The Samsung Galaxy S3 was announced only a couple of days ago but since then we’ve seen its official specs pitted against the best smartphones on the market right now e.g. Samsung Galaxy Note, HTC One X, iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
While the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been made official, there is still no firm release date and it may still be anywhere from a few weeks to months away. And by then, we can expect newer smartphones to be announced and take the spotlight away from the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Verizon Wireless for one has been rumored to be getting some popular new additions to its lineup which will give the Galaxy S3 a run for its money when and if its lands on Big Red. We’re talking about the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy Note and Motorola DROID RAZR HD.
Upcoming Verizon phones (rumors): iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy Note, Motorola DROID RAZR HD
Motorola DROID RAZR HD: Rumored to basically be a DROID RAZR MAXX with a larger HD display, ICS keys and 13MP camera, it can certainly give the Samsung Galaxy S3 a run for its money. Speculate release date is sometime this summer.
iPhone 5: The next-generation Apple phone, it is expected to bring a host of upgrades including a larger display (finally), 4G LTE, faster processor, 12-megapixel camera, wireless charging and launch with iOS 6 in tow.
Samsung Galaxy Note: Similar to the current AT&T model but with CDMA and Verizon LTE support, the Samsung Galaxy Note may sound outdated but it still manages to hold its own thanks to being the only smartphone on the market with a screen that massive and S-Pen support. Proving critics wrong since its release by selling over 5 million units in less than 5 months, it is expected to be a major hit on Verizon when it hopefully launches under the name Galaxy Journal.
