Samsung Galaxy S3 arriving on Verizon, HTC getting a Galaxy Note competitor ready?

Big news for Verizon Wireless subscribers and fans - the US biggest wireless carrier has an awesome selection of upcoming Android handsets and it includes the one of the most anticipated handsets for the year, the Samsung Galaxy S3, according to BGR’s sources.
The Galaxy S III will arrive on Big Red, but it’s not yet clear exactly when. Chances are that it will be available “over the summer.” So far, we know that the S III will pack some amazing hardware including Samsung’s quad-core Exynos 4412 chip and possibly a Super AMOLED Plus RGB HD screen.
HTC is allegedly getting a Samsung Galaxy Note competitor ready. The device will have a huge 5-inch display, but it’s not just the size that’s mind-bogglind - it’s the resolution. The 5-inch screen will have a 1080x1920 pixels of resolution, and it will be an RGB display, not the sub-par PenTile one. If your head isn’t swirling yet wait until you hear about a quad-core Krait processor humming inside and the Adreno 320 GPU taking care of graphics. The upcoming HTC device will debut Sense 5.0 and there will be a Scribe pen.If that wasn’t enough, Verizon is said to have a very strong Android lineup in the fall.
Additionally, Verizon will have “multiple” Motorola RAZR models. One of them is likely to be the Motorola RAZR HD, or a model with a similar name, focusing around a screen with a better resolution than the original RAZR.
And don’t forget that Apple’s next-generation iPhone is also expected to arrive on US carriers this fall.
- Display 4.8" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.9 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 4 Quad, Quad-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(11.60h 3G talk time)

Lots of options appear to be in the works for VZW customers.... I am starting to become conflicted regarding which handset will replace my RAZR. I am pulling for the RAZR HD (or whatever it is ultimately called), but there appear to be good handsets in the offing from Sammy and HTC. Decisions, decisions....

I have sprint...and it kinda sucks...it used to be ok bc the prices were so low..but now its not worth it to be paying for a phone that doesnt even work...seriously considering VZW or AT&T if it doesnt improve by July...or if Sprint doesnt get a GS3!!

Based off of what information? CDMA/EVDO doesn't remotely have the same capabilities as GSM. So where do you get this "soon to have the fastest 3g" from? Yes they will be getting LTE, but it will be 2013 before that is up and running. By that time both ATT and VZW will have their networks covered in LTE. (VZW moreso than ATT.) So I really don't understand where this is coming from?

BGR's sources are Jonathan Gellar's wet dreams. His "sources" led him to "exclusively report" that the SGSIII would have a 1080p screen. Don't reprint what Gellar writes, because you'll look just as foolish as he does 50% of the time when his guesses are wrong.

The MSM8960 Pro is due out in Q2... as long as this thing keeps the form factor small-ish, kudos. 5 inch phones don't need .46" of bezel... doing some conversion there, that's almost 12mm of bezel. If they could cut that down to 5 or 6mm, they'd be golden.

WOW a 28nm S4 quad-core Krait with the Adreno 320 & a 5" RGB 1080p HD screen HOLY CRAP!!! I am patiently waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 but this new HTC device just made me go GAGA! At 28nm you can get up to 2.5GHz from the processor & the battery life will be stellar. If this does materialize I am so going for it. 28nm battery life savings & up to 2.5GHz quad-core & the new BEASTLY Adreno 320 all in a 5" "RGB" 1080p HD screen is just so mind boggling. That is everything I want in a smartphone plus, plus, plus it's all going to be on Verizon Wireless with the best 4G LTE coverage in the U.S. My heart is pumping! I am SO amped up! I want this RIGHT NOW! Man I sound like my 3 year old at Christmas! lol
