Two new upcoming HTC smartphones have surfaced today, one getting itself certified in Taiwan, the other showing up in some benchmark results. Verizon Wireless is the last major US mobile carrier to start selling the Samsung Galaxy S4. Although its official launch day is May 23, those who’ve pre-ordered Verizon’s S4 last week (or earlier) are starting to receive it as of today – according to Droid life. Sprint is apparently getting ready to add two new smartphones from LG to its roster. The first one is the LG Optimus F3, the lowest-end in the Korean company’s new F-series, which is supposed to be all about bringing LTE to the masses in a few affordable packages. Sprint has announced that its subsidiaries Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile would launch the Samsung Galaxy S III starting June. While it’s very likely that neither of Samsung’s two Galaxy Mega phablets will be launched before the end of this month (May), we now know how much the Mega 6. Sony’s brand new Xperia ZR Android smartphone should be available starting the end of June – although not all countries will get it. Although it’s been rumored for many months now, T-Mobile’s upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III with LTE support still isn’t on sale. Proudly announced by Nokia last week, the new Lumia 928 Windows Phone 8 handset only has 16 GB of internal memory. The Acer Iconia W3 is definitely real. The tablet was first leaked a couple of weeks ago, and now it’s been confirmed by none other than Acer itself. The rumored Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is a real device, and several live photos of it have appeared on the Web to prove that.
