  • Samsung Exhilarate

Samsung Exhilarate is built with the environment in mind. Constructed from 80 percent recycled, post-consumer materials, the device successfully meets a number of sustainability standards. That is why it has been given a Platinum certification by UL Environment – a group of folks that determine how “green” a certain product is. At the same time, the Samsung Exhilarate should deliver a decent Android experience, and, while we are not expecting to see any spectacular hardware under its hood, its front is occupied by a 4-inch Super AMOLED display. Both a front-facing and a rear camera are on board, along with an LTE radio for speedy access to the Internet.

  • Sony Xperia Ion

Sony Xperia ion is the first phone that is just Sony (no Ericsson here), which was expected after Sony bought the Ericsson share out of the joint venture. It is landing exclusively on AT&T’s LTE network, just to spice things up. It is the first dual-core Xperia phone; it features 4.55″ HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon, 16GB of internal memory, plus a whopping 12MP camera with Exmor R sensor. As was mentioned, the Sony Xperia Ion will sport LTE connectivity, rounding up a pretty formidable Android high-end, which we can’t wait to get our mitts on and give this 12MP camera on the back the review treatment. Sony claims that it takes under two seconds to get the camera from standby mode to image capture, so speed will be on our side with the humongous 12MP sensor as well.

  • HTC Titan II

HTC Titan was not even 6 months old, but it seems HTC decided that its time to step up the camera game with its 16 MP camera. Yes, you read that right 16 MP camera on a phone. It was a pleasant surprise of sorts because HTC has been failing to excite us with their phones and although we can’t really tell how good the camera is with the count of megapixels but camera samples show that it will be one capable camera phone. The other specs are pretty much the same with LTE support, the same huge 4.7-inch LCD screen and a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor.

  • LG Spectrum

The 4.5″ True HD IPS goodness of the LG Spectrum is coming to Verizon with LTE connectivity. The latest flagship of the company has the shares specs with the Optimus LTE and the LG Nitro HD for AT&T, mainly since it is the same phone, but with Verizon’s 4G bands. That means we get 4.5″ 720×1280 pixels display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, 1GB RAM, and 8MP camera with 1080p video recording. Unfortunately, it will come with Andorid 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box, until it gets upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Unfortunately, we don’t know a lot about the device, but what we do know is that it will feature a 4.5″ 720p display and dual-LED flash with the camera. We can also assume that it is an Android device, although from the images we’ve seen in the keynote, it does seem to have that Mondrian UI layered on it.
