There's little that we didn't already know about HTC's upcoming DROID Incredible 2, but if there was any lingering doubt on your mind, you'll be happy to hear that Droid Life has acquired the official spec sheet for the device:

incredible-2-launch1-600x450

Indeed, the Incredible 2 will feature a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4-inch SLCD display, SRS WOW HD surround sound, a 16GB microSD card, an 8MP camera, and Android 2.2 out of the box. But you probably already knew that.

What you might not have realized is that the phone will sport a global radio, meaning that, just as with the DROID Pro and DROID 2 Global, you'll be able to connect to a GSM network (likely Vodafone's) while abroad. Unfortunately, this dual GSM/CDMA connectivity comes with a price: no LTE.

As we heard previously, the Incredible 2 will launch in "All Channels" on April 28th, though its price has not yet been publicized. However, given its comparatively small display, rather diminutive SD card, and nonexistent 4G radio, we wouldn't expect its price tag to be too high - a welcome difference from some of Verizon's other future handsets.

    no dual core, ships with froyo when everyone else is shipping with gingerbread, and no 4g. I was expecting a lot more from htc especially given the success of the first incredible. Why would anyone would buy this over the thunderbolt?

  • Jaime

    If it was either duel-core, LTE, or had NFC i'd be ALL over this. But really? They upped the screen, added a tiny bit more RAM, and added a camera. Big whoop.

    Considering I'm a owner of the first Incredible, I'm disappointed in this model giving the fact that with all the new phones coming are going dual-core, 4g & lte and none of that with this model but siblings such as evo 3d and sensation get that love.... Oh well

    When did a 4" display become known as "comparatively small"?

      Small compared to most high-end smartphones today.

    Why ppl complaining it would have been dumb to adds those features because it would hhave been exactly the same as thunderbolt just with smaller screen. I love android but Verizon is becoming android happy and it not needed to have all these android devices . They need tto be like sprint make one good phone as flag ship then have 3 or 4 other android thst aa little differ .

      I think verizon customers (especially Droid incredible 1 users) have a legitimate reason to complain. It doesn't make sense for verizon to put out a phone with outdated hardware and software just for the sake of being different from the other phones it is releasing. When the incredible 1 came out it was ahead of its time, the only phone better was the evo in terms of hardware. Once you have that reputation with a line of phones, you can't make the second iteration of the phone outdated at launch. I agree that putting the mentioned specs would make it a thunderbolt clone, but leaving it out makes it a thunderbolt wannabe. They should've added something else to the phone to make it a worthy alternative to the tbolt (and making it global can't be an excuse or compromise for its outdated tech). Maybe the price will justify the specs...

        Well they are shooting for a price point not just doing it to be different.

        The lower specs are meant to attract buyers who won't spend the extra buck on specs they know or care nothing about.

    This is actually great news to those of us who have D2G or a Droid Pro.

    Right now we are very poorly supported because we are the only "Global" phones out there. (Not all of us really need 4G especially in areas where 4G just doesn't exist which is a lot if you travel)

    If someone should decide to develop for this unit then it should be quite portable to the D2G who without Fission and the Romer D2 patcher would basically be forced to use stock MotoBlur!

    Own an Incredible 1. Can't figure out why I'd bother with an Incredible 2. Same question my fanboy friends are asking themselves about their iPad2's.

    Where I live we aren't promised 4G for another 1.5 yrs. Way I see it, I'm not spending $250+ on a phone that I can't use as intended. I'd rather have a top end 3G for time being. It's rumored to have a $199.99 price tag with a 2yr contact. I like it better than the other Verizon 3G phones (other than the Droid X which is too bulky for me.) I can't wait for it's release so I can trash the Blackberry!
