The Global Certification Forum has already approved a new smartphone from HTC that has yet to be formally announced, the HTC Velocity 4G. Details from the GCF show the Velocity 4G supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE for voice, and UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz and LTE at 800/2500 MHz for data. Sources say the smartphone will will have a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU and a five inch screen with 960x540 (qHD) resolution. It will also have an 8-megapixel HD camera, ship with Android 2.3, and have 16 GB inbuilt flash memory and be expandable, according to sources.

Rumors at this year's CES point to a debut with Australia's Telstra network. The supported LTE bands are also used in Europe and Latin America, but not North America. [via the::unwired]
