One of the best things about the number one carrier here in the US, Verizon Wireless, is that its never short of smartphone choices. And in 2012, things are not going to change. If you will be eligible for an upgrade sometime this year, here are 4 of the biggest rumored upcoming Verizon phones you should keep an eye out for.
Upcoming Verizon Phones 2012: Samsung GalaxyS3, iPhone 5, Motorola DROID RAZR HD…
Verizon iPhone 5: Just like every other iPhone model before it, Apple’s tight security protocols make it almost impossible to find out about their upcoming products until they are ready. The iPhone 5 is expected to be no exception however we can confirm 4G LTE radios thanks to the New iPad ‘3’ jumping on the fast speed bandwagon earlier this year. Other rumors hint a bigger screen and liquid metal case. The iPhone 5 release may be as early as next month (at WWDC 2012) or in the fall just like the iPhone 4S did last year.
Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3: Likely the biggest rival to the Verizon iPhone 5 in terms of sales, the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 is rumored to pack a dual-core processor instead of the Exynos quad-core in order to make it compatible with LTE. Other things we can count on are its 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, wireless charging, 8MP camera and TouchWiz UI tweaks. Rumors peg it for a summer launch.
Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note / Journal: Talks of a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note continue to build steam after a leaked image of a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note hinted the end of AT&T’s exclusivity on the huge ‘phablet’. No release date has been hinted so far.
Motorola DROID RAZR HD: The DROID RAZR HD deserves to sit up there with the Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5. If rumors hold true, it will give both other smartphones a run for their money. Rumored specs suggest a 3,300mAh battery, 4.6-4.7″ HD display, 13-megapixel rear camera and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
