Samsung Conquer at Sam's Club

And, finally, we round out the Launch Date Leakapolooza with Sprint, and the Samsung Conquer. That's the mid-level Android smartphone that a brief appearance on Sammy's website last week before being yanked. Specs, as you'll recall, include:

  • 3.5-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen
  • 1 GHz CPU
  • 3.2MP rear camera, 1.3MP front facing camera
  • Android 2.3 (without TouchWiz and with Sprint ID)
  • Tri-Band CDMA (including the 800MHz frequencies)

So, we may well see the Samsung Conquer by July 24. Also note that the Motorola Photon appears to be slated for July, which narrows things down a little more than just "coming soon."

Sam's Club looking to get Samsung Conquer by July 24


I am definitely looking forward to comparing the Evo 3D, the Sammy GS II and the Photon. This next upgrade is gonna be a tough choice for sure!!!

Why do I get a wierd feeling that the rumors of the 7/24 launch date for the GS II are not going to happen?

Yes this is the launch date 7/24, for the Conquer 4G, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and i believe the Motorola Titanium. There will be no GS2. The Within hasn't even been officially announced yet.

What do the "Linked to Epic" and "Linked to Zio" parts mean in the schedule? Are they EOLing the Epic?

They are probably reducing inventory and phasing out the Epic to make room for the Epic 1.5... I mean Epic 2. Except the 8MP shooter I already have the same phone.

Yeah, I'm still not totally clear on this Epic 2 vs. SGS II thing. Why are they even bothering with an Epic 2? Would Sammy not do an SGS II version with a physical keyboard?

Considering the number of times I've actually used my Epic's keyboard, I don't think I'll want one on my next phone. I'd rather get the thinner slab.

As a loyal VZW customer, its a little frustrating/annoying that its shaping up to see the Moto Photon on Sprint released prior to the Bionic. Moto - you got some 'splainin' to do.
