New images of the HTC Vigor confirm rumored specs

We've been seeing and hearing plenty about the HTC Vigor these days, even the guided video tours have now leaked out. Before those, the media files, live wallpaper and boot animation were all dumped for everyone to enjoy and now some new images have popped up. Aside from the front and back of the device, there is finally some confirmation for the oft rumored specs and the Vigor is running a 1.5GHz processor, Android 2.3.4, a 8MP rear camera with a 2MP shooter on the front and of course that oh so beautiful 4.3-inch HD display and LTE. More pics can be found past the break for you all.

  • 1.5GHz Processor. Is that duel core? And where is Beats by Dre?
  • yes it's dual core.
  • He asked if it was duel core, not dual. He want's to know if the cores fight each other for domination of the phone.
  • you just made my week. thanks!
  • this will be my next phone to replace my tbolt. i hope and pray the lte is more stable on this phone. id also love to know when it will be released as im hearing october?
  • This will be my next device. Goodbye Incredible and hello Incredible HD. Please no Rezound crap!
  • lol what's the difference?
  • It will be rezound lol due beast integration
  • Tell me that isn't the reflection of an iPhone actually taking this photo. LOL.
  • It does look like it.
  • Everything looks like the iPhone, just ask Apple.
  • I love my tbolt, but this phone may be tough to pass up. My only complaint though is no kickstand!
  • Im not a fan of htc but this device is ok, if it comes with the latest architecture a9 will be very good.
  • Sprint needs a new HTC device. The Evo3d wasn't for me. Then again, if they can't cure battery life issues on their phones, another HTC device isn't for me either.
  • theres nothing to cure. the only solution is to ship with larger capacity batteries.
  • well that's what they need to do. Will pass on my next HTC, which are my favorites, due to battery life being poor.
  • anybody hear of a possible release date yet?
  • Still seems like October is the target month. Probably the rumored October 13th nit give it time to sell before the Prime drops.
  • October 20th or the 13th
  • This is running Sense 3.5 but the HTC Rhyme is running Sense 3.5 and they look completely different. What's up with that?
  • maybe fragmentation within sense...
  • I believe the Rhyme's 3.5 sense was skinned with the female demo in mind. There's that charm thing too.
  • HTC Explorer
    HTC Rhyme
    HTC Vigor
    my Touch phones
    they all have different kinds of Sense from the looks of things, the pure version of Sense "Rosie" will be on high end smartphones like Vigor, Runnymede, and Sensation
  • nice.
  • If you look closely at the processor, you can definitively see that it says dual core. Vigor/Prime/SGSII LTE HD/ MOTOROLA RAZR. Verizon has a hell of a line up coming, and quite frankly, I don't know which way to role.
  • who said verizon was getting a sg2?
  • the only phone on your list confirmed for VZW is the Vigor.
  • Ill go with droid razor
  • awesome.
    it's the Thunderbolt v2 with Gingerbread, while the original is still awaiting Gingerbread.
    thank God for root/ROMs.
    homebrew devs>HTC/VZW devs
  • Gingerbread will happen soon enough with all the leaks of test builds. I think the crowd that really has room to complain are the Xoom owners who still don't have 4G.
  • Oh wait nothing special here its vzw version of sensation. Another hand me down phone. Just like following in footsteps of thunderbolt. Geez Louise HTC get creative
  • Save for the LTE and great network coverage.. Its just like the sensation.
  • Yea, besides aHD display, faster processor, more RAM, newer version of Sense and 4G LTE, it's the same. ;)
  • Outdated gpu
  • They could have wiped the finger prints off of the damn thing, ffs!
  • Finally a verizon htc phone that is a worthy upgrade from my Incredible. Can't wait.
  • The Thunderbolt and Incredible S had a dual-core love child.
  • That's exactly what I think when I see this phone
  • Is it cortex a8 or a9 based?
  • .
  • I for one was crossing my fingers for the 4.5" display, which could be a deal breaker. Does anyone know if the Prime will have a larger display, or if VZW has anything in the works for the "plus sized" form factor?
