Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch: Impresses Via VIDEO

Samsung’s new Galaxy S II handset is definitely a force to be reckoned with and news comes through for the device on a daily basis. For those Stateside, its just a matter of time before the welcomed addition will arrive bringing with it, different variants dependant on the chosen carrier. If recent news has any substance to it, then carrier Sprint will be the first to introduce their new Galaxy or Epic 4G Touch as its known.

Just a matter of days ago, our very own Debbie Turner reported that retailer “Wirefly” were allowing consumers to pre-order the device for a price of $149.99 as oppose to its standard price of $199.99. We advised you to get yours as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. General consensus is that the Galaxy S II in its varying form is needed in America and in order to fend off rival competitors, Samsung really need to get their skates on!

Today we wanted to tell you that Wirefly via their official YouTube channel, have given you a further taster of the Epic Touch 4G through a walk through video experience. The review as you will be able to see below, gives you a better insight into the phone before you make that final buying decision before what is rumored as its release of the 16th September.

Slight differences can be seen straight away from the international Samsung Galaxy S II and what will be the US Sprint version. Steering away from the 4.3-inch Super Amoled Plus display, the Epic includes a bigger 4.5-inch with 480 x 800 pixel resolution, dual-core Exynos processor and the new TouchWiz. PopHerald.com reported that the new Epic was in fact compared to the first generation Galaxy S model which released towards the tail end of 2010.

Similarities were noted from the start, particularly in appearance. Wirefly were keen to point out that the actual thickness of the Sprint model was the same if not close to the original S. Samsung’s Galaxy S II comes as a 8.5mm version whilst the Epic 4G Touch sports 9.6mm of thickness. One feature that will be different is that of the battery size. Currently the Galaxy S II global phone includes a 1650 mAh battery compared to Sprint’s whooping 1800 mAh.

Matched specs for both handsets include a 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor and that of Android’s 2.3.4 Gingerbread OS, 8 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel to the front. The Epic 4G benefits from 3G/4G mobile hotspot, Sprint’s 4G WiMax network use allowing the handset to support up to another eight devices, 16GB of storage, 1GB of RAM and so on.

Currently we are no further on in finding out when carriers AT&T and T-Mobile will be allowing you the pleasure of playing with the new Samsung addition. Indications point to the Sprint Epic 4G Touch retailing at a US price of $199.99 on a two-year data plan.

Will you be purchasing the Epic 4G Touch or one of the other variants? Are you disappointed that the big red Verizon will not be included this time?
