After the HTC EVO 4G, Sprint has snagged yet another Android superphone for release on its network — the Samsung Epic 4G.
The Samsung Epic 4G is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S, except that it’s a CDMA phone with WiMAX support. It will arrive on August 31 for $250 with a contract (after a rebate).
The hardware specifications of the Epic 4G are similar to the Galaxy S, except that it also has a sliding QWERTY keypad. It has a 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor, 512 MB RAM and comes with a 16 GB microSD card.
It will have the same 4 inch SuperAMOLED capacitive touchscreen display as the Galaxy S and will come with a 5 MP camera. It also has LED flash though, unlike the Galaxy S.
It will also have Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, GPS with A-GPS and a stereo FM Radio with RDS. It will be powered by a 1500 mAh battery and has dimensions of 125 x 65 x 14 mm with a weight of 155 gms.
It’s easily one of the best Android smartphones available.