  • dude, to be honest, 4.3 is big enough, we really do not need a phone with a bigger screen than that. How do you fit it in your pocket, holding it up to your ear would just seem ackward at that size. If you are looking for larger you might wanna just buy yourself a small tablet.
  • do you understand the difference in .2" diagonally does to the hieght and width of a phone...... nothing!
  • Really a 4.3 vs a 4.5 would be a deal breaker? You're ridiculous.
  • The styling just screams Incredible HD. Even the earpiece grill is now red. I can't see them naming this the Thunderbolt 2 or Vigor.
  • Is it just me or is that earpeice speaker red? Hmmm, Is it possible we are looking at the Droid Vigor?
  • It's Black and Red because of Beats, much like the Sensation XE is.
  • dpi will be massive on this if the amoled hd 720p screen at 4.65inch is 316dpi than a 4.3inch 720p would be 350dpi or so...thats just super super sharp...only bad thing is that the blacks are still more washed out and dark grey then true black than amoled...still cant wait to get 300+dpi android phone
  • Does anyone know if this is going to have simultaneous voice/data over 3g like the TBolt. Unfortunately, I spend most of my time in 3g at night, so I have been spoiled with this on my TBolt. I didnt realize how great a feature that is until I got the TBolt.
  • The rumor is that it will.
  • I hope this is thinner with better battery life than the thunderbolt, throw in an amazing hacking community and this will be the best phone ever.
  • Here are some more photos: http://www.droid-life.com/2011/09/26/htc-vigor-poses-for-photo-shoot-4-3... Looks a little thick to me. Maybe it could go on diet for the next few weeks? Other than that looks like a killer phone.
  • "Looks a little thick to me." That's what she said! (Sorry, couldn't resist)...
  • Walked right into that one. But is there any other way to describe it?
  • If that means a bigger battery to begin with, I couldn't care less that it's a little thicker
  • I agree. I own a Sprint Epic 4G and it is 15mm thick because of the keyboard. Maybe it's because I'm 6'8" and have giant hands, but 15mm doesn't seem very thick to me at all. If they took all these phones that are 9 to 11 mm thick, and made them all 15 mm thick and filled the extra space with battery, then everyone's phone would last a whole day without charging.
  • I love my Sensation but Sense is getting boring, and its hard on the device. HTC needs to redesign it like Samsung did with touch wiz...... or maybe i just want stock.
  • Looks like a winner if it has good battery life. And is there any touchscreen glass available out there that doesn't smudge and show fingerprints so much that these manufacturers can use??
  • Way I fix it, is car wax. I actually have a full body Ghost Armor, so I car wax the screen protector whenever it starts getting smuges and it gets nice and smooth for weeks, and any smuges it gets are as easy to remove as using your t-shirt.
  • Only thing I'm not a fan of is the back, the plastic looks like it's gonna feel like the Inc2 backing. Not sure if I will jump on this and use one of my upgrades, but a white version may push me over. Hard to imagine putting my BAMF Forever Tbolt running at 1.6ghz away. May just wait for BAMF to release ROM for this bad boy 1st?!
  • No wonder Verizon cosigned with Samsung, apple won't see specs like these for a least another 3yrs. Verizon isn't stupid all these other OEM's are way ahead of apple. They make a killing off phones like this.
  • Just watched one of the vids showing the installation of the sim card by removing the TINY battery. So once again we all have to go out and by a big third party battery. Seems like the phone manufacturers just rely on seidio and others to solve their battery issues. They shouldn't bother to even include the battery and drop the phone price instead. All of my stock batteries just go unused in a drawer.
  • I agree, I haven't used my stock battery in my evo in a year
  • Has anyone heard about HDMI out? I don't see it, but it could be that combo USB/HDMI that some are using. I use HDMI often, since most people do not have wifi tv's yet. Also, just how bloody fat is this thing? I wish they took pics next to other devices so we can see (I know, in time all will be revealed!)...
