    What do you get when you put the HTC Droid Incredible on a strict diet of protein shakes and bench presses? From the looks of it, the HTC Vigor a device rumored to be Verizon’s next big 4G LTE contender. The stylings of the handset are definitely reminiscent of the Incredible and Incredible 2, but the screen appears gargantuan in size with some additional texturing on the battery cover. From the pictures we can gather the phone will carry HTC Sense, a front-facing camera, and a dual-flash setup on the rear.

    Rumors we have heard elsewhere have pointed towards an HD 720p display, 1GB of RAM, and a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU. It may also be among the first HTC handsets to make use of the companies recent Beats by Dre acquisition. Rumors are already pointing towards an October 6th release, but you know how counting your chickens before they hatch goes.

    I'm really not sure how I feel about this. Biggest turn off for me is the camera... looks like designing on... a beats product

    Its stupid to say that it looks like the design on a BEATS product because the Incredible is almost just like this.

    Agreed. It looks quite nice actually, and as long as the beats audio can be disabled, the device should be fine.
    For the record: beats audio on a touchpad=unhealthy, narrow frequency bass boost that drowns out vocals, mids, and trebled. Beats audio is still a disaster compared to DSP manager audio.

    I doubt the BEATS will have an On and Off option. To me it sounds ridiculous lol.

    Looks decent, hopefully they can bring different back styles for the phone for the ones who don't like that style.

    Doubt there going to put "4gLTE" on the back of every phone. Just the first few that come out to rep. It.

    Phone looks amazing btw

    If HTC can get a solid release date announced they could trump the Bionic big time and should be able to swing some customers over. Every time I read those specs it makes me drool!

    I think the red circle around the camera is a great idea, it gives the subject, if a person, something to focus on.

    +1 on the necessity to edit in the news, it's ridiculous.

    The only thing the Vigor has on the Bionic is clock speed, screen resolution, and Beats Audio, right? Honestly not that huge of a difference given the additional battery use the Vigor will yield due to it's impressive high resolution screen. Personally I'd rather have a hacked Bionic than a regular Vigor for this reason... though the audio upgrade would be nice.
