And there's a PICTURE!

Well, HTC, Motorola and maybe even Apple all have LTE plans for CES 2011. Why not Samsung too? They're the golden boys of the Android platform right now, with the top-selling smartphone and tablet. You didn't expect them to be behind the curve on LTE, did you?

Gizmodo has received a leaked photo of some new Samsung phone running on Verizon's 4G network. It has Android Froyo and the TouchWiz UI. There's also a front-facing camera. There does not appear to be a Bing deal on this device.

So now the big question is, what sort of hardware can we expect? Motorola's 4G option is expected to pack a dual-core Tegra II processor. Samsung may eschew power for battery life though. In which case this new phone is likely to bear a striking resemblance to the Nexus S, maybe right down to the contoured display.

Verizon already has plans to focus their CES 2011 keynote on LTE. And the carrier has confirmed they will be showing off Android LTE devices at CES 2011.

If Big Red doesn't put a Samsung device on the table during their keynote, we'll all be surprised. Samsung is the manufacturer that built what might be the first legitimate, head-to-head iPhone competitor. They have a steering interest in Android and the consumer cachet to move a ton of LTE-phones. New technology always sells better when paired with a trusted name.
