The HTC Droid Incredible 2 is coming Thursday to Verizon Wireless.

The Android 2.2 Froyo-based Droid Incredible 2 boasts a 4-inch LCD display and the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. In addition, it supports 3G Mobile Hotspot, allowing people to connect five Wi-Fi-enabled devices to the Web through the smartphone's 3G connection. The device has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. It also supports Flash.

Details on the HTC Droid Incredible 2 have been leaking for the past couple weeks. Earlier this month, Android Central obtained documents with information on the device's key features. That report was followed by a tip to CNET that the device would be launching on April 28. Both reports turned out to be spot-on.

The Droid Incredible 2 is a global smartphone. According to Verizon, owners can access voice and data service in over 200 countries. The device is also capable of accessing 3G data in 125 of those countries.

Verizon will be selling the Droid Incredible 2 for $199.99 with a two-year contract.
