HTC Lexikon = Newest VZW Droid?

| September 20, 2010 | Reply

A new render of what the HTC Lexikon might look like also suggests that not only is it going to Verizon Wireless, but it may also be the newest addition to the Droid Family.  This device is said to be running Android 2.2 and have a 3.8″ screen, 512 MB of RAM, with a 5MP camera, and 800 MHz processor so it makes sense to us based on previous predictions and certain recent FCC filings.  Check out the leaked render, and story below and let us know what you think.  Personally I will be more impressed if and when Verizon Wireless introduces their version of the EVO, although this device does look very attractive.

When we first heard of the HTC Lexikon all we had to go off of was the name, but now a render of the device is suggesting not only will it go to Verizon but it looks to feature the Droid branding judging by some well-placed red accents. The specs match up well with the recent Verizon/HTC slider that passed through the FCC, though the front of the device does differ slightly. We’ll chalk that up to changes made along the path to a final design, but the stars line up too perfectly for these two phones to be separate devices.

The device features a 3.8-inch screen at WVGA resolution, 512MB RAM, and an 800MHz processor (no doubt the same featured in the new T-Mobile G2/Desire Z). Android 2.2 is on board and we will assume the new version of HTC Sense as well. A leaked RUU file of the device’s Froyo ROM is available so all should become clear about the Lexikon’s software shortly.

It’s like the Droid Incredible and the Droid 2 had a baby, and it came out looking like a more bad-ass Desire Z. I think I’d take that any day. How about you? But let’s not forget about this supposed Verizon bad boy too…
