If you’re on Sprint and were waiting for the Epic 4G Touch (aka Sprint’s version the Galaxy S II Android superphone) then today is you’re lucky day. As promised, Sprint has finally released the Epic 4G Touch today and it’s now available for you to order for the standard superphone price of $199.99 with new 2 year contract and data plan.
For those who don’t know, the Epic 4G Touch is one of the most powerful 4G Sprint phones yet, with impressive specs like a 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus screens (like AT&T’s Infuse 4G. Basically, everything and anything you view on it will look insane), 8 megapixel back camera with 2 megapixel front camera (for higher quality video chatting), ridiculously thin design (it’s literally pencil thin!), the latest and greatest Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Samsung’s latest TouchWiz 3.0, 4G, 16 GB of built-in storage, and a super fast dual-core 1.2 GHZ processor (so you should never see any freezing or lag even when doing intense things like multitasking or gaming).
We haven’t yet had a chance to see the Epic Touch 4G in person but we have used its European cousin (which is pretty much the same as Sprint’s version but is simply called the Galaxy S II) and we gotta say– this looks to easily be up there with the Photon 4G and EVO 3D as one of Sprint’s top phones today and is definitely worth a strong look if you’re looking for an awesome new Sprint phone.

Well we now know for sure what Samsung will be announcing at their big New York event next week— the long-awaited US versions of their hit Android superphone, the Galaxy S II. Samsung has begun releasing some YouTube videos like the one above which, you guessed it, are all about how the US will finally soon be getting the Galaxy S II.
Not much else about the Galaxy S II is mentioned in this teaser video, though we now know that we should expect the US versions to keep the Galaxy S II’s insanely thin design, front cameras and large, amazing screens. If you’re looking for a new Android phone for back-to-school those features alone should make you want to wait to learn more about this.
Oh, and if you look closely at the Galaxy S II at the end of the video (or in the pic above) you’ll notice that it’s different from the European Galaxy S II Samsung otherwise is showing off in the teaser video. That Galaxy S II has a large button on the bottom below the screen while this Galaxy S II has no button and also lists Kanasas City in the weather widget. Now this is just a guess on our part but perhaps this is the Sprint version of the Galaxy S II (rumored to be called the Epic Touch 4G after Sprint’s first Galaxy S phone, the Epic 4G).This all fits in with the other rumors about Sprint’s Galaxy S II– including the rumored September 9th release date (which is also the date listed on the clock widget)– and Sprint is based right near Kansas City in Overland Park, Kansas. Check out the above video for yourself and let us know what you think.
Samsung also said on their Twitter that they will be releasing new US Galaxy S II info everyday at 10 AM Eastern, so who knows what will be revealed next. And don’t forget to check back here next week for everything you need to know on everything Samsung announces.
