HTC’s new DROID Incredible 4G LTE smartphone has finally received a confirmed release date. After Verizon and HTC announced it back in May and stated it was “coming within the next few weeks,” it will finally be available to Verizon customers on July 5th for just $149.

We all should know plenty about HTC’s latest DROID by now, but if not this is essentially an HTC One S but for Verizon and with a slightly smaller screen. It does have a few minor differences but for the most part is a pretty nice mid-range phone. The Incredible 4G LTE comes with a 4-inch display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Sense UI 4.0, Beats Audio integration, a rear 8 megapixel shooter followed by a 2 megapixel front camera, and a micro-SD slot.

Today Verizon and HTC have officially confirmed the rumored release date of July 5th, and it will be hitting shelves at $199 with a $50 mail in rebate. Users will end up paying $149 but it’s a shame they are requiring the MIR. It’s a great mid-range offering, and almost like a mini HTC Rezound. We should be getting our hands on it momentarily so stay tuned for more details.
