Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch specs leak ahead of launch

So, we’ve already seen what the press images for the Samsung Galaxy S II variant for Sprint will look like, but that doesn’t mean you probably don’t want to see them again. As we probably should have guessed would happen, one of the three Galaxy S II variants for the US has slipped into the wild a little ahead of schedule, and it just so happens to be the version heading to Sprint. This version, featuring a subtle name like the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, is showing off its big beautiful screen again, but this time it brought its specifications list for the ride.

Here’s what we’re looking at: A device with a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display; a 1.2GHz Exynos dual-core processor under the hood; an 8MP camera around the back with a 2MP front-facing shooter; a chassis that measures in at only 9.59mm; WiMAX-connectivity; Sprint ID capable; Bluetooth 3.0; WiFi calling; and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) right out of the box. As with the original Samsung Galaxy S devices that made their way state-side, there’s also going to be some media preloaded onto some devices, with the Sprint version featuring NOVA 2 HD (a First Person Shooter game). You can see the breakdown of the specifications right below:

    4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display
    1.2GHz Exynos dual-core processor
    8-megapixel camera with HD video capture
    2-megapixel FFC
    Ultra-thin (9.59mm) design
    Mobile Hotspot for up to eight devices
    WiMAX connectivity
    Sprint ID
    Android 2.3 Gingerbread
    Bluetooth 3.0
    Wi-Fi calling
    Media Hub
    Social Hub
    Samsung Kies Air
    NOVA 2 HD preloaded
    Swype preloaded
    Polaris Office
    AES-256 internal/external hardware encryption
    Optional USB Host Kit for connecting keyboards, cameras, printers, and flash drives
    Optional HDMI adapter
    Multimedia and Car docks will also be available

So nothing coming as a major surprise here, but it will still be fun to watch Samsung unveil the device and show it off. Plus, we’re still waiting for a final release date, and a pricing scheme for each carrier. Stay tuned for Samsung’s event tonight, where the manufacturer will finally showcase the devices.
