Want to get an early look at HTC’s other new 4G LTE phone coming this holiday season? YouTuber worldofjohnboy just uploaded a nearly five minute unboxing of a pre-production model HTC Rezound, which we had previously referred to as the HTC Vigor.

Nothing new is revealed in the video, but the previously leaked specs have once again been confirmed. Highlights of the Rezound include a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (likely Snapdragon S3), 4.3 inch 720p HD screen, 1GB of RAM, Sense 3.5, Beats Audio, and support for Verizon’s 4G LTE.

HTC is expected to unveil the Rezound at a New York event on November 3rd and we expect the device will land in Verizon stores on November 10th for $299 with 2-year contract. That is also the day that the Droid RAZR should be available and the Galaxy Nexus is rumored to launch around that timeframe, so Verizon customers will have plenty of high-end Android phones to chose from.

Check out the hands-on video of HTC’s latest and let us know what you think. Does the Rezound have enough appeal to choose it over the Droid RAZR or Galaxy Nexus?
