Droid Incredible 2 seen in real life
Verizon's upcoming HTC Droid Incredible 2 got its first live appearance in a sighting on Saturday. The phone is, as expected, a very close variant of the Incredible S with some new trim and Verizon's badging. AndroidSpin's view only caught Android 2.2 with HTC's Sense UI, but it's now expected to go to 2.3 by the time the phone launches.
The phone may stay on 3G, but it will still be one of Verizon's more advanced phones with a four-inch screen, an eight-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front camera and a second-generation 1GHz Snapdragon processor. HTC would still give it the 4GB of built-in storage from the original Incredible, but it would get a large 768MB of RAM and a substantial 1,450mAh battery. A source wouldn't give more details than to say it was "super nice" to use.
Details of the launch haven't popped up, but the Droid Incredible 2 might tip up at the CTIA show in late March. Verizon launched the original Droid Incredible in April and might hope to mark the one-year anniversary with its sequel, but this hasn't been confirmed.
