Details & Pictures Of HTC Incredible 2 Available Online

The first photos of the HTC Incredible 2 which is set to be launched on Verizon Wireless, has appeared online thanks to an Android fan website.

Androidspin (opens in new tab) posted more details about the handset which runs on Android Gingerbread with Sense UI but unfortunately doesn't have much to match the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S II or the LG Optimus 2X.

The device is the CDMA version of the Incredible S which was launched by HTC in February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona; the Incredible S has gone on sale exclusively at Carphone Warehouse on O2, T-Mobile and Vodafone from as little as £25 per month (but without internet access).

Physically, the HTC Incredible S lies between the HTC Desire S and the HTC Desire HD; it has a 4-inch Super LCD screen, a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, an 8-megapixel rear one, a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 system on chip running at 1GHz (Scorpion core and Adreno 205), a 1450mAh battery, 768MB RAM and 4GB onboard storage.

It also shares the same design as the HTC Incredible S which some may or may not like. We have had our doubts as to why HTC is deliberately holding back on the hardware specifications of its latest phones.

We guess that HTC is doing an "Apple", being fashionably late to the show. Expect HTC to launch a number of handsets, including the legendary HTC Pyramid in Q3 and Q4.
