Droid Incredible 2: Release Date, But Disappointing Specs List

By Alan Ng - Apr 18, 2011

A few days ago, we informed you that the incoming Droid Incredible 2 handset would be priced at $199 on contract according to a Verizon intel leak, and now we have some even better news for you. Some further leaked information has revealed a release date and a full list of official specs.

You won’t be surprised to hear that the information has once again surfaced from Verizon leak specialists Droid-Life, who have included an image detailing a launch date and list of specifications for the true successor to the Droid Incredible.

That launch date has been scheduled for April 28th, and the date applies to whether you’re buying online, or if you plan to pick one up from retail stores. As for the specs list, it confirms that the device won’t feature a dual-core processor, but instead a 1Ghz Snapdragon Qualcomm chip, an 8 megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash, 720p video recording and a 4-inch capacitive touch screen.

Although not confirmed yet, it also looks likely that this handset won’t be coming with that impressive HTC Sense 3.0 UI. It looks like you’ll get the bog standard version instead on top of Android 2.2 Froyo.

Dare we say it, but the specs are a little disappointing don’t you think? No dual-core processor, no gingerbread, no 1080p video recording and no HTC Sense 3.0. Considering that this handset is carrying the tag of Droid Incredible ‘successor’, we feel HTC could have spent a little more time making the device a little more appealing to consumers.

Check out the full list over at Droid-Life and let us know your thoughts on this. Are you as disappointed with the Droid Incredible 2 specs as we are?

    I say it's a good successor. Even the HTC Thunderbolt and Samsung Droid Charge lack the dual-core processor, and it seems like that's mostly what's dragging the Motorola Bionic back from working with the 4G LTE. I, for one, am glad there's a new Droid coming out NOT with 4G LTE. It's battery draining, and I'm willing to forego a little speed with battery life and the fact that it's global. Making it global makes it definitely a marketable point.

    Incredibly boring. The only thing its missing is battery draining LTE.
