A bunch of Samsung midrangers heading to US carriers: Galaxy Stratosphere 2, Admire 4G, and Victory 4G LTE
Galaxy Discover for TracFone. The ultra-budget prepaid carrier doesn't currently offer any branded smartphones, so the Galaxy Discover could end up being its first. It's slated to get Android 4.0, Bluetooth 3.0, "ample" internal storage, and external expansion up to 32GB. This one looks a bit like an original Galaxy S, too, but features three capacitive buttons along the bottom instead of the classic four.
Galaxy Stellar for Verizon. This is the phone that leaked last month as the "Jasper," a Droid Charge successor that keeps the original's unusual pointy chin. It's tapped to get a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 2,100mAh battery, Android 4.0, and — of course — LTE.
Galaxy Stratosphere 2 for Verizon. Samsung doesn't seem to have any intention of pushing QWERTY sliders globally, but American carriers are clearly still asking for them — and that's where the Stratosphere 2 comes into play. The follow-on to last year's Stratosphere, this new model features global GSM roaming capability, SAFE approval to make IT departments happy, S Beam, and S Voice.

it's a shame that there's not a Droid Charge 2. o:

I can understand adding a qwerty slide out keyboard device but with the galaxy s3 only 199, I can't understand why anyone would not get it. And don't go on about the screen size, I am not a giant, it fits nicely in my hands and it is easy to use. Women at my work also have it and they love it.
So unless this Galaxy Stellar is priced 49.99 or cheaper its pointless if you ask me.

They might buy these lower-end devices because they cannot afford the $199 for the GS3. Also, this might be a bit of a surprise, but the GS3 might not appeal to everyone.
