For most of 2013 Verizon has been pretty quiet on the new phones they’ve launched. But that all looks to change very soon. If you’re on Verizon and have an upgrade coming up sometime over the next couple of weeks or months these are some of the best phones either already at Verizon or rumored to be coming to Verizon very soon. The last thing you want is to go out and buy something only to really regret it a week later.
While not everything here is confirmed to be coming to Verizon (some are just our best guesses based on rumors we’ve been hearing), here are five phones you should be excited for if you have an upgrade coming up.
If you’re looking for a new Android phone or have an upgrade coming up odds are you’ve narrowed your choices down to either the Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One. Both are very impressive phones with amazing 1080p HD screens, super fast quad-core processors, powerful cameras and interesting software features like the ability to become a remote for your TV. And best of all– both phones either are, or will be, available very soon.
We know that there’s a lot of interest in both of these beasts, so here’s a quick roundup on when they will be available at your carrier and how much it will cost you to get one.
As was expected, Facebook last week unveiled some of their new plans for Android including a new Facebook phone called the HTC First and more importantly, a major update to their Android app called Facebook Home.
Both the First and Facebook Home will be available later this week– on Friday, April 12th– but here is what you are going to need to know about both before they get here.
The new Facebook Phone, the HTC First
Later today, Facebook will be holding a big event to showcase their “new home on Android.” While there has been a lot of speculation about what exactly Facebook will show off, thanks to some recent rumors it looks like we now have a pretty good idea. Yes, Facebook isn’t just announcing an update to their Facebook Android app, they also are expected to announce the Facebook phone to go along with it.
Before the event gets underway at 10 AM Pacific Time, here are some of the latest rumors on what we expect Facebook to show off.
Late last week Facebook sent out invitations for an event at their headquarters teasing a “new home on Android.” As expected the internet is now filled with rumors about a new Facebook phone. While we still have a few days until the April 4th event, here are some of the latest and most interesting rumors about the Facebook phone and what else they might announce.
So AT&T users– you’ve got an upgrade coming up sometime over the next couple of months and while you like some of the phones already out there, you really wanna know what AT&T has got planned during the next few weeks or months so you don’t go out and buy something now only to really regret it a week later. We’re here to help. With all the excitement around new phones like the BlackBerry Z10, Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One we figure now was a good time to wrap everything up.
So without further ado, here are 5 of the best new phones that either available now at AT&T or are coming soon. If you’re on AT&T and have an upgrade coming up this Spring these are some of the phones you’re going to want to take a look at.
Yesterday in New York HTC took the wraps off of their latest and greatest phone, the HTC One. As you can see in the pic above this is one heck of a phone that not just looks great but has some really interesting features too.
The One will be available in March on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, but before that time comes let’s get to what’s new here and why it matters to you.
As expected, Verizon and HTC this announced their latest and greatest superphone, the Droid DNA. There were a lot of crazy rumors about this phone over the last few weeks, and well, it looks to live up to all of them.
At a size that is just slightly larger than the Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC and Verizon have seem to have packed in here everything you could want in a 2012 top of the line smartphone: a quad-core 1.5 GHZ processor with 2 GB of RAM (so everything runs fast and smooth on here), Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with the latest version of HTC Sense, an 8 megapixel back camera with a second 2.1 megapixel front camera for HD video chats, 16 GB of built-in storage (though unfortunately no microSD card slot for adding more), support for NFC (so you can do things like share pictures just by tapping phones) and wireless charging, built-in Beats Audio (with some updates so that your music will sound better even when playing at the maximum volume), and support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The greatest part about this phone however is the screen.
The Droid DNA packs an unbelievable 5 inch Full HD 1080p screen. As strongly rumored as this was, that it’s actually here is pretty insane. Basically, this has the same amount of pixels as the average 40-50 inch HDTV, but in this much smaller design. This means that anything and everything– games, pictures, books, Facebook updates, Tweets, text messages– will look absolutely amazing on here.
The Droid DNA will cost $200 when arrives in Verizon stores next Wednesday, November 21st. If you really can’t wait to make this your next phone, you can pre-order it now from Verizon’s site which as of this writing has a promised ship date of Monday, November 19th.
More info: HTC
Over the last few weeks there have been a lot of rumors about another new Droid ready to join Verizon’s lineup, the Droid DNA by HTC. And like the most recent new Droids, the Motorola RAZR MAXX and RAZR MAXX HD, this guy looks to be an absolute beast.
Now all we know is that this guy will be called the Droid DNA, and this comes thanks to some promoted tweets from Verizon Wireless’ official Twitter account teasing a big announcement set for this Tuesday. These Verizon tweets also lead to a Droid Does site that yesterday mentioned “unboxing the new Droid DNA” (they have since changed it to just “unboxing the new Droid”).
Of course, what the rumors say about this phone line up perfectly with one other Verizon teaser tweet that this new Droid will “better, stronger, faster.” How much “bigger, stronger and faster?” Well the latest rumors say this beast will have an insane 5 inch full 1080p HD screen (think of this like a bigger, even better version of the iPhone 5′s Retina Display. Basically, this will make anything and everything you do look ridiculous), a 1.5 GHZ quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM (for speed), 8 megapixel back camera with a 2 megapixel camera on the front for HD video chat, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and of course, built-in Beats Audio and 4G LTE. This looks to be going right up against the Galaxy Note 2 for the title of best super-sized Android phone on Verizon.
No word on a price or release date (rumors are that it will be out before Thanksgiving possibly for $200 on a new 2 year contract), but we’ll hopefully know all that very soon.
In a time where we see more and more phones launch with screens of 4.5 inches or more, it’s nice to see a phone that’s not as huge but still just as powerful. Verizon get this and today they announced the next generation of their Droid Incredible line, a phone we’re happy to say that it is exactly that.
Like the earlier Droid Incredibles– the original Droid Incredible and the Droid Incredible 2– the Droid Incredible 4G LTE is a powerful phone in a very nice, thin design. If you want a fast 4G LTE phone on Verizon that doesn’t need you to have huge hands or pockets we think this is the phone for you. Specs wise it’s just as impressive as those earlier Droid Incredibles and is exactly what you’d expect from a top of the line phone today. It’s got a 4 inch qHD screen (while not as clear as the as a lot of those 720p screens you see on big phones like the HTC One X, it still should make everything you view on it– from videos to pictures to apps– look pretty amazing), a 1.2 GHZ dual core processor with 1 GB of RAM (so everything runs smoothly), an 8 megapixel back camera with a front camera for video chat (with HTC’s Video Pic software so you can take pictures while you’re recording video), built-in Beats Audio support (so all your music and videos sound great), Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and of course, it runs on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
No word yet on when this bad boy will be available to order (or how much it will), but if it comes in below $100 with a 2 year contract it could be a great choice for anyone with an upgrade. Verizon said we should expect the Droid Incredible 4G LTE to arrive in the “coming weeks.”
