After this morning's jump-the-gun leak revealed everything there is to know about the Sprint Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, you probably have a pretty good idea of what the device has in store. Pictures speak louder than words, though, and until you see the Epic 4G Touch in the flesh, you only know half the story. It is an absolutely beautiful device that truly lives up to its name.
To refresh your memory, the Epic 4G Touch has got some major goodies under the hood:
- 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display
- Ultra-thin (9.59mm) design
- Samsung Exynos 1.2GHz dual-core processor
- Wimax 4G radio
- Media Hub
- 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera
- Social Hub
- HD video recording
- Samsung Kies Air
- Wifi calling
- NOVA 2 HD pre-loaded
- Swype pre-loaded
- AES-256 internal/external hardware encryption
- Bluetooth 3.0
- Sprint ID
- Polaris Office
- Hotspot controls up to eight devices
- Android 2.3
- Optional USB Host kit for connection keyboards, cameras, printers and thumb drives
- Optional HDMI adapter
- Multimedia and Car docks will be available
Performance on the Epic 4G Touch, from what we can tell, is top of the line. Hiccups are absent and switching between homescreens, opening apps, and multitasking is smooth as can be. And that 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus is worth the price of admission ($199 on contract) alone. Colors are crisp, blacks are deep, and viewing angles are superb. There isn't much to say until you see it with your own eyes. Wow. Oh, and one more cherry on top-- The Epic 4G bucks the trend with an LED notification light. A welcome addition to this new crop from Samsung.
Like the rest of the Galaxy S II line, the Epic 4G Touch is thin and incredibly light. It's got the patented Samsung plastic feel, but that has grown on us. Take a gander at the rest of the shots from this evening's event, which should hold you over until the device hits the market on September 16.
