Nowadays, it's not often that we come across some blurrycam shots of a device and don't know what it is, but that's exactly the case here. Luckily, the shots do reveal some information, and there a few other things we can surmise from there.

Assuming they make it into the final product (this is, after all, a prototype), here's what we're looking at for organs:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP camera on the back, VGA front-facing camera
  • WiFi (presumably up to 802.11n) and Bluetooth
  • Android 4.0.1 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • HTC's Sense 4.0
  • LTE

All in all, nothing really impressive, but a respectable showing for a mid-range smartphone.

The phone looks an awful lot like the other devices in HTC's Incredible lines (so... could this be a new Incredible?), and judging by the red wallpaper (bottom left, above) and "4G LTE" logo on the bootscreen (bottom right), could be headed to Verizon. Otherwise, we can catch a few glimpses of Sense 4.0 above - and really, while it still kinda craps all over the beauty that is Ice Cream Sandwich, it at least looks like HTC tried to integrate some ICS touches.

    HTC's phones is more and more starting to look like iPhones :p

    • Merk

      Not with those hardware buttons when it's running ICS.

    • John

      how does that look like an iphone?

  • Jason

    God Sense 4.0 looks like total crap. Why can't they just make it a standalone launcher that's able to be themed and allow us to uninstall it??? :(

    • John

      use golauncher or nova launcher, which is specifically made for ICS

    One of the screens on pocket now shows the Verizon 4G logo

    There is a picture on the source link showing the Verizon 4G LTE logo on what appears to be a loading screen. I think it's safe to say this is the Droid Incredible 3.

      Oh, duh. Right you are, thanks... updated the post :)

  • tommy

    And by Pocket now I meant Phone Arena

      Updated the post, thanks :)

    Htc Incredible 3? Or 3d? (lol) since it's only a prototype, no sense on rushing to judgement but the specs on the final product have got to be better than what's present otherwise Htc might start preparing towards another quarterly loss. And if Htc is listening; skin enabling/ disabling, Amoled hd/ nova/ hd ips-lcd display, better battery power management/ efficiency, unlocked bootloader & timely updates for ensuring your comeback.

      The Dinc2 was barely better than the original DInc, so I can see this being the DInc3. If this device is more than $100-150 then yeah it will not sell but if it is sold as an entry level device it could make a nice addition to the lineup.

    So is it just me or is that launcher not properly aligned?

    When did dual core 1.2 ghz lte become mid range

    • Aaron

      Because this phone isn't released yet... We have been seeing dual core 1.2 ghz phones for months now; by the time it is released it will be mid-range.

    HTC should fire whole graphic designer team and hire new one or stick with beatiful ICS stock skin... I am sorry but this is just horrible :-/ It looks like some badly themed custom ROM

      HTC is clinging onto sense like American sports car makers are clinging onto the 60's/70's pinstripe. It makes no sense (no pun intended) anymore if it's not done tastefully. And this isn't. It's slopped on there like a shitty halloween costume.

  • reala

    If I cant turn of sense I wont buy a phone with sense. Sense was good in the begining, but now I can do without it. I like to change the look and feel of my phone from time to time, and sense gets in the way of that.

    I am no android purist, but I prefer CM over a sense rom. I have a sense phone, I don't want or need another

  • Mark

    YAWN! Looks just like every other HTC phone released in the last year or so.

  • wgasa

    i will concede that ICS is prettier than sense but after running an AOSP ROM on my phone for a while i had to switch back to sense. there are some things that sense just does better than AOSP. (HTC sensation running ARHD)
