If you thought Verizon Wireless was going to slow down on the high-end Android smartphones, you'd be wrong.

Based on recently leaked information, soon we should see an LG phone with 4G LTE connectivity and an HD display. Expected to be called the LG Spectrum, the smartphone should be the heir apparent to the Revolution which launched in mid-2011.

Rumored hardware details for the LG Spectrum match up quite nicely with the recently announced Optimus LTE and Nitro HD (AT&T). Specifications include a 1,280x720-pixel HD display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 8-megapixel camera and support for 4G LTE.

Assuming the whispers pan out, the VS920 smartphone will run Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and boast 1GB RAM and 4GB internal storage. Pocketnow has obtained what appear to be small versions of press-ready images so it would make sense that an announcement is due before too long, perhaps next month at CES.

I certainly don't envy Verizon customers looking to pick up a new high-end Android smartphone this winter. Between this, the Droid Razr, HTC Rezound , and the upcoming Droid 4 , there is more than enough to choose from.

Oh, there's also that Galaxy Nexus which is also due any day now. And who can forget that old classic, the Droid Bionic?

Which way would you go if you were able to choose just one?
