Possible HTC Droid Incredible 3 leaks with Android 4.0, LTE

HTC Droid Incredible 3 may go 2-core, Android 4

A telling scoop Friday has shown that Verizon plans at least one more HTC Droid Incredible phone. The hardware seen by Phone Arena, known at least temporarily as the Droid Incredible 3, would be a major leap in speed over the Droid Incredible 2 with both LTE-based 4G and a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon. The hardware is conspicuously using the same Android 4.0 plus Sense 4.0 interface as the Ville and could be the first US phone to get the updated layer.

HTC is purportedly returning to AMOLED after shortages made it drop the technology after the original run of Droid Incredible models in 2010. Other hardware changes may be conservative, since it would carry 1GB of RAM and the same eight-megapixel rear and VGA (0.3-megapixel) front cameras. In spite of using Android 4.0, it would still have hardware navigation keys, at least in prototype form.

The back confirms that it's a new device as it keeps the same "topographical" look of the Droid Incredible line but in a new, more angular shape. The white hints that Verizon might not wait for a special edition to go beyond black.

A possibility exists that the future phone will pop up internationally as a new Incredible variant, much like the Incredible S did. On Verizon, it's more likely to get an introduction at or near the CTIA's spring show in May, where US-centric phones usually get an appearance.
