Verizon has officially confirmed that it will launch another follow-up to its popular Droid Incredible developed by HTC. This time around, the device will offer 4G LTE compatibility, hence the name Droid Incredible 4G LTE.

The Droid Incredible 4G LTE was announced today at the CTIA 2012 conference. The phone is running HTC Sense 4.0, which is HTC’s customization of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It also has Beats Audio for an integrated audio equalizer that optimizes sound quality. HTC promises that users will notice a difference in superior sound whether watching YouTube, playing a game, or streaming music.

On the hardware side, the Incredible has a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. The screen size is “only” 4 inches, but that’s a good change of pace from the boundary pushing that HTC and other companies have been doing in recent years. Less enthusing is that the 4-inch screen has a super LCD qHD display. The body of the device also has that elevated rear that has become a staple of the Droid Incredible design history.

Verizon has yet to share pricing or availability details, saying only that the Droid Incredible 4G LTE will go on sale “in the coming weeks.” Count on more news to emerge soon. Here’s a look at a few key specs:

  • 4-inch super LCD qHD display
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus, LED flash, BSI, f/2.2 and 28 mm lens
  • Front-facing camera for video chatting with friends and family
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 processor
  • Mobile Hotspot capable to share 4G LTE connection with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices
  • Support for up to 32 GB microSD™ memory card
  • 1,700 mAh lithium ion removable battery
