PhoneArena has published pictures showing an unknown HTC LTE handset running Ice Cream Sandwich, and evidence suggests this one might be heading to Verizon. According to the hardware screen, it's got a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a front-facing VGA one. Curiously enough for an Android 4.0 phone, it's got four buttons instead of the standard three, indicating that we might be looking at an early prototype. It's also possible that the phone will launch on Gingerbread, with an Ice Cream Sandwich update coming later.

So what could it be? The front of the phone doesn't tell us much, but the back, as PhoneArena notes, is raised in a way that's reminiscent of the Droid Incredible 2, but with slightly different flash placement. It's also similar to the back of the Rezound, albeit with more definition around the edges. We don't see any carrier branding on the hardware, but a boot screen shows Verizon's LTE logo, making it possible that this is a successor to either the Incredible 2 or the Rezound. Given that the Rezound already has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and HD front-facing camera, though, the Incredible 2 is looking more likely. Either way, we're not seeing any major surprises here, but it looks like one HTC phone might be getting at least a little bit of a redesign.
