A Reddit user was recently able to spend some time testing out the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE thanks to an unnamed HTC representative.  The Incredible 4G LTE is going to be the next HTC flagship Android device on Verizon.  It has been rumored for quite some time now and nearly every aspect of the device is known.  Today, however, we have near confirmation that it will launch with NFC as the phone was able to perform the Beam function touted in Android 4.0 with NFC.

Several days ago, the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE was spotted momentarily on the DroidDoes page, implying a release in the coming weeks.  At this point, we expect it to launch in early to mid May for $199 on a two year contract.

Unfortunately, for some, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE is probably not going to launch under the same One series as the One X and One S on AT&T and T-Mobile, respectively.  The rumored specs on the Incredible 4G LTE include a 4 inch qHD touch screen display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0, Sense 4.0, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear facing camera, VGA front facing camera, NFC capability, and 4G LTE capability.

The HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE sounds like a solid smartphone option on Big Red, but it lacks the appeal of the larger screen and powerful processor found in the One X and One S.
