HTC Vigor shows up listed on a retailer's website
Boy, that HTC Vigor is sure shaping up to be one beast of a smartphone, if its rumored specs are to be believed, of course. With a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 4.3-inch display boasting the jaw-dropping resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels, this might very well be the next flagship handset in the company's broad portfolio. Unfortunately, as inspiring and impressive as all of the Vigor's alleged tech specs may sound, the rumor mill has not been very generous on images hinting what the device may actually look like when it finally sees the light of day.

However, the guys over at The Phone House, a popular Dutch online retailer, reportedly put the HTC Vigor on their website, albeit for only a short time, along with a photo and a brief specs sheet. We did a quick check and found out that the smartphone is not in the retailer's database right now, but a screenshot of the listing was taken and is already circulating the web. Could the image simply be a forgery? Certainly! But on the other hand, the device in the shot looks slightly different from all the other HTC models that we have seen before, so there is still a chance that we may be looking at the real deal.

The HTC Vigor hardware specs listed in the screenshot line up seamlessly with what the rumors have suggested, namely that the smartphone will pack not only the powerful silicon and the gorgeous display that we mentioned earlier, but also an 8-megapixel camera, a secondary front-facing shooter, and a dose of Beats audio for a more satisfying multimedia experience. In terms of software, we have Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread in charge running with a dash of HTC Sense 3.5 on top.

If that leaked Verizon roadmap is correct, the HTC Vigor is expected to land on Verizon's shelves no later than October 5.

Thanks, Eugen!
