HTC Droid Incredible X emerges with Verizon branding, could launch as the DLX

The elusive Droid Incredible X has been making the rounds over the past few months, and with the recent announcement of the HTC J Butterfly for Japan, it looks as though we could potentially be seeing a variant of the 5-inch smartphone make its way to the US. The long-rumored Droid Incredible X has been finally been spotted in the flesh, thanks to a set of leaked photos, ultimately revealing its suspected Verizon branding and red accents.

Interestingly, the device could make its American debut as the HTC DLX (pronounced “deluxe”) if the Taiwanese manufacturer has its way. This same DLX reference was also spotted in the bootloader menu of the J Butterfly, denoting the device as the Deluxe J. Regardless, the new Verizon-bound smartphone would mark HTC’s first attempt at a 5-inch device and also signify the newest major addition to the company’s One line since its introduction at Mobile World Congress in February.

As we had anticipated, the beast is sporting a full 1080p display, an 8-megapixel rear shooter, Android 4.1.1 with Sense 4+ and a powerful quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. The phone’s RAM is slated at 2GB alongside 16GB of internal storage, all fueled by a massive 2,500mAh battery.

There’s no word on pricing or availability, though we fully expect the Droid Incredible X to go on sale in time for the holidays.

    I applaud HTC with the making of this device it’s always great to see competition between the manufacturers. Unfortunately HTC has a long way to go in catching up to Samsung in this so called tablet space. Personally I feel this device would compare to the current Razr Maxx Hd, Htc One+, Razr Hd, Lg Optimus G, and Galaxy S3. It will NEVER COMPARE to the Galaxy Note 2 that in it’s self stands on a different entire level…
