One took photos, while another dissected a ROM Update Utility file (RUU) of the HTC Vigor–two different enterprises that resulted in a more-or-less unofficial confirmation of the HTC Vigor’s specs and features.
According to the two different sources, the HTC Vigor will have the following specs and features in tow when Verizon Wireless unleashes it:
dual-core 1.5-GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 processor
Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread
4.3-inch screen at HD (720p) resolution, with pixel density of 320
HTC Sense 3.5
1 GB of RAM
8-megapixel primary camera
2-megapixel secondary camera
Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity
An anonymous photographer took photos of the HTC Vigor’s front, back, and edges and sent the images to a senior member of the Team BAMF Forums, who consequently published the images on the forums. These latest photos of the HTC Vigor are not exactly studio-quality, but they’re the clearest ones that have surfaced lately. The photographer also took photos of the phone’s “Hardware Information” and “Software Information” screens.
Leaked pictures of the upcoming HTC Vigor
On the other hand, another person succeeded in hacking into a leaked RUU file purported to be that of the HTC Vigor and not just found details about the HTC Vigor specs but also extracted several video tutorials said to be from Verizon’s Guided Tours app for the HTC Vigor. HTC HDblog.it covered the story and also mentioned the presence of Beats Audio technology and Near Field Communication, as well as a new instant messaging application.
The sad thing about these leaked photos and videos is that they don’t give a clue about the price and the precise release date. However, where there’s smoke, there’s fire–and the smoke about the HTC Vigor has been getting thicker lately, so we figure that the conflagration is huge and imminent. Last info we heard, October 5 is the HTC Vigor’s expected release date.
Whether HTC or Verizon calls it the HTC Vigor, the HTC DROID Incredible HD, the HTC Thunderbolt 2, or the HTC Rezound–most people would hardly care, especially when looking at those specs. The question is–is the HTC Vigor your next Android superphone? If not, what is?
