Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch

If you've got a hankering for a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch in white, get thee to thy nearest Sprint retail channel (in stores, online, and telesales) starting  Jan. 8, as that's when the pale version of the world's most obtusely named phone will be available. It'll cost you $199 on contract, and other than the paint job it's the same as the original SGSIIE4GT we reviewed in 2011.

Full presser's after the break.

Accessorize Your Winter Style

With a snowy winter sky in the forecast, Sprint and Samsung are getting ready to offer two new devices to keep tech-savvy enthusiasts warm: Samsung Galaxy S™ II, Epic™ 4G Touch in Frost White and M370 by Samsung in Pewter Gray. Both devices will make their debut in all Sprint retail channels, including Web Sales (www.sprint.com) and Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) on Sunday, Jan. 8.

Samsung Epic 4G Touch in Frost White will be available for $199.99 with a new two-year service agreement or eligible upgrade. Decked out from head-to-toe, Samsung Epic 4G Touch will complement your style while providing all the must-have wireless features including:

  • Dual-mode 3G/4G device – dependable 3G nationwide coverage and turbo-charged Sprint 4G speeds where available
  • Dual Camera: 8MP rear-facing camera/camcorder with auto-focus and flash that records HD video 1080p HD high profile and 2MP front-facing camera ideal for self-portraits or video chat
  • Samsung Exynos™ 1.2 GHz dual-core processor
  • Super AMOLED Plus 4.52-inch touchscreen (800x480 WVGA)
  • Android™ 2.3
  • 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capable, supporting up to eight Wi-Fi® enabled devices on the Sprint 3G or 4G networks
  • Visual Voicemail

Samsung Epic 4G Touch requires activation on one of the Sprint Everything Data plans, plus a required $10 Premium Data add-on charge for smartphones. Sprint’s Everything Data plan with Any Mobile, AnytimeSM includes unlimited web, texting and calling to and from any mobile in America while on the Sprint Network, starting at just $69.99 per month plus required $10 Premium Data add-on charge – a savings of $40 per month versus Verizon’s comparable plan with unlimited talk, text and 2GB web, or $10 per month versus Verizon’s 450-minute plan with unlimited text and 2GB web. The Mobile Hotspot option is also available for an additional $29.99 per month supporting up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously (pricing excludes taxes and surcharges).

Uncle Louie says:

That would be AWESOME.

And I honestly couldn't care less about a 4G radio, since I don't have it around my area anyway. The 3G is quite good, though.

I can't believe you didn't do a picture of it between 2 black ones...ICS anyone?

See now, I just refuse to buy this phone for the following reason:

If someone asks me what phone it is, it will take me 5 minutes to spew that name out.

When people ask me I usually just say it's the Galaxy S II or Epic Touch.

Orion78 says:

I'm just waiting for the GSIII or EVO2.

ummmn.... the 3D WAS the EVO 2 . . . And it brought it EVO brand down..... now the S3 will be EPIC . . . hopefully in 2012 Sammy gets better/sexier build materials.

Orion78 says:

Well I never considered it as a true sequel but whatever. I hope the GSIII comes earlier this year. Sprint better jump on that quick!

First white phone that looks nice, IMO. I like the silver accents.

Xbbfan73 says:

OMG I love it. I got the black but loving the white. I too say Epic Touch. So love my pjone by the way.

**looks at black GSII** "You are nothing to me..."

Uncle Louie says:

I like it! But since I use a TPU case for my phones (when available), I could really make it whatever color I wanted anyway.

TPU?

Uncle Louie says:

Yup. I have one for my EVO 4g, and love it. Kind of like this one...
