It's Pentile technology probably. So that means it's not REALLY HD.

I thought HTC learned from the Incredible not to play with Samsung displays. And while Moto cheated and used PenTile for their qHD, HTC went with true RGB.

It is not pentile. It is super LCD which don't use Pentile, it use RGB.

The Incredible S is the name for the Droid Incredible 2 in the rest of the world. So no, it's won't be an S. If anything, it will be the Incredible HD.

The new HTC phones (Sensation, EVO 3D, etc) are narrower than older ones like the EVO, Thunderbolt, HD2, etc. They changed from WVGA 15:9 screens to true HD (either qHD or in this case 720p) 16:9 ratio. So even though the diagonal size is the same (4.3"), the screen is in fact longer and skinnier.

I think I like the 15:9 better..

The EVO and TBolt feel too wide to me. 16:9 is natural HD, so videos will run at native aspect. Seems a natural progression for the HD age.

I think most likely it will be some type of incredible. Too bad it took too long to release and my old phone had to go.

How long will it take to get Ice Cream Sandwich? Because all of these manufacturers bs'd when gingerbread came out, now everyone is just going to get a nexus.

Do want prob will get ics soon after release and will run sense 3.5 which is better than samsungs garbage. may get this instead of the nexus specially since this will probably be out sooner.

Expect to see this launched no later than the first week of November, if not sooner. Yes it will have a 720p resolution with all the other specs.

There are reports that it went back to the FCC and now includes wireless charging. Please confirm Pone Arena.
