HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE delayed until July 5th?
The last word we had on the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE was that the device would be launched on June 21st. Considering that the calendar has passed on that date and the model was not released, obviously the original information was wrong, or else there is a delay. It is the latter that sources for Droid-Life are using to explain the lack of a launch on Thursday. And that would seem to make sense considering that some Verizon stores had started to receive signage for the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE nearly two weeks ago.

The latest speculation being thrown out is a new launch date of July 5th. Considering that would leave only 5 days for the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE to make its mark at Verizon before the Samsung Galaxy S III comes, we'd say that the delay must have been simply unavoidable to put the phone in the position that it now faces. The latest MAP list for Big Red shows the model priced at $149.99 which we understand will be the price following a $50 mail-in-rebate. The carrier obviously was forced to price the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE below the $199.99 price it will be asking for the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III.

The HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE will be equipped with a 4 inch qHD Super LCD display with pixel density of 275ppi. Under the hood you will find a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 with 1GB of RAM on board. 8GB of native storage is included and that can be expanded with the 32GB capacity microSD slot. The 8MP camera on back has AF, an LED flash and an aperture of f/2.2. Video is captured in 1080p and there is a .3MP front-facing shooter. A 1700mAh battery powers the device which will features Sense 4.0 running on top of Android 4.0.
