Well, it was only a matter of time. With just about one week to go before Verizon officially unveils their big 4G handset, the odds of a leaked picture were just about certain. The guys at Droid Life have happened upon one dozen images of HTC‘s third 4G ‘first’ and it’s a beauty. It’s also pretty much everything we’d been expecting over the last five months.
Take a look at the mini gallery below and you’ll see more than passing resemblances to the EVO 4G. That’s just fine with us, though, as it’s one of our favorite phones from this past year. The Thunderbolt 4G looks like a slightly evolved version of the Sprint device, with a sexed up, smoother design.
It’s worth pointing out that the kickstand is considerably thicker this time around, working in both portrait or landscape mode. We can clearly see what appears to be some type of speaker on the back, below said kickstand. Oh, and that “With Google” makes us feel real warm and fuzzy. Should be nary a hint of Bing on the Thunderbolt 4G. That is, unless you want to download it yourself.
We’ll be in Las Vegas next week when Verizon drops this one on us and fills in the spec details. Anyone expecting a surprise out of this one still?
Be sure to head to Droid Life to see the other pictures!
