Rumblings of an LTE-capable Windows Phone are nothing new, as rumors of a Nokia-made model have been making the rounds since early last month. If you'd prefer your LTE Windows Phone to feature a bit more of an HTC or Samsung flavor, though, we've gotten wind of a couple of devices that you may want to keep an eye out for. According to a report out of The Verge, HTC is prepping a Windows Phone device codenamed "Radiant" that packs in LTE support and pre-Tango version of Microsoft's mobile operating system that packs in compatibility with that version of 4G connectivity.

Meanwhile, Samsung is said to be hard at work on an LTE Windows Phone that's codenamed "Mandel." The device reportedly features a screen larger than the one found on the 4.3-inch Focus S as well as the same pre-Tango OS found on the HTC Radiant.

So when might you be able to get your mitts on these two devices? An exact launch date isn't yet known, but it's rumored that they could both be coming sometime early next year. It's not really a surprise to hear that HTC and Samsung are prepping LTE-capable Windows Phones since it's not like Nokia was going to be the only manufacturer to release such a device, but hey, we're still excited to hear more about LTE Windows Phone devices that are on the horizon, and I bet that Verizon is, too. How many of you would consider an LTE-enabled Windows Phone as your next handset purchase?
