The Incredible packs a couple of the Nexus One’s key specs, including a 3.5- to 3.7-inch AMOLED display and a Snapdragon processor. The style is quite different, however, with a flat black face and a layered back side (colored red, in these photos) that seems to mold around the phone’s internals. Like the Nexus One, it appears to lack a physical keyboard.
Things get more interesting if this is the same phone as HTC’s Bravo, revealed in a product roadmap last December. As Phandroid notes, HTC’s roadmap literature refers to the phone by both names. In that case, expect the Incredible to have a 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, an optical mouse pointer, an FM radio and a digital compass. It’ll also support 720p video capture and DivX video playback, and will have sound from Dolby.
The person who originally leaked specs and photos of the Bravo/Incredible and other 2010 HTC phones believes this could be HTC’s flagship model. Looking at other phones in HTC’s roadmap, this is clearly the most powerful and feature-rich, and it could certainly stand up to the Nexus One, running the same version of Android — albeit with a different interface — with a few hardware improvements.
The only question, then, is whether an HTC phone can outdo a Google-branded phone in popularity. If the Nexus One’s sales don’t pick up, the Incredible shouldn’t have too much trouble.
