The HTC Rezound, which was a follow-up to the HTC Thunderbolt, has received a pretty decent price-cut from Big Red today. Going from $299 all the way down to $49, it really looks as if Verizon is trying to move some Rezound units out of their inventory pretty quickly. The Rezound is a 4G LTE device with a dual-core processor and a 4.3 inch 720p HD display, so we would definitely consider this device a high-end smartphone. Not to mention the fact that it was the first HTC device to launch with Beats by Dre integration, and it even comes with a nice pair of Beats to bring the experience to the user by way of earphones.
With this price-cut comes a great deal, but also an opportunity for speculation. If Verizon is trying to move Rezound units, this could very well mean they are making room for a new HTC smartphone to make its way onto the network. We’ve seen and heard reports of an “Incredible 4G” (thanks to Droid Life), and after some pictures and benchmarks this may be a real possibility. Of course, it would make sense for Verizon to finally bring a 4G successor to its ever-popular DROID Incredible, and also the DROID Incredible 2 which was not a 4G device even after the launch of the network. This may all just be speculation, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a 4G HTC variant heading to Verizon in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you’re looking for a fantastic 4G Android device on Verizon be sure to stop by their page for a pretty great deal, but hurry, because the offer ends a week from today.
