LTE Windows Phones may be here soon in the form of the HTC Radiant and Samsung Mandel
The folks over at The Verge have a contact that has been able to shed some light on Microsoft’s future Windows Phone plans. Apparently both Samsung and HTC intend to release Windows Phones with LTE support. On the HTC side, all that is known is that it is codenamed ‘Radiant’ and was previously spotted running a post-Mango build, but The Verge’s source has said that both of these devices are slated to be running pre-Tango versions of Windows Phone.

Samsung’s device is codenamed ‘Mandel’ and will sport a screen that is larger than the 4.3-inch display currently on the Samsung Focus S. Both of these devices are expected to debut in early 2012 along with an LTE version of Nokia’s Lumia 800.

Since Verizon earlier proclaimed that Windows Phone needs LTE support to succeed on its network, we wouldn’t be surprised to see big red going after one of these devices. It is not expected that these devices will be revealed at this year’s CES, but some have pointed out that February’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona may be a great fit for an official announcement.
