Images of upcoming HTC Vigor smartphone show up online
Just like how Darth Vader would say how the circle is now complete, it seems that the couple of years worth of speculation about the elusive HTC Vigor smartphone might now be close to an end, and for good reason. Apparently, leaked images of what appears to be the mysterious Vigor has finally showed up online, and from the looks of it, it appears that HTC might be intending to target consumers with a bold sense of fashion with the smartphone.
While HTC might not be be very good in keeping details of their upcoming smartphones under wraps for long, it sure managed to do so with its elusive HTC Vigor smartphone, which first surfaced as rumours from as far back as two years ago. Ever since then, interest in the smartphone has surged and waned, in part due to the rumour mill's failure to churn out a single picture that could prove its existence to the world. However, it seems that today is the day HTC fans from all over the world will get a chance to say hello to this mysterious smartphone, for images of what is allegedly the HTC Vigor have surfaced online in all of its glory.
According to a report published by Droid Life, the website which was responsible for getting its hands on what it claims is the HTC Vigor itself, the smartphone bears certain design elements similar to that of the older Incredible smartphone. However, its capabilities are probably the key attraction of the Vigor, for Droid Life is claiming that the smartphone features a dual-core processor which is clocked at 1.5GHz, along with 1GB of memory and 16GB of internal flash storage.
More importantly, Droid Life is also claiming that the Vigor, which sports a 4.3-inch HD screen, will be preloaded with the Beats by Dr. Dre audio enhancement technology, and that this feature will probably be software-based. This lends some credence to an earlier report about what was allegedly leaked benchmark results of the HTC Vigor, which claims that the smartphone sports a 720p screen and a Qualcomm Adreno 220 GPU. Oh, and it will reportedly come with built-in modems for 4G LTE data connectivity. Sweet.
