Supposedly the Samsung Epic 2 is coming to Sprint in the third quarter of 2011, but this is the hour and the phone has not been officially announced. The latest rumors suggest it would be presented soon.
The Samsung Epic 2 (model number SPH-D705) has recently appeared in the Cellebrite system (which is used by Sprint to transfer data from the phone). Normally, this should mean that the phone will come very soon, but we can not be sure of anything until Sprint to confirm it.
Like the original Samsung Epic 4G, the new Epic 2 has a sliding QWERTY keyboard, and is said to look exactly as it appears in the picture (published in August by PocketNow):
The Samsung Epic 2 should provide a single-core processor of 1.2 GHz, 4-inch QHD screen, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, and an 8 megapixel camera at the rear. It will be a high end device, so if it could start costing approximately $ 100 (in contract).
