showing th GS3 on the 3rd, I'll know if I want to wait for that, get the INC4G, or even wait for the rumored 5in HTC phone in the fall. My DInc has served me well and don't have any major issues, so I'm good for waiting for a phone with wow factor

The upgrade isn't much of a deal any more. $50 off for the upgrad and a $30 fee to do the upgrade. A $20 discount! Whoop-de-do.

I think in this day and age the upgrade refers to the subsidized price of the phone, not the final measly discount we get that's being cancelled out by a fee.

And by your logic since I have a car that can go 100+ mph I should expect to get the same gas mileage doing 100 as when I do 60.
Why buy a 4G phone to use it nearly exclusively on 3G? That makes no sense to me.

It's not exclusively on 3g. Plus you don't need 4g for most normal tasks. But like I said you can say that about anything you buy if you don't use it to the top that it is meant to do which you don't...

That makes no sense to me. If 4G is a battery killer then the phone should turn it off until needed. If I can program Tasker to do that then Google and hTC should be able to handle that minor programming chore.

I think that would end up wasting more battery than conserving it? Because then there would have to be an additional automated task manager running in the background

It's not going to be 300$. Would you buy it at 149$? Perhaps even 99$? Because that's price it'll likely end up being.

Hopefully 99, but more likely 149 or 199. The lucid or whatever just came out at 99 and it certainly lacks the capabilities of the inc4g.

On a side note, I just wanted to thank you for pressing the dude on Reddit for more info, we wouldn't have as much info as we do now if it wasn't for you.

Probably not, will hold out this summer, more speculation that Verizon will be releasing some monster phones this summer in Verizon thread.

i think $199 is the most anyone would pay for this phone. for that price, it better come with an sd card.

The Lucid was 79$ as someone said before, and to the average user, has nearly the same specs as the Dinc4G. Most people won't care about the S4 processor because they won't know what it means. 149$ is a lot more reasonable because at 199$ you can get a seemingly higher spec'd phone. I still think it could be priced lower than 149$. And no problem!

If HTC is already selling accessories, I doubt launch is two weeks away. Why would they start selling accessories for it two weeks before it comes out? I still think launch is within the week. We have so many leaks already, it just really makes me doubt that VZW will wait another two weeks when they clearly already have everything set for an announcement. I could be wrong though, I just don't see any reason to wait 2 weeks to announce it. I could be completely wrong though. Who knows what Big Red's tactics are?

The 1700mAh stock battery should give really good battery life, and the extended battery will be more than plenty. I don't think this phone needs a huge 3300mAh battery because it has the S4 processor. I do admit, a larger battery could have been nicer. We can always wait for an unofficial extended battery

I bet it will be fine. The DInc2 came with a 1450mAh battery, and I found a 1900mAh replacement on Ebay for like $15. While I doubt it is actually 1900mAh, it is a good enough improvement to justify spending the money. AND it fits under the OEM battery door, so no brick. I bet we'll be able to find something like this for the DInc4G.

But to me that's like buying a Ferrari and using it to ferry the kids back and forth 5 miles to school and to run to the grocery store a mile a way. Why? That's not what you buy that phone for. My home Internet connection is 25 mbps. I could theoretically install software or set up some system to throttle my connection to 3 mbps when I'm not actively using the computer. Why in the world would I do that though?

You're not complaining about battery life on the home internet because it is plugged in. Terrible comparison nice try though. Here's one for you to wrap your head around, I know it may be difficult but why do you need 4g for loading apps or things like that when you will do it maybe an extra sec or two faster which most wouldnt even notice... If it is that big of a deal either go get a maxx or dont buy this phone. The battery isnt going to magically change for you.....
