Samsung and Sprint Announces Samsung Epic 4G
Samsung has been in the limelight for some time now with their new lineup of smartphones. First the Galaxy S 9000 was announced a few weeks back with Samsung aiming to crack the smartphone market share in its favor. The news today from Samsung is that theyâ€™re teaming up with Sprint for another Galaxy S smartphone device. The phone is named Epic 4G.
This smartphone features a 4-inch touchscreen, Samsung Hummingbird processor, a fully featured QWERTY keyboard and 5-megapixel 720p HD capable camera. Equipped with 16GB microSD flash memory (expandable upto 32GB), 1GB ROM and 512MB RAM along with a 1500maH battery, the phone will run on Googleâ€™s Android 2.1 operating system along with Touch Viz 3.0. Not much of a difference from the Galaxy S device announced earlier, although, Sprint is stressing that Android 2.2 will be made available on phone â€˜in the near futureâ€™. The Epic 4G will also have a front facing VGA camera for video calls.
The big difference which comes with this new smartphone is that it will be equipped to work on Sprintâ€™s rapidly expanding 4G network. Although no exact price and availability details are available yet, keep your fingers crossed as Samsung and Sprint will be announcing this very, very soon!
