HTC rather quietly unveiled the HTC Velocity 4G for Australia's carrier Telstra who recently launched their LTE network. The phone is a version of the Raider 4G and AT&T's Vivid.

It has a 4.5" S-LCD classy screen with qHD resolution (540 x 960), a Snapdragon chipset with a dual-core 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) processor (the Raider and Vivid are clocked at 1.2GHz), 1GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) and Adreno 220 graphics.

The HTC Velocity 4G also brings an 8MP capturing camera with 1080p video recording to the table and 16GB of built-in storage (expandable with microSD cards). There's also Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) connectivity, including hotspot mode, which shares the phone's data connection over Wi-Fi.

Speaking of which, the Velocity 4G has regular quad-band 2G connectivity, dual-band 3G and the key feature - LTE support. It's for the 1800Mega Hertz (MHz) band that Telstra uses and while there's no official spec on the speed, Telstra's network goes up to 100Mbps.

The HTC Velocity 4G might become the first LTE-enabled smartphone in Australia, but we don't have any launch date and price info. Local newspaper Queanbeyan Age reports the phone will be launching later this month, but there's no official press release from HTC or Telstra.
