Many Android phones were unveiled at CTIA Spring 2012


In case you don’t know, there was a very big Mobile Phone convention in New Orleans known as CTIA. It is a biannual Expo that happens in varying places, and it is a good way for companies to introduce mobile phones. I’m going to take the time to talk about what phones were on prominent display this year at CTIA Spring 2012.

We’ll start with the Sony Xperia GX. It has a 4.6 inch HD Reality Display with a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. Also included is 16GB of internal storage and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, built right in. In addition to the LTE connectivity, there is another bonus: a 13 Megapixel camera.

I’m sure that won’t be all that we’ll see from Sony, so let’s move on to LG, with 4G LTE U.S. Handsets. They have quite a few phones which include the Viper, which is made from 50 percent recycled materials and a 1.2GHz dual core processor.

Then there is the Spetrum, which has a 4.5 inch display, a Qualcomm 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, but is only at Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).

Also available is the LG Lucid, sporting a dual-core processor, 4-inch Corning Gorilla Glass touchscreen, a high-quality outdoor visibility, and an auto-adjust feature.

Then there is the Nitro HD, a 4G LTE smartphone with the 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. It also has a 4.5 inch screen with 16:9 HD aspect ratio, and 1280 x 720p display.

Then there is the LG Connect, also with Gingerbread and a 4-inch Gorilla Glass screen. It also has a 5 Megapixel rear camera with flash and a front-facing camera.

Then there is the HTC Evo V 4G, which is Virgin Mobile’s first 4G phone. It runs on Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, and a 4.3-inch Super LCD screen. Also here is a dual-lens 3D imaging system, and there is a switch for 3D and 2D modes.

In addition to these handsets from these major mobile players, the company Kyocera has created two smartphones that will also be available soon.

The first is the Hydro, it has Ice Cream Sandwich, with a Qualcomm MSM8655 SoC with 1GHz CPU. Also included is a 3.5 inch, 480 x 320 display, as well as a 3.2 Megapixel camera with LED flash and 1,500 mAh battery.

In addition to the Hydro, Kyocera also has the Rise, which also has Ice Cream Sandwich as well as an interesting bonus: a push button QWERTY keyboard. I have to admit, I didn’t think they were still making there anymore. The specs of the Rise are also similar to Hydro, but unlike the Hydro, the Rise doesn’t have its level of waterproofing.

I’m not certain what particular date that all of these phones will be available, but look for them if you are in the market for a new Android phone.
