CES is all over, and it’s been an amazing week for both Verizon and Samsung. Samsung announced their new Samsung 4G LTE Smartphone (official name, for now), and we got to give the device the hands-on treatment!

The phone was incredibly fast, it was one of the most powerful smartphones on the showroom floor, and it definitely was optimized well for both it’s operating system and internal hardware.

Shipping with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and Froyo 2.2, we can expect the device to be one of the leaders of early 2011, and on into the third and fourth quarters if it receives the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update.

Still officially unnamed, the 4G LTE Smartphone will hit Verizon the first half of this year. Be sure to check out our hands-on video with the unit below.
