LG Thrill 4G HTC Status BlackBerry Torch 4G AT&T

In the market for a new AT&T smartphone? If the above leaked screenshot is to be believed, you'll be getting a few new devices to choose from over the next month or so. As you can see above, the image claims that the 3D-enabled LG Thrill 4G and the HTC Status will both be landing sometime this month. If BlackBerry is more your thing, the Torch 4G, aka Torch 2, may be launching in August.

AT&T has already made both the Thrill 4G and Status official, but a concrete launch date for either device has still been hard to come by. Still, a July launch window is certainly better than the "summer" time frame that AT&T's already served up for both handsets. As for the Torch 4G, we've heard in the past that it could be arriving in July, but an extra month wait isn't too big of a deal. Oh, and that 4G tacked onto the new Torch's name? It's likely only an indicator of AT&T "4G" connectivity, not LTE, as previous leaks have pegged the Torch 2 as only being capable of 14.4Mbps HSPA speeds.
