    Samsung Epic 4G Approaching Launch

    Samsung and Sprint will be introducing the latest 4G smartphone, the Epic 4G.  Steve Elfman, President of Sprint’s Network Operations and Wholesale, said in a press statement that Sprint has indeed taken another major leap forward by announcing a smartphone which is 4G capable. According to his statement, Samsung Epic 4G joins a prestigious and high-end portfolio of devices that offer high-def entertainment and the ease of the usability in the palm of the hand of the user. Omar Khan, the chief strategy officer for Samsung Mobile said that Samsung Epic is a powerful member of the Galaxy S smartphone group and offers hi-end features in the palm of the user.

    Samsung Epic 4G is a part of a latest breed of smartphones by the company which offers speed, intuitive user experience, and a fully integrated social networking and multimedia support. It has a light and slim slide QWERTY keyboard and an Super AMOLED touchscreen, another first of its kind. The device will also have access to the Samsung Media Hub, which will allow access to the latest in music and movies.

    Reports suggest that Sprint’s second 4G handset might land in August, possibly on or before the 20th. This tentative launch date is a based upon the fact that the Epic 4G is scheduled to debut on Samsung’s Galaxy S On Demand Live Show website on August 20th. Both the Vibrant and the Captivate episodes debuted on or after the handset’s respective launch dates, so the Epic 4G launch could be operating on a similar schedule. Additionally, Samsung updated its Twitter status on Friday with this- “the Sprint Epic 4G is arriving in a few weeks. It’s the 4G #GalaxyS”. Though it is not as solid as an official confirmation, these two pieces seem to point to an August launch for this highly anticipated 4G handset.
