Incredible 4G Gets Benchmarked, Reveals 1.2GHz Processor and qHD Display

Incredible 4G NenaMark2The Droid Incredible 4G, also known as HTC Fireball, has been put through the NenaMark2 ringer, and the test results are a little… underwhelming. The device has been making unofficial appearances on the Interwebs for quite sometime and, according to the test, it looks like it’ll be nothing more than another mid-range Android device. The NenaMark2 benchmarks seem to confirm the device will come equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Not bad, and certainly powerful enough, but what’s curious is that the Adreno 225 – which is the same CPU seen in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 chipset – is only clocked at 1.2GHz. Most Snapdragon S4 chips get a minimum clock of 1.5GHz, so it’s strange to see the Incredible 4G’s processor clocked lower. In addition, the NenaMark2 results show a qHD display – a far cry from the 720p HD screens we’ve seen hit the market, including on HTC’s own Rezound. Droid-Life speculates, “We are wondering now if Verizon is simply trying to keep the cost down on this device and then potentially make it their first official “global ready” 4G phone.” You can bet we’ll be prowling for more Incredible 4G information before it hits on the rumored April 26 date.
