While many of the devices on the list have rumored or leaked release dates already, BGR claimed to have Verizon’s summer/fall roadmap that details flagship smartphones being launched later this year.
According to the report, Verizon Wireless will offer Samsung’s highly anticipated and much rumored Galaxy S3, which the company confirmed yesterday will pack its new 1.4GHz Exynos 4 quad-core processor. The report does not give a release date, but it speculated a summer release based on the roadmap.
Also apparently on the roadmap are multiple Motorola RAZR devices and a new 5-inch HTC device that appears to be a Galaxy Note competitor…
The report does not offer many specifics, but it said we would probably see a “Motorola RAZR HD (or a name like that) with a larger and clearer display.”
HTC will also appear in Verizon’s fall lineup with “a major flagship device.” It will feature a 5-inch 1080p display, new quad-core Krait CPU, Adreno 320 GPU, a Scribe pen, and HTC Sense 5 on top. By all accounts, it would seem HTC is readying a device to compete directly with Samsung’s Galaxy Note. However, its fall release would also make it a direct competitor to the next-generation iPhone, which is also coming to Verizon this fall, according to BGR and the roadmap.
