DroidLife's got a handful of shots of a 4.3" LTE-ready smartphone from HTC, apparently dubbed the Thunderbolt, and from the look of things it's gonna be Verizon's answer to the Evo 4G.

From DroidLife's slew of photosā€”including the one below with the phone proudly bearing a Thunderbolt graphicā€”it certainly seems like this will show up in the first wave of LTE handsets from Verizon.

Between its 4.3" display (suggested in earlier leaks), its proudly-sported kickstand, and its all-around Evoeque look, it seems like Verizon's (kinda unimaginative) answer to Sprint's flagship Android phone. I expect it'll see plenty of shine next week at CES. [DroidLife via Engadget]
