What Comes After the Samsung Galaxy S3?

Steven Blum

If you're feeling diappointed, or just plain apathetic, about the launch of the Galaxy S3, fear not! There are a number of devices planned for the near future that  look just as – if not more– tantalizing than Samsung's latest superphone. These smartphones, tablets and phablets might not all have big name manufacturers attached to them, but they've got us excited because of their great looks, fast processors and competitive prices. Without further ado, here's a smattering of devices that may give the Galaxy S3 a run for its money.. 

Motorola Droid RAZR HD

Specs:

  • 4.7 inch HD display
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • Slim profile
  • Same battery as RAZR MAXX

Why we're excited: Imagine a phone with the sleekness of the Droid RAZR but with the battery life of the Droid RAZR Maxx. The Droid RAZR HD is rumored to have the same 16 hour battery life as the Maxx, and also a whopping 13 megapixel shooter. This phone could give the Galaxy S3 a run for its money, especially among travelers and photo freaks.

 

Nexus Tablet

  • 7-inch display
  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Tegra 3 chip
  • 1280x800 resolution
  • $250 price tag.

Why we're excited: Google and ASUS are teaming up on this small but powerful tablet and the price suggests it will be a smash. There's speculation that the tablet has been delayed until July in order to ship with the next version of Android Jelly Bean – an absolutely delicious rumor.

ASUS Padfone

Specs:

  • 10.1 inch display
  • 1.5 GhHz processor
  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Phone docks in the tablet
  • Detachable keyboard
  • Stylus microphone

Why we're excited: We've been obsessed with the Padfone since it was first announced. It's the most versatile device we've ever seen. Unfortunately, it still hasn't been released in the U.S. We hope it'll be priced competitively when at launch, but rumors saying otherwise have us worried. 

ZTE PF112

Specs:

  • 4.5 inch display
  • 1028x720 resolution
  • 8 MP camera
  • Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Quad core likely

Why we're excited: Likely budget price + beautiful screen and high class hardware has ZTE shooting for the moon and landing among the pixelated stars.


Huawei Ascend D Quad

Specs:

  •  4.5 inch display
  • 1280x720 resolution
  • 1.5 GHz processor
  • 8 megapixel shooter

Why we're excited: Thin, light design plus a 1.5 Ghz processor should propel Huawei into the big leagues. This also happens to be marketed as the "world's fastest smartphone" although we'll have to do some testing before we can say anything conclusively.
