HTC’s Jeff Gordon recently said that “Verizon is not going to be carrying either of the HTC One devices currently announced.” This also means that the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE some people were hoping would be the Verizon One isn’t a One series phone at all.
The Incredible 4G LTE actually uses a different Qualcomm chip from the One X. It isn’t the same chip but underclocked. It’s also missing the ImageChip present in the One series, though it has a very similar camera sensor. Hopefully this won’t affect the quality of the photos too much.
Is Verizon to blame? Did they choose to sell a phone that’s different from the One Series? It’s definitely a disappointment, considering the HTC One S is a superior phone to the Incredible 4G LTE, from the screen to the materials used. The Incredible is all plastic. Verizon users, are you disappointed you aren’t getting an HTC One X, in all its ceramic glory? Tell us in the comments!
