Move over Motorola and Samsung. It’s HTC’s turn to send out invites to a mysterious press event, and we’re fully expecting to see the HTC Rezound (a.k.a. the Vigor) take the stage come November 3.

The Rezound, for those of you who have missed my near-obsessive coverage, is HTC’s next Verizon-bound LTE device. It’s slated to be the first stateside device to pack Beats audio technology, but it also confirms its geek cred with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 4.3? 720p display. Here’s hoping that the battery is up to snuff.

Though its specs put it firmly in Verizon’s top tier of devices, it’s a chubby little guy and the design may not win many fans. Still, it’s what’s on the inside that counts (or so I keep telling myself), so we’ll hold off on passing judgment until we get to play with it.

Nothing is set in stone yet, but there’s almost no way the Rezound won’t take center stage next week. The timing does seem awfully suspect — leaked Verizon documents have pointed to a spate of new releases on the 10th, with the Rezound being one of them. If the leaks hold true, then Verizon fans will have much to be thankful for next month.

We’ve seen some of the other big carriers prepping for a big November push, but between the iPhone 4S, the Droid RAZR, the Galaxy Nexus, and HTC’s Rezound, it looks like Verizon’s got the holiday lineup to beat.
