One apiece from Samsung, Motorola, and HTC

While it's no secret that Verizon will be unveiling a number of LTE-enabled devices at the CES 2011 conference this weekend, details of three devices have emerged via Brighthand.

First up is the Motorola Olympus/Etna/Thunderbolt. Reportedly running on NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chip, the Android-based device sports a 4.1-inch display, an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, a front-facing VGA camera, HDMI port, and Android 2.3 with Sense UI.

Then, we've got the HTC Droid Incredible HD/"Mecha". On the hardware front, it should be very similar to Sprint's HTC EVO 4G, with the addition of a rumored dual-core 1.2 MHz Qualcomm processor. The Incredible HD sports a 4.3-inch WXGA touchscreen with 1280 x 800 screen resolution. Like the Olympus, it, too, will sport an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and a front-facing VGA shooter for video chat.

Finally, Brighthand reports that we can expect the Samsung SCH-I520, a Froyo-equipped Android device with another 8-megapixel camera, to be outted at CES as well. Both, the Thunderbolt and the SCH-I520 have shown up in Verizon inventories.

er? Motorola is using HTC's UI? Did I miss something, maybe a partnership/licensing deal between the 2 handset makers?

They aren't. The Olympus/Eta is a difference device from the Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt is the HTC phone, and will most likely have Sense. The Motorola phone will likely have Blur, if I had to guess. Doesn't seem like Motorola bothers to read reviews about their products, any review of the Droid 2/Global, X, Pro, pans the Blur overlay. Pretty much the same thing with Samsung's TouchWiz too.
