Leaked Verizon roadmap includes HTC Droid Incredible X, LG Spectrum 2, and many more
Well, well, look what someone was kind enough to slip under the door this morning! Thanks to a tipster of ours, we now have a long list of upcoming Verizon smartphones, and to our delight, some pretty exciting specimens are present on it, along with specs and projected release dates.

To start, the HTC Droid Incredible X, which we've been hearing about recently, is listed as a device with a 5-inch display and a quad-core processor. In other words, this really might turn out to be the first "phablet" on the carrier's Droid lineup. The document also mentions the smartphone's model number, ADR6435LVW, and the presence of 4G LTE connectivity. If everything goes according to plan, the Droid Incredible X should launch in November.

Next up we have the rumored LG Spectrum II, which is a rebranded version of the LG Optimus LTE II. Thanks to previous leaks, we kind of know what that smartphone is going to look like. Specs include a 4.7-inch screen (most likely of the TrueHD kind), a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 8-megapixel camera, NFC, 2,150mAh battery, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. Expect seeing the LG Spectrum II land on Verizon shelves in early October.

In addition, Verizon will be giving Windows Phone another shot by launching three WP8 smartphones. The Samsung ATIV S, the Nokia Lumia 920, and the HTC Windows Phone 8X are all listed on the leaked roadmap, with November penciled as a potential release time frame.

Waiting for RIM to release a new, exciting smartphone? Verizon appears to have a BlackBerry 10 full touchscreen handset in its plans, but it won't be out earlier than Q1 of 2013. The smartphone we are most likely dealing with is the BlackBerry 10 device that leaked just days ago.

Some less exciting smartphones that are present in the roadmap include the Samsung Stratosphere 2, which we've already heard about already. Rumor has it that the smartphone will offer a large Super AMOLED Plus display, 8-megapixel camera, and a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. But most importantly, the handset will sport a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, for folks who still can't figure out on-screen keypads. The smartphone is expected to launch later this month.

The Pantech Breakout is to be replaced by the Pantech Perception, yet the latter's hardware specs are not yet known. There is a couple of ZTE tablets scheduled to launch before Q3 is out – a 7-inch and a 10-inch model, but the latter might have been cancelled already. 

Of course, don't forget that some of the information above may be inaccurate as it has been provided by an unofficial source. On the other hand, our tipster has provided us with reliable intelligence before, so we have a reason to trust them. Which one of the devices we mentioned are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments!

Thanks for sending this in!

UPDATE: The Motorola DROID RAZR HD is scheduled to launch in the middle of Q4, according to the leaked document. The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD is also penciled for a November release.

I like the total absence of any Razr models. Come on, Verizon, just release them already.

If this is true I am getting the 920 under contract and purchasing the 8X full retail

LG Spectrum 2 will easily be out shined by the LG Blaze which is due to be released around the same time.

Did I read that right Big Red is getting the 920? My prayers have been answered! I thought they were only getting the 820.

All three WP 8 flagships??? After having none since the Dinosaurs died and the Earth cooled?? That is a blast!! Liking the choices. Boy the DINK X is probably an extremely important device for HTC, who needs to answer all the sliding sales with a hit. Love the QWERTY. Option. The Droid 4 is still the King, but we love options. Verizon now has choices in every category and every OS. AT&T's only advantage may be gone.

snowgator, to me the Nokia Lumia 920 is the only choice for WP8. The Samsung Stratosphere 2 with the dual-core S4 is awesome for the qwerty. I am still waiting to see this mysterious HTC phablet. To me the phablets will be between the Samsung Galaxy Note II & the HTC 5" phablet. For regular Android smartphone the LG Blaze is the only choice. That phone looks so epic. You are so right Verizon is definitely where it's at this holiday season. The best service with the best phones.

This is great news! I was looking into buying my wife an HTC Trophy but its only 3G. She's been spoiled with an HTC Thunderbolt (Running on LTE of course), so this is great! I'm trying to get us both to switch over to WP8 devices! Let the good times roll ^_^

I have the Trophy and my GF has the Samsung Charge on LTE and my Trophy is consistently faster on it's old 3G than her phone is on LTE. Also, as I travel quite a bit, the Trophy is a bonus as it is a "global phone"!

I sure hope this is true about the Nokia Lumina 920.

Unfortunately, Nokia SUCKS at marketing and deliverability at the moment. I'm seriously hoping for them to get their act together on that part, but... Not entirely convinced they have what it takes to pull that part off.

Folks if this is true that Verizon will have a CDMA Nokia Lumia 920 then Nokia at last has expanded it's USA Flagship smart phone presence and is truly now back in the USA Market like it should be. I like Nokia and am a Windows smart phone Fan and a Verizon customer who has been looking for this a long time now. I want Nokia to survive and still think it can but I still believe it has to make a high end Android smart phone to sell to that segment of the smart phone market to make enough money to get back into the black. I also think they need to make a Windows 8 Pro not a Windows RT tablet computer because th Windows 8 Pro has plenty of programs already available for People to use from the Windows full OS PC/Laptop library.

Anyone have a guess for how much that HTC phablet will sell for? I'm really interested in either this or the SGS3.

Hey jerk.. some of us NEED a QWERTY Keyboard due to large hands.. Its not that we "Can't figure out" the onscreen keyboard its just its slower then heck. Also no tactile feel of the buttons, and it covers over half the screen.. real annoying when filling out things online. So the QWERTY fans have legitimate reasons for wanting a keyboard.. and its not because "We cant figure it out"

I have ginormous fingers and qwerty keyboards are unusable unless I use fingernails. On screen keyboards are much better, imo, than tactile for us big fingered folks. Maybe that's what he means you should figure out =P. I'm only kidding, to each his own.

A large screen (4.3-4.7") device doesn't help?

At least their carrying FLAGSHIP Windows Phones 8. I just can't believe that the windows phone that I have was their ONLY model using 7.5 that they carried. Like WTF, Verizon?

Lumia 920 is the only phone that could get me to switch to Verizon. These phablets seem like they were designed for Americans who think Hummers are a good automobile choice. Really silly.

Although I do like larger screens (maybe not gigantic ones, as you mention). This truly made me laugh!

Positively surprised on the kind of reception the Lumia 920 is getting. Makes me hopeful that we at last have a REAL ecosystem competitor on our hands.

I was INCHES away from joining AT&T or T-Mo... But if it is true, NOKIA LUMIA 920 AND, not or, HTC Windows Phone 8X!!!

THREE. WINDOWS. PHONE. 8. PHONES. And all are flagships. I just hope Verizon backs up these three Windows Phone phones with marketing they truly deserve.
