HTC Vigor Cased as HTC Rezound with Cases, Big Battery & Beats?

IHTC Rezound Casest looks like it is going to be raining dual-core smartphones soon at Verizon Wireless in time for the holidays.  The next round of HTC gift ideas surround the HTC Rezound (HTC Vigor) and are colorful hard cases that were shown before the HTC Rezound has even been announced.

The cases come in red, purple or black and show the usual HTC Sense homescreen.  Another accessory to appear is a 2750mAh extended life battery and expanded case, taken as  proof of a 4.3" touchscreen on the HTC Rezound.The HTC Rezound was previously suspected to be named the HTC Vigor and the successor to the HTC ThunderBolt with Dr. Dre Beat audio enhancements.  Previous leaked documents suggested a November 10 release date on the Verizon network.

Suspected specs of the HTC Rezound are:

  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
  • 4.3" 720p HD touchscreen.
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense.
  • 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front facing camera.
  • Verizon 4G LTE data access.
  • Wi-Fi.
  • Bluetooth.

Music lovers would really appreciate a set of Beats audio enhanced headphone like on the HTC Sensation XE.

The closest competitors will be the super thin Droid RAZR and  the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (aka Nexus Prime) both with 1.2 GHz dual-core processors and expected to launch in November.
