Samsung Galaxy S II Headed To Sprint As The Epic 4G Touch

Thedroidguy team is live at the Samsung Galaxy S II US launch in New York City.  Kim Titus, Gavin Kim and the new Chief Marketing Officer for Samsung Mobile, Todd Pendleton, took us through all the features of the new Samsung Galaxy S II.  Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile are the U.S. launch partners.

The Samsung Galaxy S II is headed to Sprint on September 16th as the Epic 4G Touch.  The device will be available for just $199 on a new two year agreement and pre-order is available now for a $50 deposit at any Sprint corporate store.

More after the break

The Samsung Epic 4G Touch comes with a 1ghz dual core Exonys C210 processor, 8 mega pixel camera, front facing camera and the thinnest form factor in it’s class. It also features a wimax 4G radio to operate on Sprint’s 4G network. This is Sprint’s 27th 4G capable device.

A 4.52 inch superAMOLED plus screen will bring brilliant video over high speeds to the Samsung Epic 4G Touch.

“Sprint is proud to build on the success of the first Galaxy S product, Samsung Epic 4G, with the first U.S. device in the next generation of Samsung’s award-winning Galaxy S lineup, Epic 4G Touch,” said Fared Adib, vice president-Product Development, Sprint. “Epic 4G Touch is a powerful smartphone that delivers vibrant and exciting content at lightning fast speeds. This device is ultra-thin yet ultra-powerful with a screen that rivals anything else in the industry.”

Samsung Mobile President Dale Sohn added

“The Galaxy S II, Epic 4G Touch is the next-generation premium smartphone that delivers top-of-the-line features and design, as well as blazing fast speeds with Sprint’s 4G network and Samsung’s new Exynos dual core processor.”

So far we are hearing the the Samsung Galaxy S II will bare it’s own name at AT&T and T-Mobile and not “attain” and “hercules” respectively, as earlier reported.

So who’s going to get the Epic 4G Touch on September 16th and what happened to September 9th?
