I'm sure it will. We all could have easily guessed that a variant of the One X would become the next EVO.

I'm not as worried about new phones as wanting a better network...4G?? LTE?? My Evo is fine by me until Sprint's network supports at least 4G in my area!!

I'm not buying anymore android phones with hardware buttons taking up valuable surface area on the face of the phone. with ics you can keep the large screen without adding to the overall size of the phone. also, that thing does not look sexy with the white bezel clawing over the edges.

on most phones/tablets where you can't pull the battery, if you just hold the power button down it will shut off. that's how it works on the nook color, and I've looped that thing a bunch of times.

I was super excited about the nexus, but now I might be waiting for the galaxy s3.

The S4 has which Adreno GPU built-in, 225 or 320? I'm extremely disappointed in the 220 provided w/ the current gen MSM8660 in the 3VO.

GPU is 225, here is a comparison between the Tegra 3 and Snapdragon S4.

I'm interested in seeing the reviews for the S4 devices, mainly in regards to battery life.

Likewise, but I think it's safe to assume that the S4-powered devices will have better batt life than our current gen stuff. Especially since the radios are built into the die.

I rather they take their time and get all the bugs out and even add enhancements that one up the competition.

The following GDoc shows on the second tab the months that Sprint usually releases the most phones. For the last 5 years it has been June and Oct, for the last 10 years its been Sept / Oct.

That's all phones. Not just smartphone and not just high-end. The Epic 4G was released in August, The Nexus S in May, The Shift in January. There are always exceptions. I am willing to bet the Galaxy Nexus will be out before June, I would even say before May.

Still love my ET4G, none of these newer phones have me pulling out my wallet. Besides, the S3 will blow them all away when its released. I am waiting for that. I am sure it won't be till around fall to go head to head with the new iPhone.

I'm guessing that the Galaxy Nexus is coming in April. Sprint might announce the next EVO at CTIA in May. And hopefully the GS3 will be a Summer release.

The galaxy s 2 looks good in white. I have the evo and I love it. But i'm considering on switching to the galaxy s2 or (hopefully) if sprint gets the Note I'll switch to that. I know it looks somewhat large, but I wouldn't mind it at all. and I wouldn't care what others think of me with my big ol' phone ahah.
I really do hope Sprint does get the Note, because if they do I just might have to buy it
Also I did hear that Sprint might be getting the Galaxy S III as well..but thats what I've been reading on other forums and such.

I doubt Sprint will see a G Note, but it's safe to assume that we'll see a variation of the GS3.

I think they'll have a weird variant of the One X. It will probably have some minor spec changes, but I think we will definitely see one at CTIA and it will be the next EVO.

Thanks for the post Ben. I figured the GN was dropping on April 15th. Now I'm wondering if it has a better processor and camera.

I know I might be the oddball, but I'm really looking for a high end LTE phone with Sprints PTT.

Even if you are the oddball, that would be a good addition.. PTT phones tend to be lower end/spec'd.. would be cool to see a shift in that trend. Maybe have like two models of a phone, same phone, but one with PTT and one without.. kinda like some of the sprint/nextel blackberries do cameras.. same phone, but one with the cam, one without.

Indeed. The only thing that kept me back from buying a brand new off-contract Admiral was it's essentially the same as I have now, minus 4G. Downgrade to upgrade. To be honest, if it was spec'd like the Droid Razr with only 3G, I'd have bought it.

Well since they did not announce it at MWC, and HTC said "AT&T exclusive" I traded my Evo to Verizon for $85 and got an LG Spectrum, basically the same specs as the One X, only it is an S3 processor...

Sprint should not have held back, with such a close release date, especially after HTC's announcement at the MWC.

It is nice with the dual core at 1.5Ghz, but I don't think I can handle another two years with an S3... I'll probably upgrade early. I don't see the need for quad core, unless Android finally virtualizes and I can dual boot a Linux distro. So I'll hope for a 1.7Ghz S4 or better. Should be possible for next year. I like the lower die size of 28nm

I sometimes run Ubuntu 9 on my Evo 3D (S3 processor) and it does just fine. Runs parallel to Android, simultaneously. I'll use vnc to put my Linux desktop on my laptop while running Android on the phone - or you can switch between the two on the phone.

And btw, Verizon had an exclusive on the Galaxy Nexus, so I think that the whole exclusive thing is misleading.

Not defending the camera, just frustrated. Either I see pictures made poorly or by what looks like an ad agency for this phone, so I still can't tell what to expect.

Appreciate the link in any case!

exclusive for what amount of time .. or is it just a name exclusive thing..

because of the android 4.0 with support of no separate navigation buttons..
i am hoping to wait for such a phone. with little bezel.. from htc..

and to hear more reviews of this One

ICS will support either soft or hard buttons but HTC and others are moving away from hard buttons - cheaper to produce, more to hype.

Or you want to trade screen area for bezel area, then.

That's popular but not for me.

I am in the same debate. But for me, I'm going to add the GS3. I want to see the internal memory of this new HTC phone. And I want to know if Sprint's version will have expandable memory and a removable battery cover. I really like Sense, but I need more memory on my phone. HTC just has not been good to Sprint in that department. So I'm going to wait, drool, and see what happens. This phone does look really good!

This is going to be fun. The GN coming next month and then the One X(EVO) on June. All I need to know are the specs for the GS3. These are the three choices for me when I upgrade.

The hard part is waiting for them to all come out. Normally I get the HTC phone that comes out in June, EVO 4G, EVO 3D, but not this time. I'm going to wait and see which one is worth it to me.
