HTC Vigor HD Screen & LG Revolution 2 Same: Potential Specs

Although most of the smartphone excitement lately has revolved around the Samsung Galaxy S II and Motorola Droid Bionic we recently posted an article about a leaked Verizon roadmap listing two promising new devices. We now have further news on those handsets, the HTC Vigor and the LG Revolution 2, with some potential specs for each and the probability of HD screens on both will have some people drooling.

The news comes to us from Kellex over on Droid-Life from sources who have provided the site with what look like very impressive specs. There’s been a lot of talk about the HTC Vigor since it first leaked and likely specs include a 4.3-inch 720p HD screen and a whopping 1.5GHz dual-core processor, as on the bumped up Galaxy S II, the Celox, which could potentially come to the US. Other specs for the Vigor include 1GB RAM along with 16GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facer. It’s likely to run on Android 2.3.4 and a new Sense interface, 3.5. Dimensions-wise it will resemble the HTC Thunderbolt but won’t have a kickstand.

The LG Revolution 2 is also rumored to have an HD display, this time 4.5-inches in size and is thought to be a 4G LTE handset for Verizon. It’s particularly interesting that it’s said to be an ultra slim device although in an article yesterday we referred to the fact that the thickness of the Motorola Droid Bionic from leaked images, was because of the increased battery necessary to give a decent performance for a 4G LTE phone. It was also suggested that this would be why the Apple iPhone 5 might not be an LTE handset as Apple wouldn’t want to compromise its styling. If the Revolution 2 then really is a slim device, LG may have either come up with a way to have a decent battery and LTE support in a slim design or the other alternative may be that battery life may be poor.

Another point that Droid-Life makes refers to the Verizon variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II, previously referred to as the Function, and then more recently, the Stratosphere. It now seems that the Stratosphere is not likely to be the Galaxy S II Verizon model, but instead a slider smartphone. As usual with these type of rumors the specs above cannot be verified yet but we shall certainly follow developments for the Vigor and Revolution 2 and let you know more as we find out. Would you be interested in the HTC Vigor or LG Revolution 2? Let us know with your comments.

    So, if the Samsung Stratosphere isn’t the Galaxy S II, what is? There was no other Samsung device on the leaked Verizon roadmap until January, and there’s no way Samsung’s gonna get me to wait that long to buy that phone unless it’s something twice as amazing as the Bionic, Vigor or the Revolution 2 (or the Bionic, Vigor, and Revolution 2 all turn out to be worse than the original Euro S II, which is possible, I suppose).
