HTC Mecha seems a pretty good name for an Android smartphone – there’s plenty of mech-warrior scope for eye-catching adverts, at least – so it’s a shame Verizon will likely be calling this latest leaked device the DROID Incredible HD. Android Central scored an image of the HTC Mecha with Verizon branding and showing what looks to be a 4G logo on-screen; that would certainly suggest that it’s among the handful of devices the carrier has promised will launch for its fledgling LTE 4G network.
HTC Sense and what looks to be an EVO 4G-scale 4.3-inch display appear to be the order of the day, and early test report leaks are tipping 9Mbps downlink and 5Mbps uplink rates. Verizon’s LTE service is due to go live by the end of the year, but we’re not expecting the DROID Incredible HD until early in 2011.
