Samsung Epic 4G to launch in August?

Samsung Epic 4G

Samsung’s Support Product TV website may have revealed when the company plans to launch the much anticipated Samsung Epic 4G (part of its Galaxy S smartphone family). Slated to be Sprint’s second 4G handset, neither company has yet given any specific details as to when it would launch.

On August 20th, Samsung is planning to air an infomercial on the Samsung Epic 4G (SPH-d700). In itself, this might mean nothing. But the last two such shows (for the Vibrant and Captivate) both aired on the devices’ release date. I see a trend.

Samsung Epic 4G specifications:

  • Processor: 1GHz Samsung Cortex A8 Hummingbird
  • Operating system: Google Android 2.1 with Samsung’s Social Hub UI
  • Connectivity: CDMA/EV-DO Rev.A/WiMAX
  • Other connectivity: A-GPS, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi (with Mobile Hotspot capability), Bluetooth, DLNA
  • Display: 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen
  • Input: Slide-out QWERTY keyboard, virtual keyboard and Swype
  • Storage: microSDHC cards
  • Camera: 5MP primary camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, VGA front-facing camera

  • Battery: 1500mAh

Pricing information is not yet available.

Any takers out there?
