HTC DROID Incredible 2 is the GSM version of the DROID Incredible; it features a dual CDMA and GSM radio chipset which allows this handset to operate on Verizon’s CDMA network plus the GSM networks in over 200 countries. Aside from that it features some important hardware and software upgrades compare to its predecessor.
DROID Incredible weighted 5 grams heavier than the previous version because its screen grows from 3.7 inches to 4.0 inches and uses the new S-LCD display (480 x 800 pixels). Users can enjoy more viewing experience with the wider screen plus the SRS WOWHD surround sound DROID Incredible 2 can produce.
It now runs on Android 2.2 Froyo platform (upgradeable to v2.3.4) with the second generation Qualcomm MSM8655 Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz. It loses its 8GB internal storage but gains 1.1GB of ROM and 768MB RAM. Aside from the 8MP rear-facing camera, DROID Incredible 2 now has a 1.3MP front facing camera for video chat.
It is still equipped with the HTC Sense experience that offers users advanced personalization options, combined email capability and unique camera effects and filters. It now has 3G Mobile Hotspot capability that can connect up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices and DLNA cross-connectivity on compatible devices.
