We now know that the Galaxy S Pro will be called the Samsung Epic 4G and will be coming to Sprint when it comes to the market in the next few months. It is no secret that the smartphone will have to battle it out with the recently released iPhone 4, but it will be the in-house fighting with the HTC EVO 4G, as they are very similar.
Chris Ziegler from Engadget explains that the upcoming Epic 4G talks a good fight when you look at the impressive spec sheet, but then again, so did the EVO 4G — and we all know how impressive that handset is. It is as if Sprint will use these two as a sort of tag-team to take the fight to the rest of the competition.
Looking at those specs that we discussed in a recent post we know that its 5-megapixel camera, front-facing VGA camera, 1GHz processor and 4-inch AMOLED screen — if they can get hold of any — looks every much as good as the new iPhone 4.
The Epic 4G will come with Android 2.1, as it will run on Samsung’s custom UI — although we are certain that 2.2 Froyo will be made available shortly after its release. We still do not have a release date or price, but we will keep you informed.
