Verizon and Samsung might not be sure what to call the thing — hell, they might not even be sure enough to give it the Galaxy S label — but that doesn’t mean they didn’t want to show it off. The so-labeled Samsung 4G LTE Smartphone might have been previewed a bit prematurely at CES this year, but it still holds a lot of promise. Featuring the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display that you might recognize from the Samsung Infuse 4G (that one rocks a 4.5-inch display) for AT&T and a 1GHz processor combine with 4G LTE from Verizon would make it one of the most powerful Galaxy S offerings on the planet. And it is pretty impressive.

The Super AMOLED Plus easily bests what can now be considered the boring old regular Super AMOLED, but as always the size of the screen might be off-putting to some. For the big-handed it might be just right, but we tend to enjoy phones in that 4.0-inch goldilocks zone of screen real estate. But that’s a matter of personal taste. We are definitely interested in seeing more of this handset (and hopefully finding out its name).
