They are the Altius, the Project J Mini Serrano and the Project J Active Fortius. The Altius is now expected to be the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Serrano is hinted at being the Galaxy S4 Mini and finally the Active Fotius is meant to be some sort of wearable smartwatch! Each of these will have a host of accessories which can be seen at the source link below!Via SamMobiles.
