With all the hubbub surrounding the DROID RAZR, HTC Rezound and Galaxy Nexus on Verizon’s LTE network, QWERTY keyboard lovers are no doubt feeling a little left out. If the Samsung Stratosphere wasn’t your cup of tea, there’s good news: internal leaks show that the DROID 4 may be coming soon. The guys over at Droid-Life have got their hands on some new spy shots that show the DROID 4 is already being tested internally.

The DROID 4 will be the first of the original DROID line to have access to Verizon’s LTE network. Tapered styling that apes the recently-reviewed DROID RAZR makes it look sharp, and unfortunately early units are also sharing its non-removable battery. We still don’t know anything about the processor and RAM, but it does have a 4-inch screen running at a respectable qHD resolution.

The internal shots show that the DROID 4 began testing on November 6th. That would put the device in line for a launch this year, possibly as part of the “Motorola Portfolio” tentatively scheduled to start running after Thanksgiving. That would be a mighty fine time to start hyping up LTE versions of the XOOM 2 as well. We wait in hope for a QWERTY LTE DROID, Verizon – but we’d probably settle for an official Galaxy Nexus release date.
